Winnel is an Australian artist and accomplished illustrator, who works in graduated washes of watercolor paint, pastel, and pencil. For this showing, she has produced a series of dreamy and lush portraits, of which you can see in some shots from the studio as well as a couple preview images below. Discuss this show here.
This year’s Nuart Festival (see previous years) officially opened this weekend and we have a plethora of new street pieces to share with you. Part II sees us taking a look at the work of Ernest Zacharevic (seen above), Hush, and Strøk. If you remember, the Lithuanian Zacharevic was featured in our Art Focus article last year. It’s nice to see his inventive and whimsical works get more attention and hopefully we’ll see him invited to more street art events. Also, see Part I of our coverage here. Photo credit: Henrik […]

St. Monci is an artist that has been catching our eye lately. From his delicately composed gallery work to his large scale murals, his clean line-work and use of colour presents a strong abstract aesthetic. This weekend, he opens his solo exhibition at Rochester, NY’s 1975 Gallery. Adventures in Technicolor opens on Saturday, 7th September, and from the looks of these installation shots taken by photographer Hannah Betts it would be well worth checking out in person if you are in the area.

Tomorrow (September 6th) in the UK, SABER (interviewed) will be unveiling all new works at The Outsiders in Newcastle.

One series consists of wood depictions (featured here) of the US Flag and the Union Jack, scarred and covered with his mark-making. The other pieces in the show are his abstract tags and urban calligraphy, sometimes peeking through from the back. Take a look at more preview images below… Discuss Saber here.
