Ari Marcopoulos is set to launch a new solo exhibit titled “Machine” at the Frank Elbaz Gallery in Paris, France. The mixed-media savant will showcase his extensive oeuvre of still photos depicting iconic musicians such as JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar, The Beastie Boys and Ratking, to name a few. Accompanying the photographic work is a monumental eight-channel video installation that will feature a wide and diverse array of Marcopoulos’s rarely seen short films.
“The collection of works in view represents a broad range of images of the past and the present,” said Marcopoulos. “The Machine’adds the element of time and the cacophony of place to portraiture.”
Take a look at select images from the exhibit above and head over to Frank Elbaz Gallery’s official website to learn more. “Machine” will be open to the public starting September 2 up until October 14. An exclusive artist book by Marcopoulos made in collaboration with Red Lebanese will also launch on opening day.

Shepard Fairey has teamed up with Portuguese artist Vhils on a brand new mural located in Lisbon, Portugal. Although untitled, the monumental piece may derive creative cues from Obey Giant’s “Universal Personhood” series which made its debut back in 2016. The partnered artwork imbues Fairey’s politically-charged palette of black, white, and red hues alongside Vhils’ intricate relief techniques.
Take a look at the collaborative mural above captured by Jon Furlong. If you’re in Lisbon, be sure to drop by Shepard Fairey’s new “Printed Matters” solo exhibit at Underdogs Gallery.
