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.
“Borah”, new work from SAL opening December 19th at Hatos Bar in Tokyo. This new series of work is Sal’s first experimentation with oil paint. The show closes December 25th. Sal is also featured in the “Tall Trees of Tokyo” book and will be showing at Hellion next year.

Martes Bathori has been contributing artwork and comics to the French/Belgium almanach Soldes for the past 4 years.

“Circular” is the inaugural exhibition at Quintal in Rio de Janeiro. The show features Antonio Bokel, João Sánchez, Mateu Velasco, Marcelo Macedo and Pedro Sánchez. Both Mateu and Marcelo are Hellion and Forest For The Trees alumni. The space is an incubator for new and experimental art ideas that are free from government sponsorship and different than what can be found in traditional commercial galleries. Show opens Saturday December 12th.
