Following her success in Paris and Shangai, French gallerist Magda Danysz recently launched a pop-up gallery space in London called the The London Project for a duration of 100 days. While the lower ground floor is dedicated to in-situ installations by international artists and evolving across the 100 days, the first floor is currently hosting an exhibition entitled MASTERS OF STREET ART with work from Banksy, Blek Le Rat, Futura, Jef Aerosol, JonOne, L’Atlas, Obey, Pure Evil, Remi Rough (pictured), Space Invader, Sten & Lex, West and Yz on display.

This weekend, Galerie Zimmerling & Jungfleisch brings a well balanced combination of graffiti roots and contemporary abstract art to Saarbrücken in Germany in the guise of group exhibition Ambiguity. Concentrating on four key proponents of the Graffuturism movement; Poesia, Augustine Kofie, Remi Rough and LX One – whose dimensional work is pictured above – the exhibition looks full of promise from some of the hardest working artists in their field. Repping the USA and Europe in equal measure, these four innovators use a dialect that has helped […]
886 Geary Gallery hosts a stellar line up of contemporary artists that have transitioned from graffiti artists into highly regarded fine artists, without compromising their heritage, tonight in the form of the Graffuturism 5 Year Anniversary Group Exhibition. The first in a planned series of exhibitions across the globe celebrating the success of an art blog that been the catalyst in fostering a genuine movement, this exhibition in San Francisco is curated by Graffuturism founder Poesia; who brings together a global selection of artists that have established […]
After finishing up their big mural project (covered), the Library Street Collective recently opened a group show featuring artwork from all the participating artists.

We’ve amassed quite the collection of books by London based graffiti dude / artist / muralist Remi Rough over time, and it looks like our shelves will be getting another addition pretty soon. #roughsketches is a 124 page book of blackbook drawings and sketches from 1996 to 2013, and it will be available in a limited edition of 100 numbered and signed copies, direct from Remi’s online store on Friday 11th October. Never publicly seen before, these sketches act as a historical document and they show the development of […]
We recently came across the Traffic Design Festival currently underway in Gdynia, Poland – in particular the wall that kicked off the street art event jammed out over a few days by Krakow based Nawer and Remi Rough, from London. The huge mural collaboration between the pair works well, with the architectural emphasis of the dividing lines created by Nawer sitting comfortably alongside Rough’s bold slabs of colour. The resultant piece is a strong showing of geometrically biased post / abstract graffiti. We have some pics courtesy of […]
Excuse My French opened at La Galerie Celal a couple of weeks back and features the work of Remi Rough and RCF1. The cross channel 2-person show brought together the London and Paris-based artists that have followed similar career trajectories over the last 20 years since first putting in their time on the streets. Local old guard Quik, Sharp, Ogre and Alex One made appearances to show support at the opening event. Whilst they speak different languages both verbally and visually, the pair used a complimentary colour […]
International art collective Agents of Change recently opened a group showing at David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech. Entitled Unfolding, the showing brought together Steve More, Derm, Carlos Mare, LX One, Remi Rough and Jaybo. The AoC cast is ever expanding and contains different styles of art brought in by the widely cast influences of the collective group. Unfolding focuses of just six of the whole twelve, and hones down on some of the more angular, geometrically inspired members of the collective. Painting, collage and sculpture combine within […]
There seems to be a whole lot of muralising going on around the Futurism 2.0 exhibition we previewed earlier this week with a host of out-of-town artists in London for the show (which opens on Thursday 27th September) such as Joker aka Jerry Inscoe from Transcend. Keep your eyes peeled for more action in the coming days. This collaboration between Joker, Shok-1 and Remi Rough works particularly well, and was completed over the last 2 days.
