Andy Rementer ‘Meet Me Later’

Andy Rementer – Meet Me Later

Andy Rementer just closed an exhibition of new paintings and drawings at Mondo Cane in New York. Following on from last year’s painting show ‘I Wish I Knew‘, ‘Meet Me Later‘ continues to reveal snapshots of loneliness in the urban landscape; furtive moments of people trying to connect with eachother and the city.

Mat Maitland for Tate’s Matisse Exhibition

Mat Maitland was commissioned by Tate to create a trailer for their blockbuster exhibition of 2014, Matisse: The Cut-Outs. Working with animator Paul Plowman, Mat created a short that evokes Matisse’s working process later in life, when he began ‘carving in colour’ with scissors. The exhibition runs until 7 September.

Matt Furie for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah

Matt Furie - Animal Planet

Matt Furie was invited by Darren Aronofsky to be part of an exhibition to accompany the film director’s latest movie, Noah. Alongside FAILE, James Jean, and other artists, Matt created Animal Planet (above) for the exhibition, which launched in New York and is currently touring the United States. As Aronofsky explains, ‘I was curious what other minds would come up with if they tried to represent the original (Noah’s ark) story. So I decided to reach out to my favorite artists and ask each of them to return to Genesis and create something in his or her own medium. The response was overwhelming.’

Michael Jackson / Xscape

Big-Active-Mat-Maitland-MJ

Big Active Creative Director and lifelong MJ fan, Mat Maitland, has created the cover for the new Michael Jackson album ‘Xscape’. Mat explains, “I really wanted to create an image of Michael that felt current, like a brand new album, rather than something that felt retrospective and it was important to me to evoke his magic and otherworldly presence.” The album, containing 8 previously unreleased songs produced by the likes of Timbaland and Stargate, is out on May 13.
