Showing: Roby Dwi Antono – “Epos” @ Thinkspace

Showing through this weekend at Thinkpace in Los Angeles, Roby Dwi Antono’s Epos mesmerizes viewers with the deep gazes of his surreal characters. Drawing you in with their starry eyes, the Indonesian artist’s subjects in this particular show are placed in compositions that draw inspiration from things any child (or adult for that matter) would be fascinated with – Ultraman & dinosaurs. Along with oil paintings, the exhibition also includes drawings, studies and works on cardboard, as well as a large striking sculptural edition (seen above). Photo credit: […]

Openings: “KAWS: WHAT PARTY” @ Brooklyn Museum

Tonight in New York, the Brooklyn Museum opened KAWS: WHAT PARTY to the public, featuring more than 100 works including drawings, paintings, sculptures, smaller collectibles, furniture, and larger-than-life COMPANION figures. The comprehensive exhibition is surprisingly the Brooklyn-based artist’s first major museum survey in New York, touching on the highlights of his 25 year career from his early rarely seen graffiti drawings and notebooks, to examples his now famous xx-eyed characters painted on fashion ads in phone booths and bus shelters, to the continuation of this figurative work into the fine […]

Showing: Masakatsu Sashie – “The Patch” @ KP Projects

Currently at  KP Projects in Los Angeles, Masakatsu Sashie has another show on view featuring his striking levitating orbs of urban amalgamations. Oftentimes suspended over post-apocalyptic landscapes, the floating spheres from the Japanese are like self-contained worlds that are at the same time stylistically retro and futuristic – “hovering gracefully between the worlds of a nostalgic past and a potentially dystopian future.” Along with a selection of oil paintings, Sashie was also included some intricate drawings or what look to be studies to the exhibition.

Showing: James Jarvis – “Transcendental Idealism” @ Nanzuka

Showing through this weekend, Transcendental Idealism is James Jarvis’ (interviewed) latest show with NANZUKA in Tokyo. Held partly at 3110NZ by LDH Kitchen in Aobadai Nakameguro, the exhibition will also include a concurrent presentation of the artist’s works at the gallery’s Shibuya space. Taking its title from the Immanuel Kant theory which “argues that the conscious subject cognizes the objects of experience not as they are in themselves, but only the way they appear to us under the conditions of our sensibility,” the new body of work from the British artist […]

Previews: Shawn Huckins – “Skeptic” @ Stefanie Chefas Projects

Tomorrow night (October 17th) in Portland, Stefanie Chefas Projects will be opening Skeptic, a new show from  Shawn Huckins (featured). The Denver-based painter continues his practice of overlaying classic imagery ranging from still lifes to 18th century American portraiture with discordant and symbolic elements including text messages, disembodied hands, and Roman sculpture. The new body of work from Huckins delves into America’s relationship with the past and how that affects our current place in the world as well as what makes a society thrive – and what makes it […]

Showing: Vhils – “Momentum” @ Danysz Gallery (Paris)

Earlier this week, Danysz Gallery’s space in Paris presented a selection of new works from Vhils (interviewed). Entitled Momentum, the exhibition begins a new cycle of reflection that focuses on the idea of fossilization – “of capturing various symbolic material elements from our present-day culture in order to preserve them for the future as a fossil-like memory of the current times.” Further refining his unique techniques of mark-making, the Lisbon-based artist has created a compelling new set of works that demonstrate the breadth of his practice. Vhils further […]

Showing: Jonathan Chapline – “Virtual Window” @ Hawkins Ferry House

Jonathan Chapline recently unveiled a unique exhibition entitled Virtual Window, which was staged at the Hawkins Ferry House, built to display the namesake’s collection of modern art on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Working off a selection of historical images, blueprints and present day images of the architectural space as well as Ferry’s collection (most of which was posthumously donated to the Detroit Institute of Art), the Brooklyn-based artist created four large paintings, a diptych portraying elongated arched windows, and a sculpture inspired by Giacometti’s Standing […]

Streets: Conor Harrington // London Mural Festival

Right on the heels of a recently finished mural from D*Face, Conor Harrington (interviewed) has completed his contribution to the first ever London Mural Festival. Touching on themes of nationalism, the Irish-born artist goes big with his familiar flag and colonial imagery in Greenwich (71 Trafalgar Rd, SE10 9TS) with this new wall. Just a 10 minute bike ride from his home, Harrington really did a phenomenal job with palette and details of this piece… Photos via Global Street Art & @streetartatlas. Discuss Conor Harrington here.
