Parra, the Dutch dude who draws weird psycho-sexual creatures and provides creative input for a brand hipsters would murder for, has a new show opening at Jonathan LeVine New York City tomorrow night. His last show at the gallery was in 2013. The images released for preview show the artist moving forward with his strident Post-Pop graphics on canvas, always repeated in his distinctive black-red-blue-white palette.
In many ways, Parra is the perfect Post-Pop figure, putting out commercial paint... [more]

He often works with a blend of soft and sharp focus because it creates a narrative surrounded by a sense of the unknown that resides in our subconscious, a place where we cannot fill in all the blanks.
Trained as a journalist, Larry... [more]

Bust out those mops. The Chinese art collective Polit-Sheer-Form Office is scrubbing Times Square today at noon as part of their "new socialism for the 21st Century."
