Mike Lee

mike_wildTHing001_smMike Lee creates great textural illustrations that feel like fuzzy childhood memories.  The above image is from Nucleus Gallery’s Where The Wild Things Are tribute show (Terrible Yellow Eyes). I know it isn’t Mike’s newest work, but I love his fresh interpretation of the characters.  Mike is currently working as a color key artist for Blue Sky animation studios – which is interesting, considering most of his personal work seems to be black and white.

Awesome Video Of The Day: Pink Terror Hawking

Artist Mike Barzman sent in this video today. The Audio is from one of the worlds greatest minds, Steven Hawking. I’m assuming it’s from a lecture or interview. Either way it makes for an interesting mix. Can’t go wrong with computerized voice and slow motion destruction.

Rachel Niffenegger

The faces that Rachel Niffenegger paints are seductive.  A couple of her inspirations are “an obsession for gross out humor and imaginings of fantastical death scenes.”  Her combination of a beautiful palette with zombiesque ghost portraiture works.  You could hang one of these over your couch, and when your family visits – they might not even notice you had a screaming skull from hell suspended in the air over them.

John Millei: Abstraction Master

I haven’t seen a show that has blown me a away in some time so it was amazing to see the current show at Ace Gallery by John Millei. I wasn’t familiar with Millei’s work but apparently he’s been making abstract painting for a while, working in various styles and techniques. I had a few minutes to walk through the show but I can easily say that this is some of the most important abstract painting being done in the last 10 years. My favorite pieces in the show were the black, white, and silver paintings from the Quicksilver, and Maritime series. These are massive paintings that command attention in both their complex compositions and masterly paint handling. The photos just don’t do the work justice as the subtle colors and layering are lost in translation. If you’re in the LA area do yourself a favor and check out this show. I already have plans to make a second and third trip myself.

Lola

lola imagineerWhatever Lola wants, Lola gets.  You know that anyone who goes by one name is cool as cool can be.  So that’s why you should definitely go see Lola’s second solo exhibition, “Ipsum Factum”, at Corey Helford gallery.  The opening is on Saturday March 27th, 8-10 pm.  But if you absolutely cannot make it out for the reception, the work will be up until April 14th.  After the jump, you can get one more sneak peek of Lola’s new work before the show.
