THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE – ART+CULTURE: Banksy in London!

Show runs from April 23rd-May 16th @ Andipa Gallery: London

This weekend’s art+culture pick comes to us from London and features UK’s leading urban artist, Banksy. From April 23rd through May 16th, Andipa Gallery presents 20 original works on canvas, pallet and steel. Measuring fourteen feet (4 meters) in length, Are You Using That Chair (above) will take center stage and is the largest canvas by Banksy to have come onto the market. This remix of Edward Hopper's 1942 masterpiece "Nighthawks" is an iconic example of why Banksy is one of the freshest artistic minds around.

Andipa was the first gallery to put on a major exhibition of Banksy’s work in the secondary market, showcasing one of the largest collections of the artist’s work. Over 25,000 people visited the gallery during the exhibition in 2008 to view one of the most extensive private surveys of the artist’s work brought together in recent years.

“Banksy continues to defy the establishment with poignant commentary through his street work. He continues to evolve and adapt as an artist, as we saw with his response to the New Orleans anniversary and his New York Village Pet Store creations last year. He’s always one step ahead of the game, reasserting freedom of speech through both his street and his studio works.” -Acoris Andipa, Gallery Director

Cinephile’s Ongoing Project Reveals Color Palettes Found in Famous Films

Fantastic cinematography can make a film unforgettable. When done well, it’s like every still frame is a work of art.

Graphic designer Ruby Radulescu demonstrates the importance of a movie’s color spectrum in a fascinating series called Movies in Color. The premise is simple: she creates detailed color palettes based on a frame of a famous film.
