Openings: “Tiny Trifecta” @ Cotton Candy Machine

This past weekend, New York’s Cotton Candy Machine hosted their second annual “tiny” art showcase entitled Tiny Trifecta. As we mentioned in our preview, artists this year upped the ante as each created three pieces of original artwork for fans who may not have the opportunity to purchase their larger scale works. All you needed was a $100 and the patience to queue up for a chance at your favorite artwork. Tara McPherson curated strong and diverse lineup which included names such as James Jean, Audrey […]

Openings: “Love & Hate” @ StolenSpace

Last month, the StolenSpace Gallery in London hosted a show that opened around Valentine’s Day appropriate to the theme entitled Love & Hate. For the group exhibition, most artists created two works, one for each of the strong emotions that often seems linked hand in hand depending on the situation. Because of the concept behind the showing, the pieces that were presented had an interesting dichotomy that made the exhibition well worth seeing. More photos after the jump by Henrik Haven…

Openings: F*CK Art @ Museum of Sex

From paintings to sculptures to interactive installations, the show had the audience constantly buzzing as artists took their works a little further towards the edge. We caught Rostarr’s nation of millions canvas and […]

French street femme fatale Miss Van just opened a show in Vienna featuring her sexy “poupées” and their animal friends. Featuring small to medium pieces, the new work filled the INOPERAbLE Gallery with her Muses which were admired by an adoring crowd.

Streets: Freedom Park (Berlin)

Artists, what would you give to paint on a piece of history? That’s exactly what happened recently in Germany as artists like Nunca, Miss Van, and McBess were asked to paint on remnants of the Berlin Wall like Chor Boogie did last year for the Stroke.03 Art Fair. This time, the pieces were organized together into a Freedom Park event organized by Dudes Factory and Lux Pop Art Group. More photos after the jump…
