London – Todd James ‘Fantasy Island’ @ Lazarides

Todd James - Fantasy Island

New York artist Todd James a.k.a. REAS, is showing his new works at London’s Lazarides. The exhibition entitled Fantasy Island explores the grotesque of socio-political news we receive, between images of war, somali pirates, UN soldiers and scantily-clad females posing on the cover of fashion magazines.

Using vibrant colours, Todd James’ paintings feature an army of multicolored AK47, armed soldiers balancing cup of teas in armchairs, while his oversexualised blonde female portraits are reminiscent of Wesselman.

In parallel to the gallery exhibition, guests could also enjoy his infamous Vandal’s Bedroom recreated in a vintage Chevrolet.

Fantasy Island in Lazarides Gallery runs until 28th May 2015.
