Showing: Felipe Pantone – “Data Smog” @ Lebenson Gallery

After a successful SF solo show (covered), Felipe Pantone recently opened another solo with Lebenson Gallery in Paris. On view through May 9th, Data Smog is a brand new body of work featuring his ultra-modern style, which is influenced by technology and science. Pantone’s progressive approach is a product of his long efforts to create graffiti that will stand out among the jungle of advertising and commercial signs. Fighting this global visual pollution, he created a methodology that fuses bold elements of graphic design with highly evolved geometric shapes and abstract hi-tech […]

Previews: Marion Peck – “Promenades Magiques” @ Magda Danysz (Paris)

On March 15th, the Paris location of Magda Danysz Gallery will be opening a solo from Marion Peck entitled Promenades Magiques. The series of never before seen oil paintings takes viewers into her dream-like world inhabited with strange creatures and sad-faced children. She further explains – “If there is a narrative to emerge from my paintings, I hope it would be just like a very short poem. I imagine my characters as ones speaking slowly, carefully and quietly, not hiding their hesitations or even stumbling. Their awkwardness is, to me, a […]

Streets: Brandalism / COP21 (Paris)

The Brandalism project started in 2012 in London when two friends, sick of the visual pollution of their city, spent five days reclaiming 36 billboards in five cities in the UK. Two years later, we saw reclamation of over 360 corporate advertising spaces with hand made original art works submitted by 40 international artists. This year, on the 28th December, The United Nations 21st ‘Conference of Parties’ aka Cop21 was the perfect backdrop for their biggest project to date. 600 posters were installed in outdoor media […]
