Vhils has certainly come along way since his days with a chipping hammer next to a Banksy in the Cans Festival of 2008. This is a perfect example of an artist being catapulted onto the main stage for all the right reasons. In recent years, he has had solo shows around the globe including – China, Paris, Brazil, and most recently back in his home away from home at Lazarides in London. There is one thing we can always count on from this young artist, […]

For nearly two decades, the name Joe Sorren has been synonymous with an ability to create a story of endless interpretation within his works. If you have been following the surrealism painters of the modern age, then you certainly know the name and the work. But who is Joe Sorren? The man behind the art has remained somewhat of an enigma. He is seclusive perhaps borderline reclusive, especially in regards to his sanctuary of creation. Sorren firmly believes his art should speak without having to speak […]
Shannon Bonatakis is a painter living among the blissful fairy-tale forests of Denver, Colorado. When she is not climbing her favorite tree she is spending her days juggling various illustration projects, and her nights huddled over wet canvas (most likely painting by candle-light). Having been acquainted with Shannon’s brush work for many years now, we can comfortably say without question, this girl puts painstaking hours into refining each piece she pushes out. Her solo show, titled Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is up at Rivet Gallery and […]
We first got acquainted with Ben Eine in the 2005 holiday tradition known as Santa’s Ghetto. Since then Ben has traveled the globe putting his clever alphabetical color combinations up for the whole world to see (fans include Prime Minister Cameron who sent over a painting to the Obama’s, welcoming the first family into the White House). Most recently Ben has been working like an elf during Christmas gearing up for the group show he’s participating in at the Charles Banks Gallery. He has been linked up with an […]
Recently, the James Cohan Gallery hosted Trenton Doyle Hancock‘s show, appropriately titled …And Then It All Came Back To Me. This is an incredible body of work, and as timing sometimes goes, brought out the ‘best of the best’ in the post Sandy NYC Chelsea arts district. This exhibit focuses hard on thickly layered mixed-media works, installations, with a slice of taxidermy folklore – the entire collection of work seemingly very emotionally charged. “Word-plays, palindromes, maxims and proverbs” add to the the visual imagery and set the […]
If you have never seen the work of Tiffany Bozic in person, then there is no better time than the present. Her solo show Transformation sprawled through-out the Joshua Liner Gallery this past month and will run through December 1st. Tiffany has devoted her young life nerding out on the intricacies of nature. Not just on a recreational level, but scientifically as well, no doubt drawing inspiration from her specimen studies at the the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco where she now resides. Given the […]
As we promised you a few weeks back, FAILE has unveiled their newest creation with Mongolian Sculptor, Bat Munkh. Entitled Wolf Within, the 5 meter fiberglass and steel creation was unveiled October 12th at National Garden Park, a new 1650 acre project in the heart of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. This piece was created in conjunction with the global Tiger Translate initiative that aims to uncover the best emerging creative talents across Asia and provide them with opportunities to collaborate with their more established Western counterparts. While […]
Ryan Travis Christian has been busy preparing for his The Second Banana exhibition opening tonight over at Guerrero Gallery. His latest solo show incorporates painting, sculpture, video and some massive instillation. From what we have seen, this work dives, not only deeper into the the finer things in life we all enjoy such as the love of a childhood sports, but also goes as far as exploring the more tabu subjects found within general mainstream society just under the surface. Normally lighter illustration based pieces seem to […]
Over the years we have followed FAILE to China, Spain, the UK and way too many remote locations to list, but never did we expect to be crossing the seas to a place where the horse runs wild, Buddhism is the law of the land and the beef is no doubt to die for. That’s right ladies and gentleman, FAILE is headed to Ulan Bator, Mongolia, working in collaboration with Mongolian Sculptor, Bat Munkh and Arrested Motion is going to be bringing you all the […]
