Baby Tattooville ’11: “Baby Tattooville On Parade” Opening @ Riverside Art Museum

One of the biggest benefits for artists participating in the annual Baby Tattooville celebration is having their work exhibited in the Riverside Art Museum for all to see even after the exclusive weekend festivities end (you have about five weeks – until Nov. 8 – to catch show).  Entering its fifth year of hosting exhibitions featuring BT artists, this collection is a retrospective of sorts that includes works from those that have had their work in the annual show in the past. The star-studded line-up […]

Studio Visit: Tim Biskup – “Former State” @ THIS Gallery

Last time we ran into artist extraordinaire Tim Biskup, it was during the Heroes & Villains book signing (c0vered). However, this time around, AM was fortunate enough to visit his studio and get an in-depth look into his creative space and the hard work that’s been taking place in preparation for his next show. Entitled Former State, the new collection of paintings & sculptures will be presented October 14th at THIS Gallery in Los Angeles. The paintings will utilize the polygonal style he has mastered […]

Teaser: Tim Biskup – “Former State” @ THIS Gallery

Coming up on October 14th, Tim Biskup will be back in Los Angeles for a solo show at THIS Gallery featuring new paintings and sculptures. Focusing on other projects, we haven’t seen many exhibitions from the Biskup as of late with the last show in LA being at De La Barracuda in 2009 (not counting his installation at The Standard Hollywood). For those interested, he has also launched a new website. Discuss Tim Biskup here.

Videos: Tim Biskup Installation @ The Standard (Hollywood)

Tim Biskup recently painted over the constantly changing art installation, The Box, in the lobby of The Standard, Hollywood. The glass encased chamber behind the front desk has hosted the work of many artists over the years and usually includes an attractive female inside as part of the installation which certainly fits in a city obsessed with voyeurism and exhibitionism. Take a look at the footage above as Tim turns the box into a giant monster mouth as he explains his views on the attractiveness of […]

Preview: “In the Trees: Twin Peaks 20th Anniversary Art Exhibition”

Opening tonight at Clifton’s Brookdale in LA will be a tribute show for David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. The curation for this celebration of the early 90’s cult show is top notch as it includes many artists that we follow here on AM like Eric White, Stella Im Hultberg, Glenn Barr, and Tim Biskup, just to name a few. Devotees of the show will certainly be taking a nostalgic stroll down memory lane as they revisit the spooky town through the eyes of these artists. More […]

Preview: “Wreck the Walls” @ Subliminal Projects

Graciously staying open and providing an art viewing opportunity for the LA area during the holiday season, Subliminal Projects will unveil Wreck the Walls this Saturday, December 11. The group exhibition of over 30 “rebelious pioneers” will include work from Blek Le Rat, David Ellis, Erik Foss, Eric White, Evan Hecox, Greg Lamarche, Jason Alper, Martha Cooper, Retna, Skullphone, SWOON and Tim Biskup. An assortment of well established contemporary artists combined with a dash of street art and pop-surrealism should provide for a diverse collection […]

Showing: “Relationships” @ Gallery Christoffer Egelund

One of our astute readers in Copenhagen, Henrik Haven, recently took some pictures for us of the “Relationships” group show currently showing at Gallery Christoffer Egelund. The exhibition features three artists that we like – Tim Biskup, Miss Van, and Victor Castillo – as well as a fourth artists we weren’t familiar with – Michael Swaney. The exhibition nicely hung against the clean backdrop and spacious venue looking like something that should not be missed if you are in the area.  More pics after the […]

The underground comic purveyor and alternative arts distributor has pulled out all the stops, calling on their extensive roster of freaks, fine artists and everyone in between. With an all star lineup featuring such luminaries as R. Crumb, the […]
