The open stare of child can sometimes feel uncomfortably direct. The eyes express an ambiguous intention alternating between curiosity, fascination, vacancy, or perhaps even glaring animus. It is even more disquieting when you find a work of art staring back at you in that lifelike manner. In a peculiar inversion, the eyes of the subject looks fixedly outward from the canvas, in turn transforming the viewer into the object of its gaze. What a fascinating interaction this creates, a mutual connection that blurs that boundary between the beholder and the work of art.
Street art has come a long way from its gritty beginnings in the 1970s and 1980s. It was a form of open rebellion, reflecting an innate instinct to challenge authority. Its success in redefining public perception of art has changed its own nature. What has once sprouted from the streets has now made its way into gallery spaces, testifying to the increasingly permeable boundary between the two spaces. Transcending limits of place, street art in its evolution still retains its spirit of rebellion, provocation and social commentary. It connects us to a larger world when many of us have been walled off from the outside. We’ve selected highlights to bring the art from the streets to your walls, including works by Banksy, Invader, Pure Evil, Vhils and Jerkface.
Characters from cartoons and animation series are totems of childhood memory. Works that tap into what literature professor Svetlana Boym describes as “a romance with one’s own fantasy” rebel against the conventional tread of time, history and progress. This preoccupation recurs time and again in the works of Takashi Murakami, Jerkface, KAWS and Daniel Arsham. However, in these iterations, our beloved figures of childhood undergo distortion as they are brought back from the past and projected upon the present and future.
These selection of photographic offer a fascinating glimpse into the past. From important historical moments and cinematic icon to provocative portraits and abstract images, these selections are as distinctive as the photographers who made them.
Skateboard decks might be the perfect canvas for artists to express the character and dynamism of contemporary culture. Artists see in these curved planks of wood a medium that is accessible, playful and open to limitless possibilities. For collectors, these are approachable contemporary art objects for the home, colorful triptychs to be displayed on walls or even converted to furniture pieces.
Artists such as KAWS, Yayoi Kusama, Daniel Arsham, Takeshi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara and Be@rbrick have long been blurring the lines between art and luxury. Not necessarily just objets d'art to be displayed carefully in the home, fine art can also serve as functional objects to be worn or carried.
