Wonderful Land marks David Benjamin Sherry's second solo exhibition at OHWOW and features photographs from the American Western and Southwestern states, taken with a large format, handmade, analog wooden film camera over the course of several months. The artist prints each image in his own darkroom, creating vivid and detailed images with brilliant colors. The resulting body of work is at once aesthetically beautiful and wondrous as it reminds us of how spectacular nature can be. If you will be in Los Angeles and would like to view the show in person, you better hurry, because it closes on May 17. All images: Courtesy of the artist and OHWOW

Opening this Saturday (April 13th) in West Hollywood is Gregory Euclide's first solo exhibition with his West Coast gallery Martha Otero. The artist will present fresh work consisting of landscape relief paintings along with a series of porcelain-coated steel specimens painted with Japanese sumi ink. Euclide uses a range of media to create his signature immersive landscape pieces, including both components found in nature and also artificial ones as well. This duality of nature-made versus man-made reflects his highlight of the environmental friction of man's imperialistic usage of land with the damage created in making his own artificial products. Take in all the artist's architectural fine art works before the show ends on May 11. Discuss Gregory Euclide here.

Bumblebee's street work oftentimes deals with serious issues, such as youth homelessness and environmental awareness. His most recent mural though, a 8'x40' piece located on the corner of Melrose and Spaulding in Hollywood, CA, is of a more whimsical and personal sort. Walk the Dog combines the artist's childhood past times and hobbies of yo-yoing and skateboarding. As winter transitions into spring, be reminded of how much fun you had during spring break with no school and endless hours with your four-legged best friend and your favorite toys. Check out more images (courtesy of the artist), such as prep, process, and other detail shots... Discuss Bumblebee here.
