Nicola Verlato "Conquest of the West" @ Merry Karnowsky, LA

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 06, 2015
Our good friend Nicola Verlato, Italian-born but now based in Los Angeles, is opening a show of what he told us is "smaller paintings" at Merry Karnowsky Gallery on Saturday, February 7. What he says in a modest way we say they're epic. "Conquest of the West" features Verlato's signature style; classical drama, modern fairytales, ancient strives. And it looks like he has a sculpture in this new show...

Music // Friday, February 06, 2015
We wanted to start the day off on the darkness mood possible, and elegant dark if you will. So, if you don't mind, watch this nearly erotic, definitely raw, video by Pedro Maia for Vessel's track, "Drowned in Water and Light."

Photography // Friday, February 06, 2015

Through the use of 1/24th-scale model recreations, Smith photographs scenes of everyday life in his created town taking place from the 1920’s to the mid 1960’s.

How and Nosm "A Different Language" @ Jacob Lewis Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 06, 2015
Raoul and Davide Perre, aka How and Nosm, have, over the course of their careers, had their passports stamped excessively, producing a plethora of meticulously detailed murals (including the famed Bowery Wall), and illegally painting countless passenger trains and walls. Being identical twin brothers may be one of the keys to their prolific output and achievements, but good ol’ fashioned hard work is really the defining trait of their success.
