21st Precinct

by

VNA recently teamed up with Robert Aloia and Suzuki Capital LLC to bring together a groupshow of epic proportions at a derelict police precinct in NYC.

The show will be in the old 21st Precinct police building, located on 327 East 22nd St. It was built in 1863 and acted as a functioning precinct until 1914. We will have a pop up gallery space and 4 floors of murals, wheatpastes, graffiti and installations by renowned artists from NYC and worldwide. In the tradition of the Outlaw Parties of the late 80′s and early 90′s we will re-invigorate an unused space with a wide range of creative minds working in multiple mediums. Scheduled opening reception is 8/16/14 and will be open for viewing all weekend and a closing event the following weekend. The building is scheduled for demolition the last week of August. This will be the first of an ongoing series with Suzuki Capital at their various properties throughout the boroughs.

Herakut “Flaw Circus” @ Ruttkowski;68

by

herakut1

Jasmin Siddiqui and Falk Lehmann, or Hera and Akut, the members of internationally known artist duo known as Herakut, are opening their solo show @ Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne on August 29th. Through 10 years of collaborating on both large, outdoor murals and indoor exhibitions, they created a recognizable style which they’ve been known for. Strongly influenced by graffiti and street art, their unique signature style is famous for its melancholy and gratification. By mixing raw, expressive brush/line work, with realistic elements, along with text and messages, their new work kept the signature poetic and emotive feel. Using pastel, dimmed colors, they achieve more direct and honest impact as well as vintage feel to their work.

Eddie Colla “Atavisms” @ Ian Ross Gallery

by

eddie_colla1

Eddie Colla is an interdisciplinary artist and designer based in Oakland, CA. After graduating from California College of the Arts in 1991, he went on to pursue a successful career as a commercial photographer and photojournalist for the New York Times before turning his focus to his personal studio and street art practice.

Over the past several years his work has been developing around the idea of what would happen if life as we knew it began to deteriorate? Would human’s uglier instincts surface as we’re trying to survive? This apocalyptic scenario of is the main theme of his upcoming show “Atavisms” that is opening @ Ian Ross Gallery on August 22nd. With these new works the artist invites us to examine the primitive instincts that exist within us all.
