As previously mentioned, the Portuguese collective Underdogs is currently hosting a solo show from Ernest Zacharevic. The Lithuanian-born artist, whose street works around his hometown in Malaysia have become viral sensations and one of the favorite tourist attractions, recently spent few weeks in Lisbon, creating and finally installing and opening his solo show Floor is Lava. Known for images that incorporate little children interacting with reality and real objects, this show is taking it a step further and places them in an imaginary world. Titled after the simple game […]

Counting down to the last days of the EVOL exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, here is a look back at the Berlin-based artist setting up for the show. Specializing in the reproduction of urban structures in the miniature on the streets, his work is intrinsically suited for the transition into the indoor setting. For Unreal Estate, his cardboard & stenciled constructions are commenting on the current state of the real estate market and comparing it to the post-wall, pre-gentrified East Berlin. He further states – “Society is constantly […]
Currently (thru October 18th) at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Philip Haas has installed his larger than life sculptures that take Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s famous face portraits (made from fruits, vegetables, flowers) into the third dimension.

Make sure you head inside to check out the smaller scale models as well if you plan to visit. […]

After setting up Thierry Noir’s London retrospective (covered) and a Los Angeles show (covered), Howard Griffin Gallery invited the legendary Berlin wall artist to put together another solo show that celebrates his second biggest love – music. Jazz was planned as a synthesis between the worlds of art and music through the colorful and playful filter of Noir’s practice, and it resulted in an overwhelming sensory experience from the floor to the ceiling of the gallery. While living in vibrant Berlin in the 80s, the French-born artist was constantly influenced […]

On the 29th of June, Jan Kalab (featured) opened his ninth solo show at the Villa Pelle in Prague, showing pieces created exclusively for this event. After introducing his art at fairs worldwide, this was an opportunity to put his work on display in his homeland. The Czech artist uses a lot of geometry elements and pure, bright colors in creating his pieces, which often blur the distinction between art and design. His minimalist visual language has been affected by his graffiti work, when minimalism was a necessity. […]
