Showing: Josh Sperling – “Two Purple Tigers” @ Perrotin (Seoul)

For his first showing in Asia that is on view through the end of the year, Josh Sperling has unveiled a selection of his signature geometric forms executed on a series of shaped canvases. Entitled Two Purple Tigers, the exhibition from the American artist at Perrotin Gallery’s Seoul branch explores the sculptural potential of painting. Drawing from influences that range from Googie-style signs to the Memphis furniture trend of the 1980s to Keith Haring’s figures, the bold angular shapes and sinuous curves of the upstate New York-based artist intrigues […]

Streets: Banksy – “Season’s Greeting” (Port Talbot, Wales)

Making a statement during the holiday season in his own unique way, Banksy has created a new piece in  South Wales. Featuring a boy enjoying what appear to be snowflakes while trying to catch some on his tongue, the mural turns dark when you look around the corner and realize it’s actually ash from a burning dumpster, not snow. Surely a commentary on Port Talbot (ne of the most polluted areas in the UK) where the piece is located, a video (seen below) from the […]

Seven oil paintings and an installation are on display upstairs, three of them massive paintings of the same scene from different cinematographic angles. The Los Angeles-based artist further explains – “In a way, this is a one-woman pagan uprising. It’s part- spiritual-epiphany, part-mental-breakdown. Her self-styled shamanism incorporates culture of the time but is also influenced by various tenets of historical ritualistic […]
