Around this time in 2005, Thinkspace gallery opened its doors in Los Angeles and gave many now-notable Contemporary artists their first big breaks. Several have graced the covers and pages of Hi-Fructose print and online- Audrey Kawasaki, Stella Im Hultberg, Natalia Fabia, Kukula, Andrew Hem, Fuco Ueda, and countless more. Rainy and freezing weather last Saturday didn’t stop the entire “familia” from turning out to celebrate Thinkspace’s 10 year anniversary (previewed here). The show boasts their 115 paintings on 10″x10″ panels (nearly, all of which sold) provided by Trekell art supplies. In 2014 alone, the gallery debuted rising international stars like Italian artist Marco Mazzoni (Hi-Fructose Vol. 20 cover artist), introduced new voices such as Joanne Nam (Vol 34), not to mention ongoing parternships with galleries to take their shows global. Despite all of this success, curator and co owner Andrew Hosner remains humble and passionate as ever: “We’d be nothing without the amazing artists we work to expose and grow… We can’t see ourselves stopping anytime soon.”

“La Familia: 10 Years of Thinkspace” Group Show is now on view through January 24th, 2015.
