Following Cosmic Teta, (recent large-scale commission for the Barbican Centre), Maria Nopuceno exhibits her vibrant and dynamic work in Mayfair soon. These new works expand upon the Rio de Janeiro-based artist’s methods of rope weaving and straw braiding, we believe it's quite a must see.

His drawings oftenly have reference to nature and reverie, yet also contain an answering sense of longing and determination. The first, major exhibition with his new gallery, Sherman recently completed drawings and paintings, which are known for providing a complex, powerful, and inexplicable experience for the viewer.

White Cube Bermondsey, The Borough, SE1 3TQ

Made in the past two years, this exhibition was inspired by the German pacifist Ernst Friederich and his anti-war book War against War (1924). With those collage-style paintings, it's definitely an interesting exhibition.
