ART LOVERS GIFT GUIDE : LONDON STYLE

Want to know the perfect gift for the art lover in your life? It’s Art!

Here are a few stunning pieces for the walls of any passionate art collector who has a pulse on the new contemporary art movement. The following pieces were shown in London at the Moniker International Art Fair.

Sainer (Etam Cru) and Zoer “Plastic Psychodelic” (2017) Acrylic on linen Sainer and Zoer Collab 60″ × 48″ | 152× 122cm $9,000

Sainer (Etam Cru) is a painter and muralist who is a graduate of Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. He currently lives and works in Gdynia, Poland.

Telmo Miel “Round About Midnight” (2017) Oil and acrylic on linen 19.69″ × 27.56″ | 50 × 70 cm $2,400

Telmo Miel is Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann, a muralist and image-making duo from the Netherlands. Combining multiple elements in a single composition, they layer references to the human and animal worlds to create complex creatures and fantastic scenarios. With positivity, humor and a touch of the romantic, their work is arresting and epic.

James Bullough “Oblivion” (2017) Oil, acrylic and aerosol on wood panel 31.5″ × 27.5″ | 80× 70cm $4,400

James Bullough is an American born artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. His paintings, and huge monumentally scaled site-specific murals are phenomenal combinations of realist painting technique and graphic punctuation.

Carl Cashman “A Helmet Full of Tears” (2017) Spray on cradled wooden panel 16″ × 20″ | 41 × 51 cm $800

Carl Cashman creates vibrant neon colored op-art, a genre he has coined “neometry”, or neon geometry. The works are hypnotic, at times bordering on the hallucinatory, and blur the distinction between digital and analog forms.

David Cooley – “Epicycloidal” (2017) Acrylic and resin on wood panel 36″ × 36″ | 91× 91cm $6,500

David Cooley, a Santa Barbara-based artist is inspired by the idea of creating something that’s previously only existed in thought and making something that’s tangible, with the intent to have an impact on others, whether it’s thought-provoking, fun, or just aesthetically pleasing.

Kevin Peterson “Indie Lion” (2017) Oil on wood panel 28″ × 15″ | 71× 38cm $6,500

Kevin Peterson‘s work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.

If buying an original piece of artwork as a gift is too bold or rich for your blood, the Thinkspace Projects print shop is filled with beautiful high-quality giclee prints.

Happy Holidays! 

JUXTAPOZ MAGAZINE PREVIEWS THE SPACE MONKEY RETURNS

“There was a special era in underground art, right before blogs and social media took hold and that monthly magazine that came to your doorstep was your only window into culture. This isn’t a time to wax poetic, but in hearing about Dalek/James Marshall’s Space Monkey 20th Anniversary exhibition at Thinkspace this Winter, it made us think about that time of discovery. It made us think of Murakami’s Mr. Dob, Camille Rose Garcia’s fairytale flourishes or a Shag lounge scene. These are icons that helped shaped the 21st-century art landscape, and the Space Monkey is right there.” – —Evan Pricco

Full Juxtapoz preview here.

Exhibition is open now through December, 23rd, 2017

Brooklyn Street Art Talks with BEZT for Beautiful Mess

Brooklyn Street Art connected with Bezt while in New York for the exhibition Beautiful Mess at Spoke Art NYC. The feature is a great piece that walks with Bezt as he discusses the work in the show in addition to his creative process with longtime collaborator Sainer (who work as a duo under the moniker Etam Cru), visit the Brooklyn Street Art website for the full article.

Sometimes a portrait is actually the means to an end, rather than the focal point, just so he has the opportunity to paint something new. “For example the painting with the woman and the daughter piece, that one with the house. I wanted to paint the trees! I had a night photo of the trees and I said ‘Okay, I need an idea so I can paint the trees.’ – Brooklyn Street Art

Visit the Brooklyn Street Art website for the full piece.
