Art • GoSee ART : British artist Paul Robinson, aka LUAP, depicts a pink teddy bear come-to-life and placed in the real world acting as a metaphor for discovery and exploration

19.10.2020 • Paul Robinson, known professionally as LUAP, is a British contemporary artist. A skilled fine artist who dynamically fuses painting and photography, Paul Robinson, aka LUAP, born in Grimsby in 1982, is quickly gaining critical recognition and attracting a celebrity following for his exciting work. Working across various mediums, his work hints at abstract expressionism infused with the explosive energy and bold color of pop and urban art. Exploring existential subjects within a contemporary field, his work stands alone with its composition, provoking content and subject matter.

His most iconic series depicts a pink teddy bear which has come to life, placed in the real world acting as a metaphor for discovery and exploration.

Art • GoSee loves ... BILL CUNNINGHAM | NEW YORK, NEW YORK – an ode to the legendary street style photographer with 80 vintage prints from 50 years, still on display through the end of November in the Bruce Silverstein Gallery

14.10.2020 • Bill Cunningham’s columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours” in the NEW YORK TIMES presented the true New York. He photographed stars, at gala events, and the style of the street from his bike. The New York icon, who died in 2016 at the age of 87, didn’t considered himself so much a trend scout but rather a collector and archivist. The Bruce Silverstein Gallery in Manhattan is now showing more than 80 vintage prints in a glamorous exhibition of the inhabitants of New York from five decades.

The gallery on the exhibition which is still on through the end of November: “Bill Cunningham | New York, New York is not just a chronicle of fashion trends from the street to the elite, but a testimony of life in the great metropolis that poignantly bears little resemblance to the city of today, having been an epicenter of a global crisis. During this period of profound isolation and reflection, this exhibition serves as more than a historical document of the rich vitality of New York but as a beacon of hope; a reminder of a life that once was, and will surely return.

Born in 1929 and raised in...
