Openings: Laser 3.14 – “Troublemakers Make The World Go Round” @ Galerie Bart

Dutch street artist Laser 3.14 (featured), opened a solo show, Troublemakers Make The World Go Round, at Galerie Bart in his hometown of Amsterdam on April 12th. Through this exhibition, the mysterious artist introduced the indoor versions of the infamous statements, thoughts and slogans that he’s been painting around the city for the last 15 years. From writings on reclaimed builder boards, to cutout metal shields, and four colorways of a new fluorescent print edition (available here), these works are his comments and observations on the state […]

Studio Visits: Laser 3.14

The work of Amsterdam’s street art man of mystery, Laser 3.14 is slowly becoming one of the recognizable elements of the Dutch capital. Along with canals, bikes, red lights and coffeeshops, his statements sprayed all over the city are something a lot of people remember from their trips. Recently, we had a chance to visit Laser 3.14 at his studio in the Jordaan area, see and hear about what he is working on, and talk about how this phenomena started. By many accounts, Laser 3.14 […]

Ron Mandos Gallery in Amsterdam entered the new year with, Heimlich, a solo show by the Dutch artist Maurice van Tellingen.

Openings: Steve More – ‘Subtraction’ @ Unruly Gallery

Edinburgh based Steve More recently opened his solo exhibition entitled Subtraction at Amsterdam’s Unruly Gallery. More’s abstract work in his Syntax series, which has been developing over the last couple of years, takes centre stage for this exhibition of new work, and his creative process of applying and subsequently revealing layers presents a level of chaos in the background of his very controlled reductive technique. The clean geometric lines carved into the surface of the artwork present a beautiful symmetry and the perfect foil to the random nature […]
