As noted, the actual city of Coachella does not derive any revenue from the annual music and arts festival and remains a poor farming community. Date Farmers, who call the area their home, curator Medvin Sobio, and the city want to bring attention to this by sponsoring a series of public murals – which brings us to the next wall we want to spotlight from Andrew Hem. The Cambodian […]

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 […]
