Andrew Schoultz has an amazing looking installation now on view at Project Space, the joint gallery venture between Incase and Arkitip. The show, “Melt Down” features a variety of original works on various media as well as life size and neon pink blood splattered wooden tank bursting through a wall of golden bricks. Highly recommended.
A self-described art junkie, Andrew Hosner co-founded Thinkspace Gallery with his wife Shawn and their partner L. Croskey as a natural progression of his passion for the New Contemporary Art Scene in Los Angeles. Since its inception in 2005, Thinkspace has been one of the first galleries to give many of the artists who have graced the pages of Hi-Fructose — like Audrey Kawasaki, Stella Im Hultberg, Natalia Fabia, Kukula, Andrew Hem and more — major exhibitions that helped launch their careers. Andrew Hosner sat down with Hi-Fructose to discuss the origins of Thinkspace, his role as the gallery’s curator and his prodigious, private art collection. Read our conversation after the jump.

Inside a run-down building off Berlin’s Nollendorfplatz, an area known historically for both its gay culture and punk community, 12 artists from eight countries (Fernando Chamarelli, João Ruas, Alexis Diaz (La Pandilla), NoseGo, Word to Mother, Curiot, Low Bros, Andrew Schoultz, Glenn Barr, C215, Dabs Myla, and JBAK) worked for two days to create original artworks for the facades and windows of the currently unused site (exciting news about the future of this space to come).
The annual street art festival Pow Wow Hawaii kicked off this past Monday in Honolulu. Dozens of well-known street artists from all over the world are currently gathered in the Kaka’ako neighborhood for a week of mural painting — from renowned figures like Ron English, Andrew Schoultz and Augustine Kofie to noteworthy emerging artists like Seth Globepainter, Inti, Know Hope and more. Most of the murals are currently in their early phases, but Buff Monster and Nychos evidently are very speedy with the spray paint. The duo, who have collaborated previously, have been working with a harmony that’s fascinating to observe, and somewhat surprising, considering their disparate styles. Read more after the jump.
Portland’s Breeze Block Gallery has a knack for bringing together notable artists with very different styles and using the geometry of the layout to make the work show well together. For their upcoming group show “Buddy System,” artists like D*Face, Andrew Schoultz, Mark Dean Veca, Gary Taxali, Jessica Hess and Ben Venom (among a long list of others) each created two pieces (one 16 by 20 inches and one eight by eight) and then invited a “buddy” artist to create two pieces of the same dimensions (D*Face partnered with Word To Mother, Brendan Monroe with Anders Oinonen and Jessica Hess with David Young V). The result will be displayed as an eclectic grid of artwork from an unusual gathering of talent. “The Buddy System Invitational” opens this Thursday, September 5, at the Breeze Block Gallery in Portland.
