If you live or on holiday in Amsterdam, you have one good reason to go and visit the exhibition “Closet Eccentric” by Matthew Knight at Gogallery.
A solo exhibition by Irish artist Matthew Knight (UK based). If your Art knowledge and love comes from Comics, especially from the Belgian school, then you cannot miss this exhibition.
Imagine plunging back in your childhood comics whilst high on LSD! Your heroes are deformed and their world has a psychedelic twist… It is the world according to Matthew Knight: Lego, Islamic art, Tintin and Asterix are the main source of inspiration for his latest pieces.
Matthew Knight has worked continuously for the last 3 months to make this amazing show possible.
About 20 artworks are created on canvasses, wood, old comic books and other found objects.”
The exhibition is on display until January 20th 2013 at Gogallery, Amsterdam

A much awaited exhibition opened in London at the Pure Evil Gallery, 108 Leonard Street: ‘Pop Lives, Pagan Hearts’ by CopyRight. The Bristol based artist is considered by many as “ultra talented” and following his appearance in “The Apprentice” has gained a larger audience than the ‘Urban Art aficionados’.
CopyRight’s technique evolves in the right direction and besides stencils, screenprint and “decoupes”,the artist is now using neon lights and stained glass to experiment.
CopyRight’s style and theme has not changed much though and one can criticise the repetitive use of female faces, butterflies and birds, bold words and decorative patterns…we love it though and a few pieces are worth the tag price.
Finearte has a beautiful “Precious Damage” by CopyRight for sale.
There was a day when instinct and talent allowed hobbyists to find great buys for a song at art auctions, but times have changed.
