Opening night of ‘This Is Forever’ and ‘Split Ends’ at Thinkspace

'This Is Forever' opening night (l-r) Andrew (thinkspace), Dan-ah Kim, Timothy Karpinski, Shawn and LC (thinkspace)

Thank you to all that came out to support Timothy Karpinski and Dan-ah Kim this past Saturday. Patrons found themselves sucked into the worlds of Timothy and Dan-ah as their works are just brimming with hidden treasures like hand-sewn elements, hand-cut goodness and so much more. In addition to the works on view, ‘This Is Forever’ also showcases a wonderous installation from Karpinski which in part showcases his 1st short film, ‘This Is Forever’. Sadly Eveline Tarunadjaja, on view in our project room, was not able to come in from Australia for the festivities, but her works made it and are SO incredibly detailed, please be sure to take a look if you make it through during the  next couple weeks.

Both shows demand to be viewed in person due to the vast amount of detail hidden within each work, not to mention Karpinski’s fun-filled installation. From the smooth, brushless look of Timothy Karpinski‘s work to Dan-ah Kim’s delicate hand-stitched creations on through to the hyper detailed ink and watercolour works of Eveline Tarunadjaja, both exhibits offer so much to those that come out to view them this month in person.

DABS MYLA at work in downtown LA (in collaboration with HOW and NOSM)

Day 3 of DABS MYLA at work on their collaborative mural with HOW and NOSM

DABS MYLA are at work in downtown LA putting the final touches on their massive mural with HOW and NOSM (on 3rd Street near the big JR piece). The work is part of the ongoing LA Freewalls Project being put together by Jet Set Graffiti and promises to be one of the highlights of this astounding collection of outdoor works. The lineup is becoming a who’s who to say the very least. Look for add’l works from the likes of Aiko and others to join the streets of downtown LA over the next few days as we head into the opening of the big ‘Art In The Streets’ exhibition at MOCA.

We’ll post some shots of this beauty all finished up on Thursday – looks like tomorrow is crunch day to get this one all finished up. Definitely a treat for those to enjoy that will get to walk by this each day.

HOW and NOSM have been at work in downtown Los Angeles for the past 5 days pulling 12-14 hour days on a huge lift provided by JetSet Graffiti for their ongoing LA Freewalls Project. DABS MYLA got back into town last night and have joined the twins this morning. We’ll post some pics of that action here soon!

HOW and NOSM are in Los Angeles this week and working away on a huge wall as part of the LA Freewalls Project. The dynamic duo from down under DABS MYLA return this evening from recent travels and join the twins tomorrow afternoon. This is going to be one f’ing sick wall once it’s complete.

Thinkspace digital previews for our April exhibits

Timothy Karpinski 'This Much Is True' - acrylic and graphite on hand-cut paper

‘This Is Forever’ features a collection of over 40 mixed media works on paper and wood from two artists that openly wear their hearts on their sleeves. Timothy Karpinski‘s journal-like acrylic and graphite works on hand cut-paper are the perfect compliment to Dan-ah Kim‘s delicate works featuring the plight of her heroines in worlds both unnatural and familiar brought to life with gouache, hand-cut paper, hand-stitching, and other various mixed media.
