I’ve got a few shows opening this week to highlight, most of them in London, one in Brazil.
Let’s start in Brazil. Sixeart has his first solo show in Brazil opening on Tuesday the 11th.
Sixeart “Sueñan las gallinas con ser humanas”
In 2008 the Spanish artist Sixeart achieved international fame by participating in “STREET ART AT THE TATE MODERN” in London, along with brazilian Os Gemeos, and Nunca, french JR, united states Faile and italian Blu. Today his works are shown in Spain alongside those of Miró, Chillida and Tapies.
“Sueñan las gallinas con ser humanas” is series of 13 new pieces on paper made exclusively to be exhibited in ROJO®artspace Sao Paulo from 11.08.2009 to 05.09.2009.ROJO®artspace Sao Paulo

And now back to London.
My Thursday evening starts off with a stop over at Lazarides‘ Rathbone Place gallery for Invader show ‘Low Fidelity’. There should be everything we’ve come to expect from the Parisian globe trotter: mosiac video game characters, rubix cubes, QR codes and even sculpture. Personally, I’ve always preferred the thrill of discovering an Invader on the street to seeing it in my home, but that hasn’t stopped me from buying one in the past. I’m curious, though not enthusiastic, about what this show will bring. Plus, everybody knows that Lazarides throws great opening parties.
Then it’s off to Pure Evil’s gallery for his solo show which mixes art and music.
And then maybe a stop over at Urban Angel for “The Sentiment of Love,” a show of erotic photography.
Friday night I hope to be back in Shoreditch for the launch of London Handstyles at Rarekind Gallery. Another London graffiti book.
