Some might think of Graffiti as an eyesore or hail it as one of the greatest expression of art, one thing that can be said about Graffiti is that it’s definitely an universal language  that’s often used to help bridge people together.  This past December I had the pleasure of traveling to Cartagena, Columbia to [...]

ART BASEL 2013: KESH Breaks All of the Rules

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/IMG_6017-300x250.jpg

What are rules? I was hanging out at the KESH exhibit with an artist friend, and he informed me that solo shows are a no go at Art Basel. The scene is controlled by galleries and art fairs, which sometimes can be a hub of commerce and 1 percent glad-handing. However, KESH, as with most [...]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Screen-Shot-2013-11-22-at-12.26.47-PM-300x250.png

“You can spend hours getting lost in these.” That was the common refrain at the latest New York City exhibit opening for Kris Kuksi, an artist based in Kansas, who makes staggering mixed media sculptures that can only be described as Baroque on acid. Classical figures brandish rifles. Faces grimace. Tiny figures of people undergo [...]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/cascade_broken-monuments-1-300x250.jpg

Encompassing 20 drawings on paper done over the last three years, the latest works of New Jersey-based artist John Aloysius Patterson have a spontaneous air with calligraphic touches. The strokes he makes are thought out. Others spring from a stream of consciousness. The exhibit of his newest works is being shown in the lobby of the Majestic Theatre Condominiums, [...]
