Openings: Brian Viveros – “The Dirtyland” @ Thinkspace Gallery

A couple weeks ago, Brian Viveros’ “The Dirtyland” exhibition opened at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. The immersive exhibition featured paintings, drawings, one-off hand-finished prints, installations, sculptural work (with the help of Gustavo Ponce), and video from the Riverside based artist all inspired by his fascination with Hispanic culture in general (bull-fighting, day of the dead, luchadores, etc) and of course, nicotine. When we visited his studio before the show, Brian was really excited to have a large space all to himself to fully […]

Releases: Jeff Soto – The Deek @ NYCC

Veteran new contemporary artist and occasional vinyl toy architect Jeff Soto is set to release his newest vinyl creation next Saturday, October 9th at NY Comic Con. Hot on the heels of his Seeker figure recently released at SDCC (covered), The Deek is the next release in the KidRobot Black line, a series of one-off, uber-limited figures sharing a common monochromatic color palette. Standing 6.5″ tall and limited to 150 pieces, the sculpt teased by KR looks to be a bolder, perhaps more enraged relative […]

Teaser: Joe Sorren – “Interruption” @ Grand Central Art Center

Our friends at the go-to Bay Area art resource, Fecal Face (coverage of their 10 year show here), were able to recently pick sculptor Jud Bergeron’s brain about his collaboration with Joe Sorren (featured) for the acclaimed painter’s first retrospective exhibit, slated to open at California State University Fullerton’s Grand Central Art Center (GCAC) in Santa Ana on Saturday, November 10th. In an effort to shed some light on the collection of unique sculptures produced exclusively for this milestone occasion, entitled “Interruption”, the insightful interview […]

Showing: Jeff Koons – “Popeye Sculpture” @ Galerie Jerome De Noirmont

Jeff Koons recently opened his latest solo exhibition at Galarie Jerome De Noirmont, further exploring his “Popeye Sculpture” series. Filling the Paris space with some of his signature “balloon” sculptures perched precariously in various formations, Koons brings new life to the works while adding some new twists like an appearance by Olive Oyl. Visiting Paris now would be an ideal time for contemporary art lovers as Koons and his pal Murakami at Versailles pack a nice one-two punch. More images from Koons’ show after the […]

Openings: Herakut – “Hope’s Reply” @ LeBasse Projects

AM stopped by LeBasse Projects this past weekend to attend the opening of “Hope’s Reply”, collaborative duo Herakut’s newest solo show. Melding a perfect combination of the raw stylings of the beautiful Hera (interviewed) and the amazing photorealism of Akut, the German street duo impressed with the richness and whimsy of their new body of work. We were also pleasantly surprised to see that the artists decided to work on an installation for this show as it was originally billed as having a more of […]

Openings: Anthony Lister @ The Standard Hotel – NYC

Last week, AM attended the opening for Anthony Lister’s (interviewed) art installation for the Standard Hotel in NYC. This unique exhibition has Anthony creating a special sculpture edition of masks, guns, knives and more using his renowned style. Each mixed media original is hand created and painted by Mr. Lister with 30 pieces in the collection created exclusively for the Standard. Most of the works were snatched up immediately, but you may contact the store to purchase remaining pieces here. Even though the city was overloaded […]

Fame Fest ’10: Slinkachu

Probably one of the last artists (see other artists here) to stop by Grottaglie before the Fame Festival opening next weekend is street miniature photographer Slinkachu. The London-based artist worked his magic with his street installations in the Italian town that would probably go unnoticed if you didn’t know where to look. Fortunately, he documents and photographs his clever works for all to enjoy. More pics after the jump…
