Banksy – “Dismaland” @ Tropicana (Weston Super Mare – UK), Walls

Though the main focus of Dismaland was on art and creating installations & sculptures that visitors can interact with, Banksy and his team involved other artists that either visually or otherwise match his aesthetics or theme. So along with the ones presenting their gallery works, they included several artists whose primary form or place of expression are the streets or public spaces. These days where street art is building almost a negative reputation of being generic, decorative and more about quantity (or size), than the quality (or message), the […]

Showing: Lucas Price – “Dumb Poetry” @ Lazarides

On 1the 4th of August, Lazarides Rathbone gallery officially opened a major solo exhibition by Lucas Price aka Cyclops entitled Dumb Poetry. Both artist and the gallery used his debut appearance at this space to put together an impressive, coherent show. In his last show with Lazarides (covered), Price was mostly showing his portraiture work. This time however, he decided to present his version of still life works, a direction he hinted at last time. Both through sculptures, installation and oils, the new body of work features recurring images […]

Openings: Banksy – “Dismaland” (Day View)

After the exclusive press preview held on the 20th of August (covered), the 21st was day zero for Banksy’s newest and biggest show to date.

Along with main attractions (covered) of the fairground such as the game of tipping an anvil with a ping pong ball, sculptures and installations by Banksy scattered around the site, Dismaland has a large art gallery. Obviously, we’re not talking about the white cube kind of presentation, which is referenced by the ruined white walls in the main space, but still, this exhibition “comprise the finest collection of contemporary art ever assembled in a North Somerset seaside town.” The gallery show begins with Jenny Holzer’s electronic […]

First Look: Banksy – “Dismaland” @ Tropicana (Weston Super Mare – UK)

Banksy phenomenon once again showed it’s strength, influence and unpredictable nature when his largest project to date, Dismaland, opened doors for the press preview earlier today. Placed within the walls of a derelict lido site Tropicana in in Weston Super Mare, the show is built as a Bemusement Park for a family day out, but instead of sugar-coated fantasy land, it sends out a bit different message – sorry kids. Built in 1937 Tropicana was once the biggest outdoor pool in Europe and had the […]

Streets: Os Gemeos (New York)

After recent collaborative pieces with JR and Andre Saraiva (covered), Os Gemeos rounded up their stay in NYC with a massive new mural. Dedicated to “everyone that has made and continues to keep the real hip-hop alive” this fresh piece is a classic example of their work and shows their passion and dedication to the hip hop culture and everything it stands for.

Showing: Revok – “Revok” @ Ruttkowski;68

With his most recent solo show titled Revok, Jason Williams aka REVOK introduced his latest concepts and works at Ruttkowski;68 in Cologne, Germany. Opened on August 14th, the show will stay on view until September 27th. The title of the shows refers to the concept of identity that he has been exploring since 1990, when he adopted the name as his alias. REVOK was only a tag or a pseudonym when he started out as a graffiti artist, but later on it became a frame within which he can define himself without social constraints. […]
