Streets: Joker / Shok-1 / Remi Rough (London)

There seems to be a whole lot of muralising going on around the Futurism 2.0 exhibition we previewed earlier this week with a host of out-of-town artists in London for the show (which opens on Thursday 27th September) such as Joker aka Jerry Inscoe from Transcend. Keep your eyes peeled for more action in the coming days. This collaboration between Joker, Shok-1 and Remi Rough works particularly well, and was completed over the last 2 days.

Showing: Adam Neate – “Dimensional Paintings & Editions” @ Elms Lester

Over the weekend, Elms Lesters hosted the opening for another solo (see 2011) from Adam Neate (interviewed) entitled Dimensional Paintings & Editions. The new body of work consisted of exactly that – his signature three-dimensionaly and richly textured paintings that pop right out of the wall and limited edition offerings. The almost sculptural quality of his pieces really need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. In some of the them, he was even able to include the cardboard his earlier work was associated with. Photo credit: Smart Hype. […]

Last month, we gave you a heads up on Slinkachu’s new show opening on September 27th at the Andipa Gallery in London. Now, take a look as we have gathered more preview images for Global Model Village, an exhibition featuring the street miniaturist’s installations from cities all over the world. An example of this is the piece above entitled Balancing Act that he placed at the Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, South Africa. The settlement is home to around 500,000 people and experiences many problems such as poverty, crime and a […]

Openings: Geoff McFetridge – “Around Us & Between Us” @ Ivory & Black

Last week, Geoff McFetridge presented a set of all new paintings at the Ivory & Black Gallery in London in an exhibition entitled Around Us & Between U. Working with the basic colors and shapes that he loves to use, the Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist is able to capture the human form and everyday objects with a fresh new perspective.

Upcoming: Shepard Fairey – “Sound and Vision” @ StolenSpace

Coming up in October, Shepard Fairey (featured) returns to the StolenSpace Gallery in London for a solo show entitled Sound and Vision. The name of the exhibition is taken from the song of one of his favorite musicians David Bowie and embodies one of the greatest inspirations for Shep’s art – music. The new body of work (in-progress above) includes mixed media works on canvas, screen prints (wood, metal, and paper), rubylith cuts, and retired stencils as well as an installation of a record store environment, with customized vintage turntables […]

Upcoming: Geoff McFetridge – “Around Us & Between Us” @ Ivory & Black

On September 14th, the Ivory & Black Gallery in London will be hosting all new works from the talented Geoff McFetridge. The Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist, who showed earlier this year at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (covered), will be revealing ten new paintings on canvas collectively entitled Around Us & Between Us. McFetridge seems to have a knack for breaking down objects and his characters into their most basic shapes and colors, often from novel angles and viewpoints. Here are a couple of images to pique your […]

Upcoming: “The Art of Chess” @ Saatchi Gallery

Inspired by a quote by Marcel Duchamp – “From my close contact with artists and chess players I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists” – the Saatchi Gallery in London will be hosting a new show opening on September 8th entitled The Art of Chess. These specially commissioned chess sets have been created by some of the giants of the contemporary art world including Maurizio Cattelan, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Oliver Clegg, […]

Showing: Matt Small – “Seen and Heard” @ Blackall Studios

Last week, UK-based painter Matt Small (interviewed) opened a new solo show at  Lackall Studios in London with a new body of work derived from his experiences while working on a youth empowerment project. Entitled Seen and Heard, the exhibition consisted of a series of portraits rendered in Small’s characteristic swirl of colors and attempts to bring a positive light to a subgroup of society that is often viewed negatively. Contact Moniker Projects for those interested in adding a piece to their collection. Photo credit of the show: Ian Cox. Discuss […]
