As we reported yesterday on the site, NYC-based Dan Witz, who has been a pillar of street art over the past 30 years, just opened a brand new exhibtion, Prisoners 2012-13 at Lazarides in London. Witz' debut at Lazarides features his paintings from both his Prisoner and now signature Mosh Pit series. Our London correspondent, Butterfly, took photos at the opening last night in London. The gallery noted that Witz has been dispersing his unique stamp on the streets of London by painting one of his prisoners' image onto phone boxes.

One of our favorite contemporary artists, Vhils, just opened a new exhibition, Devoid, at Lazarides' Rathbone space in London. The work focuses on the "individual in relation to the overpowering force of urban environments. Working with the city as the prime material, Vhils has used what the urban environment offers in its most derelict spaces as both a location and as a source for materials from wood scraps to rusty metal, discarded billboards and other debris produced by its inhabitants."

We were very excited to see the title of Ian Francis' newest exhibition, 10,000 Years From Now. Obviously, his work resonates with this title perfectly. There seems to be this distant future mixed with familiar figurative elements in each Francis painting, a surreal, mystical experience that has a foundation of contemporary. Francis' latest body of work examines the "fragility of this lifetime in contrast to geological timescales."

London correspondent Butterfly made it out to the highly-anticipated (and we got excited right after our studio visit with Mr. Harrington last month) solo exhibition of Conor Harrington, Dead Meat, that opened at Lazarides Gallery last night. The Irish-born, London-based artist presented 8 large-scale canvases and 24 small studies that reference a "18th-century dinner party, the height of Europe's power and draws comparisons with Contemporary society."

Faile’s newest work at Lazarides Gallery titled Fragments of Faile is refreshingly different and may be a step in a new direction? The paintings on display appear to have a stronger painterly esthetic, while the imagery more simple. The show stays up until, December, 3rd if you find yourself in London.

The show will feature "free-thinking and colourful retro-futurist scenes blighted by contemporary intruders, well-tailored men seemingly up to no good, made all the more intimidating and inhuman by their balaclavas."
