Icy & Sot continue to produce thought-provoking work that reflects the troubles of our times in a new series of public works created as a response to the travel-ban in the US. Juxtapoz highlights the work as a continued departure from their classic stencil based pieces, which was first seen at the opening of Human (Nature) in November 2017 at our gallery.
We are excited to announce that pieces from Human (Nature) will be shown at the Fullerton Museum Center, with an opening reception tomorrow, Friday, January 26th.
We look forward to introducing Icy & Sot’s Human (Nature) to a new audience in Orange County.

“There was a special era in underground art, right before blogs and social media took hold and that monthly magazine that came to your doorstep was your only window into culture. This isn’t a time to wax poetic, but in hearing about Dalek/James Marshall’s Space Monkey 20th Anniversary exhibition at Thinkspace this Winter, it made us think about that time of discovery. It made us think of Murakami’s Mr. Dob, Camille Rose Garcia’s fairytale flourishes or a Shag lounge scene. These are icons that helped shaped the 21st-century art landscape, and the Space Monkey is right there.” – —Evan Pricco

Exhibition is open now through December, 23rd, 2017
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
Robert William’s Slang Aesthetics is set to open at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art next week on April 22nd. In anticipation of the exhibition, Juxtapoz Magazine has an excellent feature on William’s discussing a few of the pieces that will be on view. Jump over to juxtapoz.com for the full article.
Purple as an Inexplicable Poetic Force
Robert Williams: It is not my intention to take every color in the color wheel and extol metaphysical significance to each hue. Nor is it justifiable to invoke the laws of physics with regards to scientific observations of the prismatic spectrum. However, colors do have personalities.
Thinkspace family artist Troy Lovegates is featured in the March issues of Juxtapoz magazine. The issue is available on newsstands now and you can get a taste of the interview over on Juxtapoz.com. We love Troy’s unique way of translating his street art style into a gallery aesthetic with drawings, paintings, and sculptures. All available artwork from Troy Lovegates can be viewed on the Thinkspace Gallery website.
With murals scattered around the globe, what do you enjoy most about painting large scale, and is there any one piece that you took the most pleasure in doing?
A lot of days I start heading to my studio to work and don’t want to go inside. Instead, I end up just wandering all day. I hate being indoors. Studios are lonely boxes. Being an artist is one lonely ass thing to become. Being outside painting is a marriage of painting and fresh air. I love it. The last mural I painted in Toronto was 13 pillars with 13 locals painted on them. I took images of people who passed through the park and painted them. I really enjoyed how the community embraced the wall. People would come by with food and drinks just to talk for hours. That just doesn’t happen at my studio.
