Showing: Cripta Djan – “In The Name Of Pixo” (Birmingham)

The Brazilian artist and pixação painter Cripta Djan is currently showing an exhibition entitled ‘In The Name Of Pixo’ at The Tramshed in Birmingham, UK. The history of graffiti is often told as a simple linear narrative with its singular root in the wall-writing of Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood and North Philadelphia in the late 1960s. However, this simplification ignores the multifaceted origins of the various strands of the global graffiti movement; these include the Old-English influenced Cholo graffiti from L.A.’s barrios, the Dishu ground calligraphy performed […]

Through simple shapes depicted with thin outlines, she constructs elegant figures that are interacting with each other and […]

Showing: Tom French – “Paralax” @ Unit London

On the 1st of June, Unit London opened a new exhibition of work by Tom French (featured) titled Parallax. Through this show, the London-based artist explores the literal, metaphorical and metaphysical manifestations of perspective and visual perception through his expressive monochromatic works. Stepping away from his previous work that used illusion and double images, French is this time focusing on the apparent displacement of his subject matter and its relation to the viewer. With this in mind, he snatches his figures, preserves them in oils with photographic clarity and incorporates them within abstract […]
