ILevel Installation: Wall-to-Wall Artwork

As far as gallery walls go, this next project was larger and more unique than most. The client had a collection of pink “tiles,” that they wanted hung across the length of two intersecting walls. Luckily for us, the wall-to-wall artwork was actually made of cardboard, something that simplified the process a bit.

The challenge, then, came not in the installing, but in the arranging. Because the tiles had such a linear, geometric design, we wanted the arrangement to be neat and deliberate. Which meant carefully laying out and rearranging the collection until we had just the right setup. To further emphasize the geometry of the arrangement, each tile has the exact amount of space surrounding it.

Come Visit ILevel’s Brand New Studio Space

ilevel studio space

What better way to celebrate a new year than with a brand new space? We’re excited to share that in January, ILevel officially moved to our beautiful new location, a 1600 square foot studio on 7th street. We hope our new home will not only give us a gorgeous space to showcase our work, but will also better allow us to help our clients visualize and find inspiration for the walls of their homes.

So what can you expect from our new location? For one, we’ve divided the space up into three areas. In the front office, we’ll welcome our customers to discuss project details and set up appointments, and we’ll have staff on hand to answer technical and product questions. In our gallery space, we’ll showcase our ILevel studio collections — sets of curated art and objects available for purchase (Learn more about unique collections from ILevel Studio here).

The final space, which we’re especially excited about, is the “workroom.” Here, we’ll hang rotating examples of unique art and photo arrangements in order to help inspire our clients about the possibilities for their walls, and provide tangible samples of what they can expect from our work. We will also use this space to create family photo walls–we invite our customers to bring in their boxes of old pictures (or an iPhone full of snapshots), and we’ll collaborate to sort, print, frame and arrange a beautiful collection of images. We’ll also host all events, workshops, and openings in this new space.

Want to see our new home for yourself? We invite you to stop by 37 East 7th St. to discuss a project, check out our collections for sale, or simply take a look around!


Pulp Drunk at the Ricco Maresca Gallery

We recently installed a fun new art exhibition for one of our longtime clients, the Ricco Maresca Gallery in Chelsea. The exhibition, called Pulp Drunk, is a showcase of Mexican Pulp Art– a popular style of cover art in post WWII Mexico that used racy, sensationalized images of violence, crime, or sci-fi scenes in order to entice customers into buying books. 

According to a press release from the gallery “These sensationalized images from the sixties and seventies often feature surreal and lurid images of extraterrestrials, robots, dinosaurs, killers, Zorro and many other icons involving suspense, mystery, romance, and the supernatural.”

We got a close look at all of the dozens of works going into the show when we hung them at the gallery, but here are a few of the ones that really stuck out in our minds: 

Untitled (Surprised woman with question mark man), c. 1960-75 tempera on illustration board, 15 x 11 in, 38.1 x 27.94 cm pulp-drunk-02.jpg

Untitled (Woman holding pig, cop in pursuit), c. 1960-75 tempera on illustration board, 15 x 11 in, 38.1 x 27.94 cm


Untitled (Gorilla attacking man as horrified woman watches), c. 1960-75 tempera on illustration board, 15 x 11 in, 38.1 x 27.94 cm pulp-drunk-04.jpg

Check out the show,  on display now though March 7, 2015.
