John Abell solo show – The Emporium 1st -17th February

January 26, 2011

Cardiff based artist John Abell’s work explores the human condition via drawing, print and painting. The images are charged with a sense of darkness, fear, and death, in a sense of pessimism or even nihilism.  We’re looking forward to this one.

Max Rippon (RIPO) show in Barcelona

January 12, 2011

Just a heads up for anyone in or around Barcelona this coming Friday, which sees the opening of a new exhibition of paintings and installations by one of our favourite writers/artists the incredibly talented Ripo.

‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ opens this Friday, January 14th at Galeria Cosmo, Barcelona and runs until February 14th.

Originating from New York but seemingly in love with Barcelona Ripo continues to tear things up around the walls of Europe and beyond with its unique textbased work and his unique and crazy fresh style. His choice of location for his outdoor work is always bang on the money and his ‘ Your Name Here’ project always had us waiting for his next piece to pop up. His recent ‘ Change in Vain’ wall was definitely one of our highlights of 2010.
