We nipped over to Brick Lane this weekend to check out the new show at the Stolen Space gallery, Never Judge…? The show features a hundred book cover designs by a huge variety of artists, many of them more usually associated with the street art scene. Each artist was invited to create a one-off artwork […]
We nipped across to Trafalgar Square last night to check out Outrace, one of the centrepieces of this year’s London Design Festival. Outrace is a large scale installation of eight industrial robots (on loan from Audi), each of which has a powerful LED head attached to the end of its arm. If you log on […]
So the kids over at the mayor’s office have unveiled the ‘iconic final design’ for the new Routemaster buses (here’s their press release on it, and another page with some video and pictures). Back in December, it was announced that the design competition for the bus had been won by two teams: a collaborative team […]
Looks like that Banksy fellow’s got a Summer Show lined up, opening this Saturday, 13 June. The kids over at Vandalog suggest that it might be in Bristol. Stay tuned for more news.
After we recently posted about Swifty, Ken Tan from the urban art online store Project Midas (based in Singapore) got in touch to tell us about the new exhibition of Swifty’s work they’re hosting at the No Vacancy gallery in Melbourne. Ken revealed that the show will feature original work, as well as […]
Swifty (you might know him from the MoWax logo, or perhaps the stuff he did on Straight No Chaser magazine) has just done up his website, and has got a selection of tasty bits and bobs there: some prints, some fonts, some shots of his street-art playtime. All worth a shufty.
How yummy is this? A life-size wireframe model of a Lamborghini Countach. In flouro orange. We caught sight of it on Saturday over at The Classic Car Club on Old St. It’s the work of artist Benedict Radcliffe, and you can read more about it on this Jalopnik post. Vrmmmmmm.
Hmmm. Wonder if this will be insanely busy, or just ridiculously busy? The folks at Pictures on Walls – they’re the go-to-guys for Banksy’s work, and put on Santa’s Ghetto each year – are having an open-weekend at their print studio in Shoreditch. They’re having a lottery where four people will win an […]
We made our way across to Cordy House on Curtain Road on Friday evening to catch first show in the new Behind the Shutters gallery that’s just opened on the site. And as first shows go, it’s a belter. Mutate Britain is hosted by the Mutoid Waste Company – you might have caught their […]
If you were out and about between dusk last Friday and dawn on the Saturday morning, you might well have noticed some folk scouring the streets with a hungry look in their eye. Or perhaps you caught sight of the source of that look, one of the 1,000 screenprints that Adam Neate (and his teams […]
While we were out in Amsterdam, we came across the work of Canadian stencil artist Roadsworth (Peter Gibson), and really liked it, so we thought we’d share. He’s been doing his thing since 2001, using stencils to adapt the existing road graphics, mainly on the streets of Montreal, initially as a protest against the […]
If you use ffffound.com, you’ll recognise the shot above, which is the work of paste-up supremo JR; and if you live in London, you will probably have seen more of his stuff adorning walls across town last June, including a huge shot of actor / film-maker Ladj Ly on the outside of the Tate […]
We scooted over to the Black Rat Press on Rivington Street last night to check out the latest show from D*Face, aPoPcalypse Now. It’s a fantastic show, featuring a few site specific installations, and a host of new canvases based on Spiderman and Superman comics, all D*Faced. The entire show had pretty much sold (since […]
One of our favourite contemporary artists, Paul Insect, has a new site-specific show, Poison, opening at a former bath house somewhere in the Kings Cross area of London on 12 September. The show will feature “twelve skeletal bunny girl sculptures” (that’s Miss August pictured above), and a series of new paintings and prints. The exact location […]
We made our way up the road to Waterloo on Saturday to check out the new work on display at the fantastic Cans Festival. The street-art show began back in May this year, set up by Blank Expression, turning a disused railway tunnel underneath the old Eurostar terminal into an open air exhibition space for […]
