El Gato Chimney's preternatural history, told by anthropomorphic creatures and hybrid beings, wants to encourage a typically Foucaultian curiosity.

If there was ever a reason to go to Milan, which there are many reasons to go, but if you needed a reason to go this week, we suggest going to check out our friend Eric White's newest exhibition, "Down In Front," at Antonio Colombo. The show is White's second at the gallery, and the opening is slated for September 25, 2014.

Galleria Patricia Armocida is proud to present Secret Garden, the first solo exhibition in Italy by Todd James that opened on Tuesday May 13, 2014 and will run through August 1st. For this occasion, the artist created seven large-scale acrylic on canvas paintings and eight medium and small-scale gouache on paper paintings. For his first Italian solo exhibition, James toes the thin line between erotic and ironic, capturing his Junoesque and voluptuous women during their private, secret moments taking place behind closed doors.

Olimpia Zagnoli is fond of listening to T. Rex, riding a tiny red bike, sending postcards and reading the news upside-down. After years of doodling she became an illustrator and began collaborating with The New York Times, The New Yorker, Google, Taschen and many others. Her style is characterized by soft shapes and chameleonic colors. She lives in Milan in a house with kaleidoscopic floors.

The Clayton Brothers just opened their first solo show in Italy this past November, opening a new body body of work, "I'm OK," at the Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan. The former Juxtapoz cover artists (ie... actual brothers) brought 30 new works in paintings, drawings, sculpture, with the the brothers noting, "We see these images as a reflection of ourselves but also of our neighbors, our friends, and families. In short, they are a reflection of the world around us."

Like the sight of a Ferris wheel in the ocean after Hurricane Sandy, a surfaced submarine in the streets of Milan is just as much a bizarre spectacle. Although, one was caused by a natural disaster, while the other was contrived by an insurance company as part of a marketing campaign labeled “Protect You Life.’ We have to give it up to the Europ Assistance IT insurance group, clever, very clever.

If Salvador Dali lived today and really wanted to get into the medical profession but wanted to keep his artistic chops, we get a gut feeling that his work could possibly go in the direction of Milan, Italy's Valerio Carrubba. We have always wanted to coin a term such as "Anatomical Surrealism," but now we sort of want to call Carrubba's work "Anatomical Surrealist Landscape" painting.

This morning we bring you some more finger paintings and a process video from Milan-based artist Troilo. Troilo tries to express the uncomfortable condition of being trapped in a void where the rules of society don't apply. There are no dresses, colors, or objects, and we are liberated from useless accessories. His style developed one day, when attempting to translate his drawings into paintings. He found himself using his fingers when he couldn't find any brushes.
