VNA Issue 12 Launch & Live Painting with Mr Jago

Issue 12 features Belgian street artist Roa on the cover, and another reason […]

Ben Eine’s Strangest Week

And so, a very unique and a very strange week for Ben Eine has come to an end. Unless your head has been in the sand, you’ll have seen that his painting “21st Century City” was gifted to Barack Obama by British Prime Minister David Cameron, and as a result, Eine has been all over the news – TV, radio and the papers – even some of AM’s own pictures appeared in The Guardian amongst a variety of other places. A multitude of articles appeared […]

Openings: Pure Evil – “Strange Girls” @ Pure Evil Gallery

AM dropped in to the opening of Pure Evil’s new solo show last week at the Pure Evil Gallery, which was looking resplendent under it’s brand new gin-palace styled black and gold leaf signage. Gin & tonic was being served of course in this bastion of East London creativity, and Charley’s large scale “Strange Girls” decorated the space. It’s good to see PE’s work in his own gallery, and this exhibition signals a change in the direction his gallery work is taking. Taking a series […]

Preview: This is China show

Although we have been enamored with Japanese artists for a while now, recently we have been increasingly interested in the Chinese art scene.  It seems more and more intriguing artists are popping up on various sites…  If you add to that, the fact that western artists seem to be showing more in Asia, the time seems ripe for the kind of crossover show that is opening this weekend in Seattle. “This is China” (teased), put together by Red Star Press at the location formerly known […]
