After showing at Lisbon’s Electricity Museum / EDP Foundation (covered) and in Paris (covered) over the last year, multidisciplinary Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils returned to London for a new solo entitled Dissonance at Lazarides Rathbone. Running until April 23rd, the exhibition reflects on how various factors in the contemporary urbanized world shapes its inhabitants, while personal identities are vanishing under the visual noise and surrounding clutter.

Graffiti writer, painter and illustrator, HuskMitNavn, is opening his solo show, entitled Morning, with the V1 gallery in Copenhagen on March 27th. Known for his witty comic-like work, often ridiculing and commenting on everyday situations, the Danish artist created a whole show themed around mornings and morning rituals.
