CA, San Francisco: Nov. 17, 2012-Jan. 5, 2013: APEX

941 Geary is pleased to present
a collection of new works by renowned street artist Apex.

The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Consisting of two 10x6' and ten 6x6' latex and spray paint on canvas paintings, 12 framed sketches on transparencies and a large-scale wall mural, Reflected is the next step in the artist's evolving look into abstraction. With a focus on mirrored images, the exhibition will explore the beauty of symmetry in nature and in design.

The artist's sharp-edged compositions contain a visual interplay of organic and structural form, Influenced by architecture, graphic design and the Fibonacci sequence. The multilayered, intricately stylized letterforms appear in Rorschach-like arrangements, characterized by a flurry of self-contained energy. In two paintings, layers of color build upon each other in bright bursts, but for the majority of the work the artist will employ a monochromatic palette, incorporating earth tones into a body of work for the first time.

San Francisco-based artist APEX has quickly made a name for himself in the world of street art, in both the Bay Area and abroad. Having coined the term "Super Burner," his pieces are most commonly huge, multilayered productions, packed with patterns and a vivid array of colors. The relationship his pieces have to the built environment creates moments of intersection, and opens up complex fields of color, as if they have somehow transcended into their own form of architecture. The work is most certainly its own form of typography is pieces are careful explorations of abstract letterforms.

1AM is pleased to present, “Over The Edge”, a solo exhibition featuring new works from German artist, MadC aka Claudia Walde.

This video montage of her Jurassic Park themed mural in Berlin, showcases her immaculate skills. Already one of the best mural artists and successful with her recently sold-out Paris show, MadC's burgeoning art career now begins in the west.

Call for artists: The Last Supper (Exhibit in Portland OR, Dec. 6-22, 2012)

Graeter Art Gallery
a call to artists

The Last Supper
Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

*An Artists' Pre-Apocalyptic Confessional*

Here's your chance to make that piece of artwork you've always wanted, but feared to, for dread of worldly persecution, imposed judgment or exile and an inevitable forlorn state of existential loathing from a self-imposed ego-implosion. Now is your time to break your own creative rules, mock your drafted creative constitution, to balk and rebel at your claimed artistic license, and snap the chains of a little artistic neurosis you've been suffering under for too long.


This is a juried art exhibition and is open to all artists. We will consider all mediums: oil, acrylic, watercolor, video, film, mixed media, photography, sculpture, installation, ephemera, performance, illustration, and beyond! Get crazy. The finished piece should fall within the price range of $1 - $500.


Send a detailed description of your proposed piece via email to: To be considered you must include the following information:

1. Detailed description of your proposed piece including medium and approximate size.

2. Your name and email address.


Selection of the entries will be made based on the submitted descriptions. Judging will be completed by early November and artists will be contacted via email. If selected, artists are responsible for delivering artwork to the gallery no later than Saturday December 1, 2012. Finished pieces must arrive ready for display. Each finished work must be accompanied by typed information that includes your name, email address, artwork title, artwork medium, dimensions, and price.

The Last Supper: Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

will be on display from

Thursday, December 6 - Saturday, December 22.

NYC LIC, Nov. 9-Dec 7, 2012 - Escaping Logik - Art in exchange for supplies for storm-hit families

I'm inviting you all to come check out this art show I'm having Nov. 9th. I considered postponing this show due to the recent hurricane, but I decided it is a good opportunity to pull people together do something positive. I understand a lot of folks can't travel and what not.

Those who can get up to Long Island City for a night of cool art, live music by Skye Steele's Hot Holy Mess, and free drinks will be in for a heart-warming time.

Also, I will be giving out FREE ART to people who BRING SUPPLIES that are needed for folks in areas such as Far Rockaway. We have access to a cargo van that can be filled with supplies, and brought to people who still have needs. Fine Art in Space in LIC will be bringing supplies to affected areas and helping out people with what we can. Anything will help, but the most needed items are blankets and food.

Even though we are all feeling the hurricane blues, take time to come out, look at some art, and interact with your community. Please come and enjoy a night out, and help me fill a van with supplies for fellow New Yorkers!

Escaping Logik

New York, New York - October 25, 2012 – Escaping Logik is a solo exhibition presented at Fine Art in Space by Brooklyn-based artist, Anthony Pugh. The show opens with a reception on Friday, November 9th from 7:00 pm-10:00 pm. Anthony will be presenting acrylic painted works, as well as over 100 watercolor pieces. In conjunction with his new work, he is releasing a limited edition sketchbook entitled Escaping Logik.

The works collected for the show encompass numerous themes such as Anthony’s personal commentary on social interpretations of historical figures, graffiti stories, and urban/rural mythology – he has secretly listened to a fictional conversation between Malcolm X and Robert Johnson. Anthony runs towards a creative vindication: shaping and developing a narrative about an evolving Negroid sentinel character, who is on the brink of breaking free from the contradictions of his environment and from the struggle to maintain his identity. The paintings depict the possibility of freedom from the barriers of social isolation and the constant flux between black & white.

Logik was once an alias for the artist, but now it is a metaphor for an evolving personal mythology, which he resists but cannot deny. Escaping Logik is influenced by Anthony’s experience as a graffiti artist, his love of comic books, and his fine art education.

Anthony Pugh is a freelance illustrator, comic book artist, and a dedicated painter. Some of his clients include: DDBO, Phoenix New Times, Mecca Clothing, Kid Robot, Spike DDB, Pepsi Cola, 11211 Magazine, Vessel Drinkware, City Pages, and The Village Voice.

NYC: Nov 9-24, 2012: Photographers Eriberto and Estevan Oriol [date changed to 9th]

Carmichael Gallery is pleased to announce
Like Father, Like Son : NYC 

a retrospective survey of works by renowned Los Angeles-based Chicano father and son photographers, Eriberto and Estevan Oriol. The exhibition debuted at Carmichael Gallery's Culver City space in the fall of 2011.

The New York edition of Like Father, Like Son : NYC will comprise fifteen limited edition black and white, color, silver gelatin and digital c-prints from each photographer, including works exhibited in Art in the Streets (April 17 - August 11, 2011) at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). The exhibition, which offers a dramatic taste of the urban California lifestyle, marks the first showing of the Oriols' work side by side on the US east coast.

There will be an opening reception for Like Father, Like Son : NYC on November 9 (new date), from 6 to 8pm at 303 Tenth Ave in Chelsea. Both Eriberto and Estevan Oriol will be in attendance. The exhibition will run through November 24, 2012.

Estevan Oriol

From hip-hop club bouncer to tour manager for Cypress Hill and House of Pain in the late 1980s and early 1990s to the internationally celebrated professional photographer, director and urban lifestyle entrepreneur he is recognized as today, Estevan Oriol's talent, fame and success only continue to grow.

1992 saw the beginning of what quickly grew to be an influential relationship with best friend, fellow Soul Assassin associate and now world-famous tattoo artist, Mister Cartoon. Together, they created the increasingly lucrative and high-profile Joker Brand Clothing, just one of Estevan's ventures in the clothing industry, which range from Not Guilty, produced with Everlast, and his solo line Scandalous to his eponymous line with Upper Playground.

In 1995, however, Eriberto gave his son a camera, and what began as a means of capturing life on tour led to a career that has snapped up images of everyone from gang members and graffiti artists to hip hop stars and Hollywood celebrities.
