Previews: Know Hope “Truth and Method” @ Gordon Gallery

About one year since his last show during Armory Week 2014 (covered), Know Hope is about to open a new solo, this time with Gordon Gallery in Tel Aviv, on March 26th. After intensively working on it for the past 6 months, Truth and Method is shaping up to be his largest solo exhibition in Israel to date. For this new exhibition, the Israeli street poet pushes his signature textual works to a whole new level through a series of triptychs created through an extensive and very […]

Streets: Phlegm (London)

Phlegm recently spent several days on a cherry picker in East London, painting a large wall near Old Street with generous help from Red Market and AltLondon. The finished piece is features one of his gigantic characters, cramped inside a typical English house, and includes a cool little nod to Banksy since it’s created on the same wall where the TV Out of the Window piece was painted. While this mural can be seen as a critique on the crowds and over population of the British capital, the artist stated – “It’s just […]

Previews: Seth Globepainter – “Walking on a Dream” @ Itinerrance Gallery

Almost precisely one year since his last solo show in his hometown (covered), Itinerrance Gallery in Paris will be opening a solo show by Julien Malland aka Seth Globepainter. After an extensive traveling schedule, the globetrotting muralist is ready to present his new body of work under the title Walking on a Dream. These traveling experiences are not only the French artist’s passion, but also a source of inspiration. Often working with local artists and speaking directly to the people he meets, he tries to create a dialog between […]

Previews: Ludo – “Fly Me To The Moon” @ Magda Danysz Gallery (Shanghai)

Fly Me To The Moon is a project that includes works that the young French artist worked on during his visits since November 2014 until March 2015.

Showing: Pablo Delgado – “On Their Level” @ Howard Griffin Gallery (Los Angeles)

Howard Griffin Gallery Los Angeles opened a solo by Pablo Delgado on March 7th entitled On Their Level. After showing last year at their London gallery (covered), the Mexican artist took a different approach to presenting his peculiar work this time. By changing the point of view and challenging the viewer’s perspective, the exhibition “explores multiple perceptions of society, equality, consumerism and temporality.“ Delgado’s street work usually consists of small installations within existing environments, which strongly affects viewing experience. With this new exhibition, he took this idea even further […]

Streets: Seth Globepainter (Paris)

After constantly traveling around the world, Seth Globepainter is currently staying in Paris and working on his upcoming solo show opening on March 20th with Itinerrance Gallery. The artist used this opportunity to finally take his part in the legendary Le Mur project by creating a fresh mural in his hometown last weekend. Le Mur is an ongoing art program where every two week a new artist paints a billboard panel on Oberkampf street in the French capital. Last Saturday, Seth took advantage of the sunny […]

Openings: Nawer – “Colors in Shapesland” @ Hidari Zingaro, Tokyo

Nawer recently opened his successful Tokyo debut at Hidari Zingaro Gallery. Co-curated by Takashi Murakami and Takumi “Kasenyan” Kaseno of the GEISAI executive committee, Colors in Shapeland is a part of KaiKai Kiki’s GEISAI∞Infinity​ project. For this show, the Polish artist created a whole new body of work consisting of his abstract geo-based pieces. While quite different than other artists on the KaiKai Kiki’s roster, Nawer’s futuristic abstract works obviously resonated with the local collectors as the show completely sold out. The dynamics he achieves with his refined geometric lines […]

Streets: DALeast (Delhi)

A few months after his last solo show in NYC (covered), DALeast (interviewed) went on a two month trip around China, Nepal and India. He timed his travels to arrive in Delhi on time to participate in the local St+Art Project with a fresh mural. Inspired by his personal experiences during the trip around Asia, especially India, the new piece represents the everyday chaos and crowds, yet all being functional and organized to some extent. The image of the chaotic flock of birds refers to such a state […]

POW! WOW! ’15 / Streets: Doze Green

Working on probably the biggest wall of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here), the legendary Doze Green and his team painted a mural with warm tones showing his signature characters in action. Using his recognizable line work and intuitive style, the artist who made his name on the streets of NYC came up with an interesting composition on a long wall. Spending days doing the fill ins and shading the large, almost tribal like characters, the sight of his mural slowly turned into a neighborhood attraction […]
