1AM Gallery is pleased to present "Memento Mori" a new collection of works by the profound stencil artists C215 and Logan Hicks. Memento mori, Latin for "remember (that you have) to die" is the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.

Join us for the opening of this exhibition Thursday, September 17th, 6:30-9:30pm. This event is free and open to the public. For inquiries or art catalog preview email Artsales@1amgallery.com

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 ...

Pure Evil Gallery ,
108 Leonard st,
London EC2A 4XS

Gallery Hours:
10am - 6pm daily

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.

Exhibition Dates: March 7 – April 11

SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to present Paper Cut, a group exhibition featuring artwork by six artists who cut into, tear into, and deconstruct the humble, traditional medium of paper to explore the terrain of their subject matter.

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.
