"I am drawn to the incongruous narrative in figuration. My works aspire to polarize the stability of what is at first perceived to be harmless or sweet but in reality turns out to be pathetically desperate or tragic or vice versa. A dark disillusioned romanticism pervades throughout...(along with) confrontational themes, such as paranoia, disappointment, expectation, grief, mistrust and other upbeat reflections of our times.

"It is in this state of reflection, this 'grey area' of ambiguity and blurred truth that I have found myself in, a place where trends and crashes in the market aggressively threaten and pressurize social behavior. Making life-sized figures that articulate this uncertainty is a way for me to come to terms with the phrase 'of our time'."

- Boxi

BARRY McGEE / ED TEMPLETON / RAYMOND PETTIBON GROUP EXHIBITION

Barry McGeeEd Templeton and Raymond Pettibon are pioneers and icons of the contemporary urban art movement. Their work can be found in the collections of major museums and has been shown at large exhibitions and biennales worldwide, but all three have repeatedly emphasised their roots in youth subculture – in the worlds of skateboarding, graffiti, punk and hip-hop.
These three sought-after artists are brought together by curator Aaron Rose, whose urban art documentary Beautiful Losers is currently touring the world, in the intimate atmosphere of Berlins Circleculture Gallery.


CIRCLECULTURE GALLERY, GIPSSTR. 11, 10119 BERLIN
VERNISSAGE: 9TH APRIL 2009, 7 PM
EXHIBITION: 10TH APRIL TO 30TH MAY 2009
TUESDAY TO SATURDAY, 2 PM – 6 PM

Going for the vintage feel..





London Times magazine said, “That she has buckets more vision than credentials matters not, it helps to retain the rawness and individuality of her eye. She is uncertain and dizzy – and very capable.” "Her photographs reveal a keen eye for the shining and the bizarre, a bit Annie Leibovitz, a bit Diane Arbus."- The Los Angeles Times

Hopes Are High in The Gulf Region

On March 27th, Hong Kong's The Standard reported the growing interest of art collecting in the Gulf Region. With an increase in International collectors attending the fair, Middle East collectors are more exposed to and confident in purchasing in arts from different parts of the world. Aside from antiquities, these buyers, especially the ruling families are expanding their horizons and developing new tastes and variations for their private collections. Individuals, families and representatives from different organizations are looking for opportunities other than from existing talent from the Gulf region. As discussed, Asian art seems to be getting special attention from this expanding market.

I Heart Cédric Klapisch




Writer and director Cédric Klapisch produced several great films, but I believe that these tw movies are quite memorable and should be added to your must watch list. Both movies draw on the different yet interconnected lives of a group of students from all over Europe who meet in Barcelona to study, have fun and live the life they dream of. Klapisch focuses on highlighting the meaning of relationships between friends, lovers, and strangers in the context of cultural assimilation. It is fascinating and relatable to what we go through in life: growing up, finding meaning behind freedom and exploring possibilities in life. L'Auberge Espangole and Les Poupée Russes are two very inspirational movies. Remember to watch L'Auberge first because thats where the story begins. Enjoy!

Russia's 310squad







Known as 310squad, they paint the grey buildings and dark streets of Russia with great imagery and yes, color. Lots of the dots and colors. I am sure the baby-boomers wouldn't mind 310squad's art around the country, they draw obvious inspirations and are highly influenced by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. Yay, walking down memory lane. One love.
