Preview: Nicoletta Ceccoli – “Incubi Celesti”@ Dorothy Circus

As we mentioned in out teaser last week, Dorothy Circus will be hosting a new body of work from Nicoletta Ceccoli (interviewed) on October 29th. The show entitled “Incubi Celesti” or “Heavenly Nightmares” is a fitting name for these new paintings. Although there is always something delicate and beautiful about Nicoletta’s work, each of these new pieces has some darker aspects to them when you look closer. More preview images she sent us after the jump…

Openings: Swoon – “Fata Morgana” @ Galerie L.J.

Swoon’s (interviewed) newest solo show “Fata Morgana” opened in Paris last night at the Galerie L.J. An appropriate title for her show as the Brooklyn-based street artist changed the interior of the gallery like a “unusual and very complex form of mirage” with her customary immersive installations. It seems like we haven’t seen her transform a space so extensively since last year in Berlin. Take a look at the exquisite paperwork, cutouts, and wall hangings after the jump courtesy of Guillotine.

Beyond Eden ’10 / Video: Robert Williams Lifetime Achievement Award

To cap off the our coverage of the Beyond Eden Art Fair, we bring you this video from sketchv from the Saturday night presentation of a lifetime achievement award to Robert Williams.

Abstract Expressionism, Conceptualism ruled here until right up until recently. If you come […]

Video: Interview with “Exit Through The Gift Shop” Producer & Editor

An interesting video popped up recently from Viddler where producer Jaimie D’ Cruz and editor Chris King of Banksy’s “Exit Through The Gift Shop” were interviewed. The two of them talk extensively about how the film came about and the background behind all the footage. Hearing this interview may put to rest some to the speculation that the movie was one big hoax, although some people will never be convinced.  Of course, this could all be part of the game but they would have to […]

Stroke.03 Art Fair – Chor Boogie, Best Ever, Roa, and Alexandros Vasmoulakis

We’ve been receiving some pictures recently from artists who participated in this year’s Stroke Art Fair in Berlin or Stroke.03, so we thought we’d write something up. We won’t focus on the fair itself but just the associated murals. Perhaps the most famous one from this year was the piece seen above by Chor Boogie painted on a piece of the Berlin Wall that amazingly sold for €500,000 (read the whole story here). Other notable murals included pieces from Best Ever, Roa, and Alexandros Vasmoulakis […]
