Belgian street artist ROA has a new exhibit at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York entitled “Metazoa.”  ROA specializes in the portrayal of animals, specifically those that have been forced to dwell in the outskirts of urban society, not unlike street artists, whose work once released into the wild can often get them arrested.

Within each panel of ROA’s works, you can move pieces around to reveal the carcass of each animal.

It’s definitely worth a look if you are gallery hopping.  “Metazoa” by ROA is showing at Jonathan Levine Gallery (located at 529 West 20th Street) in New York through May 2, 2015.

New York!  Head over to Jonathan Levine Gallery to check out two interesting exhibits:  “Unforeseeable” by Rafael Silveira (covered here) and “Power Tripping” by Australian street artist Anthony Lister.  If you’re a long time reader of the site (and I thank you for your patronage), you’re familiar with Lister’s work both on the streets and in the galleries.

There are at least 30 works in “Power Tripping” and Lister has painted frames on the walls.  Photos do not do justice to his works, so I urge you to check out this exhibit in person.  Part expressionism, part Basquiat, Lister also combines using oil with spray paint, keeping it real with his street art roots.

Brazillian artist Rafael Silveira has just opened his debut exhibit “Unforeseeable” at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.  His art combines classical painting with a twist of surreal imagery.

I loved the ornate frames and I loved the Travis Louie meets Mark Ryden absurdest characters in his paintings such as the Popsicle girl featured above.  Silveira says that he was inspired by walking around in his native Brazil where he encounters the bizarre and preposterous on a daily basis.  I can totally relate!

“Unforeseeable” by Rafael Silveira is showing concurrently with Anthony Lister’s also great exhibit
“Power Tripping,” (more on that one soon).  Both shows are at Jonathan Levine Gallery (located at 529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor) in New York through July 26, 2014.

Head over to two Jonathan Levine Galleries in New York to see three cool exhibits!  That’s a tongue-twister.  At the 529 West 20th Street (9th Floor) location, you can see “NY Hardcore” by Dan Witz, which features Dan Witz’ insanely realistic paintings from his mosh pit series.

Egon uses a variety of materials in his sculptures and he makes the viewer examine the relationship between art and commerce.

At Jonathan Levine’s new space at 557 West 23rd Street in Chelsea, a collective called Artists Anonymous have a show entitled “Old Game New,” and it’s a haven for selfies!

Let’s take a closer look…

Combining sculpture, painting and photography, Artists Anonymous’ work  involves an unusual technique of painting realistic subjects with inverted color values (as a negative image), then photographing the painting and reproducing it in reverse—resulting in a positive.
