Sebastian Bach's most ambitious work was a 24 part comprehensive guide to the keyboard which demonstrated the musical qualities of every major and minor key. This film by Alan Warburton visualizes this classic Bach piece, inspired by minimalist sculpture and graphical notation. Enjoy.

Dutch multidisciplinary artist and designer Parra is back in NY for his 2nd solo show at Jonathan Levine Gallery. His work combines figure drawing, illustration, humor and minimalism using fine art mediums to create a world all of his own.
Esao Andrews is an American painter who has really mastered the craft of oil paintings. His work is a wonderful combination of a dark style executed in vivid colors that really bring the subjects to life. His first solo show in NY is currently on exhibition at the Jonathan Levine gallery.
Wayne White is an American artist, puppeteer, illustrator, art director and much more. In 1986, Wayne became a designer for the hit television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse which went on to win 3 Emmy's. About 5 years ago a friend of mine came across some of his word paintings in Los Angeles and I have been checking heavily for him ever since. "Invisible Ruler" is the name of his first solo show in NYC at Joshua Liner gallery. It showed a wide variety of skill set ranging from plays on classic american fine art to watercolor illustrations and a giant sculpture installation of the Louvin brothers. This was in my opinion the best solo show I've seen in NYC in 2014. Congrats Wayne, and thank you for all your hard work.
Cleon Peterson is one of my favorite current American artists. while his choice of subject matter is always chaotic, his balance between positive and negative often creates perfect balance that make even scenes of war or riots beautiful.
His 2 new prints are available here for $250.
Tomoo Gokita's work combines fashion, portrait style photography and abstract design merged into one to create an aesthetic all of his own. These large scale black and white paintings have a feeling of old meets new, replacing certain sections with patterned designs, or abstracting completely into a more minimal geometric style. Now showing at Mary Boone gallery.
