Innocnts longtime compatriot Mtendere "Teebs" Mandowa currently has a solo exhibition on view at New Image Art in West Hollywood. A beautiful collection of new abstract paintings by Teebs inspired by the birth of his daughter Aya and his time spent nurturing and learning from her at home over a 16 month period.
Reoccurring elements from past works including ladders and blue/red cross-patterns are infused seamlessly with new organic shapes and dreamlike landscapes. Teebs palette continues to evolve with some of the new works in various shades of bashe, white, and brown earth tones. Much like his music the work is sensitive and warm and flows nicely from piece to piece.
Exhibition is on view till May 27th with gallery hours of 1-6pm Tuesday to Saturday.

With their murderous rabbits, awkward graffiti and awesome nicknames, the business cards handed out by Chicago gang members in the 1970s and 80s are a peek into a violent underworld
Some compelling new paintings by Aaron Elvis Jupin. Really diggin the light-handed use of airbush that has been entering the more recent works with added elements like shadows, reflections, and smoke. Always dig the suggestive quality of his work that is conveyed through the comic-like depictions and clever titles.

Diggin heavy on this new design by our dude D.J. Javier.
It took a minute to take in the passing of Chuck Berry. So many Innocnts shows have been graced with his music. An ongoing anthem of shorts for us. The original rocker! He will be missed dearly but indeed the music lives on. Here's one our favorite collective Check Berry moments.
