Showing: Herakut – “Flaw Circus” @ Ruttkowski;68

German art duo, Herakut, recently opened their solo show Flaw Circus at Ruttkowski;68 Gallery in Cologne, on the 29th of August. Only a few months after working on projects in Syria and North Jordan, Hera and Akut put together a show that speaks to the social & political issues around the globe and the way they’ve experienced them. Influenced by graffiti and street art culture, their visual language is a emotive mixture of everything from text and handwriting, expressive sketch-like elements, surrealist scenery and characters, to almost photo realistic […]

For this unique project, the artist prepared a 300 page book with guidelines about what he wants to be created […]

Recap: Kelsey Brookes – “Sleep: The Science and The Mystery” @ LSC Gallery

An intriguing show that recently ended in Detroit at the Library Street Collective featured new works from Kelsey Brookes. Collectively entitled Sleep: The Science and the Mystery, the new paintings from the former biochemist are constructed painstakingly with colorful patterns that in an abstract way define chemical and molecular structures. This particular set of mesmerizing works from the San Diego area based artist focused on Acetylcholine, Histamine, Norepinephrine and GABA, four neurotransmitters which help regulate sleep.

For this show, the NYC-based artist produced a series of new drawings, paintings, and sculptures. Recently, he shared teaser images on his Instagram profile, where it looks like he has moved on somewhat from the familiar renderings of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Lucy, to variations on small details of Charles M. Schulz’s iconic drawings. Also, as seen from the preview shots, he has created a new series of shaped pieces, painted on […]

Streets: Os Gemeos (Vancouver) – Part II

Although it has only been several days since we first reported on the start of a massive new 3D mural that Os Gemeos are working on for the Vancouver Biennale, twin brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo have already made huge progress on this project.

Aside for their playful and endless imagination, they are famous for their speed while not sacrificing detail work. Being able to work as one, completing […]

Streets: Pejac (Paris)

Pejac (introduced) recently visited Paris and left a several new pieces scattered around the city. We just got these images of the last three pieces he did there, and even though quite different in their concept and style, they are examples of his wittiness and talent. Using just a basic color palette (mostly black and white) with minimal intervention onthe  surface he is painting on, the Spanish artist achieves strong pieces both aesthetically and conceptually. The first piece is called Exit to Surrealism, and it’s a nice […]
