THE Magazine covers Jeaneen Carlino…

“All of the artist’s various interests – Mexican motifs, Indian miniature painting, textile designs, and graphic patterns – fluidly come together, fully harmonized in the blend of both organic and geometric design.” – THE Magazine

Jeaneen Carlino “Moments of Bliss”
On view through Oct. 31st in our project room

‘Red Forest’ opening night…

‘Red Forest’ opened last night to a packed house… above are shots of the finished front room install/mural area…

The evening’s artists (l-r): Jeaneen Carlino, Ekundayo, Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez, and Michael Alvarez

Below are a series of shots of the finished interior before the crush of the opening night crowd invaded…

By 7:30PM we were packed and it never let up till way past midnight. What a night! Huge props to Ekundayo and KMNDZ for delivering what many in attendance claimed to be “the show of the year”, from gallery owners to collectors to regular patrons alike, all were praising the show throughout the eve. We’re honored to be hosting this show, but all the praise most definitly should be geared towards the artists as they poured their hearts into this show and it shows.

There’s also some great lil’ street gems still available (see below) when we left last night at 2AM… look about our block…

Watch for more news to be posted over the coming month…

The transformation continues… Red Forest nears…

KMNDZ and Ekundayo have been living at the gallery pretty much since Sunday afternoon and are down there pulling an all-nighter again tonight. Transforming the gallery from the ground up, so much going on… below is a candid shot of Johnny and Jeaneen both putting the finishing touches on a piece from earlier this evening…


Meanwhile, upfront in the entry area, Ekundayo is busy laying down the foundation for what will be an absolutely awe inspiring mural to great our patrons as they enter the gallery…


So much still to come… they are sleeping at the gallery, just going off on the place.

Flavorpill.net have named it the art event of this Friday in LA…

“Hot off the success of their individual Thinkspace exhibitions, Ekundayo and Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez join forces for their first-ever collaborative collection at their favorite Silver Lake gallery. Named for the “most radioactive place on Earth,” Ekundayo and Rodriguez’s Red Forest features paintings that focus on man and his many vices, comparing the effects of nuclear power plants to the effects of drugs, alcohol, and general debauchery.” – Ashley Tibbits (FLAVORPILL.NET)

Don’t miss this show. I can’t say much more than that.

Jeaneen Carlino studio visit…

Jeaneen Carlino‘s Moments of Bliss opens next Fri, Oct. 10th alongside Red Forest from Ekundayo and KMNDZ and Assholism from Michael Alvarez.

Jeaneen just shot us over a few shots of her studio and of her working on some of the pieces from Moments of Bliss.

Check out her ‘Sneak Peek’ flickr set here:

Below is her piece “Womb of Man”. This particular work from Jeaneen was one of the first we exhibited from her and helped to start our relationship with her and now resides in our permanent collection. Just love this piece and we wanted to share it with you all since this was from when we first started working with her a couple years back…
