This new book produced by French publisher Funny Bones Editions proposes a vivid journey through “the city of lights”, Paris. Seen through the lens of renowned Japanese photographer Takehiko Nakafuji, Paris is presented through black and white photographs with intense contrasts and texture that it is difficult to date the whole project (details of recent street art pieces can help).

KENNY SCHARF EXHIBITION AT COLETTE UNTIL APRIL 5.
This complete new volume covers Scharf’s illustrious career and his experiences and activities in the downtown art scene. His work is instantly recognizable, with idiosyncratic cartoon creatures popping up in the oddest of places: in paintings, on functional objects, or piled up on top of each other to form huge totem-poles.

Since 2002 Rob Ryan has been working principally within the paper cutting medium. Although he views himself first and always as a fine artist his intricate papercut work adapts itself readily to screenprinting which can be easily transferred to ceramics, fabrics, lasercutting and other surfaces. He has collaborated with Paul Smith, Liberty of London, Tatty Devine and Vogue along with many other established companies. His work, often consisting of whimsical figures paired with sentimental, grave, honest and occasionally humorous pieces of writing he readily admits are autobiographical.
