From The Vaults : Upper Playground Video Of Herbert Baglione At Lazarides London, November 2008

Herbert Baglione - Lazarides Gallery from Upper Playground on Vimeo.

"We finally blew off the dust on this Super8 footage we shot of Herbert Baglione’s major solo show at Lazarides Gallery in London in November of 2008. We remember it like it was yesterday . . . a few of us from UP flew over to the show, Herbert painted all night, showed up late to the opening, and Obama was just elected El Presidente of the Free World.
This is footage from the all nighter pulled before the opening in the deep dungeon of the Lazarides space."

Thais Beltrame
Course Description

Choose a day to spend some time with Thais Beltrame in the drawing studio. Thais, a Brazilian artist, will be installing her drawings in the Art Space gallery and will talk about her process as well as the generation of ideas. When she was little, Thais scribbled on her mother’s books in order to create narratives with simple lines. Always a compulsive sketcher, Thais will help you find a dialogue with line and pattern. Bring your favorite drawing materials and a sketchbook for this short hands-on workshop.


The Brazilian born artist Thais Beltrame was born in 1976 and since she was little, she used to despise colored pencils and compulsively scribble on her mother’s books with a ball pen, creating endless narratives with simple lines. Today the result of such act are universal existential issues represented in black and white, recreating the memories of our childhood in all of its darkness, sadness, discovery and glow. The artist makes use of the subtle and meticulous brush and ink, revealing an atmosphere both peculiar and melancholic.

Herbert Baglione < Exhibition At Winterlong Galerie > Niort / France

"The Paintings of the Brasil based Herbert Baglione are provided with a rare, deep, melancholic, morbid fragility, and are always full of an incredible wealth. His huge murals are travelling between pain and the romantic relationship of man and woman. Emotionally strong, he visuals the scars and hurts of the heart and mind. With beautifully executed lines as a rope from dreams to dreams he guides us through times, pointing on Egon Schiele or Gustav Klimt influences, following the architecture shapes from the early twenty century, and playing with the calligraphic world of the nipponese graphism. Unique is the world of Baglione.."
