Remember the Coke Moss print by K-GUY that caused such a frenzy last year ? It was auctioned off on Ebay – and it sold for over AUD $5,000. Due to the overwhelming response to this print, the artist has now produced a stunning new version – with a twist. Coke Moss Zero Kate -is a new ‘size zero” version. Produced in 3 colours – GOLD, SILVER or BRONZE on metallic paper. Each colour edition is only 25, and is signed by the artist and there are a few available to release. All 3 versions have been beautifully framed and will be released ONLINE ONLY this Thursday May 6th , 2010 at midday (sydney time ) at www.urbanuprising.bigcartel.com EDITION: 25 of each colour SIZE: 680mm x 680mm, image size 540mm x 540mm DESCRIPTION: 4 colour screen print with varnish on 300gsm metallic GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE NOTES: signed/stamped/numbered by the artist Country: United Kingdom Date of birth: 1968 Over the past few of years K-Guy has decorated the streets of London with his hard edged graphic style, often using discarded trash and found objects as the basis or medium of his work. He has brought a poignant, relevant and thought-provoking slant to the street art scene making incisive observations and visual comments about life in the 21st century. His style is hard to pinpoint as he uses a mix of stencil spray paint, freehand painting, wheat pasting and silkscreen to montage and layer up his work. He often purposefully degrades his images to fit into the urban spectrum, experimenting with making imagery as close as possible to original pieces found in the streets. Sticking two fingers firmly up at the culturally elite he likes nothing more than to expose society’s dysfunction and the things people automatically sweep under the grey matter. He first came to the urban art world’s attention back in August 07 when he was part of the Found exhibition at the Leonard Street Gallery and sold out his TR*ASH originals on preview night. Since then he has gained some well deserved recognition, an active following and has shown his work by invitation at various urban art exhibitions. K-Guy’s work was recently included in the Dreweatts Urban Art Auction and more recently he received world wide media coverage for his memorial shrine installation outside the Bank of England, Threadneedle Street.

SALONE MILAN 2019
Dedece Skyscraper Project
Reflecting on the state of affairs in design and prompting a consideration of the meanings that hide behind a display, ‘A Search Behind Appearances’ by Hella Jongerius and Louise Schouwenberg proposed that we should move beyond commercial success, beyond style differences and beyond personal taste.
Resulting in a range of visual metaphors, ‘A Search Behind Appearances’ took over the famous La Rinascente department store’s eight Piazza Duomo facing windows during the Salone.
Milan, a city in constant transformation, which has seen its skyline changed, projected into the future but able to preserve its history, a place where meetings and promises take place, capable to attract energies and investments.
Milan has now been Salone Internazionale del Mobile’s HQ’s for 52 years
“The Feast of Trimalchio /2009″ by AES+F , is a nine- channel animation of over 75,000 photographs. With panoramic, immersive, sumptuous colour and a loud symphonic soundtrack, it depicts a contemporary version of a famous scene from Petronius’s Satyricon. In this neo-Brechtian twenty-first-century version, an orgy of consumerism reflects on the contemporary state of both Russia and the world.”
