Returning to the site of his last solo show (covered), Dave MacDowell (interviewed) presented a new body of work over the weekend at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. Entitled Project Mayhem, the exhibition certainly caused some damage that as MacDowell targeted anyone and everyone with his special form of caricatured satire – from religious, to political figures, and pop culture icons. Take a look at more photos from the opening below… Photo credit: theonepointeight for Arrested Motion. Discuss this show here. Discuss David MacDowell here.

Last night, AM stopped by the private opening of Cyrcle.’s new solo show titled Organized Chaos! Taking place in Los Angeles, this new exhibition by the two-man collective focuses on the central idea of the cube and the way in which bees and flowers relate to society as a whole. It’s interesting to point out that unlike most exhibitions in which art is supposed to hang on a wall, this show actually invites the viewer to interact with the artwork itself. Various pieces are made up of […]
This past weekend, AM had a chance to visit L.A.-based art collective Cyrcle. as they prepare to unveil their second solo show, which takes place this Friday in the city of Los Angeles. Titled Organized Chaos!, this new body of work shows a continuing evolution of both their style and aesthetic so people who have been following their work will be pleasantly surprised when they see what the group have been up to as of late. Using the cube as the central idea behind the show, as […]
Recently, celebrated Brazilian DJ/Producer Amon Tobin arrived in Los Angeles and played the last leg of his North American tour over at the famed Greek Theatre. Titled ISAM 2.0, this second reiteration of this tour, is a visual masterpiece layered with Tobin’s unique sound design and rhythmic style that’s unlike most electronic music out there today. Tobin, who entered the scene in the mid-90’s through his still current label Ninja Tune, has been evolving as an artist. Whereas his music was once more akin to drum […]
This past weekend, the Merry Karnowsky gallery unveiled new work by artist Mark Whalen (also known as Kill Pixie). Titled “Portals”, this new exhibition by the Australian artist shows a progress in style from the last time he showed at this same gallery. Last week, we showed you a glimpse into his artistic process via a teaser video (covered), and here with the culmination of his hard work, we see him once again incorporating a collection of extremely detailed and geometric artwork, black on black […]
Last Saturday night, Mel Kadel unveiled new works for her Stuck On A Wave solo during an opening reception at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Showing alongside the cosmic and pattered work of Mark Whalen, the Los Angeles-based Kadel’s imagery also featured patterns of her own, oftentimes backdrops of collaged repeating elements for her characters to play in. As referenced by the title of the show, this time around, the auto-biographical caricatures of herself were seen at times rowing through the patterns as if they were on water. The show will […]
During the past month, the art collective known as Cyrcle. had been secretly working on what is perhaps one of the biggest murals in Los Angeles standing today. Finished in the last week or so and now unveiled, the piece titled Magic Is Real is a precursor to the group’s upcoming solo show happening in mid-November. Utilizing a clean style of lettering as well as references to the Ouroboros, microscopic organisms, and an overall design that feels different than most murals, this wall is a step up […]

Over the weekend, the debut show at Perry Rubenstein’s newly opened Los Angeles gallery featured new works from Shepard Fairey. Entitled Americana, the exhibition showcased eleven new works, each one inspired by the songs, such as Oh Susannah, This Land Is Your Land and Clementine from Neil Young’s new album Crazy Horse. “Fairey says he listened to the music and lyrics to come up with concepts for visual representations of the songs. Then for each song, Fairey presented Young with ideas about a visual image that would best capture the meaning and/or protagonist/s in each song. The […]
Over the weekend, the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles welcomed local artist Nicola Verlato and his new paintings into their showspace with an opening reception. The new works collectively entitled Zero Gravity are beautiful executed with his characters and objects suspended in midair as if frozen in time. We already caught a glimpse of the new body of work during a studio visit last week, but nothing beats seeing the paintings in situ. Check out Verlato’s cinematic vision for yourself before the show closes on September 1st if in […]
