Coming up on May 7th, Travis Louie’s (interviewed) will be returning to Seattle (also see 2013) for another showing with Roq La Rue entitled Archive of Lost Species. If this piece seen here, Oscar and the Giant Tarsier, which will be in the show is any indication, fans in Seattle of his imaginary creatures and vintage photography-like renderings will be in for a treat. Take a look at the accompanying narrative, something that accompanies each of the New York-based artist’s paintings – “Oscar Pennington was a naturalist and […]

On March 27, David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech will continue their program of introducing relevant international urban artists to the Morroco with a solo exhibition OFF/GRID by Augustine Kofie (featured). For this show, LA-based artist will collaborate with local craftsmen to produce “work that merges established Moroccan artistic traditions with his own brand of American contemporary expression.” The title of the show refers to the features that his work have been known for – the juxtaposition and the synthesis of styles, tones and shapes, and the tension between these visual elements. While seemingly very strict […]
On March 27th (private view on the 26th), Lazarides Rathbone will be opening a new solo from the Lisbon-based Vhils (filmed), his first there since 2012. Creating pieces with his special form of mark-making that mirrors his techniques on the streets, the artist otherwise known as Alexandre Farto will be presenting new compositions comprised of wood, billboard, metal and Styrofoam dioramas. Thematically based on the dilution of personal identity due to the oversaturation of by the realities of today’s society – profuse visual stimuli, mass media, […]
On March 28th, Thinkspace will be hosting a new solo from painter Erik Jones entitled Color | Full. As evidenced by his previous works, the NYC-based artist likes to combine his portraiture with graphic patterning, color blocking, and linear elements but this latest showing will take things a bit further. Along with some paintings created in the classic Jones style, there are also more exploratory pieces where he has delineated different planes in his imagery by bringing a sculptural aspect or dimensionality to his work.
Pixel Pancho just launched his first solo exhibition in London at StolenSpace entitled Memory of Life. The Italian artist has transformed the gallery space with installations featuring surreal robotic characters using pieces of furniture & musical boxes while also created some sculptures with moving mechanisms, including Michelone, an edition of 10 handmade and articulated robots. The new body of work includes acrylic and pencil on wood pieces that showcase robotic figures that explore the circle of life, from the moment they grow while also making and […]

Tonight in Istanbul, Robert Montgomery will be opening his first solo show in Turkey at the cultural hub situated in Galatasaray and Karaköy – ISTANBUL’74.

Also, grab a copy of Time Out Istanbul as there is a nice interview and feature on the London-based artist in the most recent issue. Montgomery further states – […]
About one year since his last show during Armory Week 2014 (covered), Know Hope is about to open a new solo, this time with Gordon Gallery in Tel Aviv, on March 26th. After intensively working on it for the past 6 months, Truth and Method is shaping up to be his largest solo exhibition in Israel to date. For this new exhibition, the Israeli street poet pushes his signature textual works to a whole new level through a series of triptychs created through an extensive and very […]
Later tonight (March 19th), Pedro Matos will be opening a self-titled solo in Miguel Justino Contemporary Art’s project room in Lisbon. Continuing his foray into abstraction, the new works are influenced by the urban landscape – the “ephemeral and decaying, the withered and downtrodden” – something that has been consistently an influence for the Portuguese artist since his early beginnings on the streets. Take a look at some more photos below… Discuss Pedro Matos here.
On March 28th, Narwhal Contemporary in Toronto will be hosting a new solo show from Souther Salazar entitled Attic Transmissions. The Portland-based artist’s work has always brought a smile to the face of fans of his whimsical work – with this new collection of paintings being no different. Salazar’s imagery has a “greater than sum of its parts” feel to it with a delightful complex and layered composition, but this fresh batch of work seems to have taken it to a new level with some collaged elements.
