BANKSY PLEASE LOVE ME

I have uploaded some photos onto the artbleat flickr from the Please Love Me -10 Years of Banksy show in Covent Garden, London.
You need to maybe go along if you are local and make your own mind up about this show, for me it was a chance to see in the flesh some of the work I had only seen in books or on websites, and is now in private hands hidden away.
Worth the entrance fee if nothing else.
Please Love Me is on show at The Flower Cellars, WC2E 7BN and will run until Saturday 25th July. It is open from 10.00am – 8.00pm and is free entry.

GUSTAVO ORTIZ AT PURE EVIL

Metamorphosis is a solo-show by Gustavo Ortiz, opening tonight at the Pure Evil Gallery in London.
The beautifully written press release is here to enjoy:
"Influenced by colonial art as well as native indigenous artistic practices, Gustavo Ortiz’s paintings are distinctly Latin American in their hybrid blend of both European and South American heritage. Using collage as his primary medium, Ortiz combines the whimsical elements of Na├»ve art with the unexpected juxtapositions of Surrealism – creating a wonderful atmosphere of surprise, charm, and simplicity.
Metamorphosis is the artist’s fist solo-show outside Argentina. He explains the show as "A careful description of the world, when our human prototypes went through a complete change of physical form and substance..."
The viewer will be taken on a journey through Ortiz’s bold universe populated by disproportionate human figures, animals, and objects, that tightly occupy reduced imaginary landscapes. While Ortiz’s paintings draw on the native myths and legends of Latin America, they also posses a decorative quality and tactile texture of the compositions that resonate with traces of indigenous art and craft.
“The strong use of colour and the patterns of clearly defined shapes afforded by the medium of collage give an air of childlike naivety and understated humour to my paintings which offer narratives of the wonder and enchantment of human experience.” states Gustavo Ortiz."
Got all that? Ok then I will see you down there, with any luck I hope to have some images up on the artbleat flickr later tonight
