Brandalism – Black Friday Ad Takeover – Paris COP21

Over 600 artworks critiquing the corporate takeover of the COP21 climate talks were installed in advertising spaces across Paris last night – ahead of the United Nations summit beginning this Monday.

Amidst the French state of emergency banning all public gatherings following the terrorist attacks on 13 November in Paris, the Brandalism project has worked with Parisians to insert unauthorised artworks across the city that aim to highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change.

Robert Proch is opening “545 Days” solo show in Paris

robert_proch1

Robert Proch is returning to Paris with another solo exhibition showing for one week only @ Openspace gallery. From May 23rd Polish artist will be showing “545 Days”, his second solo show with the gallery.
After the success of “Turn the Corner” almost 2 years ago, Proch is back with his probably most important show to date. On a personal level the exhibition marks the period between the birth of his first child and the opening of the show (545 days). Career wise, this large exhibition will include forty works on canvas and paper, that will be displayed in 600 m2 space of the Bastille Design Center. With this body of work the artist is continuing his works that are balancing halfway between abstraction and figuration, using warmer colors and harmonious compositions showing personal moments from his new family life. His seemingly unfinished visual language that is based on deconstruction and defragmentation, is pushing the observer to create his own story and complete the image with his own vision. Along with the show, the gallery will be releasing a limited edition lithograph that the artist recently produced with Print Them All studio.

Unwell Bunny – ‘Subtuition’ – Interview

Ed_mg_4559 copy

Damo: Who is Unwell Bunny? Can you talk us through your distinctive style?

UB: Unwell Bunny is the artistic alter ego of Ed Bechervaise, and an energetic free flowing artistic philosophy which is always evolving. The style I’d describe as hyper subversive urban pop, its a fluid clash of borrowed images, graffiti, and emotional narrative. Its full of energy and iconography and is a commentary on the time we live in.

Ella & Pitr Showing “See You Soon Like the Moon” in Paris

ella_pitr01

Ella & Pitr are currently showing “See You Soon Like the Moon”, their first Paris solo show with Galerie La Feuvre. After creating worldwide series of enormous large public works by painting grounds, rooftops, car parks, school yards, or drawing in the sand, snow or in the fields, the art duo wanted to introduce their studio works to the general public.
Significantly different when it comes to physical borders of the work surface, ability to see and control the progress and detail of their work, these canvas and paper works are a great representation of their dreamy, fairy tale-like imagery. In the same matter their giants, fallen angels or mythical creatures are enclosed by the walls of a building, borders of a playground, same happens with the studio works. While this concept gives weight and power to their works and makes images look big, it also gives it emotive tone by giving the impression that the walls, limits and borders keep their creations trapped inside.
The show opened on the 15th of January and will be on view until 14th of February.
