We just recently mentioned John Baldessari's show over at Sprueth Magers in Berlin. In addition to this recent show, Baldessari put up a new mural in La Jolla, California. The conceptual artist is known for his collage work with found photographs and odd appropriations that investigate and question how we perceive the world around us in a variety of ways.

We knew Sao Paulo-based Herbert Baglione was off to Rome for the Outdoor Festival as soon as we departed Nuart in Norway, and now we are seeing the looks of the multi-paneled mural he painted in Italy. We always like when Herbert adds the chaotic scratches above his characters, as he has done here with this panel.

Freedom Suite opens tonight, September 30th at Environment Gallery in Los Angeles. This show will feature new work and a public mural by renowned graffiti artist turned Abstract Expressionist, West One. In the artist’s own words, “We live in a vast city where everything’s at right angles.” “My work is movement and energy. It’s organic. The viewer will see different things – maybe themselves, maybe the city. Maybe the broader environment. I hope to make us look at our space, our environment, a little differently.”

When in Europe, go big like the Eurpean muralists. El Mac was recently in Bristol, England, painting a multi-storied mural for the "See No Evil" festival. The piece is titled Clothed With the Sun, and was inspired by a Renaissance painting in 1504 by Raphael.

We just got a few images from Steve Powers (aka ESPO) and Dave Villorente and Powers' new Love Letter To Brooklyn project. If you remember how impressive Powers' last Love Letter project in Philadelphia was, a lot of people are looking forward to seeing how the Brooklyn portion comes together.
