Streets: Deih – UpNorth Festival (Norway)

After introducing you to the work of Deih back in July, we now have another wall from him to share with you from the UpNorth Festival. The Spanish artist once again used wide range of colors to render out more of his comic-inspired characters that seem to be taken out of a fantasy or science fiction novel. The event held in the small village of Sulitjelma in Northern Norway takes advantage of the large abandoned factories after mining companies left the area. Curated and organized by anonymous Norwegian artist Stein […]

Upcoming: Tessar Lo – “No More Doubts, No More Fears” @ Project Gallery (Toronto)

Starting on September 10th, Tessar Lo (featured) will be presenting what he describes as one of his dream shows at Project Gallery (Toronto). Entitled No More Doubts, No More Fears, the work for the exhibition will be made as he lives in the gallery from the opening until the 30th. He hopes to deal with “ideas of immigration, nesting and establishment, and the development of identity that occurs within the combination of one’s geography and cognitive state” with the new body of work. Discuss Tessar Lo here.

Openings: Cleon Peterson – “Poison” @ Library Street Collective

Over the weekend, the Library Street Collective hosted the opening for a new show from Cleon Peterson in Detroit. Poison features new paintings featuring nightmarish scenes of violence and gore, nothing new to fans of the former assistant to Shepard Fairey. What is new though are the sculptural editions that Peterson has included in the new body of work, a natural next step to bringing his provocative imagery to life. Photo credit: Sal Rodriguez.
