Kenny Scharf

Opening: Feb 26

Colette, Paris (Concept Store)

213 rue Saint-Honoré
, Paris

colette.fr

This February, Kenny Scharf brings new works to Colette‘s concept store in Paris. His work contains a lot of references to popular culture, television especially, while exuding an artificial and oddly happy feel from the bright colors. He often uses popular cartoons, for example the Flintstones or the Jetsons in his work. Read more about the exhibition after the jump.

Cryptation is the name of the exhibition announced for the February 27 at the Swiss street artKolly Gallery in Zurich.

Situated in the cosmopolitan city of Zurich, the street art gallery will be inaugurated with the JonOne show, and we hope to see the graffiti movement thrive in this new and welcome space.

Todd James

Supernatural

Opening: Feb 27

Sandra Gering Inc

14 East 63rd Street
New York

For this exhibition, Todd James features his women: a colorful cast of warriors, sunbathers, sorcerers and girlfriends that have populated his work from its earliest years through today. Sometimes animated, sometimes relaxed, usually scantily clad and almost always humorous, these characters have proved to be emotional touchstones in a narrative that has balanced comedy and tragedy since the beginning of the artist’s career. The paintings and drawings are laced with metaphor and do not shy away from off-color humor.

STeW

Welcome on Bird

Opening: March 1

Gallery Daeppen

Müllheimerstrasse 144, Basel

gallery-daeppen.com

With the central image being the samurai, the heroic warrior in Japanese culture, the illustrations of STeW, the street artist, take us to another land. Here we see this central figure represented in black and white and sometimes with a splash of color emanating from his face. Fish scales, waves, and other iconic symbols that remind us of ancient Japanese etchings are eminent as he pays homage to the works by the great Japanese artists, e.g. Hiroshige, Hokusai, and Kuniyoshi.
