Opening today in the Thinkspace project room is #WhereWeBeelong featuring new works by LA based artist Bumblebeelovesyou. Known for his iconic street art pieces of playful children set in urban contexts, Bumblebee draws from a nostalgic love of childhood memory and its simplicity. Invested in the communicative power of imagery, he brings a poignant vision of innocence to life by drawing our attention to its displacement.

We are hyped to see our friends (and past featured artists) Low Bros get a solo show at Thinkspace in Culver City that opens this weekend, June 20, 2015. The Low Bros have been such staples in both the mural/street art scene as well as creating these awesomely nostaglic artworks that almost make them seem like they are SoCal kids. No, this is a German-based duo, and it looks like they knocked it out of the park again.

On May 23rd, 2015 Thinkspace in Los Angeles will pleased to present Beautiful Noise, the gallery’s fourth solo exhibition for Japanese artist Yosuke Ueno. A self-taught painter, Ueno has been creating fantastic worlds and characters as long as he can remember. Highly stylized and beautifully imaginative, his works are surreal and emotional; an alternate reality expressed through a quasi-mythological orbit of his own making.

Thinkspace is pleased to present Gumbo, a group exhibition featuring works by Alex Yanes, James Bullough, Matthew Grabelsky, Ryan Hewett, Sergio Garcia, Troy Coulterman and Troy Lovegates. A truly divergent group of Thinkspace artists, the show reflects the steadily expanding diversity of the gallery’s roster. Firmly forward-looking, while ambitiously setting the pace for the New Contemporary movement, these artists have phenomenal contributions to make and are consistently raising the standard. Gumbo is an exciting grouping of the gallery’s contrasting visions, personalities and media.

We are falling into these new works by Australian illustrator and artist Bec Winnel. The emotive and sophisticated quality of her illustrations are the result of layers of mixed medium including pastel, pencil, watercolor, metallic and paper cuts. Her subjects and imagery are haunting and feminine.

Concurrently on view this Saturday in the Thinkspace project room are new works by Erik Jones in Color/Full. Originally from St Petersburg Florida, Jones currently lives and works in New York city. His technically complex mixed-media works combine the figurative with the geometric in seamless collusion and concert. Jones’ hyperrealistic figuration is offset by geometric patterns and momentums that seem to live and breathe as symbiotic organisms.

This Saturday, March 28th, Thinkspace Gallery will present The Air is Thick featuring new works by Los Angeles based artist Seth Armstrong. Armstrong’s paintings self-consciously capture a sense of looking, arresting moments with cinematic detail and voyeuristic curiosity. Varying in scale, the paintings offer views that are alternately intimate and vast, moving expertly between the monumental and the minute. Laden with detail and suggestion, each piece offers a moment in the trajectory of a larger narrative, and the viewer is compelled to realign the fractures of these inconclusive moments.

Each artist wields a certain kind of mojo that make human hearts skip a beat. The more one looks at their works, the more one will start to see the emotional complexity that makes their paintings far deeper than just being eye candy for the soul. Their works span the full array of human emotions, from longing to innocence, to surreal flights of fantasy that only begin to hint at the more solemn emotions that most of us try and hide.
