Last week and last chance to check out the summer group show at Stolenspace gallery in London.
StolenSpace Gallery is delighted to present, ‘Wish You Were Here’, an eclectic showcase featuring original works from 40 leading urban contemporary artists.
Prompted with the prototypical postcard sentiment, each artist reimagines the phrase and translates it into their own visual language – setting their work in conversation with the many other creative minds featured in the show. Whereas some choose to uphold the typical associations of travel and summer vacation, others select less conventional interpretations, such as unrequited love, detachment and separation. The result of this variation offers a genuine overview of the vast and consistently increasing diversity of urban artists working cross the globe today – a diversity with StolenSpace is honoured to represent.
Featuring work by; Adam Caldwell, Alexander Chappell, Alexis Diaz, Augustine Kofie, Beau Stanton, Ben Frost, Buff Monster, Case Maclaim, C215, D*Face, David Bray, Drew Leshko, Erik Jones, Florence Blanchard, Herakut, Jaime Molina, Jason Woodside, Josie Morway, Kai and Sunny, Kevin Cyr, Mando Marie, Miss Van, Mysterious Al, Nic Bowers, Okuda, Paul Stephenson, PICHIAVO, Pref, RYCA, Remi Rough, Seth Armstrong, Shepard Fairey, Sylvia Ji, The London Police, The Lost Object, Von, Vinnie Nylon, Will Barras, Zest
Later this month I’ll be showing work with Stolenspace gallery at URVANITY art fair. I just finished a brand new 100 x 150cm painting titled ANAPHASE, which I’m very excited about. Acrylic and gold leaf on canvas, ANAPHASE represents one of the several stereotypical phases of cell division. For more information please contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org
Really excited to be part of this exhibition, which is opening this week at Saatchi gallery in London. For this occasion I prepared a few new paintings I’m super pleased with. Please message me if you’d like to attend the private view this Thursday.
Altered States showcases works by eight urban contemporary artists based in the UK. The artists featured in Altered States are: D.A.N.T.E., David Shillinglaw, Florence Blanchard, Kid Acne, Lily Mixe, Skeleton Cardboard, Sr.X and Victoria Villasana. The exhibition has been curated by Olly Walker.
By its nature art concerns transition and transformation. Ideas and emotions transform from impulses to physical images. Substances are transformed when rendered on surfaces, liquids become solids and colours merge. Similarly, artists find themselves living within a society that is constantly changing and presenting them with new challenges and opportunities.
The UK is home to a community of diverse artists. Some were borne in the UK and others were drawn to it; but all continue to explore artistic ideas as the nation evolves. Altered States showcases the output of a selection of British-based urban contemporary artists working today.
I am part of this exhibition which will start tomorrow in London at Hoxton Gallery. This project is curated by The Qabinet and is about collaboration and includes artwork produced in the exquisite corpse fashion.
I just finished a piece for the Wu Tang Is For The Children exhibition which starts next week in Shoreditch:
