‘Home' is Remi Rough’s first London solo exhibition of new works since 2009 and represents a homecoming for the artist.

Home alludes to London itself. Remi Rough was born in South East London in 1971 and has lived and worked in the city ever since. He is a leading figure within the new movement of urban modernist painters (Graffuturists / Graffuturism) - Remi has adopted the theories and practices of the modern masters that preceded him.

This new body of work explores the relationship of balance, tension and colour with geometric theory. The many formative years spent as a young practitioner of ‘graffiti style writing' have referenced these forward thinking abstractions. The letterforms and wild styles have progressed into a mature language of ‘Suprematism’.

 The works are precisely designed geometric compositions that contrast heavily with their organic surfaces such as hand made papers or wood assemblages. They have more in common with the Russian constructivists of the 19th Century as they do the graffiti writers of the 20th Century. The paintings are concerned with mathematical questions of shape, size, relative position of figures and forms, which is fundamental in current human obsession with practical science.  

"Remi Rough continues to challenge the boundaries of contemporary painting as he traverses between the collected history of art and todays urban lexicon. Thematically he continues to explore associations between Suprematism concepts, Abstract Expressionism and Graffiti art, which in practice and theory they become ever present. This amalgamation yields a new type of modernist painting, one that reflects his passion for the aforementioned but also his desire re-imagine it all for todays world." - Carlos Mare

Lusus Naturae is a two-person exhibition with French artists 100TAUR and Hisham Echafaki featuring a series of new paintings, drawings and three dimensional works.

In natural history, the latin terminology ‘Lusus Naturae’ is used to describe any creature or specimen that defied classification, an animal or a person that is markedly unusual or a freak of nature.

Curated by Butterflyartnews, the show explores notions of anthropomorphism, human fascination with oddities or monstrosities and our fragile relationship with the natural world.

The works on display invite the viewer into a world where fantastical hybrid creatures evolve alongside wonderfully bizarre animal figures. 100TAUR’s mythical monsters are portrayed in a surrealist dark enchanted world with colourful details rich in narrative.

Hisham Echafaki’s paintings play with intricate repetitive patterns found in nature and examine the impact that humankind exerts on its fragile balance. For the first time Hisham Echafaki will also present a series of his three-dimensional paintings. Using a unique technique of resin layering and acrylic paint, the artist meticulously builds layers to create three-dimensional insects in transparent boxes. Oniric butterflies, bees and dragonflies appear to be suspended and preserved in the manner of fragile taxidermy insects.

Exhibition dates : 14 - 16 October
Private View : 14 October 6-10 PM

'Your Not My Type' EINE

StolenSpace is proud to present an inaugural solo show from one of the most renowned names in British Street Art, Ben Eine.

Eine remains one of London's most prolific and original street artists specializing in the central element of all graffiti - the form of letters. Sticking with his iconic style of typography that shot him to fame, this new body of work Your Not My Type* promises to be stunning as ever.

Eines unique style can be seen around the world. Producing huge letters on shop fronts, his bright, colourful work has transformed streets around the world in cities including LA, San Francisco, Mexico City, Miami, Paris, Dublin, Tokyo, Stockholm as well as his home city of London. Through his unique combination of colour, size, and style, Eines words and letters become abstract pieces in their own right.

Eine bold work goes further than the streets however. David Cameron famously gifted Barack Obama a piece on his first trip to Washington as Prime Minister. From single letters to wry statements, Eine has left his mark worldwide. Your Not My Type promises to be another unmissable show from this incredible artist.

This October, Lazarides Rathbone welcomes Parisian artist and TED Prize winner JR back to London with an exhibition of all new work from the acclaimed series of Les Bosquets (2014 – present) and UNFRAMED Ellis Island (2014 – present). Taking place over two floors of their flagship gallery on Rathbone Place, the showcase will feature a mix of colour prints as well as the artist's signature wood mounted monochromatic paper pieces from the UNFRAMED Ellis Island and Les Bosquets series. Visitors to the gallery will be invited to experience the world of JR through the juxtaposition of these two unique series of all new work.

The UNFRAMED Ellis Island project seeks to commemorate the stories of millions of immigrants who entered the United States via Ellis Island. Collecting source materials from the Ellis Island archives, JR created a series of installations that bring to life the chronicles of those coming from all over the world. Through his interventions, the artist envisages the hardships they endured, leaving behind their families, friends and belongings, to start a new life in a world unknown. The resulting series of works that will be presented highlight the enduring spirit of these immigrants whose presence has shaped the modern world.

Coinciding with his exhibition at the gallery, the short film Les Bosquets is set to premiere in London. Inspired by the 2005 riots in the French ghettos, JR reveals his experience within the community of the Bosquets in Montfermeil, where his first art project, Portrait of a Generation, took place. The combination of video archive, choreography and personal testimony takes us to a place where art, social uproar and the power of image collide. JR shows how striving to exist in these ghettos can overcome the precariousness of life and create beauty in the realm of the unexpected.
