New mag STRETCHING CANVAS now on stands…

There’s a new magazine making it’s debut currently by the name of STRETCHING CANVAS: Outsider Art At Its Finest.

It’s put out by the fine folks over at International Tattoo Art magazine and is going to be published quarterly for now. Next issue will hit stands in April.

The debut issue features the sculptural works of Chris Sickels on the cover and great features on Joey Remmers, Shaunna Peterson, Daniel Martin Diaz, Jamie Burton, gallery spotlights on M Modern, DvA Gallery, Copro Nason, 1988 and more. A pretty solid 1st issue and worth picking up.

With only a handful of magazines covering the art we all love, we need to support new upstarts like this, so keep an eye out. It seems to be all over the place, I grabbed mine at 7-11.

Speaking of, if you haven’t picked up the new issue of HI-FRUCTOSE yet, it’s on stands now, so don’t sleep!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

They took a special liking to a new artist we were debuting in our back room by the name of Tiffany Owenby. Tiffany is a paper mache sculpture artist living in NC. I came across her work in NYC last year when I went to the gift shop for the Folk Art Museum there next to MOMA. This year I visited again, to find more new works, and decided to add a piece to our collection and got in touch with her upon my return to LA.

We’ll be posting some great new works from Tiffany in our ‘available works’ section later this week. Until then, check out more on here at her site: www.tiffanyowenby.com

Our hearts go out to Skot Olsen and the Harold Golen Gallery…

Just saw this on the Kid Robot forum and wanted to send out our thoughts… this is just horrible and such a loss – Skot’s new body of work was just stunning.

From the board:
Hundreds of amazing and beautiful lowbrow paintings and artwork were destroyed yesterday morning when a fire broke out in Miami Wynwood Art District’s “Harold Golen Gallery” – the current exhibition was especially important due to the international art fair Art Basel, which wrapped up this past Sunday. Among the paintings that were lost are the work of Ron English, Tim Biskup, Niagara, Mars One and most notably Skot Olsen. The now destroyed show was called “Subjective Reality” and featured at its center ALL of the new neo-psychedelic artwork of Skot Olsen, which has taken years to complete. Destroyed in the fire were a dozen paintings by this lowbrow/pop surrealist artist who unveiling his new direction and more realistic painting style at Art Basel show this weekend.

All that remains of his work are a few prints available on the artists website: Saint Psilocybe & Saint Elyse’s Epiphany. http://www.skotolsen.com/purchase/prints.php

Obviously, Skot Olsen is shocked and heartbroken and could use any support that the art community can muster. A year of work down the toilet!
