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!  One of the first must see exhibits of the year is finally upon us!  Street artist and musician turned gallery artist Desire Obtain Cherish has just opened his first solo show in New York and you will not want to miss it.  Entitled “We Are Known by the Company We Keep” at Unix Gallery, the show is brilliant in every way.  Desire Obtain Cherish explores the phoniness of the art world (hence the title of the exhibit) with his take on mega-famous artists, critics and consumerism.  All the works in the show will make you smile and probably throw up in your mouth a little when you take a deeper look at his works and the bold statement he is making about the world we live in.

I strongly urge you to check out this show and if you are not in the New York area, check out DOC’s official website and I am sure you will agree that every work he does is absolutely genius!

Desire Obtain Cherish agreed to be photographed at the opening night reception and interestingly enough, the lighting sort of shaded his face, thus keeping up his street artist anonymity.  In the photo below, you can take a sneak peak of a live installation of his take on artists that use factories to produce “their own” art.

Is there anything BEAU cannot do?  I’m starting to think the answer is no.  The latest discipline that BEAU is conquering is music!  Political rap lyrics over hip hop beats, a new genre called Politca-Hop is born.  You can check out BEAU’s latest single “Another King’s Clothes” below and for a limited time you can download it for free.  Don’t sleep on this one.  Your life may depend on it!  You can follow BEAU’s music career at BEAUnyc on Soundcloud.  Enjoy!

Q&A with Street Artist XVALA

XVALA is not just a street artist.  XVALA is a tabloid artist.  His work focuses on pieces that address celebrity and popular culture.  If you live in Los Angeles or New York, there’s no way you have missed the “Fear Google” series that can be seen all over the streets of both cities.  I recently interviewed XVALA and at the conclusion of this article, if this doesn’t find you wanting to Google his Wiki, nothing will.

According2G: Tell us a little bit about your background including how you got into street art?

XVALA: Street art is what it looks like when my Wikipedia page is put in an unsuspecting spot that anyone can stumble upon. Anything I do can get edited, vandalized or deleted.
