Andrew Hem's Richmond Mural

Last week, Andrew Hem returned from painting a wall for the Richmond Mural Project,  the latest edition of the annual urban beautification invasion curated by DC street art gallery Art Whino.

Employing a loose, painterly style reminiscent of his fine art work, Andrew gifted the neighborhood with a mural that combines pathos and humor in a return to his beloved theme of a world where everyone is accepted, no matter how outlandish they may appear. If you're in the area, go check it out at 14 South 15th Street in Richmond.  

Here are a few detail and progress pics courtesy of Andrew and Aaron "Angry Woebots" Martin

Dabs Myla's "San Francisco Is for Lovers"

Lucky San Francisco! You are playing host this week to dynamic duo Dabs Myla, whose installation "San Francisco Is for Lovers" opens this Saturday, August 17th at White Walls. Get ready for all-you-can-eat sausages, donuts and innuendo!

Rob Sato's "Interinhabitants"

If you happen to be in Copenhagen this Friday, August 16th, make sure to stop by Rob Sato's show "Interinhabitants," which will be opening at Mohs Exhibit.

As always, his watercolor handling commingles an intoxicating and seemingly contradictory amalgam of happy accidents and extraordinary precision. This time around, he appears to be exploring a sort of futuro-primitivist organo-mechanical archaeology with Old World overtones, reminiscent of fantastic artifacts from a bygone world displayed in a museum or discovered on a cave wall many millennia after their creation.

Edwin Ushiro's Black Drawings

Don't miss Edwin Ushiro's haunting black drawings this Saturday, August 17th at Giant Robot's "Stories" group exhibition. He will be showing alongside a coterie of good friends, including Tessar Lo, Sean Chao and Jeni Yang.
