Last week, MOHS Exhibit in Copenhagen presented all new work from Dennis McNett (featured) collectively entitled Wolfbats Are Real. Including wood block pieces in the standard format, the Brooklyn-based also created installations in the style of his previous shows – all paying tribute to mythical creatures that make up part of his imagery. After sharing some of the setup, we now have some fully realized opening photos for you as well below… Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Dennis McNett here.

Last week, the Galleri Nicolai Wallner hosted the opening for a new exhibition from Bay Area-based artist Clare Rojas. As fans of her illustrative paintings full of folk art imagery have seen in recent showings (here & here), her work has become more and more abstract with this set of new paintings being no different. The progression continues with a more fragmented compositions and varied palette as you can see in the photos below… Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Clare Rojas here.
After being introduced the intriguing outdoor works of HuskMitNavn during Komafest (covered) last year, we were curious to see how his work translated to the gallery setting. A showing at the V1 Gallery entitled One Of These Days gave us this opportunity to see some new drawings and paintings from the Danish artist in his characteristic colorful, humorous, and cartoonish style. Head over for a look yourself if you are in the area through February 16th. Photo credit: Henrik Haven.
We’ve been following Brooklyn based painter Eric White’s (interviewed) progress as he was steadily working his brush magic over recent months in anticipation of his double solo show in Copenhagen, currently sharing the stage with Daniel Davidson entitled Magic Kingdom at Gallery Poulsen in Denmark. Eric has long been a man of transcendence, and this latest batch of work is certainly a representation of this. If you have the opportunity to attend the show in Copenhagen then we sternly suggest you make a night of [...]
With all the great art that is scattered all over the world, it’s not often that you can see works from prominent artists in your home town – and even less likely you see them side by side. That is exactly the scenario we have in Copenhagen at the V1 Gallery as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a massive group show entitled Tonight We Won’t Be Bored. Take for example the wall above that has pieces from Todd James, Futura, DearRainDrop, and Kenny Scharf that [...]
Earlier this month, the V1 Gallery in Copenhagen opened a new group exhibition entitled The Art Of The Joke. Curated by Kathy Grayson of The Hole, the show is a condensed version of a larger curatorial project by Kathy that will take shape next year at her showspace in New York. Spurred on by conversations with artists who did standup comedy as well as many artists who integrate humour into their works, the art show next year will turn her gallery into a comedy club. For now, [...]
Earlier this week, we shared some photos of the paintings from the current Todd James (aka REAS) exhibition, Free To be You & Me, at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen. Along with these works, the NY-based artist also created an installation of what he imagines to be the Vandal’s Bedroom , chock full of drawings and other ephemera that very well could represent James’ bedroom at one point in time. Street art fans who were lucky enough to have visited the historic Art In The Streets exhibition at the MOCA in Los Angeles may recognized [...]
Last week, the V1 Gallery in Copenhagen opened up Free To be You & Me, a new solo from the Todd James. Known as REAS back in the day New York’s early graffiti legends, more recently James has been painting his cartoonish mix of pirates, girls, and war-infused imagery with this show being no different. In addition to these colorful pieces, James also created an installation reminiscent of what he did for the Art In The Streets exhibition at the MOCA in Los Angeles – Vandal’s Bedroom (more on this [...]
Opening Friday night (October 5th) in Copenhagen at the V1 Gallery, Free To be You & Me is the newest solo show from Todd James. The imagery in this new body work continues to be dominated by his colorful chain-smoking pirate characters, brandishing weapons and causing mischief. The NY graf legend, otherwise known as REAS, will also be installing a recreation of the Vandal’s Bedroom (seen above) that premiered at the Art In The Streets exhibition at the MOCA in Los Angeles.

After bringing you a look at the new work from Thomas Campbell in Copenhagen, we now turn our attention to two of his other friends who were showing alongside him – Evan Hecox & Ed Templeton. The two other artists also opened solo shows entitled Known Associates & Litmus Test respectively at the V1 Gallery featuring Hecox’s urban environments pieces (seen above) and the skate subculture photography of Templeton. Check out the photo set below… Photo credit: Henrik Haven for Arrested Motion. Discuss this show here. Discuss Evan Hecox here.
