Streets: New Banksy in Dover

Banksy Dover.jpg

As the UK heads towards a general election and Britain prepares to leave the EU, a three-storey version of the European Union flag appeared painted on to a residential building, on Saturday morning, near the ferry port off the A20 in the Kent seaside town of Dover. The mural features a monochrome stencilled image of a man chiseling off one of the 12 stars.  The anonymous artist later confirmed his ownership by publishing two photos of the painting on his Instagram feed and website.

London: Hypnagogia By ROA

Hypnagogia By ROA

After portraying large scale monochrome animals in London’s city streets and on derelict buildings all over the world, Belgium artist ROA returns to London for a solo show titled ‘Hypnagogia’ at Stolenspace. The exhibition is held in two spaces, featuring installation work & originals on recycled found-objects, as well as outdoor work across east London.

The title of the show refers to the transitional state between sleeping and awake. ROA explores the ‘interstate’ with his portrayals of sleeping animals, whilst quietly around us the world awakens from a long winter, and the creatures he depicts experience a period of seasonal transition.  Interaction plays also a significant part in the artworks as moving panels or drawers reveal another side of the animals, whether an half skeleton or part organ dissection.
