This first issue of 2017 features a dossier on artists using the medium of wood, highlighting Graphic Surgery, Steph Cop, Haroshi, Taku Obata, AJ Fosik and Arne Quinze, as well as Vincent Mauger, Faile, Jaime Molina, Hilary White and Michael Zelehoski. Through this material, both ancestral and contemporary, the artists demonstrate the permanence of life.
We then dive into the typographic and calligraphic dimension of post-graffiti with European graffiti pioneer Niels Shoe Meulman and Parisian graffiti artist Swiz. We tackle the dreamlike dimension of figuration with two Asian artists, both expatriates in Los Angeles, Andrew Hem and Yoskai Yamamoto.
Our imagination continues to travel through the aerial structures of Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi. American artist Jerkface‘s contemporary pop creations make you smile.
We enter the intimate world ofIsaac Cordal‘s workshop, the history of Psyckoze and the catacombs. While we also feature the most beautiful painted walls of the winter on the outdoor side, our indoor section “A work, an artist” allows you to discover emerging artists such as Anna Taratiel, Frau Isa, Dourone, Zenoy, Henrik Uldalen, Gleo and Michael Vasquez.
We also cover the Brassaï Graffiti exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, must-see art news, the latest limited editions and the latest book releases.
Last but not least, we recommend over 40 exhibitions to see at the start of the year in galleries and museums, as well as the must-see trade fairs.
