New prints from Stella Im Hultberg & Ekundayo about to drop from Thinkspace…

We’re excited to announce two new prints being released by Thinkspace.

Stella’s new print for “Heartbeats” (her breakthrough piece from the recent “Smitten” show) is available now (call the gallery at 323.913.3375 to place a phone order) and look for a PayPal button to be set up this coming week to help make things easier. You can also shoot over your details to and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can to follow up.

Stella Im Hultberg “Heartbeats”
14″x20″ print (12″x18″ image area)

Giclee print on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag fine art archival paper

Limited Edition of 100


AND coming up in early January, we will be issuing a very special, hand embellished print from Ekundayo. The work “Too Much Of Anything…” is taken from his breakout debut solo show, which was recently profiled in the new issue of Juxtapoz, complete with a full page image of “Too Much Of Anything…”. Ekundayo has gone in and embellished the gold teeth, parts of the wings and crosses on each bible in the piece with gold leaf, he’s also taken blue acrylic and embellished his body and wings… and he’s even gone in and added some designs elements and marks with ink after he laid on the acrlylic and gold leaf embellishments. Truly a one-of-a-kind print with no two alike.

NOTE: We are now accepting pre-orders for this special embellished print – which will ship out in late January 2008

Jon Todd updates site / mention on / tons of upcoming shows to keep an eye out for…

Juxtapoz recently shinned a light on up and coming Canadian artist Jon Todd. We love his style and each work he churns out is getting tighter and tighter. He is in a ton of shows in 2008, including a big LA solo in Thinkspace’s project room next December… keep an eye and get on board now before his prices rise, as the amount of work he puts into each piece is stunning and the pieces should be going for so much more, but it’s all about the come up and getting out there… and he’ll be doing that in a big way in ’08.

Peep the Juxtapoz love here:

New print from STELLA IM HULTBERG to be released on Fri, Dec. 7th during ‘Snow Angels’ opening

Thinkspace will be releasing a new limited edition print from Stella Im Hultberg during the opening reception for the upcoming “Snow Angels” exhibition.

Plan to attend the opening on Fri, Dec. 7th and to arrive early. Prints will be available for the 1st time at this opening reception. There will be no pre-orders and a limit of one per customer. Any remaining prints will be made available the following day via phone orders at the gallery starting at 2PM pacific time (we’ll note on the home page of our site if that will be the case).

This print will be the largest yet from Stella and will be of her piece “Heartbeats” that was featured in this year’s “Smitten” exhibition at Thinkspace. Additional details including exact size, print run and price will be announced the week of the show.

A print for Ekundayo’s “Too Much Of Anything…” (featured in the new issue of Juxtapoz) will be ready in time for the holidays as well from thinkspace. Further details announced very soon.

An aritst to watch out for in the coming year…

If you are not yet familiar with the delicate and beautifully bizarre world of Japan’s Yuka Yamaguchi, please take a moment to check out her site at:

Yuka has shown the world over, and has really been picking up a lot of new fans in the past year via her active blog and exposure via a number of high profile group shows including .ISM’s Untitled Love Project.

Look for her to return to LA in Jan as part of Thinkspace’s special benefit for the API. Shortly after that she’ll be having her debut solo show in Japan – we wish her the best of luck!

Fans of Lilly Piri and Fumi Nakamura should definitely check her site out right away.
