‘Between The Lines’ is an all new urban contemporary group show at The Mine, Dubai, curated by Rom Levy, featuring Andrew Schoultz, Kenton Parker, RETNA, Andrew Faris, Paul Insect, BAST, eL Seed, Jenny Sharaf and Word to Mother.
Ten Hail Mary’s by Joe Holbrook opens on Friday 29th April.
Joe Holbrook displays his new works which are the reflection of people and the sinister aspects of young adult life. These characters, attitudes, and the immediate surroundings of his social life are seen through his own young eyes. He feels it’s necessary and dutiful to document and translate his generation, capturing and telling the story of his peers as he sees and experiences it.
With a laid-back approach to subjects and activities that are often frowned upon, Holbrook is not shy in creating a piece that audiences may not see as beautiful. His work is much deeper than just an image portraying contrasting and hypercritical personalities; it is not meant to be understood instantly. Holbrook’s work is shrouded in secrecy, often cropped in a unique, snapshot way to only tell part of a story. This gives viewers a taste of what’s going on, but not enough to feel fully satisfied; and at the same time not enough to be completely disappointed. This leaves a hunger and frustration, a desire for more and a feeling of mentally standing on your toes, hoping to glimpse the whole picture and bigger story through a crack in the artist’s door.
This will be the first showcase of Joe Holbrooks work in London, for 8 years. He will be presenting a curated selection of oil paintings from the past year, as well as the release of two limited prints and a exclusive signed, numbered zine.
“This is a private event, with no representatives nor gallerists involved. I want to give collectors of my work the opportunity to purchase straight the artist, no fees, no drivel.” Joe Holbrook
A map will be posted on the Friday afternoon on Instagram so you can find the location of the show, with the show opening Friday 29th 7-10pm and the consecutive Sat/Sun from 1-5pm.
Postcode will be E1 5LJ, UK.
Beginning his journey as a conventional artist in 1999, James Reka – aka RekaOne – is an Australian-born artist, currently living in Berlin. In September 2015, the Parisians familiar with the M.U.R. on Oberkampf Street saw him working on site and discovered his colorful world. That summer, he also produced a 30-meter-high mural painting, in the 13th District of Paris, which can even be seen from the Périphérique.
Finally we have some images to share with you of the amazing new art festival in Ostend, Belgium, The Crystal Ship. Get your peepers round these!

(subtitles for those wot don’t speak nuffink uvver than Inglish)
as part of the Late Shows programming which channels over 10,000 people around the cities cultures traps, galleries, and museums. It’s this engine upon which we build ‘The Saint’. A dedicated body of work within the iconic landmark that is St Nicholas’ Cathedral here in the centre of Newcastle. We are presenting a hand full of our favourite artists, original work, selected pieces from our archive and commissioned photography. With specifically constructed scaffolding we will rig the work with bespoke lighting to great affect. Accompanying the beautiful works on display will be a line-up of specifically curated local music makers, live acoustic sets, and angelic additions.
The space is truly magical, so many break off areas, nooks, and crannies.
