Gaia and Imminent Disaster debut their works in LA this weekend as part of Raw Skies...

'Raw Skies' opens this Saturday at the Carmichael Gallery and will feature the LA debut of works from Brooklyn, NY based street artists Gaia and Imminent Disaster, both of whom will be showing with us next January as part of a very special group show (details below).

(see's weekly show listing post below this for full details on 'Raw Skies')

Gaia will be in town for the opening (street work shown above) - look for his work to start popping up around the city... can't wait! We're excited to also have Gaia taking part in our special group show this coming January (see details below). Look for more info on his installation for this special show soon. He has some very big plans, including two installs on the streets outside of California that will tie-in and lead into the installation in our front entry area this coming January. All will be tied together by a blog detailing the two installs leading up to our show. The blog is to be launched soon... more info as we get it.

Imminent Disaster (street image above) will not be in town as she just returned from a long journey as part of Swoon's Miss Rockaway Armada. She's already working away on what promises to be a stellar installation for her show with us this coming January...

Speaking of, we announced this amazing show a bit back and since, things have been updated a bit with a few more names. All is now in place, save for a few big names to be announced soon/surprises night of the opening reception...
