As RJ mentioned a bit ago, Paul Insect has a new show in Los Angeles. A lot of care went into hanging and lighting this one, with the bulk of the work focusing on thematically-appropriate low light and dedicated spots on the pieces to highlight Insect’s bold colors. That being said, the darkest part of the gallery seemed to be the biggest draw, as visitors lingered around the Peep Show Box located in the middle of the room for a chance to peek through the lens. “Triptease Review” runs through December 1st at Post No Bills: 1103 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice, CA 90291.
The UK’s Paul Insect has a show, Triptease Revue, opening next month at Post No Bills in LA. While he might be best known in some circles for reportedly selling a boatload of art to Damien Hirst, Paul Insect has had a presence on the street on and off for years, even collaborating with Sweet Toof on a number of occasions recently. Paul Insect is one of those artists that I’m constantly going back and forth about. I’ll see one piece and love it, and then see another and thing it’s way too obvious, but at least that means he is constantly changing his style up and not getting stuck into one thing. I’m curious to see just what he’s come up with for Triptease Revue. Here are a few teaser shots:
Triptease Revue opens on November 2nd and runs through December 1st.
Opening in a few days at Post No Bills in LA, English 101 is a solo show of prints and other limited edition artwork by Ron English. Interestingly, Ron recently had a solo show of original works at Lazarides in London (Steve Lazarides is a co-owner of Post No Bills), he’ll have this show of limited edition works at Post No Bills and then he has a solo show of original works next month at LA’s Corey Helford Gallery.
