In the Magazine: Felipe Pantone

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 14, 2015
On a particularly gloomy February day in London, I first met Felipe Pantone at a well-loved legal wall in Shoreditch’s Brick Lane. Having followed his graffiti for many years, I was particularly excited to see him in action, to witness firsthand what tricks might be behind his optical illusions, the kind that only work if they’re perfect. Turns out there were none. He rendered his excruciatingly thin, straight lines almost too easily, stepping back every few minutes, closing one eye and turning his head to the side, a move that inexplicably helps him “see the piece better.” 

Fernando Chamarelli "Secret Code" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 13, 2015
This one should be good.  Brazilian designer, illustrator and artist Fernando Chamarelli will open a new solo show, Secret Code, at Thinkspace on August 15, the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. We have been following his progress on Instagram as he has set up the show, and this looks like a solid one. Lots of colors, lots of details, lots hybrid human-creatures, go get it. 

“L'Erba Cativa (l'an mor mai)”: A Collective performance directed by Andreco

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 13, 2015
“L'erba Cativa (l'an mor mai)” is a collective performance that draws inspiration from some timeless images and words, timeless because of their subversive power. These come from Aeschylus's Oresteia, and especially from the figures of the Furious Erinyes, “those baleful children of the night” that symbolize the impossibility of taming wild nature. Rebellious figures difficult to categorize. Presences as enigmatic and mysterious as the performers of the parade that burst into the Santarcangelo Festival 2015, on Saturday July 18th.

Liz West's Mirrored Rainbow Room

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 13, 2015
Liz West's light installation comprises a purpose-built 10m x 5m room containing 250 coloured fluorescent tubes combined with ‘infinity’ mirrors. Titled An Additive Mix, it takes the principle that white light is composed of different colours of the spectrum (additive colours) and places people in the centre of the phenomenon; saturating them in individual hues that collectively create an intense white glow in a seemingly endless space.
