Showing: James Jarvis – “Throw-ups” @ NANZUKA

Opening last week, Throw-ups at NANZUKA in Tokyo marks James Jarvis’ (interviewed) first solo showing in Japan in the last four years. The exhibition continues the British artist’s laser-cut wooden relief works that were last seen earlier this year in Paris (covered), but also features a wide range of techniques including new spray paintings, colored acrylic panels, a bronze sculptural work, and of course drawings.

Je Suis Paris

In the aftermath of the horrible attacks that happened on Friday 13th in Paris, the art community once again responded with what it does best – transferring the emotions and messages in an original visual form. Whether they are French or not, they all have some sort of special connection with the “capital of the arts.“ From Danish master of paper drawings and folds, Huskmitnavn (top photo), Paris-based Seth Globepainter who painted one of his kid characters writing Parisian motto “Fluctuat nec mergitur (Tossed but not sunk)”, to legendary mastermind behind the Obey […]
