"Immune" is Thinkspace Gallery's first solo exhibition of works by Italian artist Marco Mazzoni. A graduate of the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, Mazzoni has established himself internationally with his unique mastery of dry media. Using a medium often derided for its lack of sophistication, Mazzoni creates superbly detailed works with only colored pencils; drawings made with Faber Castells that could rival the painted chiaroscuro techniques of the old masters.

Marco Mazzoni has always been an artist that has garnered a ton of interest between our staff and readers, maybe because the Italian artist has such an interesting command over his Moleskine drawings. The artist just opened a body of new colored pencil works, "White Days," at B15 Gallery in Copenhagen, open through March 26, 2014. We love the addition of some of the animals in the artist's work over the past few shows, an interesting dimension to already stellar work flow.

Italian artist Marco Mazzoni and British painter Lindsey Carr both have an exhibition at Roq La Rue Gallery in Los Angles open now through November 30th, 2013. Marco Mazzoni creates beautifully disturbing drawings, dreamlike snapshots of faces flooded in an incandescent light as if in an overexposed photograph, and encircled by sumptuous flora and fauna. Lindsey Carr’s exquisite watercolor and gouache paintings evoke the specter of Audubon if he had spent time in a Chinese opium den.

The end of year brings us to our closing issue of 2012, and who better than London-based Conor Harrington to grace the cover for a second time (scoring at home, October 2008 was his first cover). We lean heavily on painters and fine artists this issue with pieces on Nicola Verlato, Futura, Julie Heffernan, Marco Mazzoni, Grady Gordon, and Gregory Euclide, plus conversations with Jen Stark, Bob Dob, and a photo essay from the heart of Johannesburg.
