Juxtapoz // Friday, August 01, 2014
Ahead of her upcoming show at Merry Karnowski Gallery in Los Angeles this Saturday, we stopped by Deedee Cheriel's studio for a little visit! Deedee Cheriel transforms personal experience into folklore through an amalgam of influences both personal and universal. East Indian Art, spirituality, environmentalism, ritual, and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest all inform the artist's work and give context to often-personal narratives...

Preview: DEEDEE CHERIEL @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 18, 2013
This weekend, on June 22, Deedee Cheriel will be opening new works alongside Mel Kadel and Femke Hiemstra at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We were lucky this morning to get a preview and collection of new works from Cheriel, who in her artist statement notes, "With nuances of East Indian art, Cheriel's use of bold elements – both urban and natural, as well as pop culture – are indications of how we try to connect ourselves to others and how these heroic efforts are episodes of compassion and discomfort."

In L.A.: Greg 'Craola' Simkins @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 10, 2013
This past weekend we stopped by Merry Karnowsky Gallery for the opening of Greg ‘Craola’ Sminkins latest exhibition, “Stop Haunting Me, 20 Years.” As the gallery notes, "In this latest exhibition, Simkins’ dream creations have awoken, fully conscious and yet confined to two-dimensional canvas and paper surfaces. The bulk of their animal shapes are closely entwined in phantasmagorical scenes laced with rich narrative and haunting personification." Photos and more after the jump…

Preview: Greg "Craola" Simkins "Stop Haunting Me" @ Merry Karnowsky, LA

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 01, 2013
We just got a message from our good friend, and former cover artist, Greg "Craola" Simkins about his new show, Stop Haunting Me, that opens this Saturday, April 6 at Merry Karnowsky in LA. The show will feature a series of new paintings and never-before-seen prints. As Craola told us, " As I painted my pieces for this exhibit, two themes kept reoccurring to me. My twentieth year anniversary of writing graffiti under the name 'Craola"', which I began in 1993, was approaching. It is unbelievable that it is 2013 already. I blinked and 20 years flew by."
