Openings: Takashi Murakami – “Arhat Cycle” @ Palazzo Reale

Four years since Takashi Murakami’s show at Versailles in France (covered), the Japanese contemporary artist just opened a show with a similar kind of atmosphere at Milan’s Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale). Curated by Francesco Bonami and organized by Blum & Poe along with Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd, this is Murakami’s first exhibition in a public space in Italy. For this showing, the leader of the Superflat movement prepared new works presenting styles and techniques developed over the last two years. Juxtapozed against the imposing interior of the former Royal Palace, the entire […]

Previews: Interesni Kazki – “Inter Arma Silent Musae” @ Studio Cromie

Ukrainian art duo Interesni Kazki are currently in Italy where they are adding the final touches to their newest body of work for the upcoming Inter Arma Silent Musae show with Studio Cromie. The show opens on the 12th of July. The turbulent situation in their homeland caused the artists to put their works on hold and literally stop creating new art. The strong tension during the revolution and the pre-war surroundings just stopped their creative energy, and forced them to put down their brushes and paint […]

Showing: “Positivilly Marvillainous” @ Eric Firestone Gallery

Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton is currently hosting the Positivilly Marvillainous group show, a title borrowed from the smart word play of George Herriman, the creator of the Krazy Kat comic. The power of comics and cartoons, and the way they represent characters and tell the story is the main theme of the show. The idea that “still, simple and sophisticated characters tell our stories better than a complicated plot,” resulted in an exhibition that champion the character itself. The show features works by established and up and […]

Streets: Vhils (Portugal)

Only a couple days before the opening of his first museum show, Dissection, Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils finished this large outdoor piece in front of the Museu da Electricdade where the show will be held. As the last in a series of large works he created through the city, the final 360 degrees piece Panorama on the round water tank is one of his most elaborate ones yet. By transferring his scratched paper collage technique onto this large building, Vhils surely lifted up the quality of his work to another level. […]

Streets: Aryz (Spain)

Master muralist Aryz was recently in Granollers, Spain, where he spent more than two weeks working on this impressive new mural. Titled Priape and Dememter, the piece shows two Greek gods symbolizing fertility and nature. Slightly more realistic than the work we are used to from the Spanish artist, the imagery featured the mythological beings rendered with Spanish features. Dark haired, and with Demeter wearing a floral dress, they could be seen as Spanish countryside people instead of gods. Either way, this majestic image of […]
