The streets and buildings in Adam “5100” Feibelman’s stenciled paintings could be any city, but they seem like stills from a Hollywood set. Not for a sitcom or rom-com or com of any sort—no, these structures belong in thrillers and dramas; their dingy alleyways could be the last thing a victim ever sees. Like the German street artist EVOL, who exhibited at Irvine Contemporary last year, Feibelman’s urban scenes exhault in the grittiness of metropolitan living. But while EVOL was inspired by post-war architectural uniformity in Berlin, Feibelman has an eye for the familiar but unique—a mint-green house, a flowerlike fan, the shadows from a cascade of fire escapes. —-Maura Judkis
