The respective careers and backgrounds of David Choe and James Jean mirror the differences and similarities between their artist styles with an uncanny ability.  Where David dropped out of art school at early age and fueled his artwork by the experiences he picked up as nomadic traveler, James worked diligently at the theory behind his craft to become known for his exquisite illustrations and won a multitude of awards for his commercial work. Artistically, Jean takes deliberate and almost ornate strokes in his work and creates with a refined intricacy, where Choe paints with violently wild lines of vivid colors which portray immediate emotions. But both paths and styles have led to very similar success with each of them becoming staples in the fine art world – and although each artist possesses a unique and immediately recognizable style, the undeniable genius behind both of their work has become inherently similar.

The Honor Fraser team has begun to assemble an impressively comprehensive collection of Andy Warhol’s Camouflage series for an exhibition on the West Coast, the likes of which have never been seen. The event will showcase Camouflage canvas silkscreens and for the first time, prints from the series, alongside with previously unseen test proofs. The series was created by taking photographs of camouflage fabric, cutting the patterns into layers and then screening them onto canvases. The exhibition will run from October 30 until February 5, 2011 and will be accompanied by a catalogue by Vincent Fremont.

the-new-york-times-graffiti-of-past-revived-remade

The notion of retros and re-releases are something we’re all too familiar with. But for a New York graffiti collective known as “Slavery”, the wheels are in motion for their project titled “Subway Art History” which takes a different angle. The New York Times highlights the movement that together with the help of approved public spaces from businesses and schools, have gone on to re-create some of New York’s most infamous pieces. The original artwork has been re-interpreted, exchanging the original names of writers with important names throughout history including Plato and Joan of Arc. Inspired by Steven Powers (aka ESPO) and his project in West Philadelphia, the Subway Art History project hopes to be a lesson in history and education regarding both art and the beginnings of graffiti. For more information on the project, the article can be seen here.
