We launched Richard Colman's "Orbs" yesterday in Austin as part of Juxtapoz Projects during 2014 SXSW with Converse. We have been huge fans of Richard's art, a unique style that blends recognizable characters amidst abstract geometric patterns on both canvases and installations so we were very excited to collaborate with him on bringing his character to a new medium: weather balloons! Unfortunately yesterday a thief in the night snuck over and cut the Orbs loose! So keep an eye on the sky for a falling Richard Colman Orb!

We got to spend a ton of time with SF-based Richard Colman at Art Basel in Miami, as Richard helped design the poolside vibes at the Shore Club South Beach. Aka, he transformed the pool chairs into a Colman vision. Now, the artist is set to open "Noise" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, his third solo exhibition at the gallery. The show comes down Saturday, March 15, so go check it!

Perhaps you followed our Instagram feed during the week of Art Basel 2013, but you may have saw our collaborative surfboard project with Encinitas, California-based shop UNIV and San Francisco-based Chandran Gallery. In Miami, we kickstarted the project that will soon be fully announced as a full auction and exhibition benefit for Waves For Water, an organization on the ground in the Philippines, mobilizing an urgent clean water disaster relief initiative in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan.

A few weekends back, we stopped by New Image Art to check out Richard Colman’s latest solo exhibition “Gone Tomorrow.” As always, Colman's work was a beautiful collection that addresses some of the darker subject matter of life, but done so with a brightness and abstraction that always grows and is perfected with each body of work. Photos and more after the jump..

The Chicago-based artist painted a surreal scene, including his signature hooded skull characters and a giant bear in the center.
