Showing: DALeast – “Redok” @ The Outsiders (Newcastle)

On the 22nd of November, The Outsiders in Newcastle opened a solo by Chinese born artist DALeast (interviewed). For this show, the South Africa-based painter created six large canvases, as well as six matching pen on paper studies, a video installation, and an exclusive limited edition etching created at gallery’s print studio. The title of the show, REDOK, is the phonetic English spelling for a Tibetan expression of hope and fear, two emotions that rule lives. Stepping away from his previous practice of painting dynamic movement scenes, DAL instead presented […]

Releases / Previews: DALeast – “Redok” @ The Outsiders (Newcastle)

Capetown-based artist DALeast is opening a highly anticipated solo show with The Outsiders in Newcastle on the 22nd of November. The title of the show, Redok, comes from a Tibetan phrase meaning “hope and fear,” and represents the emotions the artist tries to show with his works. The main part of this coherent new body of work are six large scale acrylic on canvas pieces on tea stained backgrounds, created over many months. With the largest piece being 200cm tall, and the smallest around 120cm, these will be some […]

Previews: Mr Jago – ‘Piltdown Tactics’ @ The Outsiders

Tomorrow, Mr Jago brings his explosive graffiti-based palette to The Outsiders gallery space in Newcastle. Piltdown Tactics will feature Jago’s trademark riot of colour in the form of the large scale canvases he has become known for, also with some works on paper in the mix from the Bristol-based artist. His work takes the form of a graffiti inspired vision of action painting and infuses a healthy dose of abstract expressionism to create his loose but focussed, landscape compositions. The exhibition opens on Thursday 17th October and […]

Previews: Saber – “Ugly American” @ The Outsiders (Newcastle)

It looks like the next showing for SABER (interviewed) after his big exhibition in New York (covered) earlier this year will be at The Outsiders in Newcastle – opening to the public on September 6th. Entitled Ugly American, the American graffiti artist’s European solo debut will feature urban depictions of both the American flag and of the Union Jack.

Earlier this month, the street collective TrustoCorp made their debut outside of the USA with a showing at Newcastle-based Outsiders gallery entitled International Bank of TrustoCorp.

They state: “We’re exploring the power of money in our lives on a local and international level. From the high power gambling of Wall Street to the broken dreams of Main […]
