This Friday, the boys will be premiering a large body of fresh works at Jonathan Levine Gallery’s new pop-up space (557 w. 23rd Street).

Ryan Travis Christian has been busy preparing for his The Second Banana exhibition opening tonight over at Guerrero Gallery. His latest solo show incorporates painting, sculpture, video and some massive instillation. From what we have seen, this work dives, not only deeper into the the finer things in life we all enjoy such as the love of a childhood sports, but also goes as far as exploring the more tabu subjects found within general mainstream society just under the surface. Normally lighter illustration based pieces seem to […]

Melbourne-based Lush opens his first UK solo exhibition, You Become What You Hate…, tonight at a warehouse space in London’s Hackney Wick. The show includes installations, sculptures, paintings, sketches, prints, t-shirts and zines. If you enjoy Lush’s deliberately offensive, illustration-style work, it promises to be a fun spectacle: sexually explicit imagery of large-scale vaginas, fornicating unicorns, rainbow-coloured guts, urine and ejaculate, scenes of gratuitous violence, and various pieces based on the theme of ACAB / All Cops Are Bastards. Knowingly biting the hand that feeds […]
After a successful showing in Los Angeles, along with performances based on their imagery from the Lucent Dossier crew (covered), artistic duo Herakut moves up the coast for a followup showing at 941 Geary. Opening on April 21st, Loving the Exiled will be focusing in on characters that have fallen from grace – “the abandoned child that first cries of fear and then of rage, flocks of scapegoats, a choir of arch enemies, the outlawed, the out- numbered, the ones that know they are very […]
This year’s Pow Wow event aims to expand from its initial urban roots. Last year, the crew laid paint solely on buildings near the gallery property, but this time the surrounding industrial district of Kaka’ako was also the target of this artistic beautification campaign. After the kickoff ceremonies, it was time to get serious and the crew got straight to work. Artists such as Will Barras, Mr. Jago, Prime, Flying Fortress, 123Klan, Meggs, Angry Woebots, Aaron De La Cruz and many more took tours of the neighborhood to […]
The last time we touched on the work of the prolific Belgium-based ROA was when we came across some of his murals during Art Basel Week Miami (here & here). And, the last time we witnessed an indoor showing from the anatomically-inclined artist was in Australia (covered) back in October. Well, we’re happy to report that he has two concurrent exhibitions planned very soon in Stockholm, one on the 17th at a yet-to-be-announced secret location entitled Defragmentation and another entitled Fragments on the 18th at the […]
