Lister in Miami

We caught up with Aussie artist Anthony Lister back in Miami ahead of his show at Lazarides Rathbone, entitled Hurt People, Hurt People. Love or hate this loose cannon of creativity, he always has some interesting things to say about society at large. We chat about his arrest in Brisbane, freedom of visual speech and the World’s Longest Suicide Attempt.

Recommended Shows & Exhibitions

This week we are spoilt for choice with exhibitions, a delicious melting pot of styles, cultures and approaches! Here are our top picks for the week..

Cranio – Lost in London

Anyone who has walked the streets of London in the last few weeks will have been pleasantly surprised to see an army of blue Amazonian characters taking over our walls. Cranio is from Sao Paulo, Brazil and has come over to London to see how his indigenous men will be perceived by us, as he paints light hearted pieces with deeper underlying questions oabout consumerism, identity, corruption and the environment. He explains: “I want to show things that are happening with the indigenous people living in Brazil. Some of them are trying to adapt; others have adapted really well to capitalism; others are trying to sell the Brazilian rainforest to grab some money and a cool iPhone.”

The exhibition itself opens at Red Bull Studios, Tooley St tomorrow night, 15th and runs until Monday 19th.


Louis Masai – AfroFabRicatiOn

We’ve been a fan of Louis’ beautiful large-scale personified animals for a while now and can’t wait to see what his solo show has in store. Louis has an incredible love and respect for nature and his place in the world and that passion shines through in his work. His work currently focuses on African fabric patterns and animals, this concept has crept seamlessly into this exciting new collection in the form of the Pencil Case Thieves.

Expect taxidermy and reclaimed materials galore among other things. This promises to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It opens tomorrow night, 15th at Nancy Victor Gallery, Charlotte Place, W1T 1SG and runs until 7th December. RSVP ruthpenfold@me.com to attend the opening night.

Check out this video of Louis talking about his work, shot by Tee Byford.
