Last Wednesday (14th) we took ourselves along to London's Soho for a much anticipated visit to the home of Heni the art book publishers. The reason being the latest solo show by Irish artist Conor Harrington, Watch Your Palace Fall. The show is both a display of new work made up of 10 paintings and studies and the launch of Conor's first career spanning monograph.


The colours Conor uses are vivid and exciting and coupled with the painted out faces bring the action and movement of the subject's body to the fore. There is a powerful energy to these works helped in no small way by the scale of the paintings, which range from large to "where on earth would you put that" but you would expect no less from an artist that paints walls you couldn't access without a cherry picker.

UK based duo Kai & Sunny will be presenting a new body of work at Colette in Paris from Monday 29th August. My Eye On You will be their 1st solo exhibition at the gallery, following on from shows in London, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

This new body of work shows further development in their original biro pen series, in conjunction with the exhibition the artists will release a new print edition, of which half will be available for purchase at the opening reception and the remaining online from the artists website HERE.


My Eye On You Print.
My Eye On You Print.

You know here at artbleat we love a good old bit of "Art-speak" so here is a nice paragraph from the press release that describes the pen peices in more detail:

"In both form and theme ‘Time’ is in the foundation of each image. The original pieces represent the shifting flow of time. The slow methodic process of building thin line upon thin line in colour creates a tension inside the compositions. The works are intense and powerful but the delicate nature of the lines creates a fragility, as if the structure would collapse if one were taken away. The new works show magnified and stylized drawings of natural occurrences featuring continuous tidal-like waves and intense sunbursts"


Part of the show continues their longstanding collaboration with Toydrum with a limited edition vinyl record box set and show booklet. Friends and peers have been asked to re-envision Toydrum's music in whatever way they see fit. Some artists have reworked tracks whilst others have covered their songs. The album sees exclusive collaborations with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Trentemøller, Frank Wiedemann, Pye Corner Audio and more.

You will be able to pick up one of the box sets from the gallery or HERE at the artists website for the sum of £40 plus postsge

New York street artist Pyramid Oracle is back in London for his Oculus solo show at BSMT space in Dalston. While in the UK the artist has been using the gallery as a studio to create the works for the show and also a number of his large scale, hand painted, monochromatic paste-ups that can now be seen around the streets of East London.


'OCULUS' show by @pyramidoracle cases a collection of intricate and symbolic works that examine the dimensions of human spirit, and the complex world that it inhabits.

In a world where everything is recycled... nothing is new under the sun. With all things constantly being repurposed there is no originality. Only that which is authentic.

By exploring the metaphysical, it seeks to capture the often imperceptible geometric systems that permeate through all of nature. And revisit venerable means of understanding the great mysterious architecture of the universe."


The exhibition kicks off with a private view at 6pm on the 18th August ( RSVP to info@bsmt.co.uk ) and runs up to 24th August.


There will also be a print available at the show created by Pyramid and Donk at Dalston's Print Space.

Its a three layer screen print that measures up at 50cm x 70cm on tan 300gsm paper and is from an edition of 40. Priced at £75

You need to contact info@bsmt.co.uk to reserve one.

Nick JS Thompson's Relics exhibition opens tonight in North london. This very personal collection of black and white photographs presents the space left behind, the end of a cycle of belonging. The press release explains the background to this collection of work better than I could.

"In Nick JS Thompson’s first visit to his grandparents house since his grandfather passed away and his grandmother moved into care, he became aware of the character of the space where once personality had been the focus.

Documented in black and white the images are stripped of their warmth as if something is missing. Without the characters that previously inhabited it, the space itself becomes a gallery for relics that are left behind, and we are given an insight into these characters.

These stark images in a once loving environment show the inability of the artist to reconcile his emotional response to memory and loss"

The exhibition, held at BSMT Space in Stoke Newington Road, opens at 6pm on Thursday 4th August and runs for only four days, closing on Sunday 7th.

Nick has produced a book to accompany Relics which will be available from the show and online via the link below.

Bristol's legendary graffiti and street art festival is underway. Upfest now in it's 9th year will be bringing over 300 artists together to paint various locations around the Bedminster area of south Bristol. The 3 day festival that claims to be Europe's largest pulled in over 30,000 visitors last year. You will find a full programme of live art, music, bars, food stalls,kid's areas and for a change some much needed sunshine.

Upfest will conclude on Monday 25th July but most of the larger artworks will be hanging around for a lot longer. We dispatched a couple of our top photographers down with a brief of "send us some photos if you are not too busy" and will be posting them up as we get them. Scroll down for Links at the bottom of the page as always.

UPDATE 11/07

Got a handful of images from the opening night, thanks to Ben Oakley for the hospitality and Dalopo for the art. Get along and have a look if you can, the show is on until 24th July, scroll down to the bottom of the post for the links


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tonight (Friday 08th) sees the opening of Spanish artist Dalopo's first UK solo show "My Way" at Ben Oakley Gallery in Greenwich. Mixing modern urban styles with that of the Spanish artists of the 20th century Dalopo brings a riot of colour packaged with a social message to London in what promises to be a much praised debut show.

"We grow up accepting certain values related to the way in which society educates us, but time has passed, and to me, that shirt is now too small. We are grownups, and now is when we decide. Fantasy is behind us, reality rules..

"My Way" is a relativization of cultural ideals, a blow to innocence, a shift to tackling the taboo on dealing with topics such as love and sex. And the removal of labels, roles and gender divide." – DALOPO

First night photo's to follow....
