(via Beer with a Painter: Todd Bienvenu)
Todd Bienvenu’s studio is filled with stacks: art books on the floor, paintings leaning against the wall. Bienvenu’s work deals with omnivorous appetites – for company, pleasure, fun, music. The art books piled up are also unapologetically wide-ranging: Goya, Schnabel, Katherine Bradford, Vuillard, Dana Schutz, Matisse. Paintings lean on top of the books – nothing is treated as overly precious. Bienvenu has a great sense of humor; his paintings are wild and raucous, and the energy of his studio, with dozens of paintings in progress at once, is contagious.

Behind the scenes with artist Eddie Martinez

In honor of Eddie Martinez: Nomader, on view now at Kohn Gallery (Los Angeles), we paid a visit to the artist’s new Brooklyn studio. Martinez is best known for his textured paintings and sculptures where traditional oil paint mixes with the detritus of his studio and materials he finds in various locations near where he makes his work. 

Click here for an installation view of ‘Nomader’, an exhibition of new paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Closes Saturday, October 25, 2014.
