Openings: “Art Truancy – Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The year was 1994, Pulp Fiction was ruling the box office, The Beastie Boys were blasting Sabotage and a group of artists out in sunny California were brainstorming on how to start a Kustom Kulture magazine, that (unbeknownst to them) would eventually go on to be the most widely distributed and influential art magazine in the world. Famed painter Robert Williams (originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico) was riding a California wave, while collaborator, Fausto Vitello, was ripping with his Thrasher Magazine success, and with some key […]

Leading female street artists Miss Van and Olek recently opened their two-person show at StolenSpace Gallery in London (previewed  here).  Based on their strong friendship and artistic sisterhood, both show their mutual appreciation for each other work . Miss Van’s new body of work titled Glamorous Darkness features her signature ‘poupées’ (dolls) in a series of  dreamlike landscapes and colours. Adorned with masquerade, animal-like masks, her sensual and erotic female characters evolve and interact with each other. In a tribute, Olek has recreated several of Miss Van’s favourite paintings in crochet form with intricate […]

Previews: Miss Van & Ciro Schu – “Room For Cream” & “Makumbia” @ Soze Gallery & Time to Shine Gallery

Legendary Barcelona-based artist Miss Van and Brazilian artist Ciro Schu have spent most of the summer traveling all over the globe creating both indoor and public art together. Although their styles don’t seem similar at first glance, Miss Van’s dreamy female portraits go very well with Ciro Schu’s abstract imagery and cubist shapes, and there are many murals from Brazil to USA to the UK that prove this point. The blend of their styles will result in side-by-side solo shows opening in Los Angeles on the 21st of September. Miss Van’s […]
