Take a look at the time-lapse footage of the mural which was a closeup of one of his signature “Deny Me Three Times” images. Via Vandalog. Discuss Gaia here.

NYC street artist Gaia, along with Angry Woebots, Deseo, Dia, Scribe and Mr. Jago will be featured in “Re-up”, a new group show opening tonight at Gallery 1988SF.Â Gaia was kind enough to send us some process pictures of the woodblock and screenprints that he’ll be exhibiting. “Rhetorics of Peace” (featured above) is one of four animal prints that consist of Gaia’s contribution. He told AM recently that “the Animals are all derived from either biblical references or simply existential considerations. But those sources serve […]
Bringing life to a row of twelve empty storefronts in New York, theÂ â€œWilloughby Windowsâ€ (previewed) community beautification project presented byÂ Ad Hoc Art in conjunction with the MetroTech Business Improvement District, was a success by all accounts. The storefronts, located at 89 to 106 Willoughby Street in Brooklyn, included participation fromÂ artists Chris Stain,Â Ellis G. (interviewed),Â Gaia, Logan Hicks (interviewed),Â Dennis McNett,Â Michael De Feo,Â Josh MacPhee andÂ more. Given the number of rising empty storefronts due to the state of the economy, hopefully we’ll see more such projects take place in […]
Last Friday,Â Ad Hoc Art had a great two-person solo show withÂ Gaia and Imminent Disaster (previewed). The hippest of the Williamsburg crowd made their way out to see a great showing by these two street artists we recently saw in D.C. at theÂ â€œStreet/Studioâ€ experience. For the show, Gaia brought the streets to the gallery with a “outdoor” installation to complement each of his works while Imminent Disaster flexed her muscles by showing off her intricate hand-cut stencils and thought-provoking imagery. All the photos from the opening […]

Fresh off the “Street/Studio” experience at Irvine Contemporary, Gaia is bringing a taste of the streets to Ad Hoc ArtÂ with the introduction of his outdoor installations inside the gallery for the opening of his two-person solo show with Imminent Disaster, opening tomorrow, June 26th at 7pm. For this latest body of work, Gaia continues his exploration of the complex relationship between between man and nature through a series of works on canvas featuring detailed depictions of his half-human, half-animal creatures. A sneak peek at some […]
Washington, D.C. got hit with a taste of urban art this past weekend thanks to the Irvine Contemporary, who held a group show and street/studio experience that featured artists: Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Dalek, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Oliver Vernon, EVOL and Pisa 73. AMÂ got to tag along as these urban artists got together to create a show that was not only inside the gallery, but also along the back walls and alleys of some prime D.C. real estate. From the moment daybreak started on Thursday,Â EVOL, Pisa […]
The annual Black Rat Press Print Show (previewed with interview) last week was a success again with scores of fans and collectors turning out to meet artists and learn a little more about the print-making process. Take a look at the show as well as a little video after the jump.
If last year’s event is anything to go by, the Black Rat Press Annual Print Show in London, opening on Saturday, 21st February will be worth checking out. The chance to see printmaking demonstrations, ask the printers questions, as well as check out new editions, trial proofs, hand colored rarities, and other treats from the Black Rat Press’ stable of artists could well make this one rather special. Artists involved include Matt Small (above), D*Face, Sweettoof, Brian Adam Douglas, Gaia, Lucas Price, Nick Walker, Blek […]
The “Brooklyn Block Party” opened last Friday at Ad Hoc Art with a healthy lineup featuring C. Damage Elbowtoe, David Ellis, Gaia, Mike Houston, Imminent Disaster, Martin Mazorra, Dennis McNett, Richard Mock, Judith Supine, and Swoon.Â The exhibition was an interesting change of pace for each artist as the show dictated they include hand cut blocks along with prints pulled from each block.Â The theme of the show was executed nicely by all artists involved and really helped pull their diverse styles together into a […]
