The print will be released in an exclusive limited edition at an event hosted by artrepublic Soho on Thursday 28th July.
It’s also worth mentioning that a small number of these works will be hand finished in gold leaf by the artist. Gorgeous and powerful as always!

Eli Klein Fine Art in NYC is showing Zhang Dali’s fifth exhibition and first solo show at their gallery. The opening is tomorrow night, April 4th. If you’ve never seen Zhang Dali’s work in person I highly recommend seeing it. Pictures don’t do it justice..
Zhang Dali’s New Slogan paintings are an elaboration on his previous series, further developing his interest in the current Chinese zeitgeist. The artist appropriates various Chinese government slogans which are phrases that characterize the sociopolitical climate of mainland China and are plastered around the city of Beijing. Phrases related to the One-Child Policy, industrialization, and national unity are mapped repeatedly onto the faces of various migrant workers which are in turn embellished by a seemingly infinite series of concentric circles.
This exhibition will be on view through May 8, 2011. Zhang Dali will be present for the opening reception on Monday, April 4 from 6 – 9 PM.
My friend Ogi is heading from his home base in Japan to do a show in Hong Kong! His HK debut is a continuation of his exhibition series titled “Idealistically Hypocritical”. The opening night will take place on Wednesday, March 16th, 2011 at Above Second Gallery between 5 pm and midnight for the Hong Kong Art Walk.
“The show will be a part of my ongoing examination of a concept; “Out of the Context Mash-Up.” In my last two exhibitions, I asked over 40 different artists to contribute their works for an installation; “Mash-Up Wall.” However, for this exhibition, I would like to go back to my root as an artist and to showcase solely my drawings, paintings and sculptures, partially because this is my first exhibition in Hong Kong.” – Ogi

Jose Parla has a show coming up at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in NYC called Walls, Diaries, and Paintings– a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist. As a collector for several years now I am excited to see some of his new work.
Walls, Diaries, and Paintings features fifteen new paintings, that chronicle Parlá’s exploration of the diverse places and cultures he has traversed. From Istanbul to Havana, from Tokyo to New York, the colors and textures of the neighborhoods and alleyways have found a forceful and moving resolution in Parlá’s works that are both inspirational and revealing.
A new monograph of José Parlá’s work, Walls, Diaries, and Paintings, will be available upon the exhibition’s opening. Published by Hatje Cantz, it includes essays by Isolde Brielmaier, Greg Tate, & Michael Betancourt. Available here for pre-order for $50.
The show opens with a reception on March 3rd and runs through April 16th. The gallery is located at 505 West 24th Street.
