Our friend Birdman recently posted a great video documenting Dabs Myla‘s recent mini-solo show over at Known Gallery – home of the Seventh Letter. Shot by Birdman on a GoPro HD Hero2. Music by Ian Rees.
This should get you pumped up for their return to Thinkspace coming up this September. The duo will be showcasing over 20 new works alongside a very special installation and a curated show featuring 32 of their friends from around the globe. Some very cool surprises are in store – details to follow soon. Get ready!
“From the incandescent sculptural work of Elliot Jackson to the hyper-realistic renderings of Jeff Ramirez and everything in between, the show offered artwork for everyone’s aesthetic taste. Highlights of the evening were Matt Doust’s large scale oil portrait, Shark Toof’s progression towards graphic concepts, as well as the detailed pencil crayon drawings of Winnie Truong (Vol 22 cover artist). However, the shining star of the night was UK based artist Emma Tooth. Known for depicting extraordinary people in traditional settings, Tooth presented three oil paintings from her ‘Concilium Plebis’ series portraying urbanites in a chiaroscuro setting reminiscent of the old masters.”- HiFructose
In the new issue of JUXTAPOZ we received a full-page feature in the ‘Pop Life’ section for our recent sold-out ‘In the Wake of Dreams’ exhibit that featured works from Audrey Kawasaki, Amy Sol, Mari Inukai, and Stella Im Hultberg. Thanks Jux!
Our curated exhibit at the University of Arizona, ‘Impetus‘, is on view through Wed, November 9th. Your final chance to view this awesome collection of works is right around the corner, so don’t sleep. Check out a great review of the show below that ran recently in the Tucson Weekly.
“On view through November 9, ‘Impetus’ is a show imported from Los Angeles, and curated by the highly regarded Thinkspace Gallery. Without exception, I can picture each of these artists waging tiny epic battles with their chosen medium, fretting over the importance of each stroke or line. This show was entirely and refreshingly devoid of any statements from the artists whatsoever, which meant that each painting succeeded or failed solely on the strength of the work itself, and not some clever artist statement written in a coffee shop over a $5 latte. Bloviating with a laptop and a latte is really best left to bloggers, anyway. I’m not sure whether Tucson should be offended that the strongest show of work this year was imported from a Los Angeles gallery, or happy that Thinkspace Gallery found Tucson to be worth the time and effort to mount an exhibition of their outstanding artists. I suppose I’ll opt for happily offended.”- The Tucson Weekly
