A few weeks ago we took a look at Carl Warner's Bodyscapes, today we look at his Foodscapes! The London-based photographer uses the medium of food for the series, constructing incredibly intricate scenes entirely from fruits, vegetables, break, fish, deli meats and other edible items. Hi interpretations and imagination run wild, creating some incredible "Foodscapes!" Watch a video after the jump...

This August, Tel Aviv-based artist Know Hope makes his solo debut at Lazarides Rathbone with a new exhibition, The Abstract and The Very Real. Addressing the human condition and its collective social existence through a series of unique works and a site-specific installation, the exhibition questions the ubiquitous notion of the "abstract and the very real", the weight and burden of which though universally apparent is often unidentifiable to most.

It look us a second to realize that these landscapes by London-based photographer Carl Warner were far from conventional. Shooting the human forms in his studio and then later placeing them together in Photoshop, Warner has created a very interesting series that examines both our view of ourselves and ourselves in relation to our bodies and fellow humans.

If you happen to get yourself to London in the month of July, there is a good art show to check out: Cleon Peterson, "There Is A War," at London's The Outsiders. "Cleon Peterson's nightmarish tableaux feature scenes of a barbaric holocaust, where might is right and the weak are merely souls with holes for the strong to torment and abuse. Deviance is the norm, and the displaced individual is forced to navigate this wicked world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs."

We are very excited to see that Australian-born, Berlin-based Charlie Isoe (cover artist from April 2010), is back in the exhibition swing. This Friday, June 28, Isoe will open a new solo show, In the Bad Bush, at Lazarides Gallery's Rathbone space in London. As the gallery notes, "After inexplicably vanishing from the art scene for over three years... [Isoe draws] from the isolation of Western Australia to his itinerant youth and lifestyle of abandon, and quickly established himself as a pioneer in his field."

Wish we could be in London to see former Juxtapoz cover artist, James Jarvis, and his new exhibition, Objects in Space. The show will see a new body of original artworks by the London-based illustrator that feature his Sphere character at a number of iconic international skatespots.
Graffiti // Tuesday, June 25, 2013
This dapper, well-off individual whose given name is Kristian Holmes was a notorious graffiti that wrote Vamp and was sentenced to a three-and-a-half year bid last week from the courts in London. The father of two worked as a surveyor making £60,000-a-year. For seven years he relentlessly bombed the south-east of London and clean trains with his simple letters. The courts said he was responsible for £250,000 in damage and once again convicted a graffiti writer to more time than many violent crime offenders receive.

As part of the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, a performance art piece was conducting by a group of artists posing as researchers as they "found" a "beached" whale on the shores of the Thames in Greenwich. The group, Captain Boomer, promptly removed the hyperreal whale and placed it at The Royal Naval College at Cutty Sark through June 29.
