Structures: Alex Chinneck – “Minor On The Moon” (London)

After a creative redesign of a building several months ago in London where the facade appeared to be sliding off, Alex Chinneck has revealed his newest project. Minor On The Moon near Blackfriars Bridge in England’s capital turns things upside down with the remix of a 1780s livery stable through which cattle used to be shuttled for river transport. The British artist explains – “I wanted to create an artwork that offered spectacle, but was simultaneously subtle and by using the material and architectural language of the district the […]

Previews: Mark Whalen – “I’ll Meet You In The Middle” @ Future Perfect

Starting tomorrow, December 11th, through the 15th, Mark Whalen (featured) will be showing some new works in Singapore at Future Perfect.

Take a look some installation shots below and stop by if […]

Streets: Os Gemeos – Nelson Mandela Tribute

With the recent passing of Nelson Mandela, the world mourns the South African anti-apartheid revolutionary who had become an inspiration to the oppressed everywhere. His views and life seem to align with philosophies of many street artists out there who create work along the same lines with the themes Mandela supported. Os Gemeos recently posted up a tribute piece they did with a caption and quote – “Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions […]

Openings: Mike Leavitt – “Empire Peaks” @ Jonathan LeVine

Last month, we stopped by the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York to check out a new showing from Mike Leavitt (interviewed) entitled Empire Peaks. Showing alongside Riusuke Fukahori’s work, which also had a three-dimensional feel to it, the new body of work from the Seattle-based Leavitt featured a mashup of historical figures and Star Wars characters, something we gave you a glimpse of in our earlier studio visit. Take a look at some photos of the new sculptures, like the Ghandi x Yoda figure above… Discuss Mike Leavitt here.
