Thanks to everyone who has been commenting on the blog or sending me invites to exhibition. Sorry that I haven’t been able to see all the exhibitions that I have been invited to. Here is some news from my inbox about some artists that I have mentioned in this blog.

Alisa Teletovic has a painting featured in House and Garden magazine (MAY 2008 on p.71) See my interview with Alisa Teletovic. The painting is one of many illustrating the article, “Picture this”, by Betty Baboujon. The article is the consumer’s perspective of buying original medium-priced art from online art galleries.

Melbourne-based sculptor Daniel Dorall is crossing the Tasman to exhibiting Lemmings at The Kiosk/The Physics Room in Christchurch, New Zealand. The sculpture series Lemmings was previously exhibited at Mailbox 141

In my review of Lemmings I wrote:  The small space perfectly suits Daniel Dorall’s miniatures and he has used the separate mailboxes like panels in a comic strip. Soldiers walk through the grass on increasingly tall plinths with Dorall’s typical architectural foundation layout. In the final panel they fall down a pit with other dead soldiers. There is a red cross amongst the subterranean labyrinthine complex connected to the pit but none of the soldiers have made it, not even close.” Read my interview with Daniel Dorall

I’m not sure what to do about the viral advertising from Adidas; I was taken in by the humor, I did update my posting as soon as I became aware that the Zero-Tag campaign is advertising. Kano172 posted an excellent comment on my posting, Lex Injusta – please read it. Boycotting Adidas would be an appropriate response to their exploitation of the current popularity of street art. There is a lot of commercial use of street art, some of it by the artists themselves, some in respectful commercial partnership that benefits the artist, and the worst that simply exploits street artists.
