Making a surprise announcement of his participation in World Travel Market London, Banksy recently posted up a piece he will be putting on display at the event next week. The replica separation barrier from the elusive British artist will be on display at the Palestine stand, a promotion for his Walled Off hotel in the troubled region. Stop by for a look yourself if you are in the area because in addition to this stellar example of his work for you to lust after, he will also be “giving […]

Previews: Mark Drew // Spoke Art @ ComplexCon ’18

Starting tomorrow, ComplexCon in Long Beach will have much in store for art fans amongst the music, fashion, and sneakers on display. One of the artists to be featured in Spoke Art’s booth will be Mark Drew, who will be presenting some of the Peanuts comics and 90s rap lyric mashups that he has become known for. Combining pop culture and hip hop, the Tokyo-based artist’s work certainly seems tailor-made of the event. Take a look at more preview images below… Discuss Mark Drew here.

Previews: Super A – “Domestication” @ The Brand Library and Arts Center

Tomorrow (November 3rd), as part of a series of solos and group shows put on by Thinkspace at Glendale’s Brand Library & Arts Center, Stefan Thelen aka Super A will be presenting a selection of new paintings from his Trapped series. Entitled Domestication, the new body of work sees the Dutch artist continue to deconstruct cartoon, fairytale, or pop cultural archetypes by cleverly peeling away the surface while revealing the realistic version of the character inside. Discuss Super A here.

Showing: Geoff McFetridge – “Coming Back Is Half The Trip” @ Eighteen Gallery

Last weekend in Copenhagen, Eighteen Gallery hosted the the opening of another great show – Geoff McFetridge’s Coming Back Is Half The Trip. The Los Angeles-based illustrator, designer and artist’s instantly recognizable distillation of the human form into basic shapes and colors once again takes center stage for this exhibition, work that takes inspiration from daily routines and patterns. This time around, McFetridege has nicely paired his paintings with some sculptural works (his take on the animal form), arranged head-to-tail in the center of the space as would be indicated […]

Previews: Jean Jullien – “GIB” @ Arsham/Fieg Gallery

GIB which is “BIG” spelled backwards, will be on display through November 18. Via Hypebeast.

Recap / Videos: POW! WOW! Rotterdam

Last month, another POW! WOW! wrapped up in Rotterdam, their first event in Europe. POW! WOW! Rotterdam featured live music and a special exhibition in the HAKA building, but of course our focus is on the street art that was created at Keilewerf 1 and 2, an area that used to be an industrial part of the city. Along with artists from the Netherlands like Super A (seen above) and Telmo Miel (seen below), the international roster did their best to brighten up the grim concrete walls. […]

Previews: Brian Viveros – “The Good, The Bad & The DIRTY” @ Spoke Art (NYC)

On November 3rd, Brian Viveros (featured) will be opening a solo show at Spoke Art’s New York location. Entitled The Good, The Bad & The DIRTY, the new body of work continues the Southern California-based artist’s rendering of his signature warrior women. Featuring cosplay influenced by Lucha Libre, Dia de los Muertos, and rife with boxing and military references, the new work is Viveros’ most meaningful and personal to date. Viveros furthers explains – “It’s been some time since I’ve had a show in New York, but I’m very excited […]

Showing: Martin Wittfooth – “Domestic Katabasis” @ Corey Helford Gallery

Last weekend in Los Angeles, Corey Helford Gallery opened their third showing with Martin Wittfooth (interviewed) entitled Domestic Katabasis. Featuring 19 oil paintings on canvas, linen, and wood panels, some of his largest to date, the new exhibition from the New York-based artist posits that perhaps the relentless progress of the human race is actually a decline or deterioration when viewed from a different prospective. Wittfooth further explains – “Katabasis is an ancient Greek term that refers to a descent of some type in mythology, usually into the underworld, out of which […]
