Californian artist Kelsey Brookes has reinvented psychedelic art for the 21st Century for his UK debut exhibition at The Outsiders.

Antony Micallef returns to Lazarides Rathbone for a UK solo show entitled Happy Deep Inside My Heart.
Micallef says, “My work is like a Disney film that slowly turns into violent pornography, but you don’t really see where the change happens. It’s an ambush to the senses to capture an audience. I want to amalgamate and infuse the figures into a synthetic world. The twisted figures resembling experiments gone wrong from a science lab have somehow walked into our commercials, our glossy magazines; a cocktail of chromatic perversion. The aim is to use color as a decoy to invite the viewer in, to ambush their senses, to give that inner world a sugar-coated, cracked-sweet veneer, hiding the distortion and decay.”
