Miss Van/Retna & El Mac:Shows To See

September 30, 2009
As an artist you do not just have to be conscience of what you are creating and where you are moving forward but also how your peers and “art heroes” are progressing. You can learn a lot from just watching on reading about artists and everyone has a handful of artist that they absolutely love and are inspired by. I recently saw some new work and read a wonderful interview from Miss Van (HERE) over @Juxtapoz.com. Miss Van was one of my first inspirations in creating these unique yet similar female characters that I paint today. She has a wonderful solo show opening October 1st @StolenSpace Gallery in London. Mac and Retna (HERE) are the definition of collaboration. They bring incredible technique and you can tell that there is a constant level of communication in their work as they push each other to make really powerful painting and murals. You can view images of their recent show @Robert Berman Gallery in California. Both shows are open to the public so make sure to catch them out if you are in the area.
