Remo curates Japanese street art for western readers. His first book, called simply Graffiti Japan, was followed with a surprisingly appealing lexicon of Japanese Manhole Covers. And he does art in sanguine red, black and white. He can tell you about it. Marsha Meredith — working as 2026 — gets her art up worldwide as part of the excellent Street Art Without Borders project. She also pastes things closer to her home, in and around the Bondi postcode. Meggs mixes innocent things — like children, or super-heroes — with blood, bile and spray. And just like Banksy snuck his work into the British Museum, Adam Mclevey snuck his into a monkey cage at Banksy's Bristol Museum show. The museum rehung it as part of the exhibition.
If you looked at the news in 2008, you've already seen the movement called lowbrow art, or pop surrealism. Friday evening, the Red Bull gallery will be full of it to launch M.A.R.s Attacks. All four artists will be represented — and as well as the work on the walls, Remo will be there in person to talk about his work. If you can't make the launch, the exhibition runs on until the 13th of November.
