Drew Leshko’s Tiny Decay

western-saving-fund-society_web

I first encountered Drew Leshko’s work at SCOPE Art Fair in Miami…two maybe three winters ago.  Steadily and without fail, I’ve become a bigger and bigger fan of his 1:12 classic dollhouse scale models of  gritty urban landscapes and worn travel vehicles.

On Friday October 28th,  Andenken and Makerversity Amsterdam are hosting Drew’s first solo exhibition in Europe ‘Heaven is Whenever’  .  I caught up with Drew in advance of the show.

Thiago Toes @ Polo Design Show, Pavilion Vera Cruz

thiago_toes01

Thiago Toes is a Brazilian artist who stepped up into the world of fine art after years of being an active graffiti writer in Sao Paolo. As a member of the legendary Vlok crew together with Finok, Nunca, Ise, Vino, Remio, Os Gemeos, and many others, Thiago brushed up his style and skills that he is these days using on canvas and murals.

Recently he participated in the fourth edition of Polo Design Show in the Pavilion Vera Cruz, São Bernardo do Campo, at Polo Design Center, collaborating with the architect Gisele Pacheco. For this installation they created a more elaborate, living concept of the traditional “white cube” style gallery space. With a tree in the center of the space that flourish white cubes to the ceiling, characteristic scent, and a custom sound system, this installation presents the artwork by triggering all the senses. Other than painting the walls and floors of the install, the artist showcased his recent canvas works as well as his latest limited edition print.
