Our friends at Boing Boing just posted an exclusive preview of January 2012 cover artist, Audrey Kawasaki's Midnight Reverie exhibition opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on September 8, 2012. Audrey said of the work, "Some of the pieces have windows, like passage-ways into another world, yet it can also feel like limbo or static—wanting to walk through to the other side, but not being able to. Others are deep in the make believe, magical, mystical realm." More after the jump. . .

We have profiled Bill Dunlap's work in the magazine before, but we have just come across his black painting and faces series and wanted to share with our readers. Dunlap has shown in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and Boston this summer in various group shows, but is also known to paint a very well-constructed barn mural. He also "Can't read, can't write." And was "Raised by wolves and skunks."

Any daily New York cyclist will tell you there are a serious lack of bike racks in all the boroughs. Everyone’s lugging these massive chains around so they can lock their bikes to something not intended for locking, trees work well. Any new bike racks mean a win for cyclists, whether Talking Heads lead singer, David Byrne, designed them or not, in this case he did.

Lush sent over a few exclusive samples of work for his upcoming show “Shitty Drawings in New York City” at Klughaus Gallery in New York. Opening this Saturday, August 25 the show will feature the artist's “witty illustrations” that “take the piss out” of his graffiti roots. A limited edition zine will be available at the opening as will something offensive, believe that.
Music // Thursday, August 02, 2012
Nothing gets you feeling serene more than a girl barefoot skipping through Manhattan with sunshine golden hair while Sigur Ros' beautiful music is playing and Ryan McGinley providing the visuals. We think that pretty much covers it. From the looks of it, this is part of Sigur Ros Mystery Film Experiment, and it may be the most epic 8 minutes you spend today.

Chris Johanson remains one of our favorite enigmas in all of contemporary art, and we like to keep it that way. He will be opening a new exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery in New York City on September 14, 2012, and because that seems enough of an occasion to send one of our favorite artists a list of questions, we did just that.

This past March, we checked out the solo show of one Nat Russell at Mollusk Surf Shop in San Francisco, sans camera. That was not smart. Now on the eve of Russell's showing at Ed. Varie in NYC, we wanted to showcase some of the works of the Indianapolis-based artist. 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.
