Interviews: Jin Young Yu

If you remember, we were quite intrigued with Jin Young Yu’s transparent sculptures that were displayed at the Pulse Fair at Art Basel Miami last year. We were lucky enough to be able to interview her because of the efforts of AM friend Stella Im Hultberg (interviewed), who provided the translation for the Korean sculptor as well as added some questions of her own. Check out the interview after the jump.

Preview/Interviews: Dan May @ Copro Nason

Dan May’s show “Slow Collison” opens this Saturday, February 7th at Copro Nason.  His lush environments and monsters are as eye catching now as they were when we first saw his work on flickr several years ago.  Of course, his work has evolved and become more rich with fantastic compositiona and “story-telling.”  Dan takes some time to answer some questions for us about his current show as well as plans for the rest of 2009.  Check the interview and some preview pics after the jump.

One of the exhibitions we have been looking forward to this month is Mark Dean Veca’s “Paintings, Wall Drawings, and Collaborations” (teased) at the University Art Gallery at UC San Diego opening tomorrow, Jan 29th, 6 – 8:30 pm. His psychadelic and organic style is unique and has often been described as a mixture of pop culture imagery and 18th Century French “Toile de Jouy” style patterns. As relatively new fans of his, we were particularly interested in learning more about his work as this […]

Preview/Interviews: Craola @ Fifty24SF

Greg Simkins, or as he is popularly known, Craola (something he kept from his graffiti days) is opening his first show of 2009 at Fifty24SF on February 5th.
