As Issued, Costa Mesa based bookstore and art gallery, celebrates three years tonight with a show curated by Kevin Peterson and Marcas Contemporary‘s Dana Jazayeri. Titled “Tres Ãnos”, As Issued’s 3rd year Anniversary show will highlight new and original pieces by 21 artists- Nathan Spoor, JeanPaul Malozzi, Jessica Ward, Shane Jessup, Anthony Hurd, Edith LeBeau, Cate Rangel, just to name a few. They are primarily street artists and figurative painters of the Lowbrow generation, who credit their inspiration to ‘zine culture’ and share cutting edge aesthetics. Their artwork here touches upon several issues like love, religion and self empowerment. Edith LeBeau’s piece portrays her signature strong female figure intricately paired with fauna and flora elements. The female figure is also important to Cate Rangel’s art, who’s subject exudes boldness and fragility in pretty, blue hues. Then there are Shane Jessup and Cody Miles who’ve created more graphic pieces that mix animals with abstract shapes. Each artist offers something a little different, which is representative of the gallery’s mission- to support a variety of known and unknown artists trying something new.

As Issued’s 3rd Year Anniversay Group Show will exhibit at As Issued in Costa Mesa, CA through October 12th, 2014.

Kevin Peterson's subjects exist somewhere between a wintery city and sunny Houston, where the artist is currently based. Do a web search on his art, and the response is polarizing. Hyperrealism has become a controversial art form- most admire the excruciating detail, while others disagree with copying tags or photographs. Without question, Petersons' portraits of children in a graffiti-colored world are emotional and ironic. His current show at Thinkspace gallery, "Remnants", portrays his own fantasy-urban jungle.
Kevin Peterson is a Houston-based oil painter recognized for scenes in which wild animals and children interact against urban backdrops. One Peterson piece, "Coalition II," was recently used as the cover for the newest Red Hot Chili Peppers record, "The Getaway." The artist’s third solo exhibition with Thinkspace Gallery, "Sovereign," runs through Sept. 10. Peterson last appeared on HiFructose.com here.
In Kevin Peterson’s new show at Thinkspace Projects, child subjects are paired with sentient animals, unlikely castaways against desolate urban backdrops. "Wild," collecting new vivid paintings from the artist, show these subjects “interchangeably as beacons of hope and symbols of dispossession.” The show runs March 2 through March 23. (Peterson was last featured on HiFructose.com here.)
What determines an artist's most pivotal master-work? It could be near impossible to articulate, a question with more than one answer; workmanship, extraordinary design, originality, and influence on other artists. On Thursday night, Long Beach Museum of Art (LBMA) presented this to gallery goers with "Masterworks: Defining A New Narrative". The exhibition showcases 14 massive, critically acclaimed paintings by curator Nathan Spoor, Jeff McMillan, Esao Andrews, Sean Cheetham, Natalia Fabia, Alex Gross, James Jean, Josh Keyes, Mario Martinez, Greg Simkins, Nicola Verlato, Eric White, Aron Wiesenfeld, and Martin Wittfooth.
