Last month, the Petaluma Art Center north of San Francisco opened up an exhibition entitled Cosmic Terrain, the brainchild of Mars-1, Damon Soule, and Oliver Vernon. As part of the Furtherrr collective, the three friends are no stranger to collaborative works, which along with individual pieces, is what this show is about. The cosmic musings of Mars-1, organic patterns of Soule, and the chaotic abstractions from Vernon fuse and meld so well together, it is sometimes hard to differentiate where one artist’s vision starts and […]

A couple months ago, White Walls in San Francisco played host to Flotsam’s Harvest by the Bolinas-based Mike Shine (featured). The exhibition consisted of an immersive installation featuring paintings, films, and performance art filled with symbolism and clues as to solve the dark “World Riddle” posed by Friedrich Nietzsche in his book, Thus Spake Zarathustra. If you recall, the German philosopher and poet also provided inspiration for Shine’s show in Los Angeles back in 2011 (covered). Check out the rest of the photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo.

A couple weeks ago, White Walls in San Francisco opened a new show from the Brooklyn-based twin brother duo, Skewville (featured). Amusement features about 30 different pieces painted on a mix of wood canvases and found materials as well as sculptural works – all created in their trademark “urban playground” style. Some standouts include wooden boomboxes and a merry-go-round built from retro Apollo bikes. Take a look at all the photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo Discuss Skewville here.
Bronx bomber and graff artist COPE2 continued his indoor showcases with a show at Gallery 69 in New York. Entitled Hypnotic, this exhibition is another step in the evolution of his signature bubble throw ups and wildstyle compositions. Cope2 worked layers upon layers of abstraction on this fresh series of canvases showing a nice change of pace from the works we’ve been used to seeing from his street works. Check it all out below.

After behind the scenes look at both the studio space and tower installation by Faile leading up to their monumental collaboration with the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center, the anticipation for the opening night performance brought out some of the who’s who of the New York street & urban art scene. Our peers at Wooster Collective & Brooklyn Street Art joined notables such as Tomokazu Matsuyama, How & Nosm, Logan Hicks and Carlo McCormick in the celebration of art & dance brought […]
Last week, How & Nosm brought their outdoor graffiti talents from the streets into Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s brand new pop-up space in the heart of Chelsea. Entitled Late Confessions, this series of works are reflective of their unique multi-cultural heritage. Being born in Germany and growing up in Spain, the identical twin brothers reveal different parts of their past in the art that was produced for this exhibition. In addition to experiencing their signature color palette of red, grey and blacks, the twins pushed the boundaries with […]
It’s has been a long road leading up to this day for the FAILE camp, with Friday’s opening of Les Ballets De Faile. As we mentioned previously this week, the New York City Ballet came out swinging when they chose the the two to lead their first ever artist collaboration. Over the last 6 months, the Patricks and their band of loyal soldiers have created literally thousands of individually stacked ‘wooden block’ piece of artwork, inspired by both their own iconic imagery as well as the archives of the New York City […]
We recently had the pleasure of visiting the New Jersey studio space of artist Dylan Egon where he was preparing for his upcoming exhibition Art as Lifestyle. Held at the unique venue of reGeneration, this show opening December 1st will feature a hybrid of both fine art and furniture design. Dylan has crafted series of his signature “assemblages” that we’ve come to enjoy since we first saw them in Home of the Brave at Jonathan LeVine last year as well as some furniture stemming from the fusion […]
Carmichael Gallery recently presented a popup exhibition for Eriberto and Estevan Oriol in the Big Apple. Entitled Like Father, Like Son : NYC, this exhibition is actually the second installment (first one was in LA) of a traveling retrospective from the renowned Chicano father and son photographic duo. The series of photographs on display show off their gritty and raw viewpoint of lifestyles from the streets of Los Angeles. It was quite an experience to see both of these distinguished photographers showing their works side by side on the East Coast. […]
Joseph Nahmad, known for his pop-up events, recently presented a group show in New York’s Meatpacking district with Nemo Librizzi (who curated Futura’s recent showing at Valmorbida). Entitled Deep Space, this exhibition featured four noted street & graffiti legends Futura, Phase 2, Matta and Rammellzee. Using an interesting approach, this show was not just a collection of freshly made works but was instead a mini survey of old and new works from each of the four artists. The exhibition examined the historical journey of each artist and […]
