We had an amazing time at the Moniker International Art Fair, but don’t take it from us. Below is a few press placements highlighting our Moniker takeover.
Worth mentioning is the vast, eight-stand takeover by leading Los Angeles-based gallery, Thinkspace. In the first five hours of sales, the California gallery reported an income of over £100,000 across its group show and seven solo exhibitions, including the UK debut of Audrey Kawasaki, whose lowbrow artworks command between £15,000-£25,000 on the market, and other stands dedicated to Kevin Peterson, David Cooley, Brian Viveros, and Cinta Vidal. – Art Net

“(Thinkspace are the) mandarin of the graphic and urban art scene.” – Financial Times

Thinkspace Gallery visiting from LA stole the show with an incredible 7 solo shows and one group exhibition – two of which sold out entirely on the preview night – with Dulk’s solo show ‘Extinction’ being our favourite show of the event. – London Calling Blog
Our friends at Arrested Motion published some amazing coverage of the opening of Urban Nation Museum in Berlin.
“Located on Bülowstraße in Berlin-Schöneberg, Urban Nation Museum now offers a clear overview of the current state of the street and urban art scene worldwide. Under the motto “UNique. UNited. UNstoppable.”- Arrested Motion.
The Urban Nation Museum has been 4 years in the making, and our curator/ co-owner Andrew Hosner has been going back and forth between Berlin and Los Angeles as one of ten curators who worked together to select 150 pieces that combine various styles and techniques of the urban art scene.
Please jump over to Arrested Motion to see photos of the Openings: Urban Nation Museum and Openings: Art Mile – Urban Nation Museum.
Vice Media’s Creators recently featured Thinkspace Gallery artists Kisung Koh.

Interested parties can contact email@example.com if they are eager to add this sweet piece to their collection.
The opening reception of Casey Weldon’s Sentimental Deprivation was recently covered on Juxtapoz.com. Go on a digital tour of the exhibition over on Juxtapoz’s website, and view Sentimental Deprivation in person during its final week at Thinkspace Gallery.
From optically disorienting four-eyed kittens and seemingly phosphorescent girls to giant disproportionately scaled Chihuahuas in desert canyon landscapes, nothing is too weirdly outré or unimaginable for Weldon’s visual fictions. – Juxtapoz.com
A beautiful flip through of Thinkspace family artist Tran Nguyen’s gorgeous layout in the seventeenth issue of Beautiful Bizzare.

Tran Nguyen’s currently showing a new piece in Flourish at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum and will be exhibiting in Swank in September.
