"El arte lava del alma el polvo de la vida cotidiana", decía Pablo Picasso. Y qué gran verdad. No hay cosa que esta disciplina no remache, pues, no han sido pocos los que han sanado sus heridas a través de sus diversas formas.

Un perfecto ejemplo de ello es Louis Carreon, un ex presidiario que comenzó a tener contacto con el arte en la cárcel y que se ha convertido en uno de los artistas contemporáneos más influyentes de la actualidad.

HG Contemporary is pleased to host an exhibition of new works by international artist Philip Tsiaras.

In a conceptual sense he believes that each exhibition contains a personal element of surprise.

INTERVIEW: Louis Carreon

Distinct and innovative, artist Louis Carreon is somewhat of a staple when it comes to LA street art.

05/21/2019

While recently signed to Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim and HG Contemporary’s roster, as well as having several A-list celebrity clients, Carreon’s chill demeanor says it all: he makes art for the culture, not the fame. The notoriety comes from being so damn good at it.

Tsiaras's Latest Exhibit Is as Iconic as the People He Painted

On view now through May 31, "Dot Pop Portraits" is the artist's way of mixing portraiture and painting.

05/10/2019

As art mimics life, Philip Tsiaras has taken note. The Greek artist is known for his hand-dotted works, which he says are made up of "particle atoms.” In his latest exhibit, titled Dot Pop Portraits and on display at the HG Contemporary, his pointillist art is front and center, taking the shape of notable figures like Steve Jobs, Jackie O, and John F. Kennedy and Princess Diana. The multi-colored portraits come to resemble a sort of modern-day Roman mosaic, each embodying the personality of the icon it represents with meticulous attention to detail.

Torso by Alberto Bañuelos at Hg Contemporary Madrid

Alberto Bañuelos

04/24/2019

El artista reúne seis esculturas y diez trabajos sobre papel de su producción reciente. Pintura y escultura dialogan en un muestra en la que las aparentes contradicciones entre dureza y suavidad, lo tosco y lo refinado, lo que permanecerá y lo que pasará, resultan no serlo tanto.

Decir Alberto Bañuelos es casi como decir piedra. Durante casi cuatro décadas el artista castellano (Burgos, 23 de noviembre de 1949) afincado largo ha en Madrid ha encontrado en ella y en su afán por domesticarla, comprenderla, penetrarla, el laberinto de un lenguaje. Su A ferida, en Muxía (A Coruña), un gigantesco bloque de granito recorrido por una grieta de arriba abajo frente al Atlántico, en el lugar donde se hundió en noviembre de 2002 el petrolero Prestige, es con sus más de 11 metros de altura y sus 400 toneladas de peso la escultura más grande de España. Y su trabajo con cantos rodados, que secciona, deconstruye y pule, le ha valido ser el primer artista europeo al que se le han abierto las puertas del Museo de Antropología de México por su parecido con las máscaras aztecas.

PHILIPPE HOERLE-GUGGENHEIM IS THE NAME TO KNOW AT BASEL

Fashion Week Daily

30 November, 2018

Art Basel kicks off next week and one of the most important faces on the scene is Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim of HG Contemporary. The Daily will be hosting a dinner with the renowned gallery owner at The Faena to kick off the fair, but first we thought we’d dig a little deeper with the name to know in the art world right now. 

Eduardo Kobra Mural

Renown Brazilian streetartist Kobra painted a mural in collaboration with HG Contemporary gallery above the landmark restaurant Empire Diner on 22nd and Tenth Ave in Chelsea. Visible from the Highline, the wall depicts four iconic and revolutionary artists Andy Warhol, Frida Khalo, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat as a depiction of Mount Rushmore. Owner Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim comments that this mural is bringing art closer to the community and this works engages the viewer and draws an audience, as it should. Kobra painted 18 murals all around the city portraying themes of freedom, equality and peace. Below is a video of making of the Kobra mural. 

Veteran Portraits by Susan J. Barron

Depicting the Invisible Presented by Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim

A Portrait Series of Veterans Suffering from PTSD By Susan J. Barron

9 November 2018

Susan J. Barron’s beautiful and powerful 6x6ft mixed media depictions on canvas are achieved through photographic imagery, paint and text. Unflinchingly the veterans make direct eye contact with us. Incorporated into these photographic portraits are the veteran’s own stories in their own words. In these works, they give voice to their experience, their reality, their world. The elegance of the images confronts the brutality of the stories. Barron’s ultimate mission is not one of simplistic deification, but one of truthful illumination. This body of work is intended to not only give voice to these warriors’ harrowing, shocking, and often hopeful stories, but to create a dialogue and community around the difficult issue of PTSD. The mission is to depict the invisible scars of war and to show these brave individuals they are not alone. The mission is to end their isolation and depict them as the heroes they are. There will be a private gallery reception for veterans who graciously participated in the portrait series on Veterans Day, 2018.

Cult Bytes by ALEXANDRA ISRAEL

Philippe Hoerle Guggenheim, the owner of Hoerle-Guggenheim Contemporary, is known for producing shows that embrace groundbreaking aesthetics and concepts that are a little out there so it came as no surprise to me that Alejandro and Domingo come from different artistic backgrounds and disciplines. The exhibition, which was meant to be seen as a “super meeting of the minds,” and a collaboration that echoes the vibrancy and personality of artists like Picasso and Basquiat only reinforced the following: why don’t I know who Domingo Zapata is and how has this gallery attracted so many people in the middle of a heat wave during Frieze Week?

Talking With Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim

TOTAL PRESTIGE MAGAZINE

Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim has a famous last name that is synonymous with the art world. A distant relative to the Guggenheims who founded the museum of the same name in the United States, Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim has cut out a path of his own. What this French-German living in New York City also has in common with the other Guggenheims is his passion for art. His love for the arts was developed at a young age. Inspired by his mother and grandmother, the German-born 36-year-old fell in love with art and those who create it. 

After spending time working in finance, he decided his true calling was to open the HG Contemporary Art Gallery in New York City. Hoerle-Guggenheim’s hip, cool and trendy art gallery shows off some of the best new artwork being created today by hot new artists. The Anglia Ruskin University graduate now sees his calling as a purveyor of the arts and has found his niche in the world. The HG Contemporary Art Gallery is thriving and Hoerle-Guggenheim couldn’t be more pleased with its potential as one of the upcoming art houses in New York City.

The singer has inaugurated the show 'Smile', formed by thirty paintings painted in collaboration with the artist Domingo Zapata.

I had to choose between painting and music, things do not go half-way, I used to hang on a string before a canvas like a wall and I crashed against it with my paintings," Alejandro Sanz recently confessed to the agency. Efe . Although he finally opted for the world of music, this week he has taken up his more artistic side and has done it in style, with an exhibition nothing more and nothing less than in New York. A sample formed by thirty paintings painted in collaboration with the Mallorcan artist Domingo Zapata . Both have shown proud the result of their works, among which stands out one with a singular theme: the Royal Family.

EL MUNDO

Chelsea space gallery owner of HG Contemporary, Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, takes to heart when he explains his decision to go for the Madrid singer Alejandro Sanz and the neo -impressionist Mallorcan artist Domingo Zapata , who has been in New York since 1999, with the exhibition 'Smile', which can be seen until May 15.

In the sample, highlights the pieces, made by Sanz and Zapata, with the title 'The withered flower', 'What I love About You' (What I love you) or 'The Royal Family' (The Royal Family), valued between $ 5,000 and $ 65,000 . Without a doubt, especially the last one, it is destined to attract the attention of the Spanish public, because it gives the impression that it portrays the tensions of the Spanish Royal Family .

EL PAIS

This joint exhibition is just another addition to a wildly popular and diverse career, this time exploring the world of music with renown musician Alejandro Sanz featuring Domingo Zapata. 

In 2017, Sanz received the Gold Medal of the Community of Madrid for his talent, his support of humanitarian causes and his ability to surmount obstacles. He has also received the Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts granted by the Spanish Ministry of Culture, and the Vision Award bestowed by the White House through the Hispanic Heritage Foundation in recognition of his notable contributions to Latin music. 

A true renaissance man, Zapata has worked in everything from sculpture, painting, music, murals, and fashion. Born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Zapata splits his time between his studios in New York, Miami and Hollywood creating Neo-Expressionist paintings in both oil and acrylic with the incorporation of mixed media, collage and graffiti.

A Witness to History - Fine Art Photographer Doug Menuez

The Impression Magazine Interview by George Wayne

Doug Menuez is the acclaimed photojournalist who – as with any great witness to history – was in the right place at the right time and with the right camera. His career began in 1981 as an intern to the Washington Post. It was only four years later that he found himself in 1985 Silicon Valley exploring and struggling alongside the young, still unknown scions of the emerging tech industry. Yes, befriending the likes of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates et alia – while wielding his camera and capturing some of the most profound and earliest images of the men who would become the pioneers and founding fathers of the tech industry of the 20th Century. Many of these images found their way into his highly acclaimed book Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution 1985-2000 which has been published into multiple languages and is regarded as one of the most important visual documents to the early beginnings of the men and few women who, indeed, truly led a revolution.

Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim in Interview

While Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim has always had a passion for art—he says that he began collecting as a child—it was not until later in life that he realized that art could be not only his passion but also his career. Inspired by the great artists and intellectuals of the 20th century, from Peggy Guggenheim and Pablo Picasso to Max Ernst and Jackson Pollock, who lived and breathed art in a social and communal setting, Hoerle-Guggenheim wanted to open a gallery to bring artists together and encourage people to connect and experience the feeling of living with art. Four years ago, that dream was realized with the opening of HG Contemporary.

A Guide To Building An Art Gallery with Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim

liveson.org

Most people have a tendency to use one side of their brain more than the other. The right side of the brain excels in the arts and the left side of the brain excels in math and science. Those excelling in math and science usually have better job prospects with a better salary than those excelling in the arts. Few actually make it as a musician, actor or artist. They are called “starving artists” for a reason. But what if you could get paid well for sharing your passion and knowledge with others? If you are passionate about art, you can turn that into a business through opening and running an art gallery.

Today’s Technology: Disconnection from Life?

InstaBlogs

As the world became introduced to new technology, people were excited. They were told that it would save so much of their time that there would be more time for family, friends, and hobbies. Extensive research has proven that the opposite is true. We have become deceived about today’s technology. The truth is that computer and communication technology actually disconnects us from life.

Interview With Marc Gumpinger, Artist | Welcome To The Future

THE HEDONIST MAGAZINE

Marc Gumpinger is the Artist of the Moment who will transcend his craft well into the Future by connecting the emotionally charged dots of the human soul with a scientifically enhanced laser-cut alike art technique that is both hypnotizing and besotting. Current and relevant, his art is the entrancing result of mixing the oxymoronic elements of human existence by bridging two worlds: tradition and digital innovation on the brink of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. His art is thought-provoking, forcing us to surpass the limitations of our comfort zone, stimulating our imagination, inspiring us to see beyond the Unseen and tap into a territory where fantasies and dreams are perfectly aligned with the latest discoveries in technology.

HG Contemporary Releases Jean-Michel Basquiat Limited Edition Record

During the peak of Punk Rock in the early eighties, when questioning the status-quo and aggressive social commentaries were at the heart of artistic expression, the San Francisco based Punk/ska band The OFFS were working to build a career. The coverart for their First Record, illustrated by Jean Michel Basquiat originally intrigued their signing label and contributed to their brief success. The OFFS and Basquiat’s social commentaries were consistent -- a support for class struggle through political art.

 

In 2017, HG Contemporary exclusively releases framed front/back limited edition of The OFFS First Record, cover art by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Tim Bengel has become somewhat of a YouTube sensation for the process videos featuring his unique technique of painting with sand and gold leaf. After tirelessly gluing individual grains of sand to blank canvases—each work can take up to 300 hours to complete—he reveals his intricate composition by standing up the canvas and letting the excess sand fall away, unveiling the image below. At the opening of his first New York solo show, the German artist will replicate this dramatic reveal live and in person for his newest piece.

How many times in life one can say these words and really mean them? And then this German artist came along and left us speechless.

To a certain extent, the abstract style known as Color Field painting is a one-shot deal: what you see is what you get. Natvar Bhavsar, an Indian-born artist who has lived in New York since the 1960s, is trying to do something else with this fairly straightforward genre, as a stimulating retrospective of his work at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum in New Brunswick seeks to show.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FINE ARTS FOR OUR CHILDREN

ARTCREATIVE.ME

Most people would agree with the concept that a child’s family life has the most influence on his development. The school they attend comes in second to that, and most children attend public schools. Families have always looked to the public school system to provide their children with a well-rounded education. Reading, writing, arithmetic, and science are not the only subjects needed to shape a child. A fine arts curriculum is essential to the development of children and teenagers.

How many people dread getting up early in the morning, think about their day, get their morning coffee and try not to dread going in to work? Unfortunately, most people spend the majority of their waking hours in this way. This dread drains their energy, which makes it more difficult to produce at work, which produces more dread. It is an endless and exhausting cycle. What if there was a way to end this cycle?

Great Dreams from Stuttgart to New York

"Dream big" is the motto of Tim Bengel. This attitude will lead him him to New York in the autumn. Before that, he is working with other young Stuttgart artists and shows his works in the boiler.

“For me art means doing things differently.” This tends to be the philosophy of the young artist Tim Bengel . This is the primary reason for his huge success. Oil on canvas, sculptures - all this already exists. That is why the 25-year-old has devoted himself to a different material that has a tradition in the art world, but is not so common today: sand.

Represented by Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim in North America, the show brings forth the highly acclaimed recent work by painter Conor Mccreedy (b.1987, Johannesburg, South Africa), who is known for his abstract and conceptual work based on his own unique, one-of-a-kind pigment “Mccreedy-Blue.” Inspired from his budding years in Southern Africa which is blessed with a landscape filled with endless shades of blue of brilliant cobalt skies and the convergence of Indian and Atlantic oceans, Mccreedy creates richly textured monochromatic abstract splash and figurative paintings in an unique pigment of blue.

A Rare Exhibition Coming to HG Contemporary Gallery

A new exhibition opening at Chelsea’s HG Contemporary Gallery last week. The main focus of the exhibition, which was curated by the gallery’s owner Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, will lay on the Greek artist Philip Tsiaras. Visitors will encounter a wide array of the acclaimed artist’s paintings and sculptures from the 1980s to present-day, which includes politically charged works, such as “Primtivist”. Acting as a visual commentary on gun-control, the sculpture asks an important question. Can anyone—no matter how primitive—acquire the right to use a gun?

Zheyna Xia | Emerging Chinese Art Star

The Impression: Interview by George Wayne

The acrylic on canvas medium takes on a thoroughly new form here! That was my first, precise personal thought as I perused the exuberant work of Zhenya Xia at the prime Chelsea gallery – HG Contemporary (527 West 23rd Street) earlier this Spring. This is, indeed, art d’vivre – if there ever is such a definition. Such is the draw and the evoked emotion. Her grasp of color, and the subtle yet resonant depth of her layers, her shapes, her diagonals is all crisp, unorthodox and very much original. Without question, the artistic signature of this Zhejiang born Chinese artist will continue to gather the keen eye of the very smartest and most astute collectors of post-millennial contemporary art.

Q. In his first exhibition stateside, what do you feel McAlpine Miller has to offer the US art scene?
 
I think McAlpine Miller has a great deal to offer the US art scene. He is unique, the paintings are explosive, loud, yet at the time very refined; a symmetry between pop-art and fine art that is rarely seen. He brings a unique perspective to the art world. His work is complete and his style is very bold, both of which are refreshing for anyone viewing his art in the gallery. And last but not least, anything British is well received in the US and brings an underlining sense of sophistication with it.

What’s the significance of this new show?

Well, in my almost 30 years as a visual artist, this exhibition represents an iconographic roadmap of the forces that shape today’s world, while bringing to the surface a very personal moment of social rationalization derived from the experiences I have lived in and out of Cuba. These works ine ably highlight the crude and controversial e ects of globalization; they are replete with elements that are political, social, religious, and even, intimate, in nature. In order to shock the conscience of my spectators, while awaking their curiosity, I have also included my collectors from all over the world, so as to make their presence inescapable throughout the show.

When HG Contemporary’s inaugural show is a solo exhibit of acclaimed street artist RETNA’s work, you know it’s a gallery with a distinct point of view. That guiding direction comes mainly from the Chelsea gallery’s director, Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, who has been visiting museums since he was three years old, getting carted around the Louvre with his art-obsessed mother and internalizing her penchant for the arts.

 

Hoerle-Guggenheim opened HG Contemporary in 2014 with the aforementioned RETNA exhibition to incredible acclaim. Since then, he has brought together an eclectic and thoughtful group of artists for a roster of group and solo exhibitions, often with a bold, playful pop culture bent that belies his genuine love for art.

In New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, a growing crowd watches a mirror image of a common street scene. There’s a tow truck and a car, but instead of removing it from an illegal parking space, the truck is lowering it into place, on the sidewalk in front of HG Contemporary Gallery. It’s a late-model VW Beetle in black, but it’s a little hard to tell, because it’s barely recognizable under all the multicolored graffiti, the work of Nelson Saiers.

The Beethoven of Mathematics

The Beethoven of Mathematics

Huffington Post - The Blog

Along with death and taxes, another certainty in life is math. In light of this, I hope to bring new meaning to April 15 as the birthday of Leonhard Euler. Born in 1707 to a pastor and pastor’s daughter in Basel, Switzerland, he was a devout Christian throughout his life, but chose the abacus over the cloth as a profession. This career would produce three of the top 5 most important equations ever, including arguably the most beautiful (according to a 1988 Mathematical Intelligencer poll), leading many to believe him to be the greatest mathematician ever. It is even more remarkable that he was able to accomplish this with impaired vision for most of his life. He began going blind in his 30’s, becoming completely blind in his 50’s. He actually became even more prolific after his blindness, earning comparisons to Beethoven whose deafness did not slow him.

 

As an artist, I draw my inspiration from many sources, from the Ethiopian Civil War to the crossing of the Rubicon, from Cezanne to Shakespeare, but given my background in mathematics, I regularly find myself exploring the lenses and tools that mathematics affords us. As one of mathematics’ greatest innovators, Euler is one of these inspirations for me.

The Warhol of Wall Street

The Warhol of Wall Street

Observer Culture by Guelda Voien

Anyone familiar with the art world knows that there exists a complex, incestuous relationship between fine art and finance. Both deal in valuing things that can be hard to objectively appraise, and both can be confoundingly volatile. Plus, finance men, with their insatiable appetites for wealth and status, are flocking to art galleries and auctions these days.

 

Nelson Saiers further unites the two: The former derivatives trader and hedge fund manager gave up his lucrative career to become an artist last year. He now paints—wait for it—financial crises.

 

Two weeks ago his show of 20 paintings opened at HG Contemporary in Chelsea. The exhibition, suggestively titled “Inside Wall Street,” has a three-fold mission. The works look at the inside of his algorithm (the intellectual property that built his hedge fund into a very successful one), the inside of his fund, which he wound down recently to focus exclusively on art, and inside Wall Street itself.

INSIDE WALL STREET Offers a Glimpse into the 2008 Crisis through the Lens of the Math and Algorithms That Run Wall Street

 

NEW YORK, April 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nelson Saiers—artist, math Ph.D., and former hedge fund manager—walked away from Wall Street roughly a year ago.  His art exhibition at HG Contemporary Gallery, 527 W 23rd Street in New York City, uses parts of his actual hedge fund trading algorithm to comment on the Financial Crisis of 2008, Madoff, and other large-scale financial motivators and events.

Nelson Saiers made his name as a star Wall Street quant. Now his paintings and sculpture targets the chaos of financial markets

 

Art and mathematics may seem worlds apart, but to study forms, lines, and shapes is also an education in balance, precision, and geometry.

 

Harmony between the aesthetic and the abacus goes on display this week in New York at a show of former hedge fund manager Nelson Saiers’ art. Saiers left his perch in 2014 as a star quant to dedicate time to math-based art, and his show targets the chaos inherent in financial markets. Lessons gleaned from trading are ubiquitous themes in his paintings and sculpture. At times, he converts his money-making equations into splashes of Braille, inserting brooding commentaries straight onto canvas. In one painting, he deploys his trading algorithms to conjecture what might have happened to the CBOE Volatility Index—the so-called fear gauge—after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in 1914.

 

Adapting Novel ‘Only Ever Yours’ For Film, TV

Adapting Novel ‘Only Ever Yours’ For Film, TV

Variety Magazine by Cynthia Littleton

Killer Content has acquired the film and TV rights to Louise O’Neill’s novel “Only Ever Yours” with plans to develop the property as a film and TV series.

 

O’Neill’s debut novel was a YA hit in the U.K., where it was published last year. “Only Ever Yours,” released in the U.S. in May, is a dystopian story of a finishing school for girls where technology is used to enforce extreme standards of beauty and conformity.

 

Killer Content was formed last year through the merger of Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler’s Killer Films with Glass Elevator Media, a content incubator launched by Adrienne Becker.

 

“Only Ever Yours” is designed to be a bigger-budget film than Killer has fielded in the past. The indie stalwart’s latest pic, Todd Haynes’ “Carol,” has been generating awards buzz. It’s set for release Nov. 20.

 

Killer Content is working with the newly launched nonprofit Two Brass Brads to finance “Only Ever Yours.” Two Brass Brads is described as non-profit organization that creates “socially relevant” content that will be released in tandem with activist campaigns and educational efforts.

 

Among the org’s supporters is Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, whose Hoerle-Guggenheim art gallery is hosting a book party for O’Neill in New York on Wednesday.

These works will be presented at Anagrams exhibition, that will be on view at Hoerle-Guggenheim's Gallery in New York. For the upcoming show, the artist merges changeable phrases and classical and pop culture imagery by employing a unique art technique of lenticular printing.

The collection, which included pieces by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, was spread out over the third floor of the ever-buzzing EDITION hotel, but it was still a challenge to get a good look at the work with so many guests filling up the large space. A long line formed outside the hotel, with people eager to get a peek at the show, but also to rub shoulders with the stylish guests including Mr. Brainwash, Harif Guzman, and the EDITION's very dapper Ben Pundole.

Over 1,000 people RSVP’d for an exhibition celebrating 50 years of the Rolling Stones on Tuesday.

“A lot of them were turned away or forced to wait without ever getting in. It was a madhouse,” said a spy of the ­Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery show at the Edition hotel.

Artist Jumping Bull created a Stones tongue installation of Coke cans. A collector bought a Ronnie Wood guitar for $10,000, and a “tech CEO” offered $80,000 for one of the band’s Grammys.

Also there were Mr. Brainwash, Harif Guzman and Scott Lipps.

Create Massive Mural for Vancouver | The Georgia Straight by Charlie Smith

May 30, 2015

This weekend, Jason Dussault is overseeing what will likely become one of the most memorable public-art projects in the city's history.

The celebrated mosaic artist and 500 volunteers from Telus were at David Lam Park creating a 12-metre by four-metre mural. It will feature a character he has named Barker the Evergreen standing in front of letters spelling out the word Vancouver.

"Most artists have to sneak out in the middle of the night to get their art on walls and streets," Dussault told the Straight. "I'm very fortunate that I don't have to risk arrest by trying to get my art up on the walls. I want to thank the city and Telus for doing this because it's something they don't have to do."

Mr. Brainwash (aka Thierry Guetta) is many things: a street artist, a filmmaker, and a real estate investor. He's been rumored to be Banksy, or alternatively, an invention of the famously anonymous street artist, after starring in the 2008 film, Exit from the Gift Shop.

Despite, or because of, these rumors, Mr. Brainwash continues his work as a street artist, taking on projects in cities around the world. New York seems to be a special place for the French expat, who currently lives in Los Angeles, but just bought a space under the High Line. He recently teamed up with Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery (see artnet Asks: Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, Gallery Director) to unleash his creativity on the interior of the newly launched New York Edition Hotel. The only problem? He has a mere three hours to get the job done, and isn't sure yet what to do, exactly. We sat down with Mr. Brainwash to discuss the project, his celebrity fascination, and of course, Banksy.

"Guns have long had an extraordinary and terrible influence over us," artist McCrow writes on his website. "There are those who glorify them, those that subjugate through them and those who suffer by them."

 

This connection between man and weapon serves as the focal point of his most recent exhibition, "History Interrupted, The Art of Disarmament” at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery. The show puts on view a collection of 20 decommissioned AK47s and other small arms, collected from regions of conflict around the world -- the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Palestinian territories, Iraq. McCrow renders the firearms useless, lacquering, polishing, and staining the guns until they resemble imposing sculptures hanging on the gallery's walls like benign canvases.

The Art of Disarmament

NEW YORK, NY - McCrow’s “History Interrupted, The Art of Disarmament”

is opening April 30th, 2015 at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery located at 527 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10011. The show, which will be open to the public through May 28th, features McCrow’s latest work from weaponry procured directly from areas of conflict and then decommissioned. McCrow wants people to look beyond their new representation, to acknowledge the dark story each weapon carries with it; to challenge our sanitised view of guns, our reaction to their being in front of us and with that of our own morality.

Whoever said art and algorithms are mutually exclusive? Almost a year ago, Nelson Saiers left his hedge fund, Saiers Capital, and turned his attention to a seemingly more creative venture: the full-time pursuit of art.

Saiers, who received his Ph.D. in mathematics at the ripe age of 23, pursued a successful career at Deutsche Bank before becoming chief investment officer of his own financial firm. Now, the self-anointed “mathematical artist" has harmoniously transitioned fromalgebraic topology to painting.

NELSON SAIERS TO OPEN POP-UP EXHIBITION CELEBRATING π IN AND BEYOND MATHEMATICS

“The Original Art Basel” by Nelson Saiers.

 

"I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me." - Sir Isaac Newton

 

In anticipation of a very special π (Pi) Day, artist and mathematician, Nelson Saiers, has prepared dual pop-up exhibitions focused on this ubiquitous number. The doors for both will open Saturday, March 14, 2015, or 3.14.15, at 9:26 AM (that is, 3.1415926, or the first eight digits of π) at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery, 527 West 23rd Street in Chelsea to celebrate this unique occurrence in the modern calendar. This exhibition will include an exclusive preview of Saiers' latest work.

 

Saiers uses some of the most profound Pi-related equations and theories, combined with social commentary, history, and literature, to create visually-stimulating and thought-provoking works of art. Inspired by Newton’s childlike view of himself, Saiers recalled his earliest discovery of math and created much of this collection with crayon and construction paper. The abstract forms share the beauty of mathematical simplicity, but also take the viewer on a journey to explore the famously irrational number that defines circles and is fundamental to statistics, fractals, thermodynamics, mechanics, and electromagnetism.

Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, the director of Chelsea gallery Hoerle-Guggenheim, has acquired an impressive array of important modern and contemporary artists for a gallery as young as his—it opened its doors on West 23rd Street for the very first time early this Fall. The gallery's most recent acquisitions include seminal works by artists RETNA. Also of note in the collection are the rich color-laden canvases of Natvar Bhavsar as well as a few choice works by Warhol, John Lennon, and Dalí.

Inspired from a young age on trips to the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart near his home of Ostfildern, Germany, Tim started imitating drawings of artists like Cy Twombly and Kandinsky from the age of 9.

He was confused what simple dashes of color could mean, and started realizing the importance of defining his own style. Earning his first art award at 18 for a collage about the European financial crisis made of coins, Tim then became determined to define a technique with “great recognition value.”

He developed his method of using sand, gold and glue between 2014 and 2015 before becoming a YouTube sensation by sharing videos of his process leading up to dramatic conclusions where he would reveal his intricate images by letting the un-glued sand and gold fall from canvases when turned vertical.
