Showing: Fintan Magee – “Waves” @ Galerie Mathgoth

Galerie Mathgoth is currently hosting the French debut solo exhibition from one of the more talented muralists in urban art movement, Fintan Magee. Waves is also the first solo show since 2014 for the Austrialia-born artist who spent the last three years traveling the globe and painting some impressive, large scale murals. For this show, Magee produced a series of canvases that continue his ongoing figurative body of work that mixes realism and poetic dreams. Accented with a strong painterly approach, his images are permeated with surrealistic elements that are in constant juxtaposition with […]

Showing: Francesco Igory Deiana “Turmoil” @ Ruttkowski;68

Back to Cologne 5 years since his debut show with the gallery, Francesco Igory Deiana is currently showing Turmoil @ Ruttkowski;68. Showing wide variety of works, varying in size, technique and concept, the entire body of work is staying true to his concern with shape and its possibilities. Often starting his work from a single line, Italian artist prefers working with traditional media like graphite, ballpoint pen, wax pastel and latex paint, over customary fine art techniques. Using these unforgiving mediums, he produces work that documents the performative gesture of drawing […]

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 […]

Showing: “What In the World: The Juxtapoz Edition” @ Urban Nation

Urban Nation in Berlin recently teamed up with Juxtapoz Magazine, and its editor Evan Pricco, to curate their latest edition of PM/events. What In the World: The Juxtapoz Edition is the title of the group show that opened on May 19th, further introducing the wide range of urban art that this upcoming museum will be showing and supporting. The idea of this vibrant exhibition was to present the non-existence of boundaries in this lively art movement, through work by mostly Europe-based artists. Not defined as graffiti, […]

Showing: Haroshi – “GUZO” @ Nanzuka gallery

Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo recently opened the long awaited solo by local artist Haroshi (featured). After many successful shows worldwide, Guzo is the first major exhibition for the artist in his hometown. For this showing, the Japanese artist worked on a new concept and created a series of over 20 figurines carved from salvaged skate decks. After trying several different techniques of repurposing old skateboards over the years, Haroshi went back to the original concept of compressing multiple boards together and then using the resulting solid wooden slab as carving material. Through […]

Showing: Aaron Johnson – “Gone Fishin'” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

On 20th of April, Aaron Johnson opened Gone Fishin’, his first solo with Joshua Liner Gallery. For this showcase, the Brooklyn-based artist prepared a whole new body of diverse work that includes his unorthodox approach to painting and creating art work in general. The idea of the exhibition is to take a different approach to the traditional image of Americana and leisure lifestyle that goes with it. From fishing and hunting, all the way to America’s favorite snacks, Johnson pulled the stereotypical imagery through his own recognizable […]

Showing: The Toaster – ‘Toasted’ @ Jealous Gallery

The Toaster art collective have opened a ‘pop-up’ exhibition at Jealous Gallery in London. Following on from pioneers such as Goldie and Dicy, The Toasters emerged out of the Black Country graffiti scene in the UK in the late 1990s. Their work has seen them reproduce their image of the seemingly mundane toaster on a global scale with Toaster flags being flown at the Glastonbury Festival, Toaster road markings being painted along the route of the Tour de France and postal stickers being stuck up […]

Showing: Jaune – “I Wish You Could See This For Real” @ Vroom and Varossieau

On 21st of January, Vroom and Varossieau in Amsterdam opened a solo exhibition by Belgium street artist and urban interventionist Jaune. I Wish You Could See This For Real includes a series of new stencil-based pieces along with site specific installation that the artist created in the gallery. Using sanitation workers as his main characters, his work is always focused on the paradox between the visible and the invisible. The inspiration for the work comes from Jaune’s own experience while working in the profession. While cleaning the street of his hometown, he […]

Showing: Gee Vaucher – “Introspective” @ Firstsite

Gee Vaucher has recently opened an exhibition entitled Introspective at Firstsite in Colchester. This is the first major show of her art in the UK and it spans the last 50 years of the multi-disciplinary artist’s practice. The work from the first half of her career is characterized by searing political satire, which was intended as a force for social change. This included publishing the nihilist newspaper International Anthem and working for the New York Times, where she first started using collage. Her continuing relevance […]
