Openings: Samuel Lowder – “Time Machine” @ Shooting Gallery

Last Saturday evening, Shooting Gallery hosted the opening of Samuel Lowder aka Freprs’s exhibition entitled Time Machine. This ex-90’s graffiti artist has fully transitioned into creating pop art pieces incorporating layered stencils, with hidden details to be picked out when viewed closely. Time Machine takes the viewer back around 70 years with a cinematic feel with a colorful twist. Discuss Samuel Lower (Freprs) here.

Mizuno provided her signature cute yet violent imagery dubbed “Gothic Kawaii” or “Kawaii Noir” in a series of paintings and drawings. More pics after the jump…

This Saturday, July 31, Merry Karnowsky Gallery will be hosting a new show, “Vivid Fiction,” a joint venture between artists Junko Mizuno, Aiko, and Samuel Lowder aka FrePrs.

Aiko Nakagawa, formerly part of the  Faile (featured), continues to develop her own imagery and style, showing a feminine touch that has been missing from the Brooklyn collective since she left. Junko Mizuno will be bringing her unique […]

Openings: FrePrs @ Galeria Con Safos

On October 3rd, up and coming stencil artist FrePrs held his first solo at Galeria Con Safos in Santa Ana. We took notice of his bright and bold color combos which went great with his fresh and clean stencil techniques. FrePrs made sure there were plenty of mediums available for attendees to enjoy from canvas to prints. Judging from this impressive debut solo, we will be looking forward to seeing what he has planned for the future. See the opening night pics after the jump.
