Dennis Hopper has to be one of the most well known actors in Hollywood. He’s been a key player in the art community since 1955 when he became friends with the gorgeous James Dean on she set of Rebel Without a Cause. Many people automatically associate Dennis Hopper with film when the truth is he’s dabbled in all aspects of the creative arts. Now, thanks to The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, we are able to take a glimpse into his creative mind. Dennis Hopper Double Standard is the first comprehensive exhibition of Dennis Hoppers work. The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, and photographs.

United Kingdom street artists Insa and Inkie recently packed up their paint cans, spray paints, ladders, and brushes and took their show on the road. The Fools Gold European art tour is allowing the duo to hit major cities throughout Europe before hosting a joint exhibition at Dr. Sneaker in Warsaw. The entire journey is being filmed for a documentary that will be shared with the public upon completion at Recoat Gallery in Scotland. These two guys create super dope work. Much respect for anyone who can create a piece of art the size of a city block.
The team released a teaser video of a work created in London.

Well, not only are organizations lashing out again the bill, artists are too. A roster of artist teamed up to speak out in a visual way at Mid-City Arts in Los Angeles. By The Time I Get To Arizona is set to feature 19 artists who were all moved by the acceptance of the outrageous Arizona Immigration bill. Check the video trailer:
