The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga is presenting the first solo exhibition in a Spanish museum of KAWS, entitled FINAL DAYS. Curated by Fernando Francés, it includes five large-scale, carved wooden sculptures of his celebrated COMPANION, among other figures. In their numerous different versions, they represent the work for which KAWS, who is also a forerunner of the Art & Toys movement, is internationally known.

Spain and Polka take a spraycation to Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Berlin, and Stockholm. Gotta love the in your face bombing style of this video. It's always great to see some no care daytime bombing as people walk by like it's no big deal. Certainly can't get away with that type of behavior in America!

KAWS had a pretty amazing year in 2013, and the Brooklyn artist is right back at it in 2014 with "Play Your Part," an exhibition at Madrid's Galeria Javier Lopez. We have long been fans of the program at Javier Lopez, with Todd James, Kaws, Jenny Holzer, and Leo Villareal on the roster, and love how KAWS' work looks in the sparse space. If you are in Spain through April 23, go check it out.

Morrissey fans are among some of the most dedicated of any musician, with countless fan websites committed to the artists work. So to see a graffiti writer paint his name is by no means a stretch or surprising. Painted by Spain and Retroe.

Today we take a look at his Atlas series, a series of paintings on old maps where here skillfully transforms countries and continents into faces, animals, and skulls using acrylic paint.

One of our favorite contemporary painters, Antwerp-based Kati Heck, just opened her first expansive museum show in Spain at the CAC Malaga, featuring 41 works: small- and large-format paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography and video. So, if you have family in Spain, live in Spain, live close to Spain, maybe make this show a holiday season must...

With little information about this piece, Escif simply says, “Isolated nature on nature Island.” This island he speaks of is Mallorca, a tropical paradise located in the Mediterranean Sea off Spain. The building that Escif painted the collection of lush plants on appears to be a hotel (speculation). Hopefully, Escif is compensated with unlimited complimentary accommodations for his beautiful addition to this establishment.
