We have long been fans of Dutch painter, Joram Roukes, in our offices, and have featured him both in the magazine and on our site. He currently has a new body of work up at Masters Projects in Brooklyn, which will have a reception on February 5 and on view through March 14, 2015. The gallery says of Roukes works that, "Roukes’ collage-like paintings of anthropomorphic-hipsteresque-hybrids set within dystopian landscapes visually invoke cultural tensions through realist and expressionistic painting styles."

Studies In Pessimism is a last minute trashy low down dirty show in an abandoned store put together by a bunch of nehr’do’wells. And it's one night only. These artists all have a similar aesthetic about the dark future expressed through their different mediums, a perspective centered around an honest unflinching outlook at our current modern day consumer driven lifestyle. I mean this shit is bleak and we can't wait!

We remember seeing Edward del Rosario's work at Richard Heller Gallery a few years back, and wanted to revisit this morning. His bio is great: Edward del Rosario was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He was pushed down a flight of stairs when he was two years old. He received his BFA in Painting from the University of Kansas and his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design.

We love these paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Robin F. Williams. She has a fantastic sense of color, light, texture and composition.

Smithe has always been one of our favorite artists, and with fellow Mexican artists Kraken and Seher, he will open a new body of work at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn from August 15—September 10, 2014. As CCM notes, "Smithe is one of the those artists whose work wows just about everyone who see's it. From four story buildings to intricate drawings he will blow your mind and you will get to watch it deconstruct." We have a preview of some of his work here....

We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of a group show at La Fabrica Gallery. This Event May Be Occurring In Another Context, is a collective art show created by ACME Brooklyn to create a community between Mexico and USA. ACME Brooklyn is an art project that aims to display the artistic production of a specific context. A group of artists from the emerging and established art scenes of Mexico and New York are invited to express views on the meaning of cultural displacement and the interpretation of identity in over-populated cities that geographically distance origins.
