Juxtapoz // Friday, June 01, 2012
We were looking forward to this exhibition at Lazarides Gallery in London: Brazilian artist Nina Pandolfo's Spice Angels. Bright, bold, playful, Pandolfo has been on our radar for quite some time, a great mix of Japanese style with a Brazilian twist, a full set of characters that seem recognizable at first glance.

That said, we are always excited to see what Kofie's newest architectural-based works will look like, and Todd Mazer stopped by Kofie's studio prior to the artist's solo show, Working an Angle, at Known Gallery in LA.
