After our interview with him earlier this year, Labrona has continued putting up street works like the piece seen above. For this year’s Moniker Art Fair though, the Canadian artist will be exhibiting some of his paintings at the Campbarbossa booth featuring his familiar imagery arranged in his typical stain glass like geometrical motifs.

We’re in London excited for the upcoming Moniker Art Fair on October 14th-17th (coinciding with Frieze Art Fair). It looks to be a rad event with many of the galleries that you’ve come to love on AM exhibiting like New Image Art, Carmichael Gallery, Black Rat Projects, CampBarbossa, Galleria Patricia Armocida and Anonymous Gallery. We caught the setup as the crews are busy setting up site specific installations. Steve “ESPO” Powers & Faith47 were on hand to create gorgeous murals on the outside of the […]
Shark Toof debuted his first ever solo show with Culver City’s LeBasse Projects at Beyond Eden this past weekend. The prolific street artist mounted a visual assault utilizing his array of signature imagery, including sharks, cigarette boxes, comics and monsters. Using materials such as wood, spray cans, boxes, found materials and books, the artist filled nearly the entire space with art work. One wall featuring giant panels of screen-printed swimming sharks over a collaged and painted background would have been even larger if not for […]
We at AM have been following Bumblebee’s work for a long time now and are now happy to provide coverage of his first ever solo exhibition. The buzzing and buzzed-about artist treated the Beyond Eden crowd to imagery of bees, children, environmental awareness and the joys of childhood, in an installation and collection of works that included sculpture and paintings. The colorful show was one of the top highlights of the entire fair and we are happy to hear that it completely sold out. See […]
If you remember the last time we brought you a look at a Bumblebee installation, you know you are in for a treat this weekend at the Beyond Eden Art Fair (previewed). The Los Angeles-based street artist, best known for his sculptural works involving his namesake will also be showing a new body of work at the Carmichael Gallery booth. Take a look at more installation setup pics after the jump…
Beyond Eden is this weekend and from what we’ve seen, it looks to be one amazing event. LeBasse Projects is one of the galleries participating in the 2-day fair and one of the artists they will be showing is Los Angeles’ own Shark Toof. The hustling hometown hero, whose prolific work can be seen all around the streets of the city, presents a large scale installation as well as a selection of pieces. Come by this weekend and see his amazing work when the fair […]
This weekend, the second annual Beyond Eden Art Fair will open at the LA Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park with offerings from Thinkspace, Copro Gallery, La Laz De Jesus Gallery, LeBasse Projects, C.A.V.E. Gallery, and Carmichael Gallery alongside a special exhibition showcasing Cannibal Flower’s 10 Year Anniversary. With some of our favorite new contemporary galleries included, AM is excited to see what this year’s edition has to bring. Along with gallery booths, there will be many associated art events and activities. For example, the opening […]
Currently showing over in Denmark at this year’s Art Copenhagen is Dave White’s “Forgotten Alchemy”. The series is a little different from the signature sneaker paintings he is famous for, but you can definitely see his style come through with these gun renderings. The new body of work will also include sculptures and drawings. More images after the jump…
Our friend Amanda recently posted up an image of Andrew Hem’s (interviewed) sketchbooks, scattered gloriously about with pages open revealing this and that. In essence, these gouache “sketches” are mini-paintings and a selection will be available from LeBasse Projects at next month’s Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair. As a whole, the work is a summary of Andrew’s many travels as he stops occasionally to paint a scene that impressed him for one reason or another. Via Erratic Phenomena. Discuss Andrew Hem here.
Part of the fun of going to the big art fairs like Art Basel is also going to all the satellite fairs, and one of our favorites is always Scope. Like in Miami and NYC, Scope Basel gave us a chance to see emerging and mid-career artists that are generally not represented at the main fair. Check out our images from Scope Basel, after the jump.
