December 13th, 2014

Paul Stephenson’s ‘Laundromat (Reflection Painting)’, part of the StolenSpace ‘Spectrum’ Group Show, has been featured in Esquire magazine:

“The idea behind this series of paintings is to explore the dynamic between the original oil painting (the ‘art’) and the reflection (the place where it is viewed/hung) and the story that these two variables create. The reflection painting you currently have is the first of this series, the reflection is the interior of a Laundromat in Chinatown, New York City 2014. In the reflection you can see the owner of the Laundromat and his wife at work below the fluorescent lights of their Laundromat. This scene is superimposed onto the oil painting, a French landscape painted in 1843 showing nuns collecting sheaves of wheat from the fields as the sun fades. The two images contrast interior and exterior, contemporary and pre-industrial, but they also share similarities, the subjects of both images are people and both are scenes of workplaces. The narratives of both original oil painting and reflection run together to create a new story. The viewer of this painting sees the painted reflection and is made aware of their own reflection, their own experience as a viewer, they become part of the picture and part of the story.”

Word To Mother x Spraying Bricks

October 31st, 2014

“It was around ’98 when I first met Word To Mother. Lining up outside the courts of Summerfields Leisure Centre, Hastings, for basketball practice. Built like a racing snake, with shorts below the knees and socks pulled up to meet, he was the first kid I’d seen ever spin a ball on his finger. Immediately, at the time with him being my elder, I was amazed. 15 years on and still as humble as ever, Word To Mother is one of the worlds most respected artists.”

- Spraying Bricks

Outside, inside, paper, glass, salvaged wood, canvas, baseball bats, skin…Word To Mother is diverse in his medium and many of his influences are from everyday life and the positive people that surround him.

Second in the SF series from this is the first instalment from Word To Mother, whose recent body of work ‘Too Blessed To Be Stressed’ is currently on show at StolenSpace Gallery until Sunday, 9th November.

D*Face recently landed in sunny Las Vegas and began working on this huge new piece for the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, bringing his signature imagery.

Evident by last year’s successful program and the many murals that still exist on the streets of downtown today, the urban surroundings of the Life is Beautiful Festival provide a perfect backdrop for the eclectic and semi-permanent street art program featuring some of the biggest names in the international street art scene. Curated by Charlotte Dutoit (JustKids), the street art program will transform the festival landscape into a magical art-inspired playground to give people a playful and unexpected escape into art.
