Lola’s newest solo, “Ipsum Factum”, opened recently at the Corey Helford Gallery in the heart of the Culver City art district. Bringing to fruition pieces that we saw her working on during our studio visit a while back, Lola’s attention to detail was most impressive. From the delicate hands and feet of the denizens of her world, to the tiny planes, to the miniature animals and insects, to the ever present origami – attendees could see that she put her all into this new body […]
Urban interventionist sPy opened his debut solo show last week in his home country of Spain. Entitled “Urbana”, the show features a collection of photographs chronicling the pranksters recent works in Europe and New York City. Dubbed the “Spanish Banksy” by the media, sPy’s work focuses on alterations of the urban landscape, a rarity in that he refrains from using the traditional means and methods of graffiti/street art ie: stencils, wheatpastes or aerosol. Simultaneously whimsical and subversive, sPy’s situational art seems to be pushing the […]

Contemporary artist and legend Cy Twombly was recently commissioned by the Louvre to create a mural to for the ceiling of one of its oldest wings. This is an honor bestowed to only two other artists before Twombly and the first for an American artist. For one of world’s most prestigious museums, Twombly chose to contrast it’s rich history of complex classical art with an abstract contemporary flare by utilizing a canvas with a blue hue with floating geometric discs emblazoned with the names of […]
UK street artist D*Face (featured) recently stopped by Los Angeles to install some well-timed “Zombie Oscar Statues” last week. The two seven foot sculptures were installed in two locations – atop Runyon Canyon and in the parking lot of the famous Mel’s Drive-In in Hollywood near where the 82nd annual Academy Awards (Oscars) were being held at the Kodak Theatre. Our friend, Jeremy Kaplan (GM of Subliminal Projects) was along for the ride as D*Face worked his version Hollywood magic. The two installations were explained in detail […]

The guests in attendance were treated to a very private sneak preview of the show. In attendance were members of […]
Shaquille O’Neal’s curatorial debut opened at Flag Art Foundation this past Friday to a mass of curious art fans. A line filled the lobby just for the elevator up to the duplex gallery space on the 9th and 10th floor. The massive gallery space was justly utilized to house both the ginormous and microscopic pieces that represented the show’s theme “Size Matters”. “The Big Curator” did a nice job not only picking some of the top names in the industry, but also selecting some very relevant […]
