The Os Gemeos "Miss You" exhibit on view at Prism Gallery in Los Angeles is unimaginably good. Don't you dare miss it! These Brazilian twins manage to cover sweeping spaces from corner to corner and floor to ceiling with their signature rich hues and deeply intricate work.
You remember the vibrant and detailed work they showed for MOCA's Art in the Street show and the large scale mural they completed on Bowery in New York. Everything they do carries a BIG impact and they are immensely prolific, they never stop. The twins spent 6 weeks inside the gallery completing 2 large murals of their surrealist, yellow-tinged characters, influenced by the yellow hue pervasive in both their dreams.
In fact, the entire show was dream-like, with lit-up character's faces protruding from the ground like something from another universe. There were interactive installations and a mirrored prism to get lost in, as well. The entire show is a smash hit, and is completely sold out, with each work going for anywhere between $90-150k.

Los Angeles based artist Kenneth Price, known for his glazed ceramic sculptures which transformed the craft into an art, died of cancer last Friday at the age off 77. Some of Price's works are up in Santa Monica through March 3 at the Kayne Griffith Corcoran Gallery. They are oozing, drooping, and folding over themselves with fitting titles such as "Snot", "Surf" and "Scrotum". The ceramics were sanded to expose metallic and other colors beneath the surface which play beautifully with light.
Here are some pictures of the gorgeous ceramics.
Price has some watercolors up in the gallery, as well. Some are on loan and some are available for sale. They all make great use of color which I love and have a cartoonish pornographic quality to them, too.
"Don't Think About Her While You're Trying To Drive"
LACMA has been planning a career-retrospective of Price's works which is set to open in the Fall.
I recommend checking it out because his works are better in person.
Until then, you can check him out at:
