After years of traveling the world assisting Terry Richardson and Jonathan Mannion, Brooklyn-based photographer Nick Sethi has begun to make the same impact on the emerging photography scene. His first solo exhibition, NOME, is a culmination of two recent trips to India. Between living under a bridge for 3 months with homeless kids, to attending a festival with naked holy men doing yoga painted with ash, Nick exposes an unseen and intimate India that is overlooked by the locals, and rarely seen by any photojournalist...

Brooklyn-based artist Michael Shall does not draw from photographs but uses images to "gain an understanding of how certain things are structured." He then uses these s structural understandings to create his imagined worlds where those forms can do whatever he wants them to. "...these forms can do whatever I want them to, and it all looks believable, or almost believable."

The SFMOMA is temporarily closing its doors in a couple of days for the construction of their new expansion. We took a last walk through yesterday evening as they count down the days and while doing so happened upon a painting by Fred Tomaselli, something we seemed to have missed the last time we were there. So, inspired, this morning we thought we would bring you a collection of the Brooklyn-based artist's work.

Brooklyn-based artist Jose Suris IV created these awesome masks and sculptures out of paper! Despite looking like real fur, the animals were constructed out of paper, Styrofoam, wirefoam, and paperclay. Suris hangs his sculpted creatures and masks on displays just like a taxidermist. His inspiration? Pretty much everything: Internet videos, cartoons, Zelda, Pokémon’s Evee, stories...

Information artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg has been taking DNA left behind on spit out gum, hairs, and other pieces of our genetic trail that we leave behind every day and generating and printing faces using a 3D printer. The resulting portraits of anonymous people may not be a 100% accurate since there are many things that are impossible to determine from DNA (age, etc.), the artists says they probably have a "family resemblance." The series is titled Stranger Visions.

Via our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America, Brooklyn based Matt Leines recently opened a solo exhibition, Hyperbolic, at Beginnings in Brooklyn. After living in Philadelphia for a few years, the artist moved to New York and settled into a rhythm that was both fresh and cheerful, or as the gallery notes: "Those who follow (Leines') work may have noticed a shift in the last few years, somebody flipped a switch in the artist’s brain–or maybe spun a dial–and all sorts of things began to happen: visible spectrum increasing, palette spinning out, subjects becoming more universal and less referential.
