On November 27th, a group exhibition organized by Henrik Uldalen, the founder of Paintguide on Instagram, will open at Unit London.

The show also is a product of the Instagram account as the participants were invited take over the account a week at a time with their artwork in the past.

Last week in Luxembourg, Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) presented new works entitled Somewhere Here at Zidoun-Bossuyt Galley. The Japanese artist’s new solo included a series of vibrant new paintings as well as steel sculptures created in monochromatic gold and silver. The New York-based Matsuyama’s characters were both rendered against complex “deco-florative” patterns in irregularly shaped canvases set in striking contrast against the white walls as well as were seen in a more minimalistic outline in sculptural form both inside and outside the gallery space. Take a look at more installation photos below… Discuss Matzu here.

Earlier this month, as a part of GEISAI∞infinity project curated by Takashi Murakami, James Jean (interviewed) opened up a solo show at Kaikai Kiki’s Hidari Zingaro in Tokyo. Entitled Zugzwang, the new body of work highlighted some of the American artist’s imaginative imagery in a large scale form that mirrored his moleskin sketches that we have come to love. Along with these figurative gems created in a blue hue and accented with red and pink, Jean also contributed a more painterly triptych that dominated the room. Photo credit: Ksn.
