Vitrine Bermondsey Street's latest exhibition features new paintings by John Walter and encapsulates the ornate, bold and iconoclastic vision of his maximalist aesthetic.

'The Rococo Riots' encompasses digitally printed grounds, resin and layers of mark making and imagery that are built up into paintings that use grids, craquelure and collage...

A recent exhibition of what organisers have termed the University of the Arts London's 'brightest and best students' has provided a refreshing and necessary glimpse into some of the artists likely to play a significant role in the future of British art.

There's an excitement that comes with discovery. The buzz of being the first to hear a new song or stumble upon an unknown designer at an off-schedule fashion show, or escape to a remote, seemingly untrodden getaway. The excitement comes in two waves: initially in the locating or unearthing of...

A visit to the city of dreaming spires is always rewarding, but check out Oxford's Hidden Gems for a different experience.

According to the UK's Mental Health Foundation, one in four of us will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year. Mixed anxiety and depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain and about one in five older people are affected by it. In...

Remembering Soham

(0) Comments | Posted 13 January 2012 | (11:41)

This year marks a decade since the Soham Murders, in which 10-year-olds Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman were murdered by school caretaker Ian Huntley in a small village in Cambridgeshire. It was a crime of savagery, brutality and tragedy that raised issues of significant public interest, media coverage and speculation....

In Search of Perfection

(0) Comments | Posted 2 January 2012 | (17:57)

My Christmas stocking included a surprising addition this year. Given my work ethic (work, work, sleep, work) and aversion to dating, my flatmate thought it would be fitting to present me with a ready-to-go Perfect Man. Not, I hasten to add, a giftwrapped Adonis, but rather a new...

Crunch Time for the Art World

(0) Comments | Posted 2 November 2011 | (11:41)

Next month the annual Crunch festival, which I organise with a small but indefatigable team, returns to Hay-on-Wye. Launched just before the eponymous credit collapse, the festival continues to raise questions about the art market, its stability and foibles.

The Art of Curation

(0) Comments | Posted 27 October 2011 | (17:42)

The art world can be a fickle place, but to Hans Ulrich Obrist it remains unfalteringly loyal. Co-director of London's Serpentine Gallery, founder of the Brutally Early Club (for busy people who breakfast at dawn), interviewer, archivist, and one of this year's Crunch festival speakers, he is, indisputably,...

Out In The Wilderness

(0) Comments | Posted 19 August 2011 | (00:00)

There is something peculiarly British about our love of festivals. Whilst European and American equivalents continue to flourish, the British are almost protective of their festival culture. We are joyous about our weekends of merriment, in which we forge transient friendships and resurrect long forgotten communities.

Yet with so...

Just say YES

Another festival, another corporate cluster bomb. Or not, as I discovered at the Secret Garden Party.

The association appears inevitable. With an already saturated festival calendar, new festivals springing up like field mushrooms and arts funding down, organisations are going cap in hand to corporations in search of a...

Murdoch and the Godfather

(2) Comments | Posted 20 July 2011 | (15:38)

Was I the only one who expected to see Frank Pentangeli wheeled out at the Murdoch inquisition yesterday?

With its committee struggling to land their punches on the defiant Godfather and his trusted consigliere, the Wilson Room was transformed into an extended scene from Frances Ford Coppola's masterpiece.
