Last Saturday, AM attended Copro Gallery for the anniversary of one of our favorite magazines – Hi-Fructose. Known for bringing some of the best pop surrealist art coverage for the past 5 years, Hi-Fructose curated a diverse and top notch mix of some of the best talent in the industry. Many of LA’s booming art scene made it out to celebrate the anniversary show and catch the works of favorites such as Mark Ryden, Lori Earley, Audrey Kawasaki, Jeff Soto, Kevin Cyr, Thomas Doyle, Scott Musgrove, […]

So, it turns out the poll that Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) ran to choose her next print was a tie between “Yuuwaku” & “Hyakki Yakou,” so she decided to make both available (you have to choose one) to her fans. Both will be on sale on January 23rd, Saturday, between 3pm to 4pm Pacific Time for a hour window. Since the release is “time-limited,” anyone who buys during that time period is guaranteed a print meaning the edition size will be announced after the sales are […]
If you haven’t seen Audrey Kawasaki’s (interviewed) stunning new body of work yet, do yourself a favor and stop by Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York or check out our coverage here. On a related note, Audrey is polling her fans to see which print they want to see released next – “Yuuwaku,” “Migawari,” “Meisai,” “Hyakki Yakou,” or “Mezmeru Mae Ni” – all from her current show. The release will be one of her rare “time limited” prints, meaning during a designated time period, the […]
When hype is built up, rarely does the show ever meet the expectations. Once in a blue moon does one actually surpass the expectations – which is exactly what this show did. Audrey Kawasaki opened up her much anticipated body of work “Hajimari – a prelude” (previewed) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery last weekend in New York City. The sold-out show drew a max capacity crowd that overflowed from the packed gallery space into the adjacent hallways. There were three lines going the whole night – one to get […]
Sometimes the more you see the more you want. After spending the weekend with Audrey Kawasaki at Baby Tattooville (here), we were eagerly awaiting the opening of “Hajimari – a prelude” at Jonathan Levine Gallery this Saturday. Well, Audrey just released some stunning in-process pictures of her latest batch of hypnotic beauties. It’s just a taste of what we expect will be a great show. Word of caution as this show not only looks fantastic, but also very addicting… Check out the preview images after […]
While Greg “Craola” Simkins worked on his painting just a few feet away, AM favorite Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) was busy working on yet another piece for her upcoming show “Hajimari – a prelude” for Jonathan LeVine (teased) later this year. Watching Audrey layer colors and skin tones delicately over an initial sketch on wood was a real treat as well as a great insight to her process. More pictures after the jump.
As if the free giveaways, raffles and live paintings weren’t enough, Baby Tattooville actively encourages their artists to sketch away in the dozens of sketchbooks brought by the paying attendees. This year, AM got a chance to sit down with virtually every participating artist, as well as a few special guests. Check out the artists at work and some of the sketches we and other attendees received after the jump.
