Photos by G. Art by Adam Wallacavage.
After having been a fan of Adam Wallacavage’s work for years and seeing an artwork here and there in various shows, I’ve finally gotten to see a full exhibit of his work. “Magic Mountain” is currently on display at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York and it’s extremely cool. You’ll see Wallacavage’s signature tentacle chandeliers, but for this exhibit he has also has added new hybrid sea creatures to his arsenal.
It’s not possible to see the detail in these pictures so I urge you to head over to the gallery to see these works in person. Also on display are exhibits by Tara McPherson and Masakatsu Sashie. All three exhibits run though November 16, 2013.
You can see more pictures of Wallacavage’s cool art on The Worley Gig.

Adam Wallacavage and G
The Beyond the Street book launch at Deitch Projects in New York was by far one of the coolest events I’ve ever been to (which is saying a lot if you’re a daily reader and see all the cool stuff I go to) and over a month later, I am STILL writing about it! One of the many geniuses I shared my soul with, was artist Adam Wallacavage. He makes chandeliers that are beyond incredible. (See photo gallery here.) In addition to creating really awesome art, he is also an accomplished photographer and his 2006 book Monster Sized Monsters, is extremely cool. The book is a document of over 16 years of photos encompassing encounters with artists, musicians, daredevils and “all things weird.” Adam was anything but weird when I met him and I am grateful for the encounter! Thanks again, Adam!
