Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Final Days

Since we last mentioned Banksy’s ongoing art residency in the Big Apple, he’s since created a piece near Yankee Stadium (seen below) and painted over an existing piece in a thrift shop for charity (also seen below). And now, earlier today, he brought the historic Better Out Than In to a close with his take (seen above) on the bubble tags made famous by vandals in New York. The inflatable throw-up was seen on the Long Island Expressway near Queens. Discuss Banksy here.

Michael Johansson – “Shades and Variables” @ Galleri Andersson/Sandström (Stockholm)

A couple month ago, the Stockholm location of Galleri Andersson/Sandström hosted new work from Swedish artist Michael Johansson (featured). Continuing his recent spate of showings in Europe, Shades and Variables featured works that he has become known form. Color coded Tetris-like cubes constructed perfectly from everyday items, an installation wall of tightly fitted components, and his play on toy kits filled the space. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Michael Johansson here.

Previews / Videos: Michael Peck – “Love & Fear” @ Metro Gallery

On November 17th, the Metro Gallery in Melbourne will be hosting a new show from Michael Peck entitled Love & Fear. The fresh batch of paintings were developed during a three-month residency at Birrarung House where he was inspired by the desolate surroundings. As in past works, Peck re-imagines children in the role of adults – this time as hunters, trappers, and outdoorsman. Seen within the various associated paraphenalia like guns, ropes, firewood, bows, and arrows are some symbols of death. Take a look at more […]
