Upcoming: Eric Yahnker – “Noah’s Yacht” @ Zevitas Marcus

On March 12th, fans in Los Angeles are in for a treat as Eric Yahnker will be opening his first solo in the area in nearly three years.

Upcoming: Maya Hayuk – “Grow Room” @ Alice Gallery

On 3rd of March Maya Hayuk will be back at Alice Gallery in Brussels to open her third solo with the gallery – Grow Room. From the few preview images we’ve seen, the show will include more complex compositions from the Brooklyn-based artist. Through intricate patterns and lush colors, Hayuk creates paintings and murals that recall traditional Ukrainian crafts, airbrushed manicures, and mandalas. Both rebelliously psychedelic and strictly symmetric, her works balance between creating a visual illusion and reusing orthodox weaving patterns. The new pieces look to be further experimentations, […]
Pedro Matos - INSTALL -4

Showing: Pedro Matos – “Less Than Objects” @ Underdogs

Currently at Underdogs in Lisbon, a show from Pedro Matos is on view through April 2nd. Less Than Objects continues a line of work that the Portuguese artist last exhibited at the end of last year in Milan (covered) that are rendered mostly on linen canvases. Some of the abstract textures painted by the Matos seem to mimic the beautiful decay and imperfections seen in urban settings, not surprising when taking into account his time spent on the streets as a young artist.

Showing: Pixelpancho – “Androidèi” @ Galleria Varsi

On the 19th of February, Galleria Varsi in Rome opened a solo show by Italian street artist Pixelpancho. For Androidèi, the Turin-born artist transformed the entire gallery into a setting of one of his familiar works. Known for large murals that incorporate elements of his country’s rich history combined with vintage, futuristic, and even steampunk elements, Pixelpancho approached installing this show in a similar manner. Turning the whole interior into a piece, where exhibited works on paper and canvas were only details of the greater installation, […]
