Tomorrow night (September 15th) in Los Angeles, Arcadia Contemporary will be presenting some recent paintings from John Brosio. The new body of work includes many of the locally-based artist’s suburban landscapes, tinged with surreal features in the background like dinosaurs, natural disasters, and the monsters – with unsuspecting people in the foreground going about their daily life. Brosio also intriguing injects some two dimensional elements into his imagery, such as trees that look like flat props or creatures that are nothing more than childlike drawings. Discuss John […]
Last weekend, YESNIK and Jaybo presented some new works for fans in Los Angeles with a surprisingly cohesive three day pop up show. Presented by F-U (For the Unconventional), For Better or Worse featured totemic nature-inspired works from the San Diego-based YESNIK that had a collage-like feel to the balanced compositions alongside Berlin-based Jaybo Monk’s portrait mashups which were described as “a fractured vision of contemporary society.” Both artists contributed sculptural pieces to exhibition – an eclectic selection of assemblages from Jaybo and some large-scale three dimensional representations of YESNIK’s imagery […]

This Saturday night (September 15th), Cinta Vidal will be presenting her new solo show at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles. Entitled Viewpoints, the exhibition features the Barcelona-based artist’s wonderful gravity-defying and Escher-esque imagery. Spanning complex architectural compositions, the natural world, as well as clusters of people, pets, and furniture, Vidal’s imaginative paintings draw the eye in. The viewer begins to trace the different perspectives that are interconnected in each piece, trying they hardest to resist turning their heads sideways or upside down to match each vantage point. […]
Over the weekend, Tomoo Gokita took a step forward to the next stage of his career with his first showing at Blum & Poe in Los Angeles. Created entirely on square canvases, the new body of work continues the Japanese artist’s practice of working in monochrome, creating portraits that take their cue from pop culture or art history. As we have come to expect, Gokita masterfully renders his subjects with varying shades of black, white, and gray, in an alternatively realistic and abstract technique, oftentimes with the faces […]

This Saturday night (September 8th), Daniel Arsham takes us 1000 years into the future with an expansive new exhibition entitled 3018. Hosted by Perrotin’s New York location, the locally-based artist’s 15th showing with the gallery includes many examples from his oeuvre – all which challenge the viewer to reconsider their ideas architecture & permanence, and to question their senses. Headlining the new body of work of course are his signature “future archeology” objects with two showstoppers that will evoke some nostalgia – a 1981 Delorean, of Back […]
After a 10 year break from exhibiting in New York, Mike Davis returns on September 10th for a solo show at Spoke Art’s location in NYC. Entitled Fate Of The Union, the San Francisco-based artist will be exploring themes of social and political dichotomies through his surrealistic paintings that take influence from the work of Flemish Primitives such as Bosch, Bruegel and van Eyck. Steeped in symbolism, Davis’ imagery features reoccurring motifs like keys, ufos, birds, snakes, ladybugs and butterflies which inhabit his bizarre world filled with hybrid creatures and […]
