StolenSpace Gallery Present Write And Repeat Group Show

A visually compelling show formed solely from text and pattern based pieces, Write and Repeat is a modern exploration of the two much celebrated forms.

Patterns are all around us. The repetition of shapes and colours form our environment, our natural and manmade landscapes. Even the landscape of our minds are built upon patterns and repetition; the habits and rituals, the 'rites' that we perpetuate. The use of text in art has drastically evolved over time, and has been used as a purely visual element, as a more direct form of artistic expression, a political tool, and as an art form in its own right. From blatant slogans to seemingly meaningless shapes, text in art offers a unique opportunity for expression.

By combining the two exclusively, StolenSpace London hope to create a visually and mentally captivating collection for their first show of 2013.

Arth Daniels, Charlie Anderson, Chloe Early, Cyrcle, D*Face, David Bray, Eelus, EINE, Greg Lamarche, Hayden Kays, Jim Houser, Josie Morway, Julie Impens, Kai & Sunny, Maya Hayuk, Mobstr, Mysterious Al, Ryca, Sylvia Ji, Shepard Fairey, Tilt, Toshikazu Nozaka, Usugrow, Will Barras, Word To Mother and more.

Private View: Thursday 21st February 2013, 6 -9pm.

Topsafe Presents: Horfee’s Imaginarium London Exhibition

Paris graffiti legend Horfe has left an indelible mark on the streets of his home city and far beyond. Enigmatic, tirelessly prolific, hugely innovative and obscenely talented, he’s earned a reputation across the world for his instantly-recognizable style and his audacious commitment to getting up. He’s a graffiti writer’s writer, whose illegal and gloriously idiosyncratic work has earned him recognition across the globe.

This month sees Horfe cross the Channel and cross seamlessly over into the world of high art, as he unveils his first ever London solo show with Topsafe london. Just don’t expect graffiti.  

“This show is not graffiti at all” says the artist. “I mean; I do graffiti outside, but to me, an art exhibition can't be graffiti. Graffiti is just not the same as ‘accepted art:’ it has to be illegal to fit that bill.”

Imaginarium is the culmination of Horfe’s lifetime obsession with drawing and making - on paper, on canvas, on wood and in sculpture - away from the streets, trains and rooftops that have made him internationally famous. The result is a ludicrously energetic collection of images and 3D pieces, all painstakingly executed by hand over many months. The show recalls graffiti, Horfe says, in the way that he has “taken all the energy I used to put into my illegal painting and focused it towards one goal: describing and organizing my aesthetic in a way that I can share with everyone, graffiti fan or not.” 

The show opens 14th March 2013, RSVP
4 Wilkes Street - London — E1 6QF

Spraying Bricks - Episode 7 - JIMMY C

Jimmy C is no stranger to Shoreditch, his work can be admired from Brick Lane through to Redchurch Street and as far as Old Street. Spraying Bricks were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the man in action on Bethnal Green Road, creating this portrait piece of a homeless man who Jimmy met on his travels in the city. Utilising his trademark 'drip' painting technique, Spraying Bricks documented the execution of this vibrant and colourful mural.

James Cochran, aka Jimmy C, is most know for his unique techniques in aerosol pointillism. James played a key role in the underground graffiti movement of Australia in the late 80's. With numerous mural commissions and community arts projects under his belt he went on to complete his Masters degree in Visual Arts at the University of South Australia, focusing on urban realist, and figurative oil painting. It was Cochran's love for graffiti and oil paintings which led to the development of his trademark 'drip' and 'scribble' paintings, composed of coloured drips and energetic lines which form vibrant cityscapes and portraits. James has travelled the world with his work, from major cities such as Australia, Berlin, New York and Paris to London, where he now resides. He is a true pioneer.

Dave Kinsey Returns to 1xRUN With Terminal Velocity

Los Angeles Artist Dave Kinsey returns to 1xRUN with"Terminal Velocity" his massive 28.75 x 36 Inch Archival Pigment Print on 330gsm Fine Art Paper.

 "This piece came to me one day when I saw an image of a man falling from the sky with a suit on--a kind of eery, yet poignant statement regarding the current state of things in the world. At that point I worked to complete a narrative and what I was seeing in my mind. 

Creating art is like writing a book in a sense and if there's an audience out there that enjoys reading it, that's inspiring to me. I'd like people to see what I'm trying to convey and let those ideas come together as they contemplate the work. But all-in-all, every piece, including this one, has it's own narrative depending on a person's life and experience filter. " - Dave Kinsey

 This edition comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Dave Kinsey and 1xRUN and goes on sale Thursday 7th February on the 1xRUN website.
