On May 12th, Lawrence Alkin Gallery will be opening the first London solo show by Florian Eymann featuring  23 original artworks in oil, watercolor and charcoal on paper, and canvas. Psyche-Soma is titled after the brain’s mechanism that is allows thought processing and links within our psyche, and will include an all new body of work created exclusively for this showcase. Eymann has built his reputation on alluring portraiture inspired by the masters, full of purposeful distortions and expressive sections of intense brush strokes and areas of thick impasto. Through such an approach, the […]

Showing: Addam Yekutieli (Know Hope) – “It Took Me Till Now to Find You” @ Lazarides

Last month, Lazarides Gallery opened a brand new show by Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope. It Took Me Till Now to Find You is the Israeli artist’s second solo with the gallery, four years following his successful debut (covered). Taking a turn from his previous work, this exhibition is the result of a large project that he has been working on for the last several months. After years of creating a recognizable visual language that universally speaks of real-life situations and human struggle, this particular body of work is more personal and […]

Showing: The Lost Object – “Finder/Builder” & Low Bros – “Wired” @ Stolenspace Gallery

Stolenspace Ballery in London is currently hosting a double solo show, presenting new works by The Lost Object and Low Bros. The first is an Amsterdam-based artist who is showcasing his latest body of work created with discarded or abandoned materials, while the Berlin-based art brothers putting their newest retro futuristic animal-based compositions on display. Hyland Mather aka The Lost Object creates works that are sort of a collaboration between him and time & nature itself, hence the title Finder/Builder. He is purposely incorporating the materials’ flaws and history […]

Showing: The Toaster – ‘Toasted’ @ Jealous Gallery

The Toaster art collective have opened a ‘pop-up’ exhibition at Jealous Gallery in London. Following on from pioneers such as Goldie and Dicy, The Toasters emerged out of the Black Country graffiti scene in the UK in the late 1990s. Their work has seen them reproduce their image of the seemingly mundane toaster on a global scale with Toaster flags being flown at the Glastonbury Festival, Toaster road markings being painted along the route of the Tour de France and postal stickers being stuck up […]

Previews: Mehdi Ghadyanloo – “Spaces of Hope” @ Howard Griffin Gallery

Howard Griffin Gallery recently announced their upcoming off-site project in the industrial 14,000 square foot Ambika P3 exhibition space in central London. On March 2nd, they will be opening Spaces Of Hope, a three day only solo exhibition of new paintings and installations from Mehdi Ghadyanloo. Two year since his last show with the gallery (covered) and few months after his successful public commission in the United States (covered), the Iranian artist will be presenting a new body of work influenced by the unstable times of modern history. Combining the experiences of […]

Upcoming: Okuda – “Lost Olympus” @ StolenSpace

Tonight (February 2nd) in London, StolenSpace will be holding the opening reception for Okuda’s new show entitled Lost Olympus. The new body of work from the Spanish artist features his representations of the mythological gods and characters from ancient Greece, painted in his signature multicolored geometric patterns. His vibrant imagery are sort of deconstructions as he mixes this many-hued approach with the other textures and patterns, a technique he also uses on the streets where he made his name. Discuss Okuda here.

Showing: Anselm Kiefer – “Walhalla” @ White Cube (Bermondsey)

Anselm Kiefer returns to the White Cube’s Bermondsey space after an absence of five years for his latest exhibition entitled Walhalla. Superficially, Catch 22 by Joseph Heller appears to be a novel about the Second World War, but scratching beneath the surface reveals a novel about the twentieth century as a whole with critiques of unfettered capitalism, the rise and fall of geo-political powers and our own inevitable mortality. Equally, at first glance, the work of Kiefer can appear to focus on the long, dark shadow cast […]
