To help introduce art lovers to some of the Street Artists in the upcoming show “Street Art Saved My Life: 39 New York Stories”, Thinkspace arranged to have Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo of Brooklyn Street Art connect with a number of the artists in the exhibit so they could take part in the “Back Talk” interview series made popular by the good folks at Juxtapoz. Many thanks to Juxtapoz for running this series of interviews and to Steven and Jaime for all the hard work putting them together and for writing the beautiful introductory paragraphs that accompany each interview.

Anthony Lister has been in LA for the past week gifting us with some amazing street works around his recent show at HVW8. Everywhere from West Hollywood to Venice to downtown, Lister was busy during his brief stay. Coincidently enough his visit was just a couple weeks before our big show with the folks from Brooklyn Street Art that will feature his work.

In the week ahead watch for pieces popping up around the Venice area from the likes of Hellbent, El Sol 25, Adam Void, Creepy, Tip Toe, Gilf!, Hargo, Clown Soldier, Ludo and NohJColey. Look for pics to be posted in the coming week over at Brooklyn Street Art and here on Sour Harvest.

Be sure to also check out the wall Lister did in downtown LA as part of the ‘LA Freewalls Project’ over on BSA here.

Kevin Peterson on the cover of the new Blue Canvas

Houston based artist Kevin Peterson is on the cover of the new Blue Canvas. His debut west coast solo show is now on view at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice. The show is on view through August 6th, so be sure to check it out if in the area. We debuted Peterson’s work at our gallery during this past June’s Art Walk group show and we’ll be showing his work again as part of our curated show at the University of Arizona this coming September. Past that look for more to come in 2012 from Peterson including a solo show at our gallery next November.
