One of our favorite artists we discovered last year was Brooklyn-based painter Dean Monogenis, an artist who can create wonderful architectural settings that balance on the edge of futurism and surealism. Not only did the artist have a busy 2013 with a ton of new paintings, he is currently showing in a group show at Walter Maciel in Los Angeles...

Something we are really excited about, and perfect timing with our Todd "REAS" James cover story in our December 2013 issue on newsstands now. If you follow James on Instagram, you have been seeing his really bugged out, cartoonish, psychedelic "Swords & Sorcery" drawings he has been doing, and now he will be having a ONE DAY zine/installation launch at The Newsstand in Brooklyn, at the Lorimer L/Metropolitan G subway stop from 3pm - 9pm, Saturday November 23rd. Be there. Go there.

Using his well known collage skills, the artist has created some intricate and fantastic currency collages using the dollar bill.

Ruby Onyinyechi Amanze is a brooklyn-based artist of Nigerian birth and british upbringing. She has come to, not only accept this reality, but to ultimately find empowerment in the authenticity of the hybrid. Her drawings have been influenced greatly by textile processes, print-making, architecture and the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi that emphasizes the beauty in that which is transient.

Banksy continues his “New York Residency” creating two new works in the streets, this time both across the East River in Brooklyn. The first painted yesterday, was the image of a broken heart balloon painted in the Red Hook neighborhood. Due to cheap fame or other envious reasons, the heart was “sidebusted” quickly by a repeating Banksy “admirer” as we will call him. The second was marked on a door somewhere in Greenpoint...
