Walker’s first London gallery show in three years, sees this incredibly talented urban artist presenting a fresh new take on his signature portrait style in a show named after a mantra coined by the artist himself; which refers to the creative battle an artist wages to create work in today’s climate in the face of conspiring forces both internal and external.

Erotica // Wednesday, October 22, 2014
It is funny to include these groundbreaking works in an Erotica section, yet looking at it another way, these works pratcially invented the term. From The Courtauld: Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career. Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.

Skarstedt London is delighted to announce Strangers, the first U.K exhibition by American artist Justin Adian. The exhibition will feature a series of new paintings and will coincide with Frieze London. Strangers is a meditation on Adian’s relationship with his works and the transformation that occurs once they have left the familial environment of the studio to venture out in the world: “Once something leaves the studio it changes, kinda moves onto its own life, its own scene.”

'Too Blessed To Be Stressed' entitles the newest body of work by StolenSpace represented artist - Word To Mother. His unmistakable figures sit amongst a landscape of earth tones, pastel shades and flashes of turquoise and fluorescent reds. Repetitive gold leaf triangles are placed amongst subtle, reflective washes, drips and textures to create a metaphoric contrast of the 'appreciation of the understated', versus glorified materialism.
