Dan Voinea "A Momentary Rise of Reason" @ Beers.Lambert Contemporary, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 26, 2013
One of our favorite painters that we have learned about over the past year is Romanian artist Dan Voinea, who mixes both a classical realist style with an almost performance like character connstruction. Voinea just opened a solo show, A Momentary Rise of Reason, at Beers.Lambert Contemporary in London. As the gallery notes, " Yet while technically realistic and anatomically correctly proportioned, the works are characterized as much by their apparent lack of realism: their fantastical tendencies, collapsing or nondescript environments and preference for magic realist narratives.

Six large inflatable sculptures currently on display at M+Museum in Hong Kong

Street Art // Friday, April 26, 2013
Los Angeles-based artist, Paul McCarthy, just took a giant poop in Hong Kong so to speak, but this wasn’t the first time this had happened, just the most recent. Back in 2008, the same ““Complex Pile” was installed in Switzerland and in a gust of wind took off bringing down a power line, breaking a greenhouse window, and smashed a window at a children’s home (We hope The Onion did something with this at some point).The outdoor sculpture park at the M+Museum in the West Kowloon district of Hong Kong is currently exhibiting this sculpture along with six other large inflatable sculptures by artists Cao Fei, Tam Wai Ping, Jeremy Delle, and Choi Jeong Hwa.
