Here is Part II of our visit to Jeff Soto’s studio (see part I here). Besides showing us some of his new work for his upcoming show at the Riverside Art Museum, Jeff also decided to let us watch him paint. At first, there were just splotches of color he used as the background, but soon characteristic shapes and details were added. It was a real joy to watch Jeff at work and amazing how quickly he worked. See the process after the jump.
Hush’s show Desensitized (previewed) opened up at Opus Gallery a couple nights ago. His return to Newcastle (where he studied Graphic Design & Illustrator at Newcastle school of Art & Design for 5 years) was marked by street installations and a exhibition of his characteristic melding of the asian influences of his travels with the style of UK street art. Photo of the opening after the jump.
A new celebration video for Obama came out recently by will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas.Â What’s interesting is that alot of the street art and iconic images from his campaign were incorporated from artists such as Shepard Fairey, Ron English, and even Josh Keyes (not sure why?).Â Also stopped by Subliminal Projects last night to see the “Letters and Ligatures” show and chatted a little with Shepard Fairey and he told us that some of the video was filmed on the roof and around […]
Last night’s show “The Drawing Room” (previewed) at Thinkspace opened with a tremendous showing by art fans. The long line snaked outside from the beginning to end with the gallery packed to maximum capacity. Not only were the fans there to see Audrey Kawasaki (curator) & her work, they were there for the many other talented artists that participated in the show. Photos after the jump.
Our friend Rhinomilk sent us some photos from the Paul Insect opening last night at Fifty24SF. The entrance to the gallery looked pretty badass with all of the baby head images plastered over the walls and ceilings. Follow us inside … after the jump.
Kirsten from Roq La Rue has sent us an early look at the installation Tessar Lo working on for his two-person show (teased) with Moira Hahn opening tomorrow. That large installation he is setting up looks pretty insane with it’s patchwork of different sized pieces and mediums. Wish we could be there to watch this textured patchwork slowly take shape. More photos after the jump along with a glimpse at Moira’s works well.

AM friend Rhinomilk sent some pics of setup for the Paul Insect show at Fifty24F Gallery for our readers to peruse.Â This show, his first solo in the States, is entitled “Idea of Freedom” and will open tomorrow night in SF. “The exhibition aims to bring to our attention how our ‘idea of freedom’ is simply a facade for technology’s overbearing reach into our everyday lives and happiness. How ‘hope’ is measured by new emails and updates on our favorite blogs and sex sites. How […]
