Openings: Shepard Fairey – “Sound & Vision” @ StolenSpace

Londoners have already seen evidence of Shepard Fairey’s (featured) presence on the streets, but tonight (October 19th), the StolenSpace Gallery will be putting a new body of work from the prominent American street artist on display entitled Sound and Vision. Shep’s first exhibition in London Town in five years will see him create art with one of his greatest inspirations in mind – music. Friend and collaborator Z-Trip will be on hand to supply the soundtrack to the artwork that will include mixed media works on canvas, screen prints (wood, metal, and paper), rubylith […]

Showing: Anish Kapoor @ Lisson Gallery

Currently at the two locations of the Lisson Gallery in London, Anish Kapoor has gathered a comprehensive collection of his recent works for a showing that will run through November 10th. Known for his brightly colored and large-scale mirror-like creations, the Indian-born British sculptor has chosen to also focus on another side of his repertoire for this exhibition with a selection of his earth works in varied compositions. Rounding things out nicely in Lisson’s sculpture yard is Intersection, a piece from Kapoor fabricated from steel that almost […]

Streets: Shepard Fairey (London)

As we mentioned last month, Shepard Fairey (featured) will be opening a show at the StolenSpace Gallery in London entitled Sound and Vision. Looks like he made an early trek across the pond to work on some large-scale public murals of his distinctive imagery including this new piece on Ebor Street in East London. Check some progress pics below… Photo credit: Hooked Blog. Discuss Shepard Fairey here.

Streets: Roid & SatOne (London)

After pointing out a great collaboration recently from REVOK and RIME in Detroit, we now bring your attention to another joint mural – this time from Roid and SatOne in London where the Munich-based artist was in town participating in the Futurism 2.0 show (also see the Joker, Shok-1 and Remi Rough wall). With EndoftheLine for providing the wallspace, SatOne brought his distinctive style and combined it nicely with local star Roid’s mastery of geometric forms… Via Graffuturism. Discuss SatOne here.

Streets: Joker / Shok-1 / Remi Rough (London)

There seems to be a whole lot of muralising going on around the Futurism 2.0 exhibition we previewed earlier this week with a host of out-of-town artists in London for the show (which opens on Thursday 27th September) such as Joker aka Jerry Inscoe from Transcend. Keep your eyes peeled for more action in the coming days. This collaboration between Joker, Shok-1 and Remi Rough works particularly well, and was completed over the last 2 days.

Showing: Adam Neate – “Dimensional Paintings & Editions” @ Elms Lester

Over the weekend, Elms Lesters hosted the opening for another solo (see 2011) from Adam Neate (interviewed) entitled Dimensional Paintings & Editions. The new body of work consisted of exactly that – his signature three-dimensionaly and richly textured paintings that pop right out of the wall and limited edition offerings. The almost sculptural quality of his pieces really need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. In some of the them, he was even able to include the cardboard his earlier work was associated with. Photo credit: Smart Hype. […]

Preview: Slinkachu – “Global Model Village” @ Andipa Gallery

Last month, we gave you a heads up on Slinkachu’s new show opening on September 27th at the Andipa Gallery in London. Now, take a look as we have gathered more preview images for Global Model Village, an exhibition featuring the street miniaturist’s installations from cities all over the world. An example of this is the piece above entitled Balancing Act that he placed at the Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, South Africa. The settlement is home to around 500,000 people and experiences many problems such as poverty, crime and a […]
