Ernest Zacharevic rides to Barcelona
The Ernest Zacharevic exhibition “Rock, Paper, Scissors“ will be a unique opportunity to gaze upon portraits and drawings on various materials, and to see different art objects that bear the essence of street life atmosphere. His lovely characters and naive genre scenes take us back to childhood, they make one smile and revisit the feeling of infinite possibility. The Barcelona show is a gallery presentation of the work usually inhabiting streets and open spaces. It will be more than interesting to witness what Ernest Zacharevic has in his pocket when it comes to smaller scale and paper-based media.

We bring you another magnificent piece by one of our favorite duos in street art: Herakut. The 80cm x 60cm ‘swinging dog’ piece is one of Herakut’s mixed media artworks. They create the 3-D swing effect by deconstructing the framed canvas and placing the dog in between the torn canvas pieces. Artistically reoccurring is the pug. Like on many other Herkaut artworks the pug is depicted with children or as in this piece alone. The pug is the central imagery of “Swing”. Characteristic for Herakut they play with the concept of anthropomorphism. Herakut transfer the human ability of grasping ropes onto the pug, giving the animal a childish appearance. The pullover and the party rest do the rest to remind us of a little kid sitting on a swing.

However, these cans have turned out to be more than attractive and they became highly desired collectibles.
