Finally getting to paint in the US for the very first time, Lonac recently finished his largest mural to date. His newest piece I lost my shoe when I saw you is now adorning a four story building in centerl West Palm Beach as the biggest mural produced for the Canvas Festival. Given a facade with a couple of unfortunate architectural elements, the Croatian-artist worked his way around these using them to his advantage. With a line of windows splitting the surface in two parts, he […]

Those who walked by the Pace Prints booth at Art Basel Miami Beach (covered) may have been surprised to see a new print available from KAWS.

Fluorescent Smogg at a location in Bristol will shortly be opening a new two-man show with Mr Jago (seen above) and Eric Haacht (seen directly below) entitled Working With Explosives. The exhibition runs from 1st to 4th December and each artist will be showing eight new paintings. Both bodies of work have their roots in abstract expressionism and feature a rich impasto application of paint, but from these foundations the two artists have taken their art in markedly different directions. Mr Jago’s practice is increasingly focused on […]

JonOne returns to New York next week (starting November 30th) for an exhibition at Galerie Bartoux entitled Crossing Over, the first solo show in his hometown since moving to Paris almost 30 years ago. The new body of work consists of 27 new paintings which address the relationship between chaos and order in our cities. The American graffiti artist’s loose and expressive handstyles bring to mind the spontaneous and chaotic forces within our urban spaces such as crime, art and public protest. These letterforms sit alongside areas of negative space […]
Mehdi Ghadyanloo was recently invited in by the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy in Boston to paint his first mural in America. The prolific Tehran-based artist worked on the large 70 x 76 foot wall in Boston’s Dewey Square Park (also painted by Os Gemeos in 2012) over the course of tree weeks creating a piece he calls Spaces of Hope, featuring some of his signature surrealist imagery.
