Her drawings have been influenced greatly by textile processes, print-making, architecture and the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi that emphasizes the beauty in that which is transient.

Banksy continues his “New York Residency” creating two new works in the streets, this time both across the East River in Brooklyn. The first painted yesterday, was the image of a broken heart balloon painted in the Red Hook neighborhood. Due to cheap fame or other envious reasons, the heart was “sidebusted” quickly by a repeating Banksy “admirer” as we will call him. The second was marked on a door somewhere in Greenpoint...

A recipient of the 2012 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and a scholar of literature, art semiotics, painting, and sculpture, Brooklyn-based artist Chitra Ganesh is certainly no stranger to the art world and understandably so.

Lazarides Rathbone welcomes Brooklyn based artist Oliver Jeffers for his first London exhibition, Nothing To See Here. This September Jeffers will present a new series of works, which both question and observe modern life and its many conundrums. Referencing familiar 18th and 19th century European landscape and still-life painting, the artist investigates, via themes of censorship and ignorance, the notion that knowledge is power.

Taking a wander around the world wide web this morning, taking notes and checking names, and we stopped at the work of Brooklyn-based, Mexico City-born fine artist and portrait painter Victor Rodriguez. We like the mix of styles and surreal-additions to his portraits, which at first appear to be simple hyperreal depictions but upon closer looks have dream-like, cinematic qualities to them.
