Last Saturday marked a milestone for Copro Gallery in Los Angeles which has played host to the “BLAB!” show for ten years. We have covered the show throughout its run, originally created by the Blab World anthology creator and art director, Monte Beauchamp, known for his varied interests in art. Several of Blab World’s contributors have appeared in the pages of Hi-Fructose as well, most recently Robert Williams (HF Vol. 36) and Daniel Clowes in our next issue. With this year’s exhibit honoring the release of the next anthology comes a new crop of artists reflecting Blab’s ever-growing taste.
The next print issue of Hi-Fructose New Contemporary Art Magazine arrives in stores October 1st! It features a cover story on Jean-Pierre Roy, the colorful murals and art of Jet Martinez, narrative painter Mia Araujo, Andy Paiko’s ornate kinetic glass sculptures, Seamus Conley’s mood orienting paintings, stenciled street art from Logan Hicks, the drawings of Ryan Salge, a retrospective story on the murals of Kent Twitchell, an in-depth article on photographer Blake Little’s controversial honey-covered “Preservation” series. Plus reviews on the new George Barris monograph; Daniel Clowes and the new Eightball Collection, and much more! Pre-order from our store today here!
