Krets is an art gallery/project room located at Kristianstadsgatan 16 in Malmö, Sweden. It’s where I found these pics of the coolest candles ever conceived (amongst other stuff), and it’s got a shop with a bunch of good stuff too.
A major Picasso exhibition showing at Tate Liverpool has just been announced for next year.

The Serpentine Gallery presents an exhibition of the work of the celebrated American artist Jeff Koons, his first major exhibition in a public gallery in England.
Working in thematic series since the early 1980s, Koons has explored notions of consumerism, taste, banality, childhood and sexuality. He is known for his meticulously fabricated works that draw on a variety of objects and images from American and consumer culture.
For his exhibition at the Gallery, Koons presents paintings and sculptures from his Popeye series, which he began in 2002.
East London’s leading contemporary urban art gallery – “Stolen Space,” plays host to a new solo show by Jeff Soto called “The Inland Empire”. 14th May — 7th June.
Hellovon, genius of London town, opened a solo show last night at the Electric Blue Gallery. It’s showing until July 7th, so get down there, marvel at his unearthly talent, and maybe buy a print or two.
We understand that times are a little more difficult out there at the moment so we wanted to create uplifting artwork that offered people affordable escapism from their everyday grind. In a time where expensive, luxury escapes are not as possible, the aim of WYWH is to bring those beautiful, far away, idyllic places directly to you, beautifying your home in the process!

Spring Projects latest exhibition features artists Barnaby Barford and Alice Hawkins. The artists link their work at Spring Projects through seeking uncelebrated subjects and objects, which are often overlooked, and remodeling them. Barnaby says “I think the show represents the hopes and aspirations of the individual characters within all the work, whether they are, or want to portray themselves as good, or bad or beautiful”.
In particular I’m a fan of Barnaby Barford who works with ceramics to create unique narrative pieces. Although an accomplished craftsman, Barford primarily selects found objects, taking both mass-manufactured and antique figurines and turning them into sinister, sardonic but invariably humorous sculptures. Shown above:

“In 1938, Hans Knoll, then aged just 24 years old, arrived in the United States from Germany. One month later, he nailed a sign on the door of a single second storey room in New York that read: Factory No. 1. The Hans G. Knoll Furniture Company. From this humble beginning, his company, Knoll, grew to become one of the 20th century’s most influential producers of contemporary furniture. Seventy years later, Liberty, itself renowned for its championing of contemporary furniture, will pay tribute to Knoll by hosting a retrospective show of some of its key designer pieces from the past to the present, from Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Barcelona® chair to Ross Lovegrove’s Sprite Stacking chair.”
