Street Art // Thursday, September 19, 2013
Last weekend, Brooklyn-based surrealist artist, Judith Supine, opened a solo exhibition entitled “Thanks for Nothing” at Known Gallery in Los Angeles.

Working in various mediums surrounding collage, this exhibition plays on a number of themes including death, BDSM and fetishisms. On display are over eighty original miniatures along with six large-scale paintings. Here are some photos of what was shown and be sure to check it out through September 28, 2013.

New mural by Smithe in In Zaragoza, Spain

Street Art // Thursday, September 19, 2013
We feel Smithe is a little underrated, however If he keeps painting large murals like this that won’t last too much longer. The Mexican artist recently finished the following hybrid, semi-mechanical creature for the Festival Asalto in Zaragoza, Spain. We love the color palette he chose on this one and can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

Three nude women by Borondo in Blanca, Spain

Street Art // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
We first heard of Borondo when the artist painted old family portraits directly on to haystacks. It was one of the stranger choices in canvases we have seen. Now, the Spanish painter has created the following mural painted in a traditional painterly style of three nude women. Apparently, all three women are wearing the same handkerchiefs as a cultural representation bringing together Catholics, Muslims and the nonreligious.Blanca has a long culturally divided history, opposed to the present, where all cultures co-exist peacefully with one another now. Beautifully executed for the size.

New Mural by Phlegm in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn

Street Art // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Painted near the ocean at the southern tip of Brooklyn, Sheffield-based muralist, Phelgm, created the following mural. The piece shows a number of the artists signature characters isolated from each other by square brick boxes, all mesmerized by the glowing screens of their phones. This images depicted on this wall is something that can be witnessed often in various public setting in New York. Highly relatable to the current technological culture. 

THE SHEEP STATION by FRANCOIS XAVIER LALANE

Street Art // Monday, September 16, 2013
Last weekend while navigating the overwhelming amount of fall show openings in the Chelsea District of New York, we, like everyone else around, were taken off guard by the strange scene of sheep grazing in what was once an operating gas station. The Getty Station is a new on site-specific installation program that will exist in the already heavily art-saturated area of Chelsea. For the inaugural exhibition, Michael Shvo and Paul Kasmin Gallery present “Sheep Staion” featuring the work of late artist François-Xavier Lalanne.
