STREET ART OR JUST PART OF THE STREET? SCENES FROM A (DISFIGURED?) WALL…

Art of the street or only part of the street? Is street art illegal? Is street art vandalism? Yes, these are the usual questions when we see some writings on public (or private) spaces… Here, in the pics, some details from the dock situated in Lenno, on Lake Como shore (Italy). Free art or vandal act? Pop art or just a disfigured wall? Everybody have their answers. But some colors and shapes are really interesting… (Isn’t it?)

LONDON: ART GOES TO TUBE STATION

  

Following on from the success of ‘Art Below Regents Park during ‘Frieze season’ just 12 weeks ago, Art Below are proud to present ‘Art of Angel’, which sees the transformation of the walkway at Angel Tube Station into a public art gallery for the whole of this month. Billboard space normally used for advertising is now featuring a mix of urban and contemporary art with a diverse range of techniques and influences by artists from around the globe.

On the 19th January Art Below are launching a 4 day exhibition of the artists original work at The Candid Arts Trust, a Victorian warehouse with over 6,500 sq ft of exhibition space, located directly behind Angel station, and just  5 minutes walk from The  London Art Fair at the Business Design Centre (18 – 22nd Jan).

Over the 4 day exhibition Art Below will be staging ‘live painting performances’ on a large scale by acclaimed artists including Inkie, Johan Andersson, and Johan Wahlstrom giving the visiting public an intriguing insight into the creative process and techniques involved in their work.

 As well as photography and painting there will also be sculptural work by Schoony and projected video work by Eleanor Lindsay Fynn and Open Prize winner Sidsel Christensen represented by The Open Gallery. Entry is free to the public.  10 am – 6pm, Thursday to Saturday. 10 am – 4pm on Sunday.
