Preview: Seth – “Tribute 1996-2016” @ Galerie Géraldine Zberro

Two years since his last show with the gallery (covered) and a year since his last show in Paris (covered), Julien “Seth” Malland is opening a solo in his hometown with Galerie Géraldine Zberro. Titled Tribute 1996-2016, the show celebrates the first twenty years of actively painting in the street and pays tribute to those early days in the infamous Parisian graffiti scene. With roots deep inside a movement that was driven by the rebellious need to leave a mark in your surroundings, the French artist will look back on his very beginnings with this […]

Upcoming: Maya Hayuk – “Grow Room” @ Alice Gallery

On 3rd of March Maya Hayuk will be back at Alice Gallery in Brussels to open her third solo with the gallery – Grow Room. From the few preview images we’ve seen, the show will include more complex compositions from the Brooklyn-based artist. Through intricate patterns and lush colors, Hayuk creates paintings and murals that recall traditional Ukrainian crafts, airbrushed manicures, and mandalas. Both rebelliously psychedelic and strictly symmetric, her works balance between creating a visual illusion and reusing orthodox weaving patterns. The new pieces look to be further experimentations, […]

Painting, sculpture and photography collide with video installation in this healthy mix of practices, thematically linked by the collective experiences of our surroundings expressed through a variety of media.
