Showing: Andy Rementer – “The Age Of Innocence” @ Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea

Andy Rementer is currently taking part in a double personal exhibition with Fulvia Mendini at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan. The artists joined forces through similar aesthetics of simplified, polished presentation, use of bright colors, and the nostalgia of illustrated children’s stories. Strongly influenced by Milan and its vibe, Rementer produced a body of work that depicts the daily life, routines and the people he met or saw around town. His visual language has been developed through the years from working  as an illustrator and cartoonist for newspapers such […]

Jonathan Yeo Portrait Of Kevin Spacey For “House Of Cards” // National Portrait Gallery

At the end of last month, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. unveiled a portrait of actor Kevin Spacey painted by Jonathan Yeo that will be on view through October. The event featured an appearance by Yeo as well as Spacey in character as Frank Underwood in his role for Netflix’s hit series House of Cards, marking the first time a fictional president had a painting of them hung in the portrait gallery of the institution (although not in the hall of real presidential portraits). The work continues a […]

Damien Hirst – “Pharmacy 2” Restaurant

After collaborating with restaurants in the past by incorporating his artwork into the decor, Damien Hirst has taken things to a whole new level. A new eatery was open last month by the British artist (in partnership with Mark Hix) at the Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhall, London. During the day, the restaurant serves visitors of the ongoing exhibitions while at night, it feeds diners when the gallery is closed. Pharmacy 2 is obviously named after the series of works Hirst has created over the years based on his fascinations with […]

Recap: Vincent Van Gogh Flower Parade (Netherlands)

If you are the birthplace of Vincent Van Gogh, you are allowed to commemorate the 125th anniversary of his death in style. Zundert, a small town in the Netherlands near the Belgian border dedicated their annual celebration, the world’s largest volunteer-run flower parade to the influential Dutch post-Impressionist painter.

Installation / Videos: Pejac – “Heavy Sea”

We’ve seen Pejac paint large indoor murals, small street pieces, window drawings, install sculptural works in public, create visual illusions on facades and walls, but we never seen him turn his paintings into reality. Until now. The Spanish artist just shared his latest project, Heavy Sea, titled after his watercolor painting from a few years ago depicting a lifesaving ring on top a tire dump. Recently, he came across a location that looked pretty much exactly like the one he drew, so he decided to re-create the image in […]

Kickstarter: Painted Oceans

Yesterday, Tristan Eaton revealed a project he has been working on getting started for the past five years – a plan to paint the Red Sands Sea Forts off the coast of the UK along with Shepard Fairey, Futura, How & Nosm, and The London Police. Although the proposal does have its naysayers who bring up some valid points, the ultimate goal is to bring enough attention to these historic structures built during World War II thereby generating enough money to hopefully preserve these for […]
