SKEWVILLE, formed in 1996, has been prolific in the street art scene way before it even became a scene. Most known for their silkscreen wooden sneakers that have been tossed over thousands of telephone wires worldwide.
The twin brothers have simply taken over our booth at Moniker and we are excited to share it with you all. Below is a full catalog of all their new works on view this week in Brooklyn, New York with us.

Here are a few stunning pieces for the walls of any passionate art collector who has a pulse on the new contemporary art movement. The following pieces were shown in London at the Moniker International Art Fair.
Sainer (Etam Cru) is a painter and muralist who is a graduate of Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. He currently lives and works in Gdynia, Poland.
Telmo Miel is Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann, a muralist and image-making duo from the Netherlands. Combining multiple elements in a single composition, they layer references to the human and animal worlds to create complex creatures and fantastic scenarios. With positivity, humor and a touch of the romantic, their work is arresting and epic.
James Bullough is an American born artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. His paintings, and huge monumentally scaled site-specific murals are phenomenal combinations of realist painting technique and graphic punctuation.
Carl Cashman creates vibrant neon colored op-art, a genre he has coined “neometry”, or neon geometry. The works are hypnotic, at times bordering on the hallucinatory, and blur the distinction between digital and analog forms.
David Cooley, a Santa Barbara-based artist is inspired by the idea of creating something that’s previously only existed in thought and making something that’s tangible, with the intent to have an impact on others, whether it’s thought-provoking, fun, or just aesthetically pleasing.
Kevin Peterson‘s work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.

If buying an original piece of artwork as a gift is too bold or rich for your blood, the Thinkspace Projects print shop is filled with beautiful high-quality giclee prints.
We had an amazing time at the Moniker International Art Fair, but don’t take it from us. Below is a few press placements highlighting our Moniker takeover.
Worth mentioning is the vast, eight-stand takeover by leading Los Angeles-based gallery, Thinkspace. In the first five hours of sales, the California gallery reported an income of over £100,000 across its group show and seven solo exhibitions, including the UK debut of Audrey Kawasaki, whose lowbrow artworks command between £15,000-£25,000 on the market, and other stands dedicated to Kevin Peterson, David Cooley, Brian Viveros, and Cinta Vidal. – Art Net

Thinkspace Gallery visiting from LA stole the show with an incredible 7 solo shows and one group exhibition – two of which sold out entirely on the preview night – with Dulk’s solo show ‘Extinction’ being our favourite show of the event. – London Calling Blog
Dulk’s “Extinction” opens at the Moniker International Art Fair tomorrow. A vibrant new body of work from Dulk of surrealistic landscapes full of inspired imaginative details. Dulk explains the inspiration behind the exhibition in a video giving the viewer a peek into his studio and adventures.
“When dreaming you can do anything. When drawing you can do anything”
Thinkspace Gallery is taking over the eighth edition of the Moniker Art Fair this coming October with 8 stands including seven mini solo-exhibitions and one group exhibition. We’re honored to be hosting the debut U.K solo shows for some of the biggest names in the New Contemporary/ Urban Contemporary movements. At least 8 new works will be on view from each featured artists in addition to a new print edition for their London fans. Each artist’s print to be released in tandem with the fair.
Audrey Kawasaki will be at Stand 28, and our group exhibition at Stand 34 where we will have our free Thinkspace logo parody buttons (in the vein of the classic logos of Slayer and Motorhead). We are really looking forward to meeting as many of our U.K. based patrons as possible during the fair.
Please note, we will be offering the works for sale first to those attending the VIP and Public openings of the Moniker Art Fair. We are committed to helping to build each artist’s patron base in the U.K. A digital preview for each solo exhibition and our group exhibition will be shared the morning of Friday, October 6th. We will then get back to all interested parties during the day of Saturday, October 7th to discuss purchases. Please do not call the gallery regarding Moniker Art Fair purchases on October 7th.
We can’t wait to debut all these incredible new works in just a few weeks.
