Showing: “Abstract” @ BC Gallery

Berlin’s BC Gallery is opening a new season with an interesting group exhibition simply titled Abstract that opened September 26th. Featuring works by nine international artists, this show puts a focus on non-figurative artworks along with its possibilities and advantages. Experimenting with geometrical forms, materials, mediums and colors, often juxtaposing black and white, featured artists show their take on abstraction. While some artists such as Moneyless or Nelio use strict geometrical shapes, others break these patterns into new, unfamiliar ones. The creation and use of such unusual shapes […]

Previews: ‘Rewire’ @ Gamma Transport Division (Edinburgh)

Art and music have long enjoyed a reciprocal relationship. Take the album cover for example. For years, musicians have found or commissioned visual artists to portray an aesthetic that resonates with the contents of the sleeve resulting in a complete aural and visual package. Gamma Proforma’s forthcoming exhibition and project Rewire flip reverses this process with a collection of artworks produced by visual artists forming the inspiration for a series of sonic interpretations of the artworks by musicians. A perfect fit for Gamma Proforma who […]

Four graffiti & street art artists from around Europe were recently invited to Krakow, Poland to work on a project named Boom Apartments.

Recently, the artists finished the 1st phase of the project, which is painting […]

On the 20th of March, they opened Assioma, a two man exhibition in Milan, Italy, and introduced their first ever collaborative […]

Previews: “A Major Minority” @1:AM Gallery

Curated by Graffuturism founder and artist Poesia (interviewed), A Major Minority gathers A4 sized works from over 100 artists in 18 countries from what he likes to call “Othercontemporay Urban Art.” He states “because Urban Art has been misunderstood and ignored by institutions and their current version of art history, it was necessary to attempt to initiate and standardize a unique term that would augment and define this outsider art form.” Opening on March 14th at 1:AM Gallery  in San Franscico, the show aims to illustrate the large scope of this art […]

Openings: “Potse 68″ @ Circle Culture Gallery

To celebrate this big event, they put together a huge group show featuring works from their impressive list of represented artists such as Katrin Fridriks, Maya Hayuk or Aaron Rose, with the addition of […]
