We are taken by the graphite on paper illustrations by 26-year old Sydney, Australia artist, George Nova. With popular subjects like Biggie, Tupac, Kate Moss, Michael Jackson and Rick Rubin, Nova creates photo-realistic quality drawings with the simplest of tools. Great works.

Famed Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is currently showing at Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia, where he took a completely white room and gave a thousand colorful stickers to kids to apply throughout the installation space. The results, as you can imagine, is ordered chaos.

Yesterday, we showed you a collection of oil paintings by Australian painter Michael Peck, and last night, Metro Gallery (who hosted Peck's last solo show, The Landing, this past Nov-Dec 2011) sent us images of Peck's opening as well as a fantastic documentary, Within the Layers, that documents Peck's latest body of work.

You can get lost in a great realist painting, and Michael Peck's new series of oil on line works, exhibited recently at Metro Gallery in Armadale, Australia, are some of the best we have seen this year. Taking the subject of World War II and adding a contemporary feel and children to the scenes, Peck's work is based on isolation and displacement.

'An infinite motif of naked darlings, patterns and the primitive fauna of the sky complemented by a riot of satanic beasts, creeps and mutant night walkers vomiting up nostalgia.' The photo collage/illustrations of Tulsi Maya, an Australian based wonder.

We went by LUSH's exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery last night to shoot a few preview photos, and the Melbourne artist told us that he felt more comfortable picking a few out from his stash. So, we got nudity, because LUSH built a peep show, complete with stripper pole in the gallery for LUSH Sells His Soul in SF.

The show will feature a fully-installed peep show, in collaboration with San Francisco's iconic nude revue, the Lusty Lady. Some photos NSFW . . .

The gladdening and clean aesthetic of Street Artist Creepy belies a deeper well of existential considerations that are always a part of his narrative-driven character-based folk art. His large-scale public murals of illustrative aerosol toss and bounce skinny limbed people telling dark stories of ennui and disconnection, non-plussed in their muted earthen tones.
