Winter has left the building
In anticipation of our favourite season, in no particular order we thought we’d give you the low down on our top ten artists’ news…
Cody Choi at the private view of his work at The Other Art Fair x Saatchi Art, Victoria House, London, March 2018
Dance photographer, choreographer, dancer and model, is there anything that Cody Choi can’t do? After selling out in Los Angeles at The Other Art Fair x Saatchi last month, Choi had a very successful private view at The Other Art Fair x Saatchi Art at Victoria House, London. Works available here.
Bella Hadid shot by Emanuele D’Angelo in Tokyo this month
With A-list fans and iconic fashion house clientele, such as the likes of Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney, Emanuele D’Angelo is no stranger to the spotlight, residing between London and LA. Recently he has been travelling around Tokyo with supermodel Bella Hadid, on hand and ready to snap more sublime pictures to create flawless imagery from natural light. Check out some of his architectural delights that we have here.
Rolls Royce on fire, C-Type photographic print, 2014
Celebrity photographer and infamous boundary pusher Tyler Shields is known for his confounding photographs, but he has taken us one step further into his daring world with unprecedented access in his recent debut documentary Tyler Shields: Provocateur.

Fake Like Judas show, One Arts Club, Milan, 13th April 2018
After solo shows in Miami, New York and London, CB Hoyo’s first solo Milan show last night at One Arts Club attracted quite the crowd! His ever satirical work embellished the walls with a familiar display of show-stopping colour. The impressive turnout for the opening is indicative of the impact Cuban-born CB has had on the art world in recent months. Click here for available works.
Half a Roast Chicken
Eve sitting in front of ‘Make Eye Contact Whilst Eating A Banana’, April 2018
London-based Eve De Haan, otherwise known as Half a Roast Chicken, is one of our favourite up-and-coming artists. The artist, who exclaims the power of words in neon – such as ‘do not trust robots’ and ‘who robs a bank in a bikini?’ – is forever enthralling us with her creations and has been showing the world behind the scene action and inner workings from her studio on her instagram. See more of her works available from us here.
Dimensional Flux, Lauren Baker, 2016, at Imitate Modern
Lauren Baker has been summoning creativity across the ocean in Thailand. Her beautiful, delicate and often circular neon works are an expression of the universe itself and have emerged out of a life changing trip to South America in 2012. It is clear, and the artist states so herself, that she gets her creativity and influence from being submerged in unspoilt wildlife and nature. See her works here.
Rich Simmons in front of one of his ‘skullerflies’, April 2018
Rich Simmons is always pushing the boundaries of his work through his roots in street art, continuing to evocatively and inventively use stencils to produce his stark images. He has recently given us an insight on his instagram into a new theme this year that co-merges skulls and butterflies, coining them ‘skullerflies’. See his works that are available through us here.
Make It So is a celebration of 50 years of Star Trek by Paul Oz, 2018
Artist Paul Oz, influenced by sports – namely Formula One – and sci-fi, has been busy prepping what he calls ‘a culmination of a four year project and world tour’ oil painting portrait of Sir Patrick Stuart for auction in time for the celebration of 50 years of Star Trek. The paint appears to be jumping out of the canvas in this striking work. More of Oz’s works are available from us here.
Illuminati Neon’s God Save the Queen neon accompanied print, 2017
Mark, from Illuminati Neon, has been creating more of his stand-out Queen prints – one of our current favourite visual delights at Imitate Modern – accompanied by another neon punk slogan ‘God Save The Queen’. We are intrigued to see what more colours he produces his prints in – we hope he continues to give us our Queen fix! See more from Illuminati Neon here.
A new work, Bitcoin Fortune, that Shawn Kolodny has recently revealed on his Instagram, April 2018
Be it preparing to paint in the desert for Coachella, or showing work at DOMO Architecture + Design’s ARTchitecture Spring Art Social on Miami Beach, Shawn Kolodny is certainly busy in the world of art. If you happen to be in Miami, he is exhibiting at the Buzz Art Auction in the Nobu Hotel Miami Beach Studio on April 21st. More from the artist who uses fashion brands to explore addiction through ego here.
