Showing: ‘Unintended Calculations’ @ Becker Galleries, Vancouver

Augustine Kofie, Jerry Inscoe, Remi/Rough and Scott Sueme were recently brought together for Unintended Calculations, an exhibition well curated by Indigo at Becker Galleries in Vancouver. The group of painters make for a dynamic combination, and each of the foursome presented post-graffiti inspired by abstract expressionism within their work. As well as the gallery exhibition, the artists took to the streets of Vancouver for some commissioned murals, which you can see here, courtesy of Graffuturism.

Streets: Brad Downey in Lisbon (Crono Project)

Berlin-based American artist, Brad Downey, has been keeping himself rather busy lately. His first show in the Middle East, We Are Beginning: Personal Projects in Public Spaces, opened this week at Cuadro Fine Art Gallery in Dubai. In addition, Downey’s work features in the group show What Is Contemporary Art? which opened Friday at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark.

Showing: Stik – ‘Single’ @ Subway Gallery

Stik’s simple portrayal of super-flat characters in the realms of the street has been effectively used to portray a variety of emotions in those few simple lines, addressing such issues and themes as race, homelessness, poverty, acceptance and belonging.

Single is Stik’s current solo show in the underground location of Subway Gallery, located in London’s Edgware Road. The […]

Showing: Part2ism – ‘A Retrospective 1995-2011’ @ Bar Lane Studios, York

It’s not often that AM gets to report on exhibitions in York, but this is one show that was always destined to happen. Part2ism, or Part2 for you old school graf-heads, is currently showing a retrospective of his work in his home town of York at Bar Lane Studios located just inside the city walls. Spanning the years from 1995 until the present, this body of work shows the journey that Keith Hopewell has taken since some of his first outings on canvas, as opposed […]

Showing: Sweet Toof & Shan Hur – ‘Having a Dig’ @ Arch 402 Gallery

AM went to check out Sweet Toof and Shan Hur’s work last week in the two-person exhibition Having a Dig. Arch 402 Gallery was a new name for us, but the location was good, and the brickwork arched space located under an overground railway worked well for this pairing of very different artistic styles. Shan Hur plays with structure and has embedded a series of vintage brass horns into the very walls of the gallery. The archaeological removal on concrete around the instruments was left […]
