“The Minotaur” in London’s Nether Regions

Lazarides Gallery in London has a penchant for spectacular pop-ups in cavernous quarters, effecting a theatrical aura for the work of artists to take center stage. This month, Lazarides dives beneath the City of London, where there lies a complex system of tunnels and activities, including reportedly a military citadel – a bunker called Pindar. The Old Vic Theater, built in 1818, is located just south-east of Waterloo Station in London and just above an almost mythic installation by the gallerist this month. The tunnels and subterranean chambers housing “The Minotaur”, a collection of work by fine artists and Street Artists, add a clandestine mystery for the visitors who venture below. Combined with a program that can include dining and theatre, the mythic theme of the Minotaur is interpreted by the stable of artists to sometimes stunning effect.

EUROPEAN BAILOUT SHOW
Antony Micallef – Conor Harrington – Ian Francis – Jonathan Yeo
JR – Mode2 – Paul Insect – Stanley Donwood – Vhils – Zevs

July 28 – August 28, 2011

POST NO BILLS proudly announces their second exhibition in its Venice
Beach based print shop. The European Bailout Show will feature
exclusive new limited edition prints and original artwork by ten of
Europe’s most innovative and highly celebrated artists- Anthony
Micallef, Conor Harrington, Ian Francis, Jonathan Yeo, JR, Mode 2,
Paul Insect, Stanley Donwood, Vhils and Zevs.

Continuing the overwhelming success of the shop’s launch last month
with artist collective FAILE, the European Bailout Show highlights
some of the most riveting creative minds in Europe today, with an
impressive range of works from established and up-and-coming artists
who continue to defy categorization. These artists’ innovative
approaches and distinctive styles continue to challenge the
conventional definitions of art and its boundaries.

The European Bailout Show features exclusive print editions including
Arnold Schwarzenegger titled “Arnie” by Jonathan Yeo, the renowned
master painter recognized for his controversial portraits made from
collaged pornographic magazine clippings. Stanley Donwood, the highly
regarded designer of Radiohead’s album art, has created a unique and
limited print suite. Other notable editions include those of TED award-
winning guerrilla artist and filmmaker, JR, and a small edition of
laser etchings on wood by Portuguese artist Vhils, identified by his
inventive techniques used to manipulate urban environments. In
addition to the offered multiples, select artists will exhibit
original artwork including Antony Micallef, who won massive acclaim
for his 2007 Los Angeles sold-out solo show, Impure Idols, and Conor
Harrington, recognized for his impressive large-scale works of art,
mixing bold imagery with historical and contemporary themes.

The second exhibition at POST NO BILLS continues to promote the shop’s
mission-to provide passionate collectors of all levels with access to
artwork of premium quality and master craftsmanship from an array of
prolific talent worldwide. Now, the European Bailout Show brings an
opportunity to acquire a slice of Europe’s finest.

POST NO BILLS
The term POST NO BILLS is commonly identified in stencil form – on
barriers erected around construction sites in an effort to deter clean
walls from being altered. Generally speaking, this practice produces a
contrary effect. Our founders subscribe to the notion that breaking
rules generally inspires more ingenuity than following them. Which is
why POST NO BILLS was created.

POST NO BILLS is an inventive print shop with a focus on hand made
limited edition multiples. We are a singular destination where
groundbreaking artists from around the globe can sell their wears
directly to passionate collectors at all levels. Editions will be made
on the premises with a true dedication to quality.

Opening Reception: July 28, 2011 (7 – 10pm)
Exhibition Runs: July 28– August 28, 2011

The Outsiders Presents: Stanley Donwood “Work on Paper” (London, UK)

The Outsiders
brooklyn-street-art-stanley-donwood-the-outsiders-gallery
The Outsiders is proud to present Work on Paper, a solo exhibition by the artist Stanley Donwood. Donwood will showcase a selection of rare print editions and original drawings on paper. Included in this selection are up to 13 brand new exclusive prints, as well as never before seen prints from his most acclaimed series namely ‘Atoms For Peace’, ‘London Views’ and ‘Twisted Woods’.

Renowned for his collaboration with Radiohead, Stanley has created all the band’s artwork from their second album on. Yet, Donwood’s evocative and haunting imagery reaches far beyond band’s brand, which he helped to catapult to international stardom.

Interweaving meditative illustrations with propagandist text and graphics, his work’s potency lies in the unique pairing of deeply personal emotions and political themes alongside an inherent sense of reserved wit. This winning combination allows for the examination of grave subjects not entirely seriously but without a doubt respectfully
