Know Hope in town from Israel…

Know Hope is in town from Israel and is just killing it. You may have noticed some of his beautiful wheat pastes up about the LaBrea/Melrose area in the past week (see below) or perhaps been lucky enough to see one of his street lamp installs before someone ran off with ’em… either way, his show this Sat at Carmichael alongside Asbestos, Cherri Wood, The Dark and Kngee is one not to miss. KH and the Carmichael crew have transformed the back gallery into something that really needs to be seen in person. The beauty above is our latest addition.

Joshua Clay solo nears…

Joshua Clay’s 2nd solo show with our gallery is getting near… sneak previews will be posted as we head into the show at:
Joshua is pictured above in front of the mural he did recently in London with KMNDZ, Ekundayo and Mike Maxwell. The full mural is actually featured as the inside front and back inside color spreads of the new ‘London Street Art 2’ book issued by Prestel. It lasted all of a day, before some street art pirates came and snapped it up off the streets… considering the sheer size of this massive mural, it must have been a very planned out attack.
Watch for more sneak peaks to be posted soon.

“In The Land Of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor” is an exhibition that presents the work of 150 artists and posits that there has been a huge, but unacknowledged art movement taking place in this country for the last 40 years. Since 1994, this ground swelling of lowbrow, surrealistic, pop, figurative, narrative work has coalesced and found a voice in the pages of Juxtapoz magazine published in San Francisco. This rag has become the most widely read art magazine in the US. It is an influencing force on the aspiring artists of Generation Y and the Millenials, who are now enrolling in art schools in numbers never seen before.
