January 2018 sees the launch of Lazinc, a contemporary arts business and new flagship gallery space in the heart of Mayfair.
Lazinc is based on a joint partnership with contemporary art specialist, Steve Lazarides, who founded the existing Lazarides business in 2006, alongside eminent art collector and global retail expert, Wissam Al Mana.
The first show will be from French street artist JR. He will present a unique series of studies through a collection of mixed media works, each encompassing preparatory notes, photography and architectural drawings relating to the GIANT series. This will be a first for the artist’s GIANTS series outside of private studio visits. JR created a series of new 3D outdoor sculptures across Rio de Janeiro, depicting athletes whose identity is blurred behind the “perfect motion” of an instantly recognisable Olympic event: diving, high jump and swimming. In addition to the gallery exhibition, an entirely new image will be used to re-create a GIANT installation on the exterior of the new Lazinc gallery on Sackville Street for the opening of the show this January.
