Robert William’s “SLANG AESTHETICS!” Opens at LSU Museum of Art

Robert Williams: Slang Aesthetics! visits Louisiana with the opening of it’s latest showing this Thursday, March 8th, at the LSU Museum of Art. The exhibition will be on view throughout the spring and summer, closing June 17th.

Here is what the museum had to say about its upcoming exhibition:

Presented courtesy of the artist, Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman, Robert Williams: Slang Aesthetics showcases 25 new oil paintings and ephemera by the artist upheld as the godfather of the lowbrow and pop surrealist art movements. A true maverick who sought to create work that channeled the shifting energies and immediacy of counterculture, from the 1960s onward, Williams’ paintings invoked a return to craftsmanship, figuration and popular imagery that rejected the elitist tenets of conceptual minimalism.


Icy & Sot continue to produce thought-provoking work that reflects the troubles of our times in a new series of public works created as a response to the travel-ban in the US.  Juxtapoz highlights the work as a continued departure from their classic stencil based pieces, which was first seen at the opening of Human (Nature) in November 2017 at our gallery.

We are excited to announce that pieces from Human (Nature) will be shown at the Fullerton Museum Center, with an opening reception tomorrow, Friday, January 26th.

We look forward to introducing Icy & Sot’s Human (Nature) to a new audience in Orange County.

For the fifth iteration of Thinkspace’s special exhibition in tandem with POW! WOW! Hawai’i, we have curated a group of just over 50 local and international artists to act as a small survey of the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for art lovers on Oahu and the world over via social networks like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art, and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” – Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner

The Fullerton Museum Center in conjunction with Thinkspace are happy to present a small showcase featuring the works of the phenomenally influential Jeremy Fish.

Fish, originally from Albany New York, moved to San Francisco in the 90’s to set up camp at the age of 19 in North Cali’s skate mecca, eventually studying screen-printing and painting, and completing a degree at the Art Institute of San Francisco. He went on to work commercially as an illustrator, designer, and art director, contributing to apparel companies and magazines like DLX, Think, Thrasher, Juxtapoz, and Slap.

Inspired by children’s books and cartoons from the 70s and skateboard graphics from the 80s and 90s, Jeremy Fish’s world is both playful and dark, inhabited by animals, phenomenal graphic motifs, cool cars, and classic vans. He creates a whole cast of animal characters inspired by the cities and scenes he loves and the personal and human conflicts he observes. In 2015 Fish became San Francisco’s City Hall’s first-ever artist in residence, creating a body of work based on the iconic city he has called home since 1994. In celebration of its centennial, he created 100 pieces of mixed-media drawing based on San Francisco’s urban history and its civic hub, which were exhibited in a special project in the fall of 2015 entitled, O Glorious City. If that wasn’t enough, the city further showed their thanks for Fish by proclaiming November 19th to be “Jeremy Fish Day” from here on out. In this new body of work, The Los Angelurkers is a return to a more lighthearted Fish as he celebrates everything he loves about Los Angeles, in spite of his steadfast North Cali allegiances. In an attempt to cut out any unnecessary negativity from his life, following his recovery from a serious brain aneurysm in 2014, Fish has spent most of the past year hunting down this imaginative world of mythical creatures from the recesses of his ingeniously offbeat mind, revealing a cool and playful world of fantasy and nostalgia.

Dulk Interviewed in Street Art United States

Street Art United States interviewed Thinkspace Family artist Dulk to discuss social media, the origins of the name Dulk, the evolution of street artists to muralist and so much more. Jump on over to Street Art United States website to read the full interview.

We’re excited to be showing work by Dulk in two of our museum curated exhibitions now on view,  Juxtapozed showing at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and Flourish at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum.  This won’t be the last of Dulk in 2017 as we will be showing him this fall in the UK as well. We also have a few prints from Dulk still available to purchase on the Thinkspace Gallery website.

Painting in the street allowed me to take my future more seriously as an “artist”, it was a turning point in my life. Ever since I laid hands on my first spray can, my road changed direction.  –  Dulk from Street Art United States Interview
