I just saw the preview and BAST has taken things up a notch with hand-painted acrylic works on canvas playing off his mixed-media collage style as well as some beautiful sculptural wall pieces. If in London this week, don’t miss it! More […]

As the art world becomes increasingly year-round, eventually there will probably be no lulls in the calendar at all. More listings after the jump…

June has begun and with it an onslaught of shows across the globe. Leading the charge this week, due to the sheer breadth of shows, is Los Angeles. The massive Culver City Art Walk takes places this Saturday with many of the galleries doing special group shows for this event and if you still have it in you after trekking about Culver City there are huge shows from the likes of, Mike Stilkey (interviewed), Skullphone and a showing of later works from Andy Warhol at the […]

NYC is the place to be this weekend – Ryden, Julie Heffernan, Faile/Bast, and Shepard Fairey – just a stunning lineup of shows offering something for every taste. Shepard’s big show at Deitch is by far leading the charge – the turnout for this show should really keep the local officials on their toes considering it’s the end of an era as well, with this being the final show at Deitch’s space before he turns his attention to MOCA in Los Angeles. This is one […]
