Canadian visual artist Camilla d’Errico has a solo exhibiton coming to the Mondo Bizzarro Gallery in Rome this week. Although she’s Italo-Canadian by birth, her work is widely influenced by the Japanese manga culture. She currently uses her paints to construct comic books and individual paintings. Her work stays true to the Japanese manga art form as her characters have the wide eyes and innocent demeanor we all are familiar with. The paintings featured in Codice d’Errico are for sale. If interested in pricing or purchase, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

San Fran readers, you are in for a treat! Photographer Austin McManus and painter Brandon Chuesy have collaborated on an artistic feat that features first time female taggers. You thought the Linkin Park / Jay Z ‘Collision Course’ album was something? This exhibit is just as dope. Who Needs Friends When You Have A Partner In Crime? is the duos attempt to challenged gender norms when it comes to the taboo topic of vandalism and graffiti. Super dope show at Ever Gold Gallery.

It’s quite difficult to picture any major US city completely deserted, but somehow photographer Matt Logue was able to capture such an unimaginable sight on film. Empty LA is a series of images featuring the City of Angels void of any type of human life. Creepy huh? No matter of eerie it may seem to image the city without a human presence, the photographs are beautiful. Actually, I like the city better without all the traffic. The images are available for purchase in book form on the Empty LA website.
