Cityscape exhibition in London


This seems like a cool line up for a group show. Especially looking forward to Skullphone, Neck Face and Taki 183 since I have never seen their work in the UK and I’m a big fan of Neck Face in particular.

Here’s the press release:

Lava Collective presents: Cityscape

Previews November 5th, 6pm – 9:30pm. Then open daily, 11am – 7pm.

The LAVA Collective has put together a group show of predominantly North American origin, focusing on street art and urban culture. Big names like Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Dalek and Skullphone vie for attention with an exciting selection of emerging artists.

The stars of the show are Brooklyn duo Peru Ana Ana Peru, who have been invited over especially to install a site-specific montage of their work. This couple have made a name for themselves in NYC with their vibrant and distinctive street pieces but they also produce video, sculpture, and fine art. They have got a big solo show coming up at the Brooklynite Gallery NYC before heading over here to oversee their first appearance in a London show.

Cityscape will also showcase the photography of Ricky Powell. The man they call the ‘Fourth Beastie Boy’ was on hand to witness the birth of hip hop culture in NYC. For this show he has submitted a selection of his classic portraits, including Run DMC, KRS One, Easy E, Eric B and Rakim. These extraordinary photos depict iconic musicians in intimate surroundings; Easy E is tuning a radio, Jam master Jay is all smiles at the airport. This is a rare opportunity to see Powell’s work in London.

Preview of From the Streets of Brooklyn @ Thinkspace

Some great teaser shots of the first big show of ’09 over at Arrested Motion.

“From the Street of Brooklyn” opens January 9th at LA’s Thinkspace gallery. The show is curated by Brooklyn’s Ad Hoc Art.  Vandalog’s Q&A with Ad Hoc Art’s Director, Andrew Michael Ford, can be found here. They’ve gotten some of New York’s best and most prolific street and graffiti artists together for one large group show. Looking at the artist lineup, it seems like the only way this show could bring Brooklyn to LA any better would be to transplant a street.

Great in ’08: Peru Ana Ana Peru Says…

As part of Vandalog’s “Great in ’08” series, which will be running every day for the rest of the month. Check out previous posts here. Street artists from across the world have been given one post to give away to one artist who they feel has been doing great work recently. Today it’s Peru Ana Ana Peru‘s turn.

Who is one artist doing really great work right now?

Peru Ana Ana Peru: it’s hard to pick one, as there are so many, but we’d have to say that we are quite fond of the work going up by the ADHD Kids at the moment. they seem to be trying to go their own way in the graff scene, and that’s nice. faro, bloke, anthrax, naks, venom, etc. they’ve got great style, and their letterings are dope.
