NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
    Wednesday, 21 May 2014 /// Written by Trippe

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON


Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery
    Tuesday, 06 May 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.

So what's interesting about Alison Blickle's pieces at Kravets Wehby Gallery is that she is taking the traditional concept (documented by Frazer so well) of magic and applying it to a type of inner process that seems to be the primary promise of most spiritual/religious systems. Magic is no longer the ritual to ensure good crops, better health or a smooth childbirth. -continue reading

Pose MSK in the heart of New York City
    Thursday, 06 March 2014 /// Written by Trippe

The L.I.S.A. Project NYC invites Pose MSK to paint a mural in Little Italy on the eve of his show at the VOLTA art fair.
This week Pose MSK, who is visiting New York City from Chicago to take part in the VOLTA art fair with Jonathan Levine Gallery, painted a mural in Little Italy with The L.I.S.A. Project NYC. Pose's work combines elements of signpainting, advertising, comic books and graffiti into collage-like pop-art compositions. The mural is located at 188 Lafayette, at the corner of Lafayette and Broome, and is the only mural Pose has running right now in Manhattan, although many New Yorkers may already be familiar with Pose's work since he painted at Houston and Bowery alongside Revok last year. -CONTINUE READING

Jeff Depner at NYC's Nancy Margolis
    Friday, 15 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Vancouver based painter Jeff Depner ('12 interview) is currently showing new paintings in VARIATIONS BLACK NAPKINS at NYC's Nancy Margolis Gallery through Dec 7th. -PHOTOS

The work ebbs and flows between graphic qualities and thick painterly styles with muted but contemporary feeling colors. The constant process of ‘improvised moves' allows some of the work to be based in grid like structures. It allows some of the smaller paintings a chance for inquiry in constructive qualities and aspects of painting, inserting his work into the long history of painting. -our '12 interview

In his abstract acrylic paintings, Vancouver-based Depner explores compositional structure through the relationship between colors. His works’ painted layers create singular, functioning systems of interacting parts, yet juxtapositions permeate—between the architectonic and the organic, the graphic and the painterly, the matte and the opulent.

ICY Signs + Stephen Powers
ICY Signs - Perfection is Standard, Mistakes Cost Extra
October 24 to November 16, 2013
@Joshua Liner, NYC
I moved home to the Bay Area about 4 years ago and recently had the opportunity to visit New York City for the first time since. Having missed Barry McGee & Raymond Pettibon by a day, I felt lucky to have an old friend clue me into the ICY Signs show when I arrived. PHOTOS

Over the last decade, Steven Powers has proven his talent, wit and superior work ethic many times over. Beyond getting to study his work up close, it was neat to see the talent of all the other sign painters and collaborators he keeps company with. Had I known John would be posting these shit photos I would have documented their work a bit more properly. Take a minute to visit the gallery's selected work pages to see for yourself. - Adam C.



Banksy NYC, Over 'N Out
    Friday, 01 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Well, Banksy's month long experiment with the city of NYC is all but wrapped up... Gotta say that the "Spray Art" booth was his best. That guy from Chicago who bought 4 including the iconic flower molotov piece is sitting pretty. Lovely ~ banksyny.com

Banky's "Spray Art" ~~~ $60 each

In an audio guide accompanying the work (available on Banksy's website), the narrator says Banksy said of his month-long endeavor: "If just one child has been inspired to pick up a can of paint and make some art, that would be statistically disappointing considering how much work I put in."

He also said that if there was one cohesive message from the show, it's that "Outside is where art should live, among us," and that "rather than street art being a fad, maybe the last 1,000 years of art history are a blip, when art came inside in the service of the church and institutions." ~read on

Recent Works by David Lyle
    Tuesday, 23 April 2013 /// Written by Trippe

NYC based David Lyle emailed over some recent works as he prepares for his upcoming shows in both NYC and Paris. Check out some of his previous works.

Working from found photographs, Lyle's paintings are created through a reductive painting process where each piece is rendered using only black paint and turpentine. Lyle begins this process by priming a panel with white gesso. He then paints a thin, rich, oily black veneer over the primed panel, slowly and systematically developing his images by removing some of the black paint with a cloth. In doing so, Lyle renders layer upon layer of various values of black paint resulting in his signature-style of luminescent works.

Huey Crowley - Recent Paintings
    Friday, 21 December 2012 /// Written by Van Edwards

NYC based painter Huey Crowley, who was in our group show 11.11.11 last year, emailed over some new paintings based on reinterpreted children's fairy tales his grandmother read to him as a child.

Huey writes I chose to reinterpret these stories through my own narrative, and I chose excerpts from my own life to explore them. For example, in the painting "Toad I miss U" I am painting what I think it would be like if someone never listened to these stories or had a role model in their life... what their life would be like if they never had an adult around to read to them, or to care for them. The painting depicts an empty subway, with a homeless person's makeshift home inside. Surrounding the home are messages calling out to find Frog and Toad. The absence of role models can leave one’s life empty.
