On now around Portsmouth, New Hampshire and at the Portsmouth Museum of Art is Street aka Museum, a show of indoor and outdoor work by street artists curated by Beau Basse from LeBasse Projects. The line up is Bumblebee, Herakut, Shark Toof, Alexandros Vasmoulakis and Case aka Andreas von Chrzanowski. The show is open now through September 11th. I recently posted a link to some of the murals that are part of this show, but here’s some work the indoor and outdoor work that wasn’t included in that last post…
Spoke Art‘s next show opens this Friday with a New Years Eve Party at the Lopo and Space galleries in SF. For me, the highlight of this show undoubtedly looks to be the room curated by Endless Canvas. As I wrote just a few days ago, I think GATS is awesome, and if Endless Canvas’ blog is anything to go by, those guys have a great eye and will put together a unique room that is definitely worth checking out. It’s not on the flier, but Feral Child will also have work in Endless Canvas’ room, which is awesome. And even though I think his May solo show was very very very heavily influenced by Faile, I want to see what Shark Toof does this time around.
Not sure about the rest of the artists, but if you’re on the fence about checking it out, I’d give Spoke Art the benefit of the doubt. They haven’t been around long, but they’ve put together a few great shows.
The street art I most enjoy posting on unurth is by those artists that haven’t broken into the mainstream yet, so when RJ asked me to do a guest post on Vandalog, I thought I’d post about some great emerging artists from here in LA. No Brainwash or Fairey here, but some great, fresh stuff.
Bumblebee, who is probably best known for these hives in abandoned phone boxes
