Schoening’s explosive work captures frozen moments in time, and this new show is inspired & informed by his recent relocation. He describes […]

Openings: sPy – “Urbana” @ SC Gallery – Bilbao, Spain

Urban interventionist sPy opened his debut solo show last week in his home country of Spain. Entitled “Urbana”, the show features a collection of photographs chronicling the pranksters recent works in Europe and New York City. Dubbed the “Spanish Banksy” by the media, sPy’s work focuses on alterations of the urban landscape, a rarity in that he refrains from using the traditional means and methods of graffiti/street art ie: stencils, wheatpastes or aerosol. Simultaneously whimsical and subversive, sPy’s situational art seems to be pushing the […]

Cy Twombly Paints for the Ceiling of the Louvre

Contemporary artist and legend Cy Twombly was recently commissioned by the Louvre to create a mural to for the ceiling of one of its oldest wings. This is an honor bestowed to only two other artists before Twombly and the first for an American artist. For one of world’s most prestigious museums, Twombly chose to contrast it’s rich history of complex classical art with an abstract contemporary flare by utilizing a canvas with a blue hue with floating geometric discs emblazoned with the names of […]

Preview / Setup: Armsrock & Imminent Disaster – “Refuge” @ Thinkspace Gallery

Opening tonight at Thinkspace alongside Tran Nguyen will be a joint show from Armsrock (interviewed) and Imminent Disaster entitled “Refuge”. Slated as the last show before the gallery moves into their Culver City location, it looks like the two artists are taking this opportunity to put in some massive immersive installs. Inspired by “tent cities,” temporary places of living for those who have no where else to go, the show is an allegory that alludes to the fact that we all are stuck on a […]
