Aqua Art Miami

As of 5am yesterday morning, the White Walls crew has temporarily relocated to Miami, Florida. The Aqua Wynwood art fair opens this Thursday, December 3rd, where you can find White Walls at Booth 50. Check out the official lineup:

White Walls in Booth 50:

AJ Fosik, Aaron Nagel, Becca, Casey Gray, Ernesto Yerena, Greg Gossel, Jesse Hazelip, Jessica Hess, Kevin Cyr, Mark Warren Jacques, Mike Shine, Morgan Slade, Nas Chompas, Ron English, Shawn Barber, Isabel Samaras, Timothy Karpinski, Kill Pixie, Lucas Soi, and Erik Foss

Scroll down to see the large scale installations that Mike Shine and AJ Fosik have been working on while we hang this three day exhibition.

Even in the tightest of quarters, Mike Shine has managed to construct his signature “Art Shack” with the help of his sons and friends. The structure is solidly in place, but we all know that’s only half the battle. We anticipate long hours of painting the walls, inside and out, from Mr. Shine before the fair opens tomorrow.

Mike Shine isn’t the only artist putting his best foot forward this December. Just outside of Booth 50 near the fair entrance, AJ Fosik has installed one of his most intricate works to date. The brightly colored, three snouted creature is one of his strongest pieces of the year, if you ask us.

We are also happy to have Morgan Slade, Casey Gray, Aaron Nagel, Ramblin Worker, and Jesse Hazelip in Miami with us. We appreciate their efforts to be here, showing devotion to their craft and support of the gallery. Stay tuned for updates and we hope to see you in Miami this week!

Pixie Kills It in LA

For weeks we have awaited the opening of Kill Pixie’s new show, “I’ll Hit You Up Tomorrow.” Good thing Daily DuJour was in attendance, providing a thorough photo tour of Merry Karnowsky Gallery‘s opening reception. We also like DuJour’s commentary:

“The work explores the ‘games people play’ and more broadly the dichotomy between freedom and compulsion. The smaller pieces offer a very accessible entrance to Kill Pixie’s aesthetic with extremely reasonable prices. The pieces mix  dark humor, enigma, and a particular brand of whimsy.” -Jack in Shows, Daily DuJour

Return of the Self Portrait

Since the advent of photography, traditional self portraits have fallen to the wayside. Berlin’s Circleculture Gallery has proposed a show to gauge the contemporary self portrait, calling on Kill Pixie, JR, D* Face, Jeff Soto, Word to Mother and more for their personal interpretations of the theme. We can’t help but think of Scion’s Self Portrait series that is currently on tour; it looks like the mirror is making a comeback.

I’ll Hit You Up Tomorrow

If you find yourself in The City of Angels on May 30th, be sure to check out this enticing new exhibition by Kill Pixie at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. We are especially curious about the collaborative installation with one of our favorite bands, Autolux, who Kill Pixie has worked with in the past. The opening reception will be hosted by Tim Roth of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, which should make for a dramatic evening.

Fecal Face Tours Kill Pixie’s Studio

Fecal Face’s one and only John Trippe recently took a stroll down to LA for a studio visit with Kill Pixie. Read his thoughts below, and check out the studio visit snapshots:

On a recent trip down to Los Angeles we swung through Kill Pixie’s studio. This Australia (now living in LA) street artist creates dizzying precious works and installations. Well known for his street work back down under, Kill Pixie has been featured in Fecal Face shows and White Walls group and solo shows and was recently voted Sydney’s current Best Visual Artist. He’s currently represented by Merry Karnowsky Gallery in LA and has shown in their Berlin space as well. We recently created a giclee print Super Systems with him and have always been a fan of whatever he’s doing. -John Trippe
