Paintings by Simon Birch

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 07, 2012

Juxtapoz // Saturday, October 06, 2012
Tonight, Ever Gold Gallery in San Francisco will showcase for the second and last time the work of conceptual artist, Guy Overfelt.

I ART JOBURG: PART 3

Street Art // Friday, October 05, 2012
One thing you notice walking the streets of Johannesburg is everything is hand painted, with vinyl signs having little presence. Espo started another mural that is twice as big as the previous “Stay Up” mural and while they worked away, we walked around. Local artist Faith 47 happened to be putting up work around the corner from where were staying, so we briefly chatted with her.
