Openings: Nathan Mabry – “Armature” @ Cherry and Martin

Currently on view at Culver City’s always exciting gallery Cherry and Martin is Nathan Mabry’s Armature. The exhibition features five new sculptures and a sculptural fountain. The aluminum, bronze, and steel works are wonderfully odd, humorous, engaging, and both familiar and unexpected.  The artwork references such artists as Picasso and other modernists while at the same time influenced by African and Native American art. It’s a fantastic show and you should see it before it closes on Feb. 12. See more images after the jump…

Auction Results: “Urban Art” @ Bonhams 1/11/11

If today’s Urban Art auction at Bonhams can be seen as an indicator for the overall health of the Urban/Street Art market,  then things are looking absolutely strong, exciting, and prosperous.  Most lots found buyers and all the major pieces in the sale found new owners. The most notable result was Shepard Fairey’s Peace Goddess on maple from the Sea No Evil benefit auction in 2008, which surpassed everyone’s expectations and sold for over double the high estimate, at $43,000.  Among in-the-know Shepard Fairey collectors, […]

Openings: Gardar Eide Einarsson – “Power Under Construction” @ Honor Fraser

This past Saturday saw the opening of Gardar Eide Einarsson’s second exhibition with Honor Fraser.  The politically rebellious artist’s show included minimalist black & white artwork using found objects and appropriated imagery.  The main piece of the show consisted of a installation of rubber car tires and casts of sharpened bamboo sticks.  Meant to recreate and recontextualize the makeshift street barricades found in Thailand, the piece references ’60s installations and happenings, such as Allan Kaprow’s Yard. See more of it and the rest of the […]
