In May, we shared with you the amazing takeover by JR (interviewed) at the famous Louvre in Paris where he pasted over the iconic pyramid using photographs of the surrounding structures. Looking at the right angle, it appeared that the pyramid in the main courtyard “disappears” from sight. Who better to collaborate with next in an inception-like project than with China’s disappearing man – Liu Bolin? With both the French and Chinese artist painted over, the two friends (see 2012 collaboration) blended in with the already camoflauged pyramid behind them. This intriguing […]

On Saturday night (June 25th), Josh Keyes (interviewed) will be opening a joint show with Eva Funderburgh entitled Overgrown at Archimedes Gallery in Cannon Beach. For fans of his work, the title immediately makes sense and the first few paintings that have been revealed certainly play on this theme. Also, starting at 10 am for those present at the gallery only, Keyes will make two new prints available – Return & L’apres-midi d’un faune (Afternoon of a Faun) – more details here.

As we previously reported, since May 26th, Die Kunstagentin gallery in Cologne, Germany has been hosting a solo by Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope. For this showcase, the Tel-Aviv-based artist created an all new body of work strongly influenced by the refugee crisis. The Truth, As Told In Our Mother Tongue includes a large installation where recurring bird characters are flying towards a hole in a barbed wire fence. Symbolizing the painful journey of people escaping the horrors of war, this large work is juxtaposed against a smaller sculptural piece. Placed in […]

Patrick Martinez’s recent works includes what he calls the Po-lice Misconduct Misprint series, a riff on the Pee Chee Folders of the ’70s and ’80s. The paintings evoke a feeling of nostalgia as we think back to our early school days but when examined closely, the viewer realizes that the Los Angeles-based artist has replaced the high school-age students engaged in sports or other activities with images of police brutality and portraits of victims we have all seen in the news. Some of these works have now been made available […]

After returning from an inspiring trip to Jordan (covered), Pejac spent the last couple days finalizing his upcoming print release, Wound. Showing an ice breaker leaving a bloody scar as it roams the frozen ocean, it’s one of the works by the Spanish artist that speaks to major environmental issues. Through a minimalist approach, using a limited color palette and lots of negative space to accent the message, Pejac created an emotive image that speaks volumes. Symbolizing the irreparable damage to the environment caused by human behavior, Wound is one of […]
