Ludo is releasing a new print

ludo0

One month after closing his London solo show, Ludo is releasing a new lithograph edition with Print Them All studio in Paris. Marking the end of the big project Chaos Theory that featured travels to Asia, Caribbean and all around Europe, as well as the successful show @ Lazarides, “344” will be available on Thursday, 11th of December.
The image for this fine art edition produced at Idem Studio in Paris, is first introduced in St Marteen back in August, showing a large butterfly with gun for a body. This creation is artist’s vision of the human influence on nature like most of his mutilated half mechanical animals and insects he’s been creating. The contrast between the fragility of the butterfly and lethalness of a gun is Ludo’s witty comment on the strength of the chaos theory and butterfly effect. The image was further elaborated for his show through a series of smaller canvases, and the one used for the print is fully hand drawn.
This lithograph is gonna be released in an edition of 99, and we’re told that some hand finished copies might be available at some point in the future.

Adrian Falkner aka Smash 137 new solo show and new print release

smash137_1

Swiss artist Adrian Falkner aka Smash 137 recently opened his solo show @ in Germany. Ex graffiti artist who entered the fine art world back in 2008, introduced the new body of work titled Neue Farbe. Staying true to his roots and strong influence of NYC wild style, Smash137 created an impressive series of heavily abstract works. With noticeable spraycan strokes, fat cap lines, and all the other elementary components of classic graffiti, these works still have an undeniable aesthetics of contemporary fine art abstract works.

Along with introducing his solo show, Basel-born artist recently finished working on his upcoming print release @ Idem Studio in Paris. Here is what Adrian says about the release:

It took me almost one year to find the right painting, which I wanted to use for my first Lithograph. Finally I chose this painting on paper because it’s closest in size and material. I preferred not to take a large painting and scale it down to the size of the Lithography. For me the lines loose a lot of strength and energy when they are put out of proportion.

Available through Print Them All, Steel Blue will be released in an edition of only 70 pieces on Wednesday, 3rd of December @ 2pm GMT.

Phlegm new piece and new limited edition etching

phlegm01

Phlegm recently finished making his long time coming DIY limited edition release – Fight or Flight (see the video bellow). The etching will be available very soon in an edition of 100 copies, and is produced using traditional techniques by the artist himself.

After finalizing this production that he was working on for a long time between his frequent travels, Sheffield-born artist took a much needed break and visited his home town. During one of his walks through the forest, he came across this abandoned farm house that seemed like a perfect setting for his work. So, inspired with the surrounding, he came up with a new character built of leaves and branches, named Green Man. Painted with his signature black and white colors, this solitary creature is standing out in his environment by holding up this lonely brick wall in the middle of the forest.

23rd Key – ‘Keezus’

Melbourne based 23rd Key’s solo show ‘Keezus’ opens next week at Juddy Roller in Melbourne. She took time with Damo to give us the low down on the show.

DW: Tell us more about your upcoming show at Juddy Roller. What is the concept behind it?

23rd Key: The concept behind the show is ‘ego’. I’ve tried to dissect the medium and showcase it in a way that I’ve never seen any one else do it before. It’s about what it is to be a stencil artist and the inner battle we have with who we are, who we are perceived to be, and how the two differ. I feel like there can be a real distance between the artist and the ‘audience’ when it comes to art and exhibitions. With Keezus, the theme is one that’s very close to home for me but I also wanted to do something really different with how things are displayed. I really want to bridge the gap with this show, hopefully anyone who comes to see it will walk away understanding a little bit more about stencil art and have seen it like it’s never been seen before.

01
Italian street artist RUN, is opening a unique exhibition and sculptural installation on 27th November 2014 @ Howard Griffin Gallery in London. Exhibiting for the first time under his real name, Giacomo Bufarini introduces “Parabola Di G”, a semi-autobiographical story told through a unique series of highly detailed pen and ink drawings that collectively make up a book.

The book follows the life journey of semi-fictional character, G, and explores ideas of imagination and creativity by showing important metaphorical moments from his life. The surreal story line is fully applicable to modern life, and it’s inspired by Giacomo’s personal experiences from his early days of creating street art on the streets of Bologna and Florence in the 90s, through meeting other cultures during world wide travels, to his current life and studio work in London.  This landmark exhibition for the artist is a unique opportunity to see the original drawings of the book presented in a complex and site specific installation, as well as a first major show of the renewed artist.

Galeria Javier Lopez opening Phil Frost’s “Intuitive Mathematics”

PHFR0

New York-based artist Phil Frost is opening his upcoming solo show with Galeria Javier Lopez in Madrid on 26th of November 2014. Being his first solo show with the gallery, as well as first in Europe, we’re very excited to see the works that legendary artist created for this event.

Frost became famous for his street installations around NYC back in 90s. He would find a perfect location, take measures of the place, and than carefully create work in his studio before placing and leaving them in public. Usually painting on panels this is where he shaped up his recognizable imagery that he’s been famous for. Though flat and intuitive at first, his complex works have a lot of depth he achieves with layering numerous coats of paint with his iconic forms and imagery. Mixing different mediums, different techniques and ways of applying and manipulating paint, his visual language consists of unique typography as well as repetitive mask-like shapes that float over bright colored background. “Intuitive Mathematics” will stay on view until 4th of February.
