A LAZARIDES GALLERY Group Show Featuring the artwork of Antony Micallef, JR, Conor Harrington & Vhils
June 9 – June 27, 2010
Lazarides LA is proud to introduce, EuroTrash: a stellar line up of some of the hottest European artists around.
Hailing from France, JR will bring his unsurpassed, unique vision to Beverley Hills. Immersing himself within cultures where struggle and conflict are rife, he presents his monochromatic photographs, often over 20 feet high on unconventional exhibiting arena’s to highlight humanist matters that are often overlooked.
Cork born painter Conor Harrington goes against the grain of the fast pace of graffiti art preferring to opt for the slower process of oil painting yet never forgetting his on the street roots. Interested in opposing elements, illusion of power and the emotional side of masculinity, soldiers and conquerors exist within colorful abstract landscapes.
The world portrayed by Antony Micallef is one of contradictions as Barbie becomes the Virgin Mary adorned with a Chanel necklace and cutesy paraphernalia, Angel’s wield guns and Soldiers wear flower power printed uniforms.
Portuguese artist Vhils aka Alexandre Farto is the youngest artist on Lazarides books. Working with manipulating surfaces, whether it is the brick façade of buildings with masonry equipment or layered fly posters that he peels away, he transforms these varying planes to reveal mystifying, striking portraits that explore a city’s dimensions.
