4 June Stephane Moscato - Little Fingers (UK)

Opening this THURSDAY at the Pure Evil Gallery we're going to be showing artwork by

Stéphane Moscato - STF

STF little fingers

Stéphane Moscato aka STF has been archiving the living memory of the city of Marseille for ten years.

Peeling off layers and years of illegal posters, he uses the typography and patterns he finds on them as a guide. This 'rip it up and start again' punk rock culture enthusiast first applies the stencil back to front by pressing, then uses black paint to draw the outlines of the design. Giving a modern touch to the approach of Villeglé, Stéphane calls attention to his obsession with the human body, each time telling a different story with a different mythology and an ambiguous interpretation of his work.

We are very excited and a bit proud to be presenting his first UK Solo at Pure Evil Gallery on June 04 ...

In the end it’s all a matter of perception, isn’t it? “Five years“ doesn’t sound as dramatic as “half a decade“, and what is regarded as a well-deserved timeout for some, could be described as sabotaging a career by others. Fact is, Berlin based Alias is finally back after a way too long hiatus of five years with a solo show titled “FRAGMENTS“ at OPEN WALLS Gallery.

28 Mar: Hanksy's Best of the Worst (NYC)

http://www.hanksy.com

Bundling up a slew of street art cliches “Best of the Worst” sees the poor man’s Banksy ditching gallery assistance and exhibiting all new work in an abandoned bank on the Lower East Side. Similar to his 2014 abandoned building takeover entitled “Surplus Candy,” the space will be completely transformed with unique installations and a large number of hand-painted pieces on reclaimed Brooklyn wood. In addition to a new series of Hanksy originals, “Best of the Worst” will house a notable group show cashing in on local and national urban artists (featuring over 20 up-in-coming blue chip art stars of tomorrow). All work will live alongside your favorite 90’s arcade games and TMNT/Foot Clan inspired skate ramps since, we all know, no one actually goes to art openings for the art.

6 Mar: Synergy w. Jef Aerosol (Paris)

"SYNERGY"

duo show : JEF AEROSOL & LEE JEFFRIES

opening / vernissage : 6 mars 2015 - 18.00 > 21.00 (entrée libre)

Galerie Mathgoth, 34 rue Hélène Brion 75013 PARIS

From March 6th to April 4th 2015, Matgoth gallery is welcoming stencil artist Jef Aérosol and photographer Lee Jeffries. The two talented artists have joined hands to produce the duo show : SYNERGY.

Since the very first time Jef Aérosol stumbled across Lee Jeffries' works, he's been fascinated by the portraits of homeless people that the British photographer magnifies and brings into the light.
Jef immediately saw that they could lend themselves to a stencil rendition and he could revisit in his own style those wearied faces, pregnant with meaning. In early 2014, he got in touch with Lee and they met up a few weeks later in London. They got on well with each other at once and decided on the spot about a duo show.

5 Feb: Democracia real ya! (London)

Democracia Real Ya!
Thu 5 February - Sat 28 February
FREE / Mezzanine Gallery 

35 - 47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA

Richmix

Democracia real ya!’, meaning ‘real democracy now!’, is an exciting exhibition of street art by Rosario Martínez Llaguno and Roberto Vega Jiménez, members of the Mexican art collective Lapiztola Stencil, based in Oaxaca. This collective was formed following teachers’ strikes in Oaxaca in 2006 which were violently suppressed by the state. Street art became a form of political protest, highlighting the range of issues which Mexicans face, and providing hope and inspiration. The exhibition will celebrate the fight for social justice that the artists are involved with in Oaxaca and Mexico as a whole.

Banksy's Upper Haight Rat Back in SF

Haight Street Rat: By Banksy. On display in the window facing Montgomery Street. 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Jan. 21-July 11. 836m, 836 Montgomery St., S.F. Free. www.836m.org.

Banksy’s 'Haight Street Rat’ graffiti holes up in an S.F. gallery
By Rachel Howard (original)
Updated 1:59 pm, Monday, January 19, 2015

A graffiti work by the stealth artist Banksy is back in its original street habitat — sort of.

Through July 11, the image known as “Haight Street Rat,” spray-painted on the side of a bed-and-breakfast in 2010 when Banksy was in San Francisco for the release of his documentary, “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” will be viewable to anyone who passes down the 800 block of Montgomery Street, though the 12-foot-tall work will be protected behind the glass facade of 836M, a nonprofit gallery near the Transamerica Pyramid.

The stenciled rat, which wears a Che Guevara-style cap and clutches a Magic Marker, no longer appears accompanied by the work’s original text, “THIS IS WHERE I DRAW THE LINE.” But “to me, this is as close as you can get to the intention that Banksy had, given the fact that the piece was salvaged and restored,” said Sebastien Lepinard, founder of the investment firm Next World Group and co-founder of 836M with his wife, Julie.

The Lepinards became interested in displaying the work after reading a Chronicle report on the efforts of Brian Greif, former general manager of the defunct KRON-TV, who in 2010 persuaded the owner of the vandalized Red Victorian Bed and Breakfast to let him remove 10 redwood siding planks on which the rat was painted. Greif took the painting to art-restoration specialists, who mounted the slats on corrugated aluminum. He raised $10,000 to offset costs through a Kickstarter campaign, promising never to sell the work, even though other Banksy creations have sold at auction for more than $1 million. Greif then tried to donate “Haight Street Rat” to various museums, but without a letter of authentication from the artist, the institutions said they would not accept the work.
