This group show opens at Stay Gallery in Downey and features tons of great artists, including some of my favorites, like Mike Giant, as well as a lot of talented artists who are responsible for running some big streetwear brands, like Benjie Escobar, Graham Nystrom, Suedehead, and Mike Jones. The show has been organized by Parafloyd, a designer at REBEL8.
Meeting French artist Fafi, hearing her talk about her work, and watching her collaborate with a team of local volunteers was one of the major highlights of POW! WOW! Long Beach for me personally. Here’s a great video from Highsnobiety, which focuses on her characters and documents her work here in SoCal last month.
I really enjoyed the Nosego opening at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City this last Saturday. Having seen him paint in-person during POW! WOW! Hawaii 2015, I was already a huge, huge fan. If you’re interested in learning more about his work, or even just his cheese preferences, you can visit the Thinkspace behind-the-scenes blog Sour Harvest to check out their interview with him.
