CERN ONE

Before street art began party-crashing the blue chip galleries, Cern (aka CernOne, aka Cernesto) was a local tagger of subway cars and brick walls. His meditative, playful murals still grace walls (and a few regular delivery trucks) around Greenpoint and Williamsburg, the latter where Cern has kept a studio since the late ’90s. Those were...

ALEX GREY

I recently came across some more Alex Grey content. This past April, the mystic artist hosted a full moon gathering in at his CoSM (Chapel of Sacred Mirrors) site in Wappingers Falls, NY, where a number of artists and disciples gathered to celebrate the spiritual side of art.

Maier was set to leave for Munich in the morning, with plans to hand-deliver the approx. 60”x48” artwork to its patrons. When...

JEN HITCHINGS

It’s a little last-minute, but there’s a group show tonight called MIXTAPE 2 that opens at Michael David’s studio in Bushwick, which features a few works by an artist that just came across my radar: Jen Hitchings. Some may know her as the manager of Pierogi Gallery on N. 9th in Williamsburg, which is where I’ve seen Hitchings many times...
