Openings: “Pattern Recognition” @ Subliminal Projects

Last weekend, Subliminal Projects played host to “Pattern Recognition”, a group exhibition from a great set of artists including Seonna Hong, Nikki McClure, Dalek (interviewed), Richard Colman (interviewed), and Souther Salazar.

Preview: El Mac / Damon Soule @ Joshua Liner Gallery

In Gallery I, El Mac’s The Humble and Sublime (teased) will serve as the Phoenix-based artist’s first solo with the NYC gallery, highlighting his unique figurative works. Known for his fantastically rendered and massively scaled street murals (covered), this exhibit will provide an opportunity for the multi-talented artist to show how he throws down […]

Openings / Streets: FAME Festival 2010

For the last two years, there’s only one place even the most half-hearted of street art fan should be in September and that’s the picturesque town of Grottaglie, in the foot of Italy, and this year is no exception as the town again provides the canvas for curator Angelo Milano’s FAME Festival. As with previous years, Angelo has invited a stylistically and geographically diverse selection of renowned and, at least for now, less recognized artists to decorate the walls of his hometown as they see […]
