The love from Juxtapoz for ‘From The Streets Of Brooklyn’ continues in this month’s issue…

Our absolutely epic ‘From The Streets Of Brooklyn’ show is now sadly over, but the love from the press continues. After being named a ‘Showstopper’ in the last issue of Juxtapoz, the show has now received a full page of opening night pictures in the ‘Pop Life’ section of the new issue (cover below) that is hitting news stands this week. Thank you again to all that have helped to spread the word and support this show, we couldn’t have been more stoked with how it all came together and was laid out for all to enjoy.

View all the works in ‘From The Streets Of Brooklyn’ here.

Tons of love for thinkspace in new issue of Juxtapoz…

A full-page of opening night shots from ‘Mostly Memory’ with ELBOW-TOE and ARMSROCK and ‘Life Sentence’ with Jon Todd are included in the ‘Pop Life’ section…

Plus a ‘Showstoppers’ feature for our current exhibition ‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’

Luna Park posts her shots of LA trip / Shift feature…

‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’ main gallery view by Luna Park

Brooklyn street documentarian Luna Park is back in NY and just got in touch to share with us a short interview she did with me around ‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’ that just got turned into a lil’ feature on Japanese culture site Shift.

To view the feature / mini-interview with Shift, click here.

Luna’s also posted some of her shots of the Los Angeles landscape and works on the street that caught her eye (see below) over on her flickr, with promise of more to come, so keep an eye out here. She posted some beautiful shots, so be sure to check it out.

Ellis G. leaves his mark on Los Angeles…

Don’t sleep – these won’t last for long, so be sure to get on out and check out our block and the surrounding area before nature cleans Ellis G.‘s delicate chalk etchings away. His chalk work captures the shadows (both from the sun and from streetlights) of everyday street objects and their surrounding environment. Anything that casts a shadow is fair game for Ellis: benches (see above), bikes, fences, lightposts, and even full city blocks (most of our block has been outlined)…

Arrested Motion did a great write up on the installation he did around our gallery, check it out here. Some great shots from the area are also posted there (shot above courtesy of AM).

Check out a great interview with Ellis G. below from Friends We Love… great insight into how he approaches the streets…

View the below video “Life Of A Shadow” to see reactions to Ellis’ work and to get a lil’ background on what inspired Ellis G. to start this project:


To view more videos on Ellis G.’s work check out his MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/ellis_gee

In addition to his chalk outlines of shadows at night, be sure to check out across the street from our gallery to see a whole array of his sunlight shadow outlines (see above)… just amazing. Very cool to try and get them to line up again… amazing to see how quickly the world really does turn when you have a reference point such as these.

Ellis G. will soon publish his first book ‘Adhesives’, the ultimate compendium of graffiti, graphic design and street art stickers with Miss Rosen Editions for Powerhouse Books. Watch for it!

‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’ opens BIG!!! Works posted online Monday…

Huge turnout last night for our ‘From the Streets of Brooklyn’ group show that was curated by Ad Hoc Art out of Brooklyn.

We will have the works posted on our site come Monday from the show. Sorry we didn’t get posted prior to the opening as we usually do, but this was a monster undertaking and Disaster was working right up to the last minute on her awe-inspiring installation in our project room
