Roy Lichtenstein – “Landscapes in the Chinese Style” @ Gagosian Gallery (Hong Kong)

Our Hong Kong correspondent, Layla Kawashima, recently stopped by the Gagosian to take some photos of the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition before it closed. Landscapes in the Chinese Style consists of a collection of lesser known works from the famous pop artist that features his reinterpretation of traditional Chinese painting. He states: “I think (the Chinese landscapes) impress people with having somewhat the same kind of mystery (historical) Chinese paintings have, but in my mind it’s a sort of pseudo-contemplative or mechanical subtlety…I’m not seriously doing […]

KRINK @ Loft in Space

Several weeks ago, Loft in Space in Hawaii hosted a show from Craig Costello with new site-specific paintings and sculptures. The showspace in Oahu was the site of last year’s POW WOW and run by Jasper Wong, co-owner of Above Second where the AM-curated East West Connect is currently showing.

Anthony Lister – “Bogan Paradise” @ Gallery A.S.

Prolific Aussie artist Anthony Lister (interviewed) recently put on a show with Gallery A.S. entitled Bogan Paradise. After plastering Los Angeles with his work in August, this new show in his home country is staged in a recently de-zoned sex shop in Sydney’s Chinatown and challenges conceptions of the Australian identity – those attributes perceived as both positive and negative. In particular, Lister explores Larrikinism, “the name given to the Australian folk tradition of irreverence, mockery of authority and disregard for rigid norms of propriety.” More photos via Slamxhype after the […]

Showing: Lucien Smith – “Cripple Creek” @ Ritter / Zamet (London)

After working under Dan Colen for a time, recently graduating from Cooper Union, one of the oldest and most respected art institutions, and gaining representation by OHWOW, Lucien Smith has momentum and pedigree working in his favor, and over the past couple months has burst onto the art scene in a big way.

The showing is on until the end of the year so you have plenty of time to check it out.  Also, read this insightful interview with McFetridge about the […]

Openings: Mars-1 – “Everything Under The Sun” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

Mars-1 opened up his show, Everything Under The Sun (previewed) to a packed house at Fecal Face Dot Gallery’s temporary space in the inner Richmond area of San Francisco Saturday night (the gallery’s usual spot is under renovation due to a fire at a neighboring building). The show included a few large scale paintings, including a tondo continuing his eye boggling Infinite Tapestry series. The centerpiece of the show was a sculpture installation filled with extra extraterrestrial creatures and landscapes that would seem to dwell […]

Showing: ROA – “Paradox” @ FORM Gallery

If you remember back in July, Belgium street phenomena, ROA, had a showing at the Skalitzers in Berlin. Now the good people at that gallery have arranged a show (which opened last night “down under”) for him at the FORM Gallery in Perth entitled Paradox. Like with his participation in the Wide Open Walls project in Gambia, ROA worked in some easily recognizable local creatures that are unique due to Australia’s long geographic isolation. More photos after the jump…
