In a project that most have been aware of for quite a while, it appears that the KAWS x BAPE Dissected Milo figures will see the light of day very soon. With the character appearing on a series of shirts from a few years back, and also getting a reprise with BAPE’s 2011 Spring Collection, it was only a matter of time before it was manifest in vinyl form. Coming in at 8″ in height and most likely produced in the same editions of the […]

Opening tonight at Fecal Face Dot Gallery in San Francisco is Fish-Work, a showing of images from photographer and fisherman Corey Arnold. The Portland based artist, who splits his time between capturing photographs and fish, will be offering a body of new work harvested from his recent three month fishing excursion in Europe, coupled with some older images from his seven year stint aboard the crab boat “Rollo” on the Bearing Sea. As an actual fisherman, who was featured on the first two seasons of […]
Dynamic contemporary artist, José Parlá, will be setting his hometown New York City stomping grounds ablaze next month with a new solo exhibition, entitled Walls, Diaries, and Paintings (teased). The former street artist, who has become of master of his own brand of mixed media calligraphic work, started off the year already with a bang in Toronto with two huge murals (covered). By the looks of these preview images, he appears more than ready to keep the momentum rolling with this new body of work. […]

Rounding out Roq La Rue’s two-person exhibition this weekend, showing alongside Brian Despain’s Tin Machines and Mercuric Dreams (previewed), will be popsurrealist Mia (interviewed). The show will provide the Los Angeles-based artist’s first opportunity since last fall’s three-person show at Corey Helford Gallery (covered) to unveil a new body of work. With the female form taking center stage in often fantastical scenarios, The Secret Keepers will give the artist a chance to continue telling her story. Check out a preview after the jump.
To build the anticipation for The Magicians Garden a little further, here is a snapshot from Josh Keyes’ studio, where he appears to have fully fleshed out the painting that we teased last month in its conceptual phase. Although it’s presumed that this show will be on the smaller side due to the spatial constraints of the gallery, Josh clearly is putting his all into the handful of works that will be exhibited, especially this one which looks to yet again continue the trend of […]
While Matthew Palladino ended 2010 with authority, sending a full body of brilliantly executed work down to Art Basel Week with Baer Ridegeway (covered) in December, he looks primed to continue the snowball of momentum with a new batch of his bizarrely mesmerizing paintings on tap for The Armory Show in New York. Running from March 3 – 6, Fredricks & Freiser Gallery will be showing off the Philadelphia based artist at the main event during the late winter fair season in the Big Apple. […]
New York-based artist, Ryan McLennan, will be traveling to Denver this coming weekend with a new body of work in tote for art enthusiasts in the Mile High City. Opening Friday, January 28th in tandem with Laura Ball (previewed) at David B. Smith Gallery, New Works (teased) will showcase the adept painterly realism coupled with subtly surrealistic compositions for which the West Collection recognized as worthy of their Grand Prize last year. An impressive accomplishment, indeed, for the young artist, who’s work centers around a […]
As part of a two person exhibition on tap next weekend at David B. Smith Gallery, Laura Ball will bring her animal imagery to Denver in striking fashion. Opening Friday, January 28th, New Works (teased) will highlight a series of the California artist’s watercolor works on paper, where colorfully rendered landscapes are set upon stark white backdrops thus sharpening the drama of the scenarios. Disparate animals are playfully clumped together as one to create larger animal forms, perhaps proving commentary on the interconnectedness of all […]
Seattle-based contemporary artist Scott Musgrove is a master of his craft. One of the preeminent members of the popsurrealist movement, he is known not only for his endless imagination in dreaming up extinct animal species and the wild worlds they inhabit, but also for his painterly expertise with oils in executing his whimsical vision. This technical proficiency and fantastical creativity was on full display during his solo exhibition, How Is The Empire? (covered), with Jonathan LeVine Gallery last year. For collectors and art enthusiasts alike, […]
