Last night, Lazarides Rathbone in London opened their doors to the new solo show from Know Hope. The Abstract And The Very Real consisted of clusters of paintings and assemblages, often utilizing found objects, that collectively put forth the Tel Aviv-based artist’s ode to the human spirit, manifested in his signature characters, imagery, and motifs. The show runs through August 29th so stop by if you have a chance… Photo credit: Butterfly. Discuss Know Hope here. Discuss this show here.
With the private view scheduled for August 1st and the general opening on August 2nd, it’s about time we told you about Know Hope’s newest solo. After an exhibition in Los Angeles last year (covered), the Tel Aviv-based artist is taking another step in his career with a London showing entitled The Abstract And The Very Real at Lazarides Rathbone. The new body of work continues to explore the human condition series of assemblages, paintings, and a site specific installation featuring his signature characters and poetic […]
Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd. Over 400 individual works went into the postcard show with 200 artists providing postcard sized works. The work was hung on the walls in grids of 24 cards, each echoing the aspect ratio of the individual works themselves as each work was 6×4 inches. The variance of work encompassed photography […]
On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]
Last week, the Known Gallery in Los Angeles welcomed the Israel-based Know Hope in to display new works as well as create an installation for their showspace. Entitled The Weight, the new paintings and sculptural compositions touched on the subject of the burdens we have and how we manage them. Along with glimpses of his spindly characters, the poetic musings seen in his street work also made the trip over on minimalistic pieces on the side of the gallery. Take a look in the photos below… Discuss Know Hope here.
Tomorrow night (November 10th) at the Known Gallery, Know Hope will be opening his first solo show in Los Angeles since 2009 (covered). Entitled The Weight, the new body of work from the Israeli street artist explores various interpretations of what weighs down on us, how we got to being there, and how we manage the burdens that we bear through a series of paintings and installations. You can expect some of the imagery that has been a constant for him and his work like his spindly […]
Headlining our Streets: World Roundup this week is a rare extraterrestrial piece from Invader. After a failed attempt last month, he has finally lived up to namesake and invaded space with his tiled works. Launching from Miami, Florida where he is preparing for his next exhibition, the French street artist was able to send his imagery into orbit with a helium balloon fitted with a camera to document it (and GPS to retrieve it). Other murals to admire on earth this week include work from Inti – […]
Sheffiield-based street muralist Phlegm recently made a trip out to New York and it looks like he brought along instruments of his trade as he put up multiple murals in Manhattan at the Fulton housing project on West 17th. Featuring his intricate imagery, the pieces follow his characters as they handle enigmatic and complex contraptions and gadgets. On interest, he also added one of his creatures to an existing piece by Israeli street artist Know Hope leading to an interesting collaboration after the fact. For a […]
