While working as a projectionist in a porn cinema in Central London during the 1980s, Bob Mazzer began photographing on the tube during his daily commute, creating irresistibly joyous pictures alive with humor and humanity. "Every day I traveled to King's Cross and back. Coming home late at night, it was like a party and I felt like the tube was mine and I was there to take the pictures” recalls Mazzer.

Japan-born, London-based artist Christian Hidaka's paintings generally focus on three types of space: deserts, mountains and caves. His images tend to "alienate themselves from traditional modes of landscape depiction: without a homely place of reference the viewer is left to wander in an alien world to explore possibility rather than impossibility."

Paradise Row is pleased to present Sticks & Drones, the solo UK debut and exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Eric Yahnker.

It seems about right. We noticed on April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer's Instagram that he did a t-shirt for DC Shoes and Pick Me Up 2014, one of the best if not THE BEST graphic arts festivals in the world. And what seems right about it is that we learned about Rementer's work at the festival a few years back. Pick Me Up is held annually at the Somerset House in London, and basically get the right people together to show the right kind of graphic and illustrative and design arts.
