Any sneakerheads out there will recognize Dave White’s oil paintings immediately.Â Perhaps generously described as the “Warhol of our generation” and well-known to the mainstream because his corporate collaborations with the likes of Nike & Coca Cola, it was actually his sneaker portraits that first attracted our attention.Â He has since moved on to other subjects such as Super Cars, Star Wars, and more recently Superhero paintings. Dave had a brief exhibition that ended last Sunday at the Kounter Kulture art fair produced by Opus […]

Here is a nice interview of Tessar Lo about his upcoming show at Roq La Rue (previously teased). This video is one of the many by Modus Films in a ongoing series called Analog Color: mini-documentaries of contemporary art.Â Look for some upcoming Modus Films x Arrested Motion collaborations…
Judging from an early look at Kukula’s body of work for her upcoming show at Copronason, perhaps we will be seeing more of the softer side from her (which we first noticed in her works for her last solo at Thinkspace). Gone are the carved out organs, gimp suits, and tortured stuffed animals… Sounds like her work was quite morbid in the past…maybe it was, but if you have ever seen it in person, you would agree that no matter the subject material, she has […]
Fully Visual, maker of metal figures in the vinyl dominated world of art toys, has carved out a niche for themselves. After successfully producing fine hand-cast metal figures for the likes of Kozik, Joe Ledbetter, Tim Biskup, and Gary Baseman, they will be releasingÂ “Shithead” – based on the work of Luke Chueh. On October 21st (11 AM PST), 100 pieces will beÂ made available,Â with one being the chase (gold piece). More after the jump.
Andy Kehoe’s work initially caught our eye because of his masterful creation of desolate yet beautiful landscapes that capture the essence of human loneliness.Â Seeing his creatures in the isolated environments prompts us think of how tiny we really are compared to the vastness of nature.Â Â What makes his work even more interesting after the first glance is that his seemingly peaceful scenes are contrasted by the undertones of unease and violence in his characters and their actions. A three-person show called “The Wonder” opens […]
Last Saturday, Tim Biskupâ€™s show â€œO/S (Operating System)â€ opened at Addict Galerie in Paris (previously posted). Although no stranger to international travel, he appeared to be excited to be exhibiting in France when we talked to him at Baby Tattooville. The works turned out pretty amazing… continuing his “pixelated” style and pairing each painting with a custom pedestal. Priced at $6500-$15,500, we believe some of these are still available for purchase. Check out all the photos after the jump.
“The Wondermental” is the title of Lola’s upcoming show at Corey Helford Gallery on October 25th. The theme for the show is an “enchanting visual adventure about a young boy’s journey into the unknown.” Perhaps inspired by experiences as a mother, her paintings always feature children in various fairytale settings. To fully appreciate her shows, one must take in every painting as piece of a puzzle that when put together form an intricate story. Her attention to detail is amazing and inevitably our attention is […]
We were wondering what the large wooden installation (previously posted) was that Ai Yamaguchi was working on for her Roberts & Tilton show. Well, the photo you see above is the mural inside which could only be accessed by climbing in the structure (“shoelessly” we might add). More photos of the opening after the jump.
Looks like the Faile collective is working on something a little different for their upcoming show in London. They will be taking over an abandoned schoolhouse (seem to be a common Lazarides tactic nowadays) in Vauxhall for a ten-day project with the opening planned for November 7th. Their show, entitled “Lost the Glimmering Shadows” will be incorporating some Native American imagery along with their distinctive torn poster look. This image as well as the one after the jump show them hard at work…
Looks like KAWS has gone back to work after his successful Miami exhibit because we noticed a new painting on the Gering & Lopez KAWS exhibition page. This painting is entitled “Perils” and is a pretty large at 68″ x 86.”Â Since it hasn’t appeared before, we believe this piece will be at the upcoming November exhibit in New York. Â We can’t begin to imagine how much a painting of this size would command (or what they would price it at) considering we know […]
