The always fantastic Andy Kehoe released 3 new limited edition giclee prints late last week, and as per usual, they are both rad and affordable.
As a sweet double bonus, he announced his “Punch The Economy In The Balls” sale, dropping the prices on a handful of his older prints. So, for all interested parties, now seems to be the opportune time to head over to his Etsy shoppe and take a look around.
Additionally, those of you unable to secure a Kehoe original over the years, I suggest following Mr. Kehoe on the ol’ Twitter. He has been known to announce on-sales for new original paintings there as well, rewarding the quickest amongst you with a great chance to finally get your hands on your very own piece.
Those of you reading this in LA are some lucky, lucky bastards. You have the opportunity to see some brand new Richard Colman work at New Image Art.

The show will feature new paintings, sculptures and even a few site specific installations… so seriously, you better fucking go. Show info and a more previews are below.

On the surface, it brought to mind Richard Prince and Francis Bacon, but it had a vibe all to its own… something sad, a touch unnerving, and very clearly affecting. I love his color palette, his distortions and exaggerations, but I also love that there is something about them I can’t explain. Needless to say, I can’t wait to see these in person. If you are in or near Chicago, the details for the aforementioned Aureus Contemporary group show at Art Chicago, as well as more of Hamid’s work, can be seen below.
