Continuing to expand on a recent body of work last seen in Hong Kong (covered), Mr. will be opening a new show tomorrow night (January 19th) at Perrotin Gallery in Paris. Entitled Mr.’s Melancholy Walk Around the Town, the new work from the Superflat movement artist features more of his anime inspired works portraying young girls in a ero-kawaii style, made personal when considering it is billed as a “wider reflection upon solitude, social anxiety, impotence and fear.” Check out more photos of the setup below… Photos courtesy of ©︎2011-2018 […]

Showing: YESNIK @ LUX Art Institute

Last weekend, north San Diego saw the opening of YESNIK’s latest solo show at the LUX Art Institute in Encinitas. On view through the end of March, the museum exhibition features paintings, sculpture, and murals where the locally-based artist reimagines the textures, colors, and shapes of the natural world into abstract totemic compositions. The work is a continuation of his recent direction where he explores “societal fragmentation through the invention of figures made of vibrant colors and flat shapes, taking on dimensionality as they teeter in […]

Showing: Riusuke Fukahori – “Goldfish Blossoms” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Showing through the end of this week at Joshua Liner in New York is Riusuke Fukahori’s Goldfish Blossoms. For his third and largest solo yet with the gallery, the Yokohama-based artist has produced a wide selection of his signature acrylic and resin paintings of goldfish. Swimming in Japanese household objects and handmade vessels, the fish appear astonishingly three dimensional with the artist’s layered resin painting technique leading to an illusion of depth and realism. Coupling this skill in tricking the eye with Fukahori’s playful choice of items to house the freshwater […]

Showing: Erik Parker – “New Soul” @ Mary Boone Gallery

A couple nights ago, Erik Parker’s new show opened at Mary Boone Gallery’s 5th Avenue space in New York. New Soul is a fresh body of work dominated by the locally-based artist’s series of tondos, his first time working with circular canvases. Utilizing his signature saturated palette, Parker has created lush landscapes with pools of water framed with vegetations spilling from the edges, with the view offered like peering into a hidden cartoon paradise. Also seen in the selection of works are face paintings, augmented […]

Previews: Josh Sperling – “Big Time” @ Perrotin (New York)

Right on the heels of his showing just at the end of last year at Perrotin Seoul, Josh Sperling opened a new exhibition tonight at the gallery’s New York location. Big Time once again continues his exploration of geometric forms and can can be considered somewhat of a homecoming for the American artist as he lives and works in Ithaca. Created on shaped canvases, Sperlings expressive squiggles, angular shapes, and sinuous curves combine to form clusters of works that are oftentimes informed by the architecture in which it is […]

Showing: Emily Mae Smith @ Consortium Museum

A couple weeks ago in Dijon, France, the Consortium Museum opened the first ever institutional exhibition devoted to Emily Mae Smith. Bringing together about forty artworks made between 2014 and 2018 from private collections, the show gives a nice overview of the American artist’s recent output. Enjoy some more photos below but the video is a must watch as Smith talks in-depth about various aspects of her imagery like the importance of the female form in her work (sometimes addressed subtly), how her signature anthropomorphic broom figure started, […]
