Juxtapoz // Sunday, August 26, 2012
Any daily New York cyclist will tell you there are a serious lack of bike racks in all the boroughs.

With wit and abstract graphic elements, his new show will feature large scale paintings, watercolor, and silk-screen works on paper, a multi-dimensional installation, and fine art lithography prints.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 28, 2012
When we think of Warsaw, Poland, we don't always think of an endless summer, but Polish painter Kasia Domanska has created a powerfully bright series of oil on canvas works documenting a day at the beach that is currently on display at 532 Thomas Jaeckel in NYC through July 3, 2012. Each painting captures a fleeting moment of youth and light, works that capture a sense of innocent voyeurism.
