Her work recently was singled out by the curators of Los Angeles I’M Yours as “Best of L.A. Art Show” earlier this year.
Govrin works in multiple media from cement, hemp to antique chandelier sculptures. The work crosses cultural and nationa boundaries. His work was particularly appealing to the shutterbugs at Art Miami this pas year.
Noger is an abstract artist from Germany who has had solo shows at Art Basel and SCOPE Miami. New work by Noger, including charcoal drawings, recently arrived at TYFA.
’s first major show in Asia will be presented by FEAST Projects, Harbour Industrial Centre, Ap Lei Chau, Hong Kong
The show takes place from April 19 to May 26, 2012 (hours from 12- 7 p.m.). There will be an reception with the artist on April 19, 2012 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Mocquet has a wide ranging resume which includes a 2009 one woman retrospective at the Contemporary Art Museum in Lyon (quite a feat considering she 33 years old). She was invited to the Shanghi Biennial in 2010 and is the winner of the Pierre Cardin Prize, Alphonse Cellier Prize and the Hiscox Prize.
Her mixed media work on canvas channels surrealism into a world with her own characters, creatures and objects. Her work references masters ranging from Hieronyms Bosch to Betty Boop, from Paul Klee to Tim Burton. Her painting began as a form of self-therapy—where much great art begins.
Her work has been shown in solo exhibits in France, Austria and the United States. Now her work comes, en masse, to Asia.

, opens at Silverlens Gallery, 2320 Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City, Philippines
, March 15 and runs through April 14. Verzosa is a fashion photographer but his work aims fomr more than that. He takes his models and looks at them in a different light as a “vessel of form and movement.” He documents figures in transition and as the model is asked to interpret a series of cloud formations.
Look at the images about Harbinger 1 and 2 and look for the human forms alongside clouds.
Verozosa lives in Manila. He is also doing a long term project documenting the last of the tattooed women of Kalinga.
Photojournalist, filmmaker and writer Tim Hetherington
died tragically covering the conflict in Libya in 2011. His work seems to span every terrible conflict in our times and his death leaves a whole in his profession—as does the death of any journalist or photo journalist. These are the people who make war real to us. They bring us photos that can change how we view a conflict, how we view the world.
Hetherington’s estate is now represented exclusively by Yossi Milo Gallery
. The gallery will present an exhibition of his photos in April, 2012.
You may also recall the film, Restrepo
, which Hetherington co-directed with Sebastian Junger
. The film was about a platoon in Afghanistan and won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and was nominated for an Academy Award.
