Teebs At New Image Art

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.

Chicago Gang Cards

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


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

New Works By Aaron Elvis Jupin

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.

The exhibition remains up till March 11th at Maverick Hair And Art Space, First Floor, 1/17 Griffith Street, Coolangatta QLD 4225, Australia


 

Bryan Yazzie At Space 15 Twenty

Longtime Innocnts advocate Bryan Yazzie recently had a killer opening at Space 15 Twenty. Bryan has worked for Urban Outfitters for some years now as a hired assassin display artist. Basically all the UO special projects her in Los Angeles are built by Bryan. They hooked him up with the exhibition space at the Hollywood location and set him loose. What ensued was great use of the space utilizing a hand-welded LED light based installation that when synced with the proper band (Terminal A) and fog machine, created quite the emotive environment. The exhibit, which also includes other goods handmade by Bryan, remains up for another couple weeks with very random hours.
