Joe Rush – While The Iron Is Hot


Perhaps you didn’t know it, but chances are you’ve seen a Joe Rush sculpture before.
Maybe it was the rocket ship Usain Bolt rode through the Olympic Stadium at the Paralympics, or some mental creation thundering past you while you were off your tits at Glastonbury.


Joe makes his marvellous mechanical sculptures and vehicles from old waste metal and scrapyard junk, creating beautiful, utilitarian sculptures and Mad Max-style monsters that rumble through the streets and fields.

‘While the Iron is Hot’ is Joe’s premiere gallery exhibition, featuring sculptures specially conjured up for home-installation, to be loved and cherished for generations to come

The event takes place from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday 21st November 2014.

The exhibition is open to the public from 17th January to 15th February 2014. Gallery opening hours are 12–6pm, Tuesday to Saturday, and admission is free.



Saber – The Ugly American



US Artist, Saber, has created a new collection; The Ugly American.
In this showcase, he mixes spray paint, oils and charcoal to convey the all-encompassing power of America. With 22 years as a graffiti artist under his belt, with this latest body of work, Saber shows his crossover


“My gallery works have to be a beautiful painting. I want an average person who knows nothing about graffiti to say, ‘This is a beautiful painting’. That’s the most important thing to me.”

The show runs from the 10th Jan – 15th Feb at The Outsiders Gallery, London.


John Tsombikos (BORF) at Lazarides


Lazarides Rathbone is presenting a new solo exhibition by American artist John Tsombikos, formerly known as BORF. The exhibition opens with a private view tonight from 6pm and runs until 20th December.

Entitled BORF Show, the exhibition marks a monumental turning point in the artist’s career as he further develops and extends the cathartic project of his moniker, by which he popularly came to be known, to assume a new artistic identity.

For his inaugural exhibition under his birth name, Tsombikos continues to explore the work of his 20th century contemporary predecessors in an array of urban media types. Referencing masters of abstract expressionism, the artists pays tribute to Lucio Fontana, Christopher Wool, Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, Brice Marden, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell and Adolph Gottlieb. Themes of authority, control and power feature heavily in both the technique and content, commenting upon political and social frictions while presenting a progressive transition from graffiti into an unforgiving body of new work.

BORF Show showcases a new subtle and complex selection of works that reinvents abstract art, challenging the audience to look at what is traditionally the tool of a vandal in a different light.





The Lazarides team have put together their annual off-site exhibition, a sensory feast only suitable for the brave and forward thinking.

“BRUTAL explores the brutality of the times we live in, how this is reflected in the objects around us and our perception of the world. With a chilling new central London location for this year’s creative carnage, the roster of artists are set to produce their most brutal works to date, incorporating installation, sculpture and film bigger and bolder than ever before.”

Housed in an abandoned building on 180 The Strand, with work from Antony Micallef, Ben Woodeson, Brad Downey, Bill McRight, Cleon Peterson, Conor Harrington, DALeast, Doug Foster, Estevan Oriol, James Lavelle, Katrin Fridriks, Karim Zeriahen, Know Hope, Lucy McLauchlan, Mark Jenkins, Miaz Brothers, Pose, Robert Hylton, Sebastian Horsley and Todd James.

This is one not to miss and runs from 15th – 27th October, 12-9pm. You can book your place here. If you still need persuading check out these brilliant photos from www.wallkandy.net

Vhils – Devoid

Master of the urban landscape Vhils returns to London for a show at Lazarides Rathbone Place, entitled Devoid.

‘The artist’s latest body of work will focus on the individual in relation to the overpowering force of urban environments. Working with the city as the prime material, Vhils has used what the urban environment offers in its most derelict spaces as both a location and as a source for materials from wood scraps to rusty metal, discarded billboards and other debris produced by its inhabitants.’

There is a private view 29th November and the show will then run until 17th January.
