“Outside In” Opens (Stavanger, Norway)

Martyn Reed the affable bad boy from Norway curates this new show of urban and street artists who are equally at home tackling antiquated etching techniques, watercolors, drawing and oil painting as they are with a spraycan and marker.  Says the impresario “On July 1st we’ll be opening one of Scandinavia’s, and certainly Norway’s, largest exhibitions dedicated to street and urban art.”

Red Hot and Street: “Art in the Streets” Brings Fire to MOCA

brooklyn-street-art-banksy-jaime-rojo-moca-art-in-the-streets-huffpost-04-11-web-15Banksy’s Reliquary (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Yes, Banksy is here. The giant “Art in the Streets” show opening this weekend at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles gives a patch of real estate to the international man of mystery who has contributed greatly to the worldwide profile of this soon to be, maybe already, mainstream phenomenon known as street art. A smattering of his pranksterism is an absolute must for any show staking claim to the mantle of comprehensive survey and an excellent way to garner attention. But “Streets” gets it’s momentum by presenting a multi-torch colorful and explosive people’s history that began way before Banksy was born and likely will continue for a while after.

White Walls Gallery Presents: Eine “Greatest” (San Francisco, CA)

Eine
brooklyn-street-art-eine-white-walls-gallery-web
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 12, 2011 7-11pm

Exhibition on view through April 2, 2011

San Francisco, CA-White Walls gallery is pleased to present, ‘GREATEST’ a solo exhibition by London-based artist, Ben Flynn a.k.a. EINE. The opening reception for ‘GREATEST’ will be held on Saturday, March 12, 2011 from 7-11 PM. The exhibition will be on view from March 12, to April 2, 2011 and is free and open to the public.

‘GREATEST’ is an art exhibition by the artist, Ben EINE, that will utilize both gallery and public space as a two-tiered platform for the artist’s visual expression. EINE’S work is a large-scale study of the shape and structure of the 26 letters found in the modern English alphabet in varied typefaces, color configurations and word arrangements. In the public spaces of San Francisco, EINE will be painting each letter of the alphabet on various walls around the city. A further ten canvases of his work using spray paint, acrylic, and glitter will be on display at White Walls gallery.

In an effort to engage the community through the creation of public artwork, EINE will be painting the entire alphabet throughout the city of San Francisco over the course of several weeks on walls and shutters. This public execution of street art aims to offer viewers a more participatory role in the observation and evaluation of artistic creation. All members of the community from collectors and appreciators to first-time viewers are invited to partake in the dynamic program of events that surround this ambitious undertaking. White Walls gallery will be producing a schedule of live installations, a continually updated map of works as they appear around the city, a public artist talk, and an evening of film screenings related to EINE’S art.

Rooted in the subcultural practice of graffiti, EINE moved into the more socially acceptable expression of street art in the early 2000s as a way to become a full time artist creating public works that were perceived as more legitimate. However, his fundamental art practice has essentially remained the same–he continues to paint words and letters on walls on the street. Letters either appear alone, on shutter fronts, or as words on walls such as ‘scary’, ‘vandalism’, and ‘monsters’ rendered in bright and amiable colors. In this way he turns negative words into positive ones. The contrast of jovial shapes and colors with dark sentiment is also a tongue-and cheek nod to the artist’s furtive and taboo origins as a graffiti writer.

The street art component of ‘GREATEST’ is complimented by a selection of works to be displayed inside the gallery. These works are part of EINE’s continual exploration of letters and words as his quintessential format for aesthetic inquiry. EINE’s studio process involves a layering of stencils onto the primed and painted canvas. Re-envisioning basic Victorian typographical structure, he begins with vintage hand-printed wood block fonts, reworking and refining them until he is inspired to cut the final stencil. This working methodology marks the continual evolution of the font by the artist’s hand.

In the early 2000s, EINE began a symbiotic collaboration with the street artist, Banksy. The artists worked and exhibited together for several years traveling to Australia, Berlin, Vienna and Denmark where Gallery V1 held the Banksy vs. EINE show in 2003. EINE also collaborated with Banksy on the famous Palestinian Wall project.

In 2010 the Prime Minister David Cameron presented President Barack Obama with a piece of EINE’s work as a gift. This diplomatic exchange between the world powers catapulted EINE’s work into the limelight on both sides of the Atlantic. GREATEST will be EINE’s first show in the US since his work was given to President Obama.

EINE is a London-based artist whose career started over 25 years ago when he tagged anything he could get his hands on. Although EINE’s work was initially illegal, he created a distinct typographical style that has made him one of London’s most ingenious and original street artists. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Toyko and throughout Europe. His painting commissions have also taken him worldwide with trips to Israel, Australia, South Africa and India. EINE was invited to take part in Banksy’s Cans show in London. After EINE worked with Banksy he joined ‘Pictures on Walls’ where he worked as their resident silkscreen artist and produced prints for their artists including Mode 2, and Banksy. He recently exhibited at The Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

White Walls Gallery is the premiere West Coast destination for urban art. Combined with the Shooting Gallery just next door, this 4,000 sq ft space is one of the largest art galleries on the West Coast. Justin Giarla founded the gallery in 2005 with a commitment to furthering the urban art movement that stems from street art and graffiti art. Named for its plain white walls, we take a backseat to the real focus: the art.

The Herbert Art Gallery And Museum Presents: Street Art: Contemporaty Prints From The V&A (Coventry, England)

The Herbert Gallery and Museum

MEDIA RELEASE

Banksy comes to the Herbert …

Herbert Art Gallery & Museum will host the UK public premiere of

Street Art: Contemporary Prints from the V&A a new touring exhibition

including works by celebrated street artist Banksy…

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry will be taking inspiration from the street this autumn as it showcases work from some of the best, freshest and most controversial street artists around.  The UK premiere of the new temporary exhibition Street Art: Contemporary Prints from the V&A opens on 9 October, 2010 and is completely FREE to see.

This brand new touring exhibition explores the ways street art has moved away from the painted wall into the medium of printmaking, creating distinctive, exciting visuals along the way. Drawn from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s internationally renowned collection of prints, Street Art: Contemporary Prints from the V&A showcases established and emerging street artists, both British and international, including names such as Banksy, D*Face, Eine, Miss Tic, Swoon and Shepard Fairey.  A piece of Eine’s work was recently gifted to Barack Obama from David Cameron.

The Herbert has commissioned six emerging artists on the UK street scene to create new works of art that will be displayed in a second complementary exhibition Fresh Paint.  Pahnl, SPQR, Lucy McLauchlan, Ben Slow, AsOne and Newso have all created pieces that have not been seen before, and will not be seen together again.

Contextual images showing street art in its original settings have been provided by Very Nearly Almost magazine.

Dominic Bubb, Exhibitions Officer at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum said “Being the first venue to show the V&A’s exhibition is amazing for us especially with the Banksy pieces.  We wanted to add an extra element to make this exhibition unique to Coventry so we’ve commissioned six works from up and coming Fresh Paint artists.  Add to this the street images supplied from the VNA Magazine and you’ll see that this is a wholly exclusive exhibition that will never be seen anywhere else again.”

Street artists produce work in a variety of media, including the works on paper seen in this exhibition. Street art prints offer the opportunity to collect and preserve this otherwise ephemeral art form, which now moves between the street and the gallery. Street art prints are an interesting development, both within the medium of printmaking and within urban art. Although street artists produce work for exhibitions and galleries, most still continue to work outside the gallery system, or in some cases, creating galleries of their own. This exhibition explores the recurring themes within the genre, such as historic and current subjects, traditional methods of image-making and styles familiar from art history.

The art will also be heading out of the gallery and spilling over onto the street through a range of special events, activities and unique artworks hidden around Coventry.  Shoppers in the city centre and the bus station should keep their eyes open and look out for miniature scenes and artworks which can then be photographed and shared on the Herbert’s Flickr site.

Between 11:00am and 4:00pm, on Saturday 11 September visitors can meet some of the artists taking part in the exhibition and see demonstrations of live spraying, painting, pasting and stencilling at Street Art Saturday, they will then have the opportunity to  walk away with a FREE new and unique artwork in Take it, it’s yours.

Street art is a growing world-wide phenomenon where artists have taken their art outside of the traditional galleries and exhibitions and created a new platform with which to showcase their work.  Walls, doors, derelict buildings, pavements, rivers and railings have all been used creatively to display an artist’s work.

Whilst most street art is produced illegally and without permission, it is a movement which has developed into recognised art form with street artists becoming well-known and respected among their peers and within the art world.

For further information on these and other FREE family events, exhibitions, talks and activities visit www.theherbert.org or join our family mailing list at www.theherbert.org/mailing-list.

Elisa and Seth: The Dynamic Duo “Books” You at Carmichael Gallery (CA)

Hands up, the new sheriffs of Culver City saw you lustily ruffling those pages with your flirting fingers!

Opening Saturday night, “Booked” at Carmichael Gallery

An unusual confluence of art and artists and the books that love them, this show satisfies your yearning for adventure and mystery, and more conventional pursuits like oggling and drooling. The art of reading tactile 3-D books has not completely been supplanted by glowing rectangles that are poked and prodded – much like the art of photography and painting, we were all silly to think they ever could have been replaced.

Dave Kinsey (Image Courtesy of Carmichael Gallery)

There’s nothing like pouring over a big fat book, page after page, staring and stalling, drifting and imagining expansive vistas on an overstuffed couch on a Sunday afternoon, or even Saturday night after many cocktails at a kitchen table, bleary and carnivorous for images.

But I gush.

Bushwick Beat: Stalking the Wild Street Art with Vincent Cornelli

by photographer Vincent Cornelli

Sure, Jef Aerosol had his show 2 Fridays ago, and he’s now back home in France. But it seems worth revisiting the amount of amazing moments I captured in Bushwick that day as a result of his energy and inspiration while he was in New York; One cannot help but feed off of it.

I want to give you some behind-the-scenes photos of the art and street scene that surrounded the artist at work. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did photographing and capturing them.

Fountain Art Fair All Weekend

  • Fountain, the independent art fair pioneered by cutting-edge galleries, celebrates its 3rd year in New York.

  • Location

    Pier 66 26th St Hudson River Park
  • Schedule

    March 5-8, 2009 11am–7pm
    VIP/Press: Thurs March 5th
    Reception for the Artists: Fri. March 6, 7pm–midnight

Fountain New York 2009 participating galleries include:

Ad Hoc Art – Brooklyn
Front Room – Brooklyn
Definition Gallery – Baltimore
Glowlab – New York
Leo Kesting – New York
McCaig-Welles – Brooklyn
Stuart Shepherd Gallery – New Zealand
Vagabond-Schmarotzer Gallery – New York

Fountain was launched in March 2006 in New York in an effort to leverage support for independent galleries overlooked by the larger, corporate-sponsored art fairs. The name “Fountain” is a nod to Marcel Duchamp’s controversial sculpture which shook up the art world when it was rejected by the Society of Artists’ exhibition in 1917. Similarly, in defiant contrast with The Armory Show, Art Basel Miami Beach, Pulse, Scope and the numerous other international art fairs, Fountain has received wide public support and critical acclaim for its experimental slant. In form and spirit, the artwork exhibited at Fountain reflects the avant-garde attitude of the Dada art movement, while attracting the attention of the international clientele and top collectors who attend the more traditional fairs.

Ad Hoc Gallery will be showing work by:

Armsrock, C215, Dain, Camilla d’Errico, Leslie Ditto, Eine, Ewelina Ferruso, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Sarah Joncas, Dan-ah Kim, Hiro Kurata, Tommii Lim, Anthony Lister, LogikOne, Mijn Schatje
