Last weekend, one of the best booths in all of The Armory Show was Ambach & Rice's show with Eric Yahnker, titled, brilliantly, Party Sub/Sub Party. Yahnker, our May 2011 cover artist, filled the booth with his incredibly rendered pop-culture commentary, and also was able to obtain signed baseballs from Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, and Justin Bieber.

Our May 2011 cover artist, Los Angeles-based Eric Yahnker, has been having quite a few great years now, and whenever he is about to showcase new works of parody and incredibly detailed skill, we take notice. Yahnker is set to open Party Sub/Sub Party from March 8-11, 2012 with Ambach & Rice at the Armory Show.

We look back on our May 2011 cover story with Los Angeles-based artist, Eric Yahnker. To us, as we have just completed the first half of 2011, this has remained one of our favorite features of the year. Read about Mel Brooks, pizza on garland, and the deep end of the shallow end. That makes sense.

If we could have told you last month when we announced Facemaker that Eric Yanhker was our May cover artist, it might have been more exciting. But tonight at Royal/T in Culver City, Ben Jones, Shepard Fairey, Takashi Murakami, Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, Eric Yahnker, Jane Moseley, Olaf Breuning, and others will explore interpretations of the most universal element of human perception: the face.

Our May 2011 issue is about to hit newsstands, and we are pleased to announce that Los Angeles-based fine artist, Eric Yahnker, is the cover of both our newsstand and subscriber covers. After a successful solo exhibition, Cracks of Dawn, earlier this year with Ambach & Rice at Kunsthalle in LA, we sat down with the artist and talked about lifting weights and process. Covers after the jump . . .

You there, reading this blog on a computer at work, wasting your employers time and money, and on their own equipment no less, we want you to meet Eric Yahnker. Look at his graphite drawings. They are over 6' tall, and you can't appreciate it in pixels, especially in Internet Explorer (that those dudes in IT are making you use)...

For a long time, we have looked at Brion Nuda Rosch from a distance with admiration for some of his more simple, conceptual pieces. After seening Rosch's solo showing at Baer Ridgway in San Francisco in 2009, Rosch's work came alive, and nuances that are not so immediate on screen became so in person. More after the jump . . .
