Faile: Lost in Glimmering Shadows
by Ariston Anderson
For London street art fans, the must see-show this week is Faile's "Lost in Glimmering Shadows," as they bring their inimitable prints and paintings across the Atlantic. The art collective's London show last year, "From Brooklyn with Love," sold out instantly, and led to an invitation from the TATE Modern Gallery to invite them to paint their exterior this past May.
This time, in conjunction with Lazarides Gallery, they're featuring a series of new work, drawing inspiration from cowboys and Indians comic books, a frequent source of material for the group. They've transformed Native American heroes into an urban setting through a multitude of colors and collage. And Faile will be sure to hit up the streets with a variety of new prints which tap at the same theme.
The CH25 is a showcase of creators and innovators from a broad range of disciplines who are currently working to drive the world forward.
