We always enjoy the simple, clever, witty, and whatever complimentary adjective we can bestow on British illustrator Ian Stevenson, who loves to distort our collective pop-culture with a twist of wicked satire. His newest solo show, Made In Broken Britain, is currently on view at The Outsiders space in Newcastle, England.

We are deeply disappointed that we are unable to see Roid’s debut solo exhibition “More than Ever” with Topsafe London in person. The artist’s work is a mix and is influenced by typography, design, geometry, Manga, computers, robots, music and the list goes on, with one eye catching color palette for sure. His work has been courting our attention for a while and from these pictures one could easy think the canvases were created digitally.

The show will feature a mix of illustration, hand-stitching, embroidery, and installation based works.

This past Saturday, we stopped by the first day of Mexico-based artist, Rico Deniro's Escoliosis, his second exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery and his second featuring a series wooden masks. But this new series also features iconic pop-culture figures carved from wood to function as everyday, household objects.

Our partners and colleagues in Mexico City just let us know about a fantastic new exhibition by Emilio Rangel, who just opened a brand new exhibit in Mexico City, Genealogía at Terreno Baldío Gallery. This is Ragnel's first works since his acclaimed The Whore of Babylon exhibition. The works appear to be sculptural fusings of part human and animal qualities, with futuristic, tribal characteristics applied in their uniforms.

Barry McGee will make a return visit to show at Prism Gallery in Los Angeles tonight, May 11, 2012, with a large portion of work created at the gallery itself. In 2009, McGee held an exhibition for the gallery's inaugural exhibition, titled MindTheGap. Since then, the gallery has gone on to show many renowned international artists including David LaChapelle, Os Gemeos, Ryan McGinness, Andy Warhol, Araki, and a bunch more. This one should garner a ton of attention.
