Controversy Surrounding The South Park 20th Anniversary Show Censorship

Tonight, the South Park 20th Anniversary Show held in conjunction with San Diego Comic-Con unveiled works from artists asked to create works influenced by the animated series. Included here are some of the pieces painted for the exhibition, but the two first ones from Paul Insect (above) and Andrew Schoultz (directly below) were allegedly censored by the South Park Public Relations Team. We find it strange that an irreverent show that is and has embraced controversial topics in the past would decide to block works created in the […]

Previews: Paul Insect – “It’s Only A Dream” @ Allouche Gallery (London Popup)

Only few days before the opening of a long awaited London solo by Paul Insect, we got a nice peek at the artist’s studio while he was adding final touches to the new pieces. Presented by Allouche Gallery, the pop-up show will open on the 9th of April and will stay on view for 6 days at a yet undisclosed location in East London. The British artist started working on this new body of work right after doing his part for the Dismaland project (covered), creating 30 signature […]

Showing: Paper Party 3 @ “Galerie Le Feuvre”

On January 14th, Galerie Le Feuvre in Paris opened the 3rd edition of the annual Paper Party group show. Their first exhibition of the year features the same concept they started a few years ago, showing five artists represented by the gallery – Mist, Paul Insect, Ella & Pitr, Pixel Pancho and Daniel Muñoz – San. For this edition, each participating artist received a wall of the gallery to paint, adding sort of a mural exhibition along with showing smaller works. Each of the five murals measuring approximately six meters long by four […]

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 […]

Previews: Banksy – “Dismaland” @ Tropicana (Weston Super Mare – UK)

Well, it’s been a tough secret to keep, but after months of silence & speculation the cat’s finally out of the bag: Banksy is opening a new exhibition featuring his unique vision of theme park giant – Disneyland. Entitled Dismaland, Banksy & friends have designed & built a contemporary replication of the iconic amusement park experience, but this time, the anonymous contemporary artist from Bristol looks to create a “bemusement” experience like non other for those fortunate enough to make their way to the United Kingdom for his “biggest show to […]

Fashion: Bäst, Paul Insect, and Rostarr for Cocurata

Artists Bäst, Paul Insect, and Rostarr have recently collaborated with a new fashion label, Cocurata, on their inaugural collection. Bringing an urban sensibility to the design, the new line entitled Extraction is a nice start to the company, founded by George Gorrow and George Benias. Their idea was to arrange a “direct exchange between artist and artisan – a street artist working with a jeweler, a sculptor collaborating with a perfumer or a painter creating bespoke, ready to wear pieces – that would result in artwork […]

Je Suis Charlie

With the world’s attention on Paris after the tragic events that unfolded today, artists around the world have shown their solidarity with the French people by doing what they do best – making art. Inspired by the phrase “Je Suis Charlie” or “I Am Charlie,” creatives like Hanksy above have shown their support for freedom of expression with “cartoons” of their own. Take a look at a small sampling below…                               […]
