ZUMBI AND BELFI
In this unique hybrid of an artist residency and a typical solo exhibition, the up-and-coming British painter Daniel Crews-Chubb was invited to use the Galerist Studio as an artist open studio for two weeks. The works made on-site, alongside recent works brought from London, will be on view concurrently at Galeristâ€™s main space in TepebaĹźÄ± and Galerist Studio, an art space created by Galerist and the Kameleon design store in ĹžiĹźhane.
16 ARTISTS TO WATCH IN 2016 (+ 2)
February 11, 2016, by Steven Zevitas
The needs and priorities of artists are in constant flux. Art historians have attempted to document this flux by identifying a series of seismic shifts in aesthetics and attaching to each its defining characteristics. This practice has provided us with a litany of isms that stretch back centuries. Art history will continue to roll on, but it very well may be that the age of the ism is behind us. Thatâ€™s not to say that there are not, and will not continue to be, clusters of like-minded artists whose combined efforts can generate an aesthetic critical mass that historians are able to delineate. But with instant global communication, the time in which new ideas are disseminated, assimilated, and ultimately disregarded is so compressed that the enterprise has been, at best, reduced to trend spotting.
THE ARTISTS BRINGING THE HEAT TO ART BASEL MIAMI
December, 2015, by Nick Hackworth
Londonâ€™s Vigo Gallery habitually brings standout solo projects to Untitled Fair, having shown US artists Kadar Brock and Isabel Yellin in previous years. This year, proving old-school is the new, new school, Vigo is showing British painter Daniel Crews Chubb. His full-on, vibrant, painterly paintings, repeat the same, archetypal motif â€“ a couple of boldly and naively rendered figures, male and female, locked in an ambiguous relationship and channel the spirit of a panoply of Modernist masters â€“ with Picasso, de Kooning and CoBRA painters, Asger Jorn and Karel Appel all in the mix. Old, new and very contemporary.
