Horfee’s “Traditional Occupations” solo show

horfee01

Notorious French artist Horfee opened a solo show @ Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne on Friday 5th of December. The artist who has both formal artistic education, but is most know for his illegal graffiti works, gave a good overview of his current works through “Traditional Occupations”.

Inspired by everything from European abstract painting to homemade tattoos, vintage animations and underground comics, Horfee is no stranger to using various medias and techniques for creating recognizable works. His colorful creations with loose edges are presented in form of acrylic and spray paint canvases, works on glass, sculptures and even embroidery. Through his work Horfee proudly shows the flaws of his techniques by creating melting imagery that is conforming to anything but ordinary or traditional.

Herakut “Flaw Circus” @ Ruttkowski;68

herakut1

Jasmin Siddiqui and Falk Lehmann, or Hera and Akut, the members of internationally known artist duo known as Herakut, are opening their solo show @ Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne on August 29th. Through 10 years of collaborating on both large, outdoor murals and indoor exhibitions, they created a recognizable style which they’ve been known for. Strongly influenced by graffiti and street art, their unique signature style is famous for its melancholy and gratification. By mixing raw, expressive brush/line work, with realistic elements, along with text and messages, their new work kept the signature poetic and emotive feel. Using pastel, dimmed colors, they achieve more direct and honest impact as well as vintage feel to their work.

James Reka – Untold

James Reka is a young contemporary Australian artist based in Berlin, Germany. His origins lie in the alleyways and train lines of Melbourne’s inner-suburbs where he spent over a decade refining his now-emblematic aesthetic. His character work has come to represent the beginnings of a new style of street art: clean, unique and not necessarily on the street (much to his mother’s joy).  With an amazing show opening tomorrow night (6 June) at Backwoods Gallery, Reka took time to talk to Damo.

Snik, Now and Next

Britain’s beloved stencil duo Snik struck Brick Lane last month with a triptych of stencils from Marc Laroche’s haunting photo-series, “hair”. The copper clad portraits can be caught on Hanbury Street in the beating heart of the London Shoreditch area.

So VNA’s Jodie got chatting with Nik, one half of the prolific double act, during a rare quiet moment nestled in a packed schedule of exhibitions, printmaking and painting, to try to find out a bit about what the past, present and future holds for the hardworking pair.
