We stumbled across the great works of Ghent, Belgium-based Gideon Kiefer today, who draws fantastic scenes inside book cover jackets. Each work is constructed with pencil, gouache and ballpoint pen. His work will be on display at Drawing Now Paris, which you can visit March 25—30, 2014 at Espace Commines in Paris.

From a distance this “Cheers” painted by L'Outsider in Paris looks like it was painted directly onto this billboard, however each letter is actually a piece of wood set slightly off the surface.

Last week, Zoer and Velvet opened their collaborative exhibition “Perpetuum Mobile” at Openspace Gallery in Paris. These two have been working together on the streets and in the studio, creating beautifully detailed abstract paintings. We compiled some pictures found around the web and it looks like an exceptional exhibition.

We know, we know, Alex Katz may be just a tad too fine art establishment for our daily feed on the site, but I have always found his work to be remarkable every time I see it at one of the large art fairs we visit each year. We are sure to see some of this paintings at the Armory Show this week, but if you happen to be in Paris, Katz has what appears to be a wonderful exhibition, "45 Years of Portraits, 1969—2014," at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac up through July 2014. Go check it.

Parisian public artist, OX, has installed two new pieces in the street of Paris, often interacting with the surrounding environment in different manners. Working predominantly with billboards, OX’s work cleverly and subtly creates various visual effects depending on the location.

One of our favorite covers and features of the past 5 years was the one with London-based illustrator and designer, James Jarvis, and his epic portrait of him running along the Thames River. The aritst just opened and covered the colette store in Paris with his drawings as part of his series, "Spheric Dialogues." Coinciding with the exhibition, Jarvis did a t-shrit with Norse Projects that you can purchase through colette.

Jean Leblanc's work draws inspiration from the Surrealist movement in an upbeat contemporary manner. These illustrations are fraught with dripping faces, pipes, optical illusions and strange chromey surfaces. These are visual mind games, a playful place to spend a little time testing your eye.
