On Saturday, 23rd of August, Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC will be closing their group show Cruel Summer that opened 2 weeks ago. Curated by collector, graffiti historian and urban anthropologist Roger Gastman, the show is presenting works by a very diverse artists from around the world. Even all of them coming from the graffiti/urban art background, their fine art works are significantly different in every aspect. From mediums used, to formats, themes and overall feel and looks. From abstract and conceptual, to flat and pop art ones, to comic or tattoo like ones, this exhibition shows the various way that graffiti or urban art can evolve into when entering contemporary art sphere.

The show features over 20 artists from USA, Brazil, Australia, France, Denmark, etc, including Rime (header image), Cope2, Horfe, HuskMitNavn, DabsMyla, Pose, Maya Hayuk, Blade, Revok, Caleb Neelon, Cleon Peterson, Rime, Finok, Shepard Fairey and more. With some of them being basically institutions in the urban art world, and others being hot new names, this variegated show is a must see.

Last week saw the opening of Danish artist HuskMitNavn‘s show ‘One of These Days’ at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen featuring a whole new body of work which explored his poetic, banal, tragic, personal and humorous impressions of every day life. The show runs until February 16th so be sure to check it out if you’re in the area.

VNA friend Henrik Haven was lucky enough to visit the show and sent over these snaps; it was a hard job whittling them down and choosing our favourites to show you but more images can be found here.
