Great art, beautiful models and partying until the morning… […]

Kaws recently opened his “Passing Through” exhibition in Tsim Sha Tsui at the popular Harbour City complex in Hong Kong. The show appears to be a semi-retrospective (see pics a full retrospective here) featuring many of his classic as well as new art figures, sure to be a hit among his many collectors in Asia. Although there did not appear to be any new original paintings as many had hoped, there were some drawings included, a rarity for the artist – and of course the […]
Mission Inn’s notorious catacombs, once an underground museum that led mainly to Mt. Rubidoux and the nearby Riverside Evergreen Cemetery, had long been entirely closed off to the public. Baby Tattooville attendees were lucky enough to be the first group gained admission to these catacombs at Baby Tattooville 2009. This year, members of Baby Tattooville 2010 were also given the chance to visit the catacombs. Yet, this time the experience was a bit more relaxed, involving life sketching and complimentary ice cream. The decor in […]

Dan Bergeron (aka Faux Reel) has a cool show at Toronto’s Show & Tell Gallery. The ever clever street artist created a body of work utilizing the distressed surface of the street and integrates them with the charm & familiarity of the human face.

Baby Tattooville 2010 is underway! The day before the official madness began, featured artists were able to take a moment to catch up with one another over dinner and learn what BT is all about from the ringmaster himself, Bob Self. Proudly sponsored by Arrested Motion, artists and crew spent their first night in Riverside dining on delicious fried catfish, tortas, and burritos at BT fave eccentric dining spot Tio’s Tacos. Afterwards, it was back to the historic Mission Inn, BT headquarters, so that the […]
