Openings & Parties: Hello Kitty, Hello Art!

This past Sunday saw literally thousands of people come through Known Gallery to celebrate the release of the book Hello Kitty, Hello Art! and to see some of the art that surrounds it. This is dedicated to some of the bitties who love Hello Kitty.

If you missed it, you can purchase the book here

Art Explanations: William Buzzell

Sometimes it’s nice to know what’s going on in the picture you’re looking at. Personally, I always like to know what’s happening in Will Buzzell’s work. Since he has a new show up, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to ask him the story behind each piece.

His work is on view along with Andrew Jeffrey Wright and Jesse Harris in Permanent Demand at Cooper Cole in Toronto.

Babes of Yore: France Gall

Jonny Negron

Thanks to this newly published book through PictureBox, I’ve been introduced to the work of Jonny Negron. The best way to describe Negron’s art is if you took Robert Crumb, dropped him in on the border of Bushwick with a stack of King magazines, Japanese comics, and art supplies and told him to get to work. The results are colorfully addictive.

Pick up Negron on PictureBox’s website

Punk: An Aesthetic

For the most part, if you’re reading this website, you get it. So it is a no-brainer that you will appreciate this new title published through Rizzoli that’s edited by Johan Kugelberg and Jon Savage. Heavily illustrated and featuring rare artifacts from the origins of the punk movement, Punk: An Aesthetic is a necessary addition to that already top notch bookshelf of yours.
