Mr Penfold is an artist from London that has a very unique and recognizable style. We currently have a couple of projects in the works with Penfold, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here are a few snaps of some recent outdoor fun he’s been having. More on Mr Penfold here.
When you see people you know producing something insanely big and incredibly supportive of our creative community, we get both inspired and proud. It’s not an easy thing to take a giant leap into the conference world, but it makes it easier when you are doing it for the right reasons, and have some of the most talented people in the world as your speakers.
Timba Smits, Greg Beer and Gordon Shaw are the super team that have created Kaleidoscope Festival in London.
They need your help to kick start the project and are on the lookout for anything from $10 to $10,000. Every little bit counts. Even if’s just to spread the word. This will be a great event and something we are 100% behind.

Always innovative and inspiring, Los Angeles based artist Geoff McFetridge recently opened his latest solo exhibition titled ‘Around Us & Between Us’ at Ivory and Black in London.
Geoff created a series of 10 new acrylic paintings on canvas in his distinctive and reductive style, giving each different subject the same treatment and refinery. In the artist’s own words: “Images are central to my painting. The images are varied, while my treatment of them is very consistent. The imagery is refined to a point of anonymous functionality. The paintings are meant to feel as if they were pulled directly from the lexicon. I paint some things because they are things that I have seen, but more importantly, I believe they are things that the viewer has seen. I am painting from life, but not life purely found in the landscape, but the also psychological, mediated, and transcendental world that infects our consciousness.”

As we pointed out recently here, Numskull has just returned home from a trip to London, were he exhibited and painted a few walls. Turns out, he also got together with recent collaborator AnyForty to make a video of the wall he painted in Hackney Wick.
Numskull has posted a few bits and bobs from his recent trip to London. Check out some photos here, and also at his contributor blog on the Acclaim website here.
RONE has just come home from a recent trip to London and Paris where he was painting a couple of walls and exhibiting with Zero Cool, alongside Tom French. Check out some photos of the walls below, and see more photos from his trip here and here.
Zero Cool Gallery definitely has a taste for Australian talent and it seems that they’re not slowing down. Having previously presented shows by Meggs, Ben Frost and Numskull, this month Zero Cool London are showcasing one of Australia’s most exciting artists, Rone (alongside Tom French). More details below.

Joint London Exhibition

April 2012 will see two of the most exciting artist to emerge in recent year’s RONE (AUS) and Tom French (UK) link up to put on a joint show with Zero Cool Gallery.
Rone’s posters are some of the most iconic in Australia, hiding under overpasses throughout Melbourne. He is renowned for the stylised images of ‘girls’ faces – it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that he has had more posters in Melbourne’s streets than any other artist in the city’s history.
Tom French progresses his distinctive skull images, with the addition of previously unseen oil paintings, to be shown alongside his characteristic charcoal pieces. These new works combine photorealism, abstraction and surrealism with a suggestive narrative, treading the fine line between the beautiful and the unsettling, focusing on the reflection of the conscious and subconscious mind.
