This week’s Art Focus sees us taking a look at the unsettling work of Fabio Magalhaes. The young artist hails from Brazil, where he is based in the city of Salvador, also where he studied at the Federal University of Bahia. Working primarily in oils, Magalhaes paints as though he was a serial killer, with images of torture and body parts, and certainly it would be concerning if he used true photo references. So, we will just assume it comes from his imagination, studying anatomy textbooks, or […]

It looks like the infamous British man of mystery, Banksy, was active on the streets of his homeland this weekend. First, on Sunday morning a new piece appeared on the side of a house in Cheltenham. The stenciled image shows three old fashioned secret agents in brown trench coats, using retro looking gadgets to eavesdrop a phone booth. Even thought not confirmed yet as Banksy work, this piece has all the elements of his style, and it’s placed only 3 miles from GCHQ, home of […]
