Minions are love ❤️
Details: Oil on mini canvas(70mmX70mm). I think these small pieces are great to have. It takes up very little space and brightens up any corner instantly. What do you guys think?!?😀
Last week I worked on this commission which is now with the amazing collector from Mumbai. So grateful to all of you for your support!😇 #loveforminions#minionart
Damien Meade at Peter von Kant opens next Friday 2 March 2018, PV 6-9pm - Pictured here, 3 Untitled works (detail) - From the exhibition text by Olivia Fletcher: ‘Damien Meade’s paintings begin as mud, but live on as creatures of dirt. Minerals suspended in water are made compact—first by time, then the artist’s hand—and transform into something that Meade cannot, or at least does not want to name. Paint shifts onto linen panels like dried-up play doh curling at its edges, creating what looks like hair, pairs of lips or the surface of skin, perhaps. In an unusual twist of tradition, this clay will never see the inside of a furnace. Instead, it stays wet and, once he is through, will be crushed and churned into the shape of Meade’s next model. These faces are consumed by an assumed role—as though, each portrait is actually an actor’s headshot auditioning for a play called ‘High Art’—so much so, that they have become indifferent to the eye that is beholding them. Mark, though, there is nothing theatrical about mud—it sits, covers up, and cooks while basking in the sun. There is a push and pull, a child’s gentle yet commanding tug, at the artificiality of this performance being in opposition to but also dependent on the most natural medium imaginable: mud.’ - ALL ENQUIRIES to [email protected]nkant.com #damienmeade#newexhibition#soloshow#artexhibition#petervonkant#london#painting#newexhibition#london#contemporarypainting#contemporaryart#sculpture#clay#irishartist#kunst#artcollector#artcollecting
Reg Mombassa/Chris O'Doherty dynamic works adorn the hoardings at Wynard Place, Wynyard Station, where the site of commercial redevelopment is currently under construction. This is just a small section of what encompasses a wider public art display around the precinct.
Chris O'Doherty first came to public attention as a guitarist with Mental As Anything, the band he formed in 1976 with his brother, Peter, and fellow artist Martin Plaza. In 1985 he joined Mambo, creating his unique graphics for posters and clothing that are known worldwide. His work is celebrated for its creative and often darkly humorous and sometimes surreal approach to themes including politics, religion, history, and pop culture. He continues to have commercial success as an established artist and regularly exhibits his drawings and paintings.
