Australian street artist RONE is back in London for his first UK solo exhibition entitled 'Wallflower' at London’s StolenSpace Gallery opening today. We managed to stop by to bring you this exclusive preview. Best known for his unique depiction of beauty through his portraits of women, Rone’s show includes a stunning range of new works that he especially created for the show. The exhibition features a mix of paintings on canvas with some using wooden shipping crates as a backdrop. The transparency of the paintings based on a female muse surrounded by flowers reminds us of the short-lived nature of what we conventionally consider beautiful, sometimes blooming and dying in just a day. Continue reading for more images and make sure you stop by East London, the show runs until Early May at StolenSpace, 17 Osborn Street.

street art Montreal artist Roadsworth (previously) continues to make his mark on the streets of Montreal by introducing elements of wildlife and humor onto an asphalt canvas. In his latest pieces we see flocks of geese swooping down tree-lined streets and schools of sardines move with the flow of pedestrian traffic (or end up wedged inside a tin can), unexpected symbols against an urban backdrop. This year marks a decade since Roadsworth was charged with 53 counts of public mischief, after which he received considerable public support and was let go with a slap on the wrist. Since then the artist has created artwork for municipalities, exhibitions, and arts festivals around the world. You can see much more on his website, and he also has a book.

Practical Creativity by Ken C. Judd Practical Creativity goes big: House Painting and Garden Design I have been painting houses, interior and exterior, for over 25 years. I'm great with color consultation if you desire, and also happy to paint whatever you have chosen yourself. I'm a craftsman as well an artist - fast and professional. Brooklyn Street Art - ...loves you more every day. : Brooklyn Street Art Posted on April 7, 2014 “After photographing in the mosh pits for awhile I began to get familiar with patterns in the music. Eventually it got to the point where I could sense the moment coming when things would really cut loose and go berserk,” says painter Dan Witz about his process and method for catching the moment when the roiling mass of hardcore music fans hit the perfect state of frenzy. “NY Hardcore Paintings”, opening this past Saturday night and on view currently at The Jonathan Levine gallery in Chelsea, presents Witz with his new body of convulsing bodies and to say they are a revelation is only part of the story. When we saw his first mosh pit paintings a few years ago we were struck by the raw thrilling chaotic energy and calculated abandon in them – and reminded of many such nights in the 80s and 90s in lower Manhattan when we also joined in the fray.

Artist milla nuzzoli About milla nuzzoli The image directory is represented by the world that surrounds me, from its multiple facets, interpreted through the filter of emotion. Through the image I opened a window on the flow of feelings, memories. The painting is the medium that allows me to process this alchemical process, is the space in which the color and shape are open to endless reading images depicted with oil paints, pastels, charcoal, watercolors. My painting, while maintaining an introspective voltage welcomes the dialectic between the abstract and the figurative, the intersection of the personal and symbolic narrative, depicting a moment in its infinite variety of expression, participation of "If", as unique and unrepeatable Act of the creative process. In my works the leitmotif is the nature – individual, dualism that urges continued dialogue between rationality and emotion, figuration and abstraction.
