three cheers for Travis Louie.

I’ve always been intrigued with the mystery of the Victorian era, where our understanding is generally limited to sepia-toned photographs and phonographs playing old-fashioned tunes. Imagine the local saloon, packed with the neighborhood characters, clinking cups overfilling with beer. Now fast forward to the present time, where we can raise our glasses to Travis Louie, the artist who has brought historical magic...Read...

word to the wise.

Ben Zhu has done it again. The director of Gallery Nucleus has managed to muster yet another sick puppy of a show, but this time a serious panty buster. Tomorrow, Nucleus will be exhibiting the tricks of four ingenious Pixar artists [Don Shank, Lou Romano, Nate Wragg, and Scott Morse], prepared to drop somadat ancient...Read...

sam flores @ subliminal projects.

Once upon a time, there lived a REDEFINEblog reader who had nothing to do. Skipping rope and Freeze Tag were tasks far too complex for this reader to comprehend, much less attempt, for Reader’s ass was glued to a chair and Reader’s eyes glued to a screen. “Oh, how I wish I could see the...Read...

herakut perfection.

Hera and Akut [Herakut] saved my life. They have managed to become my only exit out of my brutally mundane environment, spotty with pseudo-innovative chumps with tired techniques mistaken for creativity. Honestly, I don’t even want to leave my house for fear I’ll run into some of these half-assed stencils and installations that are out...Read...

cherri wood @ thinkspace.

“Raw, Imma give it to ya/ With no trivia/ Raw like cocaine straight from Bolivia.” Cherri Wood should really consider bumping the Wu-Tang at her exhibition at Thinkspace in Santa Monica. I’ll tell you why: because they both get it. They both get the fact that shxt doesn’t need to be polished to  be good....Read...

a salute to wayne levin.

Wayne Levin’s underwater photography makes my mouth water. I only just found him, though he’s been shooting since the ’70s, and I don’t know if it’s his eye or his guts that floor me more. Whales dance like they’re fxcking weightless. Sting rays hover like silk. A billion sharks swim to greet the frame; they...Read...

Luke Chueh At The Helford Gallery

Aw look, a cuddly widdle bunny wabbit with a blood-stained knife. And over there, a doe-eyed bear bursting into flames.   Welcome to the world of Luke Chueh, an artist that has left us with warm, fuzzy feelings for the past few years with paintings that aren’t so warm and fuzzy. In fact, they’re all...Read...

see scott c.

See Scott paint. Paint Scott, paint. Paint whole new worlds where ninjas fight smiling sushi, clouds are actually ant farms, and E.T. can be found messing around with a mummy. Or Batman. Or a Transformer. The comic artist tickles us pink with his child-like humor, incorporating ingenius subtleties into vivid images. Something about his tea-stained...Read...
