Openings: Dalek & Delta Exhibition @ Elms Lester

Last night, Elms Lester held a special private viewing as two top notch international artists visited the London gallery to show off their unique and contrasting geometric styles. The Dutch artist known as Delta (Boris Tellegen) showed off a diverse arsenal of new works (including sculptures, paintings and 3-D installation pieces) which depicted the complex layers and symmetry that we’ve come to expect from the graffiti artist. Dalek (James Marshall – interviewed) balanced out the show with this renowned “superflat” geometric colors and meticulous line-work. […]

Openings: Mode 2 – “Reality, Fantasy, And The Web” @ Lazarides (Newcastle)

Who can take a stack of hard cardboard or a cold brick wall and create a sensually hypnotic work of art? Mode 2 can. The artist known for his erotic urban techniques opened “Reality, Fantasy, And The Web” (previewed) at Lazarides last weekend. For a show that was created completely on location in the Newcastle gallery, it’s fascinating how Mode 2 was able to work with the gritty surroundings he was given and transform it into visually arresting and erotic snapshots. Check out all the images […]

Jeff Koons’ Diamond Lights Up Manhattan Skyline

What would you do if you had the money to get one of Jeff Koons’ famous “Diamond” sculptures? Where would you place it to get the most out of your new found bling? On the roof of your luxury penthouse? Apparently that’s exactly what hedge-fund mogul Richard Perry did. After buying the sculpture for 2.3 million dollars in 2005, he installed his flashy green diamond on the roof using a crane in 2007. That’s when the complaints started coming in. The 5ft tall (size of a buffalo) stainless steel metallic […]
