Got my arse down to StolenSpace at the weekend to check out their new show "Disstopia" by London-based artist Ronzo. I'd come across his graffiti a fair few times but was honestly blown away by the effort and imagination put into this show. From canvases and prints, to polystone gargoyles and doodles on paper.

Quite apart from the canvases that were massive, featuring all manner of weird and wonderful characters that inhabit a strange post-apocalyptic London, his 3-d boxed 'canvases' stole the show. As seen in the pics below these weren't small pieces so obviously took a lot of work. They each had comedic elements...the alien in Soho with three breasts a la Total Recall, the cockroaches doing graffiti, the submarine crashed through Centrepoint tower and the Gherkin broken into little pieces. Better still the layering of buildings, planes, trains, shop front and characters gave all 3 pieces a real atmosphere while also retaining an element of fun.

    Everybody loves shiny stuff, and now you can customize your platform toys with shiny paint from Montana. In my own experience, Montana has the best range of colors and best application of all the spray brands I've tried.

    What makes great sushi even better? Mochi dessert. But also, a super cute lucky cat mural. Fakir was recently commissioned by Gumi Sushi in France to paint up the front of their restaurant. By combining flat design with aggressive shading, this kitty is 100% Fakir.
