The show will feature new original portrait works, as well as some of my murals, all featuring the amazing models behind them. They are at the heart of the exhibition.” – Zabou

Jonni Cheatwood x Fluorescent Smogg Print Collab

Jonni Cheatwood x Fluorescent Smogg Print CollaborationFluorescent Smogg presents their second collaboration with LA based American/Brazilian artist Jonni Cheatwood.

For this new large format edition Jonni visited the London print studio during the production to hand finish each copy of the edition.
Jonni Cheatwood x Fluorescent Smogg Print Collaboration
“There is a lot of texture and movement on these works. I wanted to make these prints look like the original painting. It’s the largest print that I’ve ever done, but with the shortest print run. Each one has been hand finished by me making each print unique. Each print is a 1 of 1”

The work depicts a painter and his subject mid way through the portrait process; by hand finishing each piece, Jonni is adding another layer of complexity to the composition, painting the subject as both the artist in the piece and again as the artist himself.

Silent Shout: Works by Helen Bur at Saatchi, London

Silent Shout: Works by Helen Bur at Saatchi, London

LONDON, UK, 20 October 2021 – Saatchi Gallery will open an exhibition of works by artist Helen Bur in one of its main gallery spaces on Friday 12 November 2021. 

The exhibition will be open to the public from 12 November to 5 December 2021 with free admission. In this new body of works by artist Helen Bur, painted figures are captured in moments of quiet action, self-reflection and stillness. 

Obscured in the pause of a gesture and imbued with a sense of the surreal, Bur sensitively depicts those around her as fragments of the bigger picture. Her interest in activism and the power of groups for change, intersects with a more deeply personal reflection: in what moments, or through what means, can one come to know oneself and others?

Combining loose gestural marks with painterly figuration, we are invited to come to stillness in a moment of motion and experience the subtle nuances of emotion that can be felt and held on the canvas's surfaces. Silent Shout features works that encourage the viewer to question how we need others to truly understand ourselves. 

In the words of Sophie Mak-Schram “Bur’s Paintings elide or leave room for you to listen for what is unsaid, unseen or not yet known. They hover in the moment of becoming… transforming…about to make some noise”. 

Works from Silent Shout will be available for purchase. 

Location / Space: Saatchi Gallery, Gallery 3, Ground Floor 
Dates and Opening Hours: Open to the public: Friday 12 November – Sunday 5 December 2021. 10am – 6pm Monday - Sunday (last admission 5.00pm) 
Admission : Free Entry. Pre-booking not required.

Illustrator Tony Riff's SOLITARY Exhibition

Tony Riff_BSMT_SPACE_02

This November, Tony Riff will be bringing his unique illustrative style to BSMT Space for his debut solo show ‘Solitary’.

Blending elements of bold colours, abstract shapes and vibrant characters, Tony Riff’s artwork is a glimpse into a world populated by mythical creatures, forgotten mascots, shady street dwellers and everything in between.

Loosely revolving around the feelings of isolation, boredom and restlessness that came with adjusting to life under lockdown, the artwork for the show is based on the rough concept sketches and notes that were put together during 2020.

‘Solitary’ will be a peek into a new side of Tony Riff, while still maintaining the same playful approach we have come to associate with the artist’s work.

Opening hours: Wed - Sun 10am -5pm, Sat 10 - 6

The show opens with a private view THIS THURSDAY November 11th and runs until November 21st.

Perishable Rush's pieces are put together using wrappers, old posters and paper debris from the streets of the countries he visits, each work carefully built to reveal a mask which at once is unbelievably intricate but speaks of a deeper truth. 

MASKED will now be running from Dec 5th to Dec 6th, with a limited collection of full size paper masks, postcard pieces and a print release on display.
