Eunjeong Choi’s Cascading Colors Create Cityscapes

Eunjeong Choi’s wild, illusionary oil paintings create cityscapes with kaleidoscopic forms. In a manner that can be likened to Maya Hayuk and Jen Stark, Choi creates both neat and muddied reflections on color, cascading in two and three dimensions. The painter-installation artist is currently based in Seoul, South Korea.

The painter-installation artist is currently based in Seoul, South Korea.

She recently contributed to the Sehwa Museum of Art exhibition “Phantom City.” As the display was “designed to offer the opportunity to observe the illusions of the light and colors and life of reality beyond the view us living in modern cities paradoxically,” Choi’s work was more than appropriate for the exhibition.

Currently on view at David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech, Alëxone Dizac's solo show "Banana Spleen" is a whimsical, interdisciplinary exploration of the artist's character-driven, colorful aesthetic. The exhibition includes paintings on fabric, sculptures, an installation, and a mural. Dizac began his career as a graffiti writer in Paris in the early 1990s. Though still focused on comical, surreal animal characters, his work has evolved into many other media. The busy, psychedelic paintings in the show feature the strange adventures of Dizac's signature anthropomorphic birds and dogs as they navigate through abstract patterns floating in space. Take a look at some highlights from "Banana Spleen" below before the show ends on November 29.
Berlin-based French artist Jaybo Monk (covered here) creates visual collages where figures and their surroundings become one, a place that he calls "nowhere." He then mixes unexpected elements into this nonsensical space, an experimentation Jaybo also carries into his sculptural works. "I want to disobey in my paintings; disobey the symmetry, the techniques and the narratives system. I am interested in nonsense, the only space for me where freedom is real. I use tools like chance and mistakes to evaluate my craft. I flirt with the impossible. I need to go to places I`ve never been before." We visited with Jaybo in his Berlin studio, where he is now working on a new series inspired by immigration.

The middle-aged figures inhabiting Madeleine Pfull's paintings are extracted from 1980s suburbia. The Australian artist has said that "beautifully painting mundane heroism is a large aspect of my work.” Pfull has said that she has modeled for herself to craft the paintings, donning wigs and accessories to embody the energy of her subjects.

The new oil paintings of New York-based artist Kajahl explore "the history and taxonomy of portraiture." The paintings take notes from differing cultures through time for hybrid reflections on the history of human creativity. The artist's current show at Richard Heller Gallery, titled "Unearthed Entities," presents a new collection of these works.
