bezt_medusa1

Bezt, one of the members of Polish dynamic duo, Etam Cru, just announced his new limited edition coming via Print Them All on Wednesday 17th of December. “Medusa” is a 16 color lithograph that the artist worked on at Idem studio in Paris, making it one of the most challenging prints ever coming out of this historic place.

The fine art edition is featuring iconic image of Medusa, a mythological creature that turns people to stone with her look and has poisonous snakes for hair. Bezt did a bit of a twist to the familiar image, made her look more contemporary, and added a familiar beanie covering the bright colored snakes. Using an interesting palette of over saturated colors, the finished edition carries all the elements of his signature style.

“Medusa” will be available on the 17th December at 2pm GMT at Print Them All website in a limited edition of 99 pieces. It is printed on BFK Rives 270g paper with hand decked edges,measuring 77.5 x 54.5 cm and comes signed and numbered by the artist.

Paul Insect – Allouche Gallery – Interview

Allouche Gallery, NYC, is pleased to present, PAUL INSECT: 2033, Original Works Created in 2014, on December 13th.

P1200322

Paul Insect is known for his unique and individual sharp-edged images, which draws from the absurdism of Dada and is combined with the sleekness of modernism, yielding surreal renderings that point playfully at the deep dark underbelly of adult life. In the 1990s, Insect became known for his witty stencil and spray painted works, before transitioning to the gallery scene with color-drenched canvases, which teetered precariously between tradition and something far more messed up. Never before has chaos been channeled in such clean lines.

Beau Stanton – Elegant Decay

Combining unshakably meticulous imagery alongside flawless displays of colour and deep, brooding themes of industrialism, religion and decay is a tall order for any artist. Yet Beau Stanton, with a tweak of his facial hair and ream after ream of recorded patterns and shapes, carries it off very well indeed. In light of his recent work with 1xRun, his muralism and solo show, Tenebras Lux, VNA got talking to Stanton in an exclusive interview on religion, architecture and the humble moustache.

His colorful creations with loose edges are presented in form of acrylic and spray paint canvases, works on glass, sculptures and even embroidery.

Jameson Works x Wild Beasts

The Jameson Works is about sharing the stories behind modern craft, and spreading the knowledge of how great craftsmen work today. For our first project, Wild Beasts get together with Parisian illustrator and animator Mattis Dovier to create a GIF-novel.

Mattis worked on the visuals for the GIF-novel, which will be accompanied by two unreleased Wild Beasts tracks. This is the story behind their making – creating GIFs and remixing the tracks ‘Soft Future’ and ‘Blood Knowledge’, which Wild Beasts have taken apart and reformed into a soundtrack. The guys will show that it’s not just what you make, it’s how you make it.

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.
