They definitely should create an iPhone app that is called 'Where in the World is Roa?" It seems like the man darts the world and leaves evidence of his black and white animals for the world to enjoy. The Belgian street, public, fine, and installation artist just opened a new solo show at Stolenspace in London, and we went to go check it out last night. Photos after the jump . . .

Last weekend, one of the best booths in all of The Armory Show was Ambach & Rice's show with Eric Yahnker, titled, brilliantly, Party Sub/Sub Party. Yahnker, our May 2011 cover artist, filled the booth with his incredibly rendered pop-culture commentary, and also was able to obtain signed baseballs from Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, and Justin Bieber.

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."

We stopped by the opening of Miss You, an exhibition of new works by the Brazilian twins Os Gemeos at Prism Gallery this past weekend. This stunning exhibition engulfs the entire gallery top to bottom, painting the whole gallery even the floors and ceiling. There are several installations, including a few interactive ones and a quite a few larger scale paintings. This is definitely an exhibition not to miss.
