Last year I visited the CAC Málaga, a contemporary arts centre in the city of Málaga, in southern Spain, not far from the Málaga Centro subway station. I love Málaga for art galleries, from the Museo de Picasso to the new Pompidou Centre. This vibrant city has something for every type of art lover.
The main exhibition was “No Comment” from Yan Pei-Ming. He is a Chinese painter, born in 1960 in Shanghai, China. Since 1982 he has lived in Dijon, France. He paints epic-sized portraits, the most famous one being of Mao Tse Tung. His large mono-painted canvasses in No Comment had a theme of symbolic paintings by Spanish artists. But as the title suggests there were no word or titles to accompany them. One is left to form their own opinions. Here is a further selection of his work that I took snaps of, with my observations:
British artist Jessica Harrison sources traditional ceramic figurines and gives them a new lease of life with delicate, hand-painted tattoos. I have been meaning to focus on a series of artists that exhibited at Dismaland Arts Festival in Weston-Super Mare in 2015 – Harrison is the first artist in this series.

TRANSPORTED: The Future Museum of Now was an Element Arts exhibition during Southampton’s SO: To Speak word festival. It took place for two weeks inside some shipping containers located in the port city’s main ‘O2 Square’.
The exhibition transports you 500 years into the future, to the year 2515, and looks back at every day objects as relics from now.
