AM stopped by the Carmichael Gallery to check out the progress of Israeli street artist Know Hope’s first Los Angeles solo debut “the times won’t save you (this rain smells of memory)” (teased) opening tomorrow, Thursday, June 4th. His intricate gallery installation, comprised of paper raindrops, fishing twine and a lot of cardboard was really coming together. We were equally impressed with Know Hope’s new work for the show. His large mixed-media pieces just keep getting better and we were delightfully surprised to see that […]

See all of the in-progress photos after the jump.
AM is excited about Berlin-based stencil artist BOXI’s debut United States solo show “Grey Area” opening this Thursday, April 9th at Carmichael Gallery. Best described as a “figurative Logan Hicks,” the photo-realistic effect of his work is the result of a meticulous and labor intensive process involving six separate layers of hand-cut stencils and an equal variation of grayscale coats of paint. This unique technique combined with his formal training at London’s St. Martins School of Art and Design lends to pieces that are rich, […]

Matzu and his helpers have been working around the clock to transform the space with paintings, murals and sculptures into one cohesive installation. And although the show was still a work in progress when we were there, from what we saw, it already looks to be a stunner. Check out our exclusive preview pics after […]
