Back in the 90s, Ron English and Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada were pioneering the street art movement (that was not even conceptualized) with their own private clan of “art fux,” modifying billboard, street signs with clever adverts. Once again, at this years Avant Garde Urbano they were making big things happen. English kept his cans shaking on his 30′x 20′ piece, utilizing every color in the palette that MTN so graciously had to offer, in the hot Tudela sun, while Rodriguez-Gerada was fresh off his wish project and hanging one of […]

The exhibition includes his imaginative ink drawings and grotesque sculptures, of which you can see more of below… Discuss John Casey here.

Coinciding with the Georgetown neighborhood art walk, Seattle gallery Length/Width/Height opened its doors to host an exhibition by Salt Lake City resident Kyle Jorgensen, titled Kinetic Theories. With a wonderful color palette, and some glitter as well, geometric patterns ebb and flow the same way our wants and needs evolve over time. Much like the depicted icebergs go through drastic and complete transformations throughout their existence, our own lives are paralleled with changes coming both from within, and from outside influences. Kinetic Theories can be seen until […]
Tomorrow, Mr Jago brings his explosive graffiti-based palette to The Outsiders gallery space in Newcastle. Piltdown Tactics will feature Jago’s trademark riot of colour in the form of the large scale canvases he has become known for, also with some works on paper in the mix from the Bristol-based artist. His work takes the form of a graffiti inspired vision of action painting and infuses a healthy dose of abstract expressionism to create his loose but focussed, landscape compositions. The exhibition opens on Thursday 17th October and […]

Pure Evil Gallery in London recently opened a solo show The Riot Series by Australian artist Jimmy C. Known among London urban and street art lovers through his murals that can be found scattered around the city, the artist introduced the series of works made during and after the London riots in 2011. Created with his recognizable “drip paintings” or “scribble paintings” technique, the large pieces show the strong elements and moments from those couple of hectic days on the street. The artist was directly […]
