Last weekend to check out Taipei artist NOE246’s show at Hatos Bar in Tokyo. For the last 5 or 6 years NOE246 stickers have been a constant while walking home from the train station in Tokyo.  I love the coverage.  He is everywhere.  My pals at Hatos always have killer shows and you shouldn’t miss this one.  The installation looks fantastic, especially the toilet.

LEVALET – One step forward, two steps back

“One step forward, two steps back” with Levalet opens December 12th at the Montana Gallery in Barcelona, Spain.  Levalet’s work has such a fantastic sense of humor.  Hand drawn then turned into wheat pastes on the street.  Once the drawings are installed in the streets they take on a completely different meaning due to the way they interact with the environment.  For this show the work has to interact with objects in an interior space.  Exhibition runs December 14 to February 6, 2016.  Charles is also featured in the upcoming “Tall Trees of Paris” book.
