bezt_myfinbec01

Swiss winery FinBec recently introduced the first part of their annual MyFinBec project that combines wine making and urban art. For the 4th consecutive year they are commissioning artists to create artworks to be used on labels of their fine organic wine, and the first artist on this year’s roster is Bezt from Etam cru.

Polish muralists already participated in the event last year with 2 large works, and Bezt was the first one to create works for their new concept in 2015. This year the artists are painting canvas works as images that will be used on bottle labels along with producing a number of sketches on wood. These are available for purchase through MyFinBec official website and are coming with 2 bottles of this year’s wine, but also, will be on view and available @ Moniker art fair from October 15–18 at the Old Truman Brewery in London, as well as on shows that are planned through Europe at later date. After all the sketches are released, MyFinBec will introduce their next participating artists and the rumor is it’s another art duo, or part of it, that we’ll be seeing new and exclusive works from.

James Jarvis “No More Negative Space” Solo Show @ HHH Gallery in Tokyo

jj_hhh

London-born artist James Jarvis is having a solo show with HHH gallery in Tokyo. This new gallery was co-founded by Japanese artists Haroshi and Usugrow, and few other locals engaged in creative activities such as book-making, event planning, music-making and film making. After their inaugural special exhibition showing large Haroshi sculpture, “No More Negative Space” is their first official show.
The artist whose most famous character toy, Martin, has an iconic status in Japan, prepared a series of new drawings exclusively for this event. For the artist himself, drawings are “means of understanding the world rather than as an aesthetic construction for transcribing or recording an image”. In his drawings he is “trying to draw a character that has no ‘character’. A thing, an animate object, that is as generic, as unrepresentative of anything as possible.” Covering personal problems, everyday situation, philosophical questions as well as personal interests such as skateboarding, “No More Negative Space” includes series of works through which he is trying to understand the world, and the everyday phenomenons in it. The show is opening on April 25th and will be staying on view until May 31st, with an opening reception and live painting scheduled on April 26th.

Giacomo Bufarini a.k.a. RUN Introduces “Parabola Di G”

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.
