vyner street pt2.

some random examples of an exhibition in a gallery space on vyner street. vyner street galleries open their doors every first thursday of the month ( winter brought a different atmosphere to the monthly event but it was still as busy in the spaces and through the street. images above are from a particular dominator/submissive exhibition ( where the women are beautifully painted with bright inks on large scale wall hangings, and men were on the floor so you can “walk all over them”. other strange items in the room included a garment with embroidered and beaded womens private parts. some other key artists and art firms that feature their work are the websites below. james x:

david hockney on an ipad.

an unusual exhibition to say the least. but hockney invites the use of the ipad for drawing and painting. i think its a good idea and will get a lot more people tapping into their creative side. photos taken at the current exhibition in the louisiana moma, denmark

poul gernes.

scandinavian artist poul gernes played an important role in the painting, sculpting and filmmaking world for 50 years until his death in the 1990s. “he constantly sought to link art to life by means of colour and design.” this exhibition is on at malmo konsthall until the 21st of august, definitely worth a look!
