Updated: solidARTy.org (II)

We recently got an update from solidARTy.org that they are started another round of charity art auctions on their website. The project launched back in November by auctioning artworks donated by artists, galleries and studios, with 100% of the proceeds going to AreYouSyrious.org organization. So far they have raised over €20,000 for the cause and are now continuing their efforts by offering more original and rare, editioned work by world renowned street, urban and contemporary artists. Along with some of the pieces that didn’t sell previously, the […]

Openings: Craww & Tatiana Suarez – ‘Through The Veil’ @ Spoke Art

Spoke Art’s latest exhibition opened on October 3rd in San Francisco. Through The Veil features the work of Miami based Tatiana Suarez and Sheffield, UK’s Craww. The pairing have shown together previously at the SF space, so this exhibition serves as a triumphal return / reunion of sorts for the artists, who both depict the female form in very different ways. Craww’s sinuous renderings are completed in oils – a transition he recently made, apparently with great success judging by the delicate works exhibited here – as are […]

Openings: “Wider than a postcard” & olive47 – “bonita bonita” @ Breeze Block Gallery

Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd. Over 400 individual works went into the postcard show with 200 artists providing postcard sized works. The work was hung on the walls in grids of 24 cards, each echoing the aspect ratio of the individual works themselves as each work was 6×4 inches. The variance of work encompassed photography […]

Previews: “Wider than a postcard” @ Breeze Block Gallery

On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]

Openings: Handiedan, Craww, Charmaine Olivia & Tatiana Suarez @ Spoke Art

Last Thursday evening, Spoke Art hosted the opening of an exhibition featuring 4 artists from different parts of the globe: Handiedan (Amsterdam), Craww (UK), Charmaine Olivia (San Francisco) and Tatiana Suarez(New York). Although each of the artists’ techniques and styles vary greatly, it is very interesting to see how they each interpret the common subject matter of the female form. To coincide with the opening of the show, Spoke Art also released a new giclee from each of the artists (which were also on display […]

Previews: Craww ‘Droodlings’ @ Electrick Sheep, Newcastle

South Yorkshire artist Craww picks up his tools and treks to Newcastle for his debut solo show “Droodlings” at Electrick Sheep Gallery on October 14th. The exhibition promises a mixture of acrylic works on paper, canvas, found materials and collage, as well as a selection of limited edition prints. Craww caught AM’s eye earlier this year with his delicate figurative works, which contain a healthy mix of dark and dreamy surrealism in their narrative.  If you like your art to tell a story, with a […]
