We’d like it if some of Xuan Alyfe’s lively murals popped up around the area we live to make the city streets all that more cheerful. In dazzling colour with a few welcome neons thrown in, Xuan creates these intense pieces on walls and in exhibition spaces. They’re all about careful composition. A mixture of symbols and expressive sprays of paint are placed in considered layouts to create a wonderful, chaotic balance.

Sarah Greaves’ series of work, ‘Embroidered Graffiti’ is the kind that makes you take a second look and wonder, “how’d she do that?” At first glance, the typography is elegant cursive that sits comfortably on the objects as if written on with the lightest touch. Look closely and you will see that the words have had to be forced through the material, which include complete wooden doors, metal, and the chassis of a toaster.

The different talents of French artist, Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 are as multiple as are the eyes of the weird, wolfish creatures that inhabit his work. His trippy imagery, which manages a sense of darkness despite its beaming colours, fills illustrations and graphics as well as his own large paintings. The strong individual character of his work moves unscathed from his tactile, hand-made mark-rich paintings to crisp edges of his vector-based work.
