Here’s the video recap of the VICE 2014 Annual Photo Show at Superchief Gallery LA! What a fucking great time!!
devNgosha- Soze Gallery
(review by Sammy Winston - Click image for full photo set)
Los Angeles is awash in summertime psych vibes and wheelbarrows of shrooms, so the timing is ideal for the arrival of devNgosha, or Devin Liston and Gosha Levochkin. The pair of collaborators present the ebb and flow of existence as an outpouring of neon madness, twisting daydream surrealism into a reflection on the process of maturation.
Liston presents the confusion of modern man with a semblance of rigidity, creating grotesque portraits that could serve as the propaganda posters of low-budget dystopian films. The mugshots of Saturday morning cartoons. Maturation presented in a most immature manner.
Gosha, against a stark white background, offers creatures culled from murky Rorshach tests, cut open and bled of their hidden inner vibrancy. Color explodes from the folds of these playful monsters, lending the pieces an invigorating tension. One is left with the sense that there is a fantastic tale each of these creatures has comes forth to tell, if only one could bear to decipher it.
Boethius once posited that life was a wheel, and glorified, if not rationalized, all of its wonderful rising and treacherous falling and the schizophrenic beauty of the two. devNgosha offer that same wheel as a carnival ride. And as such, one finds themselves both charmed and unsettled in a candy-coated landscape.
Soze Gallery in Los Angeles will be presenting these dual collections from September 12th until October 1st.

Vice published a photo diary of the Superchief Gallery road trip out to LA, those sweethearts.
"Our favorite druggy-blog-turned-legit-art-gallery is opening a new space in LA."
Superchief Gallery was featured in Interview Magazine:
"Included in Superchief’s impressive rolodex is Swoon, who deserves considerable praise for staying faithful to the young curators after her highly celebrated crashing of the Venice Biennial as well as her massively successful installation at the Brooklyn Museum.
Like Swoon herself, Zipco and Dunleavy are extremely careful not to lose sight of their roots on the street. In fact, their move to L.A. seems to be less a detour or a simple change of scenery, and more of a conscious shedding of their recently garnered credibility as “serious curators” in New York City.
Their shunning of this title is not to diminish their professionalism—the boys have proven themselves to be highly responsible editors and gallery directors, often times despite their best efforts (a section of their magazine is titled “Smoke Weed to This”)—but rather to celebrate why people make art to begin with; to have fun, to express the frustrations of everyday life, to process inner struggles with sexuality or addiction, and let us not forget, to fight the power.”
And now, we take a moment to blush.
Our full appreciation and respect to everyone who’s with us- its been love at first sight and our family is getting bigger on the daily.
Lil Kool in Hong Kong last month! Superchief Gallery LA will be hosting Lil Kool in residency for October 2014 and presenting his first LA solo show!
"Joyce invited Brooklyn-based artist Josh Maupin aka LilKool to launch its first project “Downtown America” with a series of hand-painted murals. Visitors to the space will get the chance to see him at work transforming the space with his signature cartoon style influenced by graffiti, music, fashion and the Internet.
The artist will also be offering a selection of customized one-of-a-kind vintage clothing pieces, many of which have been sourced from Joyce’s various collections. For those in the area, the exhibition is open until May 30.”
EMPIRIA: Work by Kajahl Benes, Miguel Ovalle, and Esteban Del Valle. (Curated by Coby Kennedy)
COBY KENNEDY was behind one of the most talked about pieces of the BLACK POWER show at Superchief in April; assault rifle vending machines which depicted the role of corporate business in the perpetuation of urban violence and the practice of social genocide, realized as full size commercial vending machines perpetuating urban violence for profit.
EMPIRA is a work of his curation, featuring three artists of his choosing who create their own interpretations of reality who explore the themes of lost and found history, and the building of a mythology.
KAJAHL BENES was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, where he creates works such as “The Fresh Prince of North Utla”, which play on religious and historical imagery with an irreverent tone, while remaining visually rich in color and detail.
MIGUEL OVALLE, aka DIZMOLOGY, is an artist who specializes in painting, sculpture, drawings, photography, graphics, jewelry, and typography – but always coming back to graffiti, the central visual driving force in his work. Often, his work will have the best characteristics of any mural, no matter the size of the work; sprawling, involving, ambitiously and meticulously laid out designs.
Originally from Chicago, IL, ESTEBAN DEL VALLE is an interdisciplinary artist currently living and working in Brooklyn who’s work ranges from photographs, to design, to large-scale paintings and installations. Often, his work meshes together different mediums in a disorienting living collage, a theme that runs through his work.
Superchief Gallery NYC is proud to present 2014’s Summer Season Ultra Mega Group Show
In 2013, we did seasonal, massive, salon-style mega-group exhibits, featuring both artists that we have shown before and new artists that we are excited about. The show would inarguably be sensory overload, with art hung from floor to ceiling.
The idea of the show is to offer a seasonal opportunity to catch up with artists that we are psyched on, give a chance to a talented young artist who we think could use it, and exhibit friends next to other friends, so they can be friends- because thats what its about.
In 2014, we’re putting all of our seasonal aspirations into one show- our SUMMER SEASON ULTRA MEGA GROUP SHOW.
We’ll be having fam DJs doing short sets through the whole damn nite starting at 6pm and going til 10pm.
i say damn damn goddamn.
We’re incredibly proud to show you whats new.

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:
Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
…or something like this:
