HUMBLE & EPIC – Ben Gregor

Herrick Gallery is proud to present HUMBLE & EPIC, an exhibition featuring new artwork by London-based filmmaker Ben Gregor, opening on the 2nd December. HUMBLE & EPIC is a tribute to the steadfastness of inspiration, love and friendship in a fractured and passing world of modern love.

Ben Gregor & boards

Using 65 maple wood skateboards as his canvas, Gregor has laser etched each board with the names of his closest friends, family and heroes. Solid, three dimensional and practical, each board is meaningful and unique. Each board’s individuality is reflected also in the unique markings and patterns of the maple wood.

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.

INSA – Abrantes – 180 Creative Camp

Canal180, in partnership with VNA, recently produced a documentary with INSA to document their event in Abrantes, Portugal, earlier in the summer.

During 5 hot days, INSA painted several layers in stages (which were later transformed into a digital GIF as part of his ongoing ‘Gif-iti project), at the historical centre of Abrantes, for the 180 Creative Camp event.

INEVITABILITY is a genuine conversation where the artist speaks about his roots, his message and his personal approach about the meaning of art in our lives.




Spencer Keeton Cunningham, Erlin Geffrard, Daisy Ortiz and Jaque Fragua recently opened their latest show ‘ARCHETYPE$’ in San Jose.

Erlin Geffrard Interviews Spencer Keeton Cunningham about the show:

Erlin Geffrard: Tell me a little about this show…

Spencer Keeton Cunningham: Basically Erlin, as you know, You and I have been making paintings together and video works which we call video paintings since around 2007. Sometimes it’s hard for people to even tell us apart within the art world. That’s part of what we have been attempting to show in our art since we first met way back around 8 or 9 years ago. And Jaque Fragua has been a fellow art collaborator and friend ever since we started doing shows together in San Francisco around 2008. This show is a culmination of works both solo and collaborative both on video and canvas between all of us.

The Jaunt – AKACorleone – Interview

Portuguese artist AKACorleone is the next artist to join The Jaunt, the art and travel project that sends artists all over the world to find inspiration. Artists who have participated in the project previously include Mike Perry, Niels Shoe Meulman, Cleon Peterson, Hedof, Collin van der Sluijs, and many, many others. For AKACorleone’s trip we are traveling to Catania, on the beautiful island of Sicily, Italy. A place with it’s obvious mafia history, but also home of Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe. After AKACorleone comes home from his trip, he’ll visualize his new found inspiration into an artwork which will be produced as a limited edition screen print. This print is now for sale, at sight unseen, on the website of The Jaunt – www.thejaunt.net/trips. Make sure you order one of the prints before the trip starts, before you miss your chance!

We caught up with AKACorleone recently to get the lowdown before his Jaunt:

MEGGS – Paving Paradise

David ‘MEGGS’ Hooke’s latest body of work deals with the recurring aesthetic of duality, which is an ongoing and underlying theme in all of his artwork. His ‘Paving Paradise’ pop up show is a small glimpse into a new focus of his work and features split images depicting natural purity vs. things that represent the decay and downfall of our environmental resources and mankind as a whole. MEGGS intends that his artworks reflect the Yin and Yang, or that two halves make up a whole.
