In his solo show “USELESS”, Jaybo Monk takes a closer look at exactly the dissolution of this term, in order to stage familiar objects in a new context. His objects and paintings, presented in the Hamburg branch of the Circle Culture Gallery, are rooted in the Dadaist tradition and on a quest for one thing above all: the poetry of uselessness.
Lokiss just dropped his First Screenprint “Ideology 01″ with Ateliers Fantome today. The 8 color screenprint showcases the French Progressive Pioneers abstract and aggressive style. There is a paper edition with a second special Metal version. You wont want to miss this release if you are a fan of not only Lokiss but also the progressive abstract style of this pioneer.

While the three artists have shown together previously in group shows with other artists, this was the first time the three artists have shown together as a small collective. The stage was set for an interesting mix with each artist bringing their unique and original style to the gallery and spanning three generations of a Graffiti writer's approach to fine art. Jerry Inscoe was born and bred in the early 80's Graffiti culture on the east coast of the US, fast forward to Kofie caming from the 90's era LA Graffiti scene, and CDB emerging as a force to be reckoned with as a writer with a contemporary look at Graffiti in the early 2000's.
The three artists decided to hang their work salon-style to accommodate all the work that needed to be hung. They mixed their work together instead of separating themselves apart, and the result was perfect. With a large wall at the back of the gallery the three artists worked together to create a large sculptural mural than was easily a highlight of the show.

In the run up to our 'Unfolding' show at the David Bloch Gallery last month, we managed to paint a quick collaboration on the wall in front of the old Katoubia Hotel in Guéliz. It was great fun to paint the neighbourhood and drew a lot of interest (and a little help) from the locals who probably thought us crazy to be out painting in the 45ºC heat.
In early May six members of Agents of Change flew to Marrakech for the opening of the group show 'Unfolding' at the David Bloch Gallery
Marrakech appealed to us for two reasons. Firstly it was an opportunity to gain influence from a culture reputed for its excellence in arts and crafts, and although the location is off the 'normal' gallery circuit, they have built a strong reputation for showing quality work by artists who've progressed from a background in graffiti art.
Not wanting to disappoint, we pulled out the stops to produce a show worthy of its reputation and also showcase work by six members of the Agents of Change collective.
