London: Kelsey Brookes – Desires of the Soul

Kelsey Brookes - Desires of the Soul

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

The geometric lines and colours come directly from the hallucinogenic experiences just before the headache.

London: Antony Micallef – Happy Deep Inside My Heart

As featured on Juxtapoz

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.”

Here are some pics from the opening
