Throughout the past year we’ve been liaising with British artist Nick Walker as he worked on a vandal theme with a Paris focus. From accompanying him on Paris rooftops to get some inspiration, to following the different steps of the creative process, it’s been a very exciting journey and we’re glad to be able to share some behind the scene pics. The Morning After Paris print will be a very limited edition, available in person only at Opera Gallery Paris on June 23rd at 2PM – […]
The ever elusive Banksy has recently updated his website with some new “indoor” work with pieces that seem destined for some gallery show, museum, or private collection. Also new were some confirmations of outdoor stencils that has popped up recently including the “child labor” piece that appeared in London a couple weeks ago as well as some work that hadn’t appeared on the interwebs yet.

Last Friday evening at FFDG marked the opening of Dave Kinsey’s first solo show in San Francisco in over a decade (previewed). This longtime Los Angeles artist recently moved away from the city, to a much quieter town near the Sequoia National Forrest and has created a body of work that has become more abstract, but still incorporates his recognizable figurative characters. Lost For Words features a series of textured mixed media works on surfaces that range from canvas pieces with slightly crooked frames (which […]

In anticipation for this year’s Art Hong Kong, we bring you a special studio visit to Pace Print’s Manhattan studios. For the fair opening on the 17th, Pace will be unveiling a special edition woodcut print created in collaboration with Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. Unlike our recent trip to Pace’s Brooklyn studio with Shepard Fairey where experimental techniques were explored, this Manhattan location serves up a different set of traditional tools which were utilized by the blue chip Japanese artist. In applying a classic Ukiyo-e style technique for fine art […]
Last weekend, Kehinde Wiley opened his latest solo exhibition at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York entitled An Economy of Grace. This comes on the heels of the gifted painter’s ongoing showing at The Jewish Museum of New York, giving fans in the Big Apple two venues to enjoy his large-scale and urban-chic paintings. This new body of work features his first depiction of female subjects, perhaps triggered by his recent painting of Santigold for the cover of her new album. As per his […]
Over the weekend, Tauba Auerbach unveiled a newly created body of work entitled Float at New York’s Paula Cooper Gallery to a packed opening night audience. The showing was everything we expected from the Brooklyn based artist and more, representing the diversity in Tauba’s artistic talents as well as her endless energy to explore a range of mediums. From her recently developed weave paintings to a new Bent Onyx book from the series which started last summer in the Hamptons named A book is an X-axis, […]

He didn’t just stop with superbly produced HPM’s and prints. Leave it to Shepard to elevate his game as […]
