Recto Verso

Tall Trees of Paris artist Levalet has a show with Zenoy opening this Thursday February 4th in Paris at Galerie Geraldine Zberro.  This show represents a collaboration between the new school street art scene with Levalet and the old school with Zenoy.  The grey scale of Levalet juxtaposed against the colorful lettering of Zenoy should make for a unique show.

GLOOM – Koichiro Takagi

I found GLOOM from Hellion alumni Koichiro Takagi in my mailbox this week.  The book is packed with images of Koichiro’s work and bilingual text that tracks his career to date.  A little late for Christmas but well worth picking up in the new year.
