Opening Photos: Boxi at Lazarides Rathbone LondonJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 03 Aug 2011
The Lazarides Rathbone space is always showing a good exhibition, and there newest, Time Of the Signs, features some hyperrealist paintings by Boxi. Our London correspondent, Butterfly, made it out to the opening for some photos of the work and space.
As the gallery notes, "Lazarides Gallery is proud to present the UK’s first exhibition of hyperrealist painter, Boxi. Utilising both the streets and gallery walls as his canvas, the artist is a master of the stencil turning away from their traditional anarchist use to challenge the norm through boldly heightened realistic figures. With fear and its manipulation as the underlying theme, his art channels a deeply disturbing voyeuristic experience for the viewer playing with spatial perception of the surrouding environment."
