The Jaunt – Remed

Traveling art project and screen print studio The Jaunt is inviting their 25th artist to take the road. This time inviting the French Spanish artist REMED for a trip to the Canary Islands, to one of the smallest islands called La Gomera. We caught up with REMED to talk about his trip, what he’s hoping to find and what he will bring with him. “I’ll bring the least to find the most.”.

The artists travel to a place they’ve never been to before, and create a print once they have returned from their trip. You can order your print for as little as 60€ but only at sight unseen before the trip takes place. Place your order in due time, usually these prints sell out quick!

Mysterious Al – It’s All Love

MYSTERIOUS

Still enjoying his life in Australia like some kind of extended Lads-On-Tour spraycation, Brit defector and ex-Finders Keepers aficionado Mysterious Al has steadily been upping his art game and these new abstracted monster collage pieces are peaker than the Peak District in the peak of summer. Peak on fleek. Or whatever the kids are saying these days…

Between Stopovers – Sophia Hirsch & Johannes Mundinger

A stopover can be an airport or a train station for example. A place vivid at certain times, but not containing any inhabitants in itself. We see a strong link between these places and commercialized urban spaces such as shopping malls, parking lots, office buildings. These urban spaces simply lack individiuality and seem to have no unique appearance or atmosphere, where its purpose is merely functional.
