Temperatures plummeted and the cold evening turned abruptly white at Known Gallery in Los Angeles last Saturday the 16th. Who would imagine that the Temple of Wolfbat would hold court in such stark brightness? Dante Ross curated this latest parade of McNett’s trademark characters, choosing to highlight their ferocity on the high walls, giving each creature enough space to guard their territory...

Last weekend, Brooklyn-based surrealist artist, Judith Supine, opened a solo exhibition entitled “Thanks for Nothing” at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. Initially, the artist captured people’s attention with his unique standout work illegally placed in the streets of Brooklyn, but now Supine primarily focuses on creating work intended for indoor viewing. Working in various mediums surrounding collage, this exhibition plays on a number of themes including death, BDSM and fetishisms. On display are over eighty original miniatures along with six large-scale paintings. Here are some photos of what was shown and be sure to check it out through September 28, 2013.

THANK YOU X became known on the streets of Los Angeles a few years ago, largely in part to his large Warhol stencils and wheat pastes around the city. Signing THANK YOU X underneath was a gesture of anonymous gratitude for Warhol’s aesthetic of rebellious integrity, the name accidentally became the artist’s identity. He has since been traveling all over putting his stamp all across America and even London and France. I met his a year or so ago and was introduced to his by his Government name and thought he was a nice guy.

This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery for the opening reception of “Adaptation” and installation by Push. As a part of the Game Changer series, SIMPLE Mobile told Push they wanted to give him a chance to do something he always wanted to do with his art without restriction. Push’s first choice was a to do a three-dimensional installation piece that stretched his skills and the ideas of what people thought of when it came to muralists that cut their teeth on the streets of Los Angeles.
