Jeff Soto dropped a teaser image of his studio that shows some work for his upcoming solo show “Turning in Circles” at the Riverside Art Museum. We are sure his first museum show will be epic. Slated to open on December 13th, expect a large room filled with mostly new paintings and installations. discuss this show here. discuss jeff soto here.
What do you get when you put an empty, rundown building together with the UK’s hottest urban/street gallery? Just add a little graffiti and you’ll get one of the freshest shows of 2008! As promised, Arrested Motion was on hand for the exclusive preview opening of the Lazarides Outsiders show. In attendance was a veritable who’s who of the UK Urban art genre. Antony Micallef, Conor Harrington, David Choe, JR and even Steve Lazarides himself was on hand to mingle with the packed 2 floor […]
How appropriate it is that Mars-1‘s work would grace the cover of Faesthetic #9 seeing as this issue features UFO themed art. Mario’s otherworldly paintings have always conjured up visions of undiscovered planets and new vibrant lifeforms. This beautiful image is no different and luckily for us, the zine is only $10 and available here. More after the jump.
So after tearing up the UK urban art scene for the past few years… the infamous Lazarides is going to hold a surprise show in the “big apple” next week. Laz is a UK gallery known for representing some of the most notable artists in the Urban/Street scene such as Banksy, Micallef and Faile. It will be interesting to see what they bring to represent in their first New York show. More to come as Arrested Motion will be on hand at the invite-only preview […]
Josh Keyes posted a stunning new image up today from his upcoming show “Mist” at OKOK gallery next month. We really love the multiple levels of interactions in this piece. From the water-fire hydrant association to the predator-prey relationships of the eagle-rabbit & bear-fish, there certainly is much to think about. This is easily one of the our most anticipated shows to close out 2009 so we have been hard at work gathering as much information as we can. Josh is expected to deliver about […]
The Merry Karnowsky Gallery in LA will be hosting a fundraising event the evening of Oct. 1 to benefit Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. The event will include an art show featuring works by The Clayton Brothers, Camille Rose Garcia, Seonna Hong and others. Especially for the benefit, pop surrealist superstar Mark Ryden is producing an exclusive limited edition print, with all proceeds going to the Obama Victory Fund. And for all you who aren’t in LA, you can get the print now, even if you […]
Masakatsu Sashie‘s show “Under Fluorescent Light” opened last Saturday at GR2 on the west side. As usual, his detailed spheres encompassing urban elements (buildings, vending machines, air conditioners, television sets) were quite eye-catching. It’s as if his so-called “orb paintings” shrunk the ingredients of city living into a compact package for consumption. Another interesting item for sale was this model kit of one of his “orb paintings” that was for sale. Limited 50 pieces and nicely priced at $100, these must have sold out. Hopefully […]
photo via New YorkerDid you miss the Takashi Murakami Retrospective exhibition this year at the MOCA LA and the Brooklyn Museum? You’ll soon get another chance to see the creator of the “SuperFlat” art movement this weekend in Frankfurt, Germany. The Museums fÃ¼r Moderne Kunst will be opening its doors this Friday (Sept 26th, 2008) for a special “preview night” for members and patrons of the Museum. The exhibition is open to the general public officially on Saturday (Sept 27th, 2008). While we all wait […]
Because we are young collectors, we haven’t had much opportunities to watch an artist’s career blossom from the very beginnings. Emerging artist Tin is one of those happy exceptions and we have been following his rapidly ascending career with much interest. Here’s his latest painting that he posted on his blog today. Love the robotic animal themes that he works in with his female figures in increasingly complex environments. Looks great with his classic sepia/black & white palette but he’s turning this one into an […]
The second annual Baby Tattooville is fast approaching (October 3-5). This unique event, billed as a “limited edition retreat for artists & collectors,” has grown on us and Arrested Motion will be on hand to cover the event. The idea was for 50 paying attendees to spend the weekend participating in scheduled activities (panels, workshops, etc) and to socialize with the eventâ€™s artists. This year’s featured artists are Ana Bagayan, Glenn Barr, Dave Cooper, Bob Dob, Joe Ledbetter, Brandi Milne, Daniel Peacock, Shag, Amy Sol […]
