Releases: Katrin Fridriks Print For Avant Arte

Katrin Fridriks recently joined forces with the brand new digital platform for collectible arts, Avant Arte, and created two new fine art editions.

Showing: Tom French – “Paralax” @ Unit London

On the 1st of June, Unit London opened a new exhibition of work by Tom French (featured) titled Parallax. Through this show, the London-based artist explores the literal, metaphorical and metaphysical manifestations of perspective and visual perception through his expressive monochromatic works. Stepping away from his previous work that used illusion and double images, French is this time focusing on the apparent displacement of his subject matter and its relation to the viewer. With this in mind, he snatches his figures, preserves them in oils with photographic clarity and incorporates them within abstract […]

Installation: Pejac – “Nature First”

Nature First is the title of the latest action by Pejac, revealed the other day via his official website. This installation once again shows his ability to work with different mediums while passing on a strong, important message. Like most of his works, this intervention speaks about environmental issues – the over-exploitation of natural resources, namely cutting down trees for human need. Playing with the idea of the surreal and familiar, the Spanish artist placed a children’s slide inside a forest in Olot just outside Gerona, […]
