The killer new website/webshop/info portal www.TheGiantPeach.com recently paid us a visit here at Thinkspace and we just wanted to mention that to you all, as we really dig the site/shop and what they’ve got cooking over there. You may have noticed their cool ads in the past few issues of Juxtapoz.
View their visit to our gallery at the news archive link below, just scroll down to ‘December 6th’ and you can check it out:
They took a special liking to a new artist we were debuting in our back room by the name of Tiffany Owenby. Tiffany is a paper mache sculpture artist living in NC. I came across her work in NYC last year when I went to the gift shop for the Folk Art Museum there next to MOMA. This year I visited again, to find more new works, and decided to add a piece to our collection and got in touch with her upon my return to LA.
We’ll be posting some great new works from Tiffany in our ‘available works’ section later this week. Until then, check out more on here at her site: www.tiffanyowenby.com

Just saw this on the Kid Robot forum and wanted to send out our thoughts… this is just horrible and such a loss – Skot’s new body of work was just stunning.
From the board:
Hundreds of amazing and beautiful lowbrow paintings and artwork were destroyed yesterday morning when a fire broke out in Miami Wynwood Art District’s “Harold Golen Gallery” – the current exhibition was especially important due to the international art fair Art Basel, which wrapped up this past Sunday. Among the paintings that were lost are the work of Ron English, Tim Biskup, Niagara, Mars One and most notably Skot Olsen. The now destroyed show was called “Subjective Reality” and featured at its center ALL of the new neo-psychedelic artwork of Skot Olsen, which has taken years to complete. Destroyed in the fire were a dozen paintings by this lowbrow/pop surrealist artist who unveiling his new direction and more realistic painting style at Art Basel show this weekend.
All that remains of his work are a few prints available on the artists website: Saint Psilocybe & Saint Elyse’s Epiphany. http://www.skotolsen.com/purchase/prints.php
Obviously, Skot Olsen is shocked and heartbroken and could use any support that the art community can muster. A year of work down the toilet!
