Colour, brightness and obscurity abound as the slashTHREE international art collective releases its 14th exhibition, entitled “Le Cirque Des Couleurs”. This theme invited the artists not only to explore their brighter and more vibrant side but also to create free flowing, abnormal, 'circus' like imagery. On top of this, the collective has come together to create “Le Grand Cirque Des Couleurs”, a massive typographical collaboration in which volunteers from the collective created pieces of art based around a letter of their choosing. For conceiving and administrating this project from start to end, our sincere thanks go to Mart Biemans, and Evan Bohringer the director and web designer for this first-time slashTHREE project.
The collective has chosen to outline the tremendous contributions of Erik Schumacher. With outstanding determination, dedication, consistency and activity since he became a member of the collective, Erik has not failed to submit to an exhibition, and has provided in-depth, thoughtful feedback on the pieces submitted by his fellow artists; his incredible ensemble of matte paintings and character based illustrations seemed to fit right in with our 14th exhibitions theme. For Le Cirque Des Couleurs Erik produced three stunning illustrations of superb quality and style, and has most definitely earned his place as this pack’s Featured Artist. You can read Saad Moosajee’s interview with Erik here.
slashTHREE is on the verge of a new era. With major projects in the pipeline such as slashTHREE Version 4, we aim to change the face of this collective and make your experience even better, this truly is the place to be in the future. For now, though, we are extremely proud to present our 14th exhibition, “Le Cirque Des Couleurs”.

I was recently interviewed to give an in-depth analysis of slashTHREE and its inner-workings as a collective.. the image makes it difficult to read, so go and pick it up at a store near you!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is with great pleasure that the slashTHREE collective presents to you its 13th exhibition, entitled "Unleashed". This theme allowed our artists to delve deep into their thoughts and engage with their musings as they unleashed their creative power, producing over 70 of the finest works of art slashTHREE has to offer. It truly allowed the slashTHREE collective to show the world all of their skills and talents, and we could not be more proud of the outcome.
With the release of the exhibition, the slashTHREE staff would like to recognize the resounding contributions of Anton Semenov. Anton contributed two stunning pieces to the exhibition, Black Dream and Silence, and has rightfully earned his place as the Featured Artist for this exhibition. You can read Anton's interview with Saad Moosajee (featuring Vladimir Tomin as translator) here. On top of this, we would like to acknowledge the strong submissions from some of the latest additions to the collective, Amélie Hutt, Rron Nushi, Kode Abdo and Irina Batkova, as well as an intriguing music series contributed by long term member Murat Pak.
The past two months have been huge for slashTHREE as a whole, and big things are yet to come. At the forefront of the list, a group of staff members, artists and designers are currently hard at work designing a new version of the slashTHREE website. With a much more intuitive user experience and many new ideas being put forward for the site, we are very excited for what the next chapter in the life of slashTHREE will bring. Also, we are tremendously honored to announce that the collective has entered into a collaborative charity project with http://www.thepostercauseproject.com, to raise money for the relief efforts in Haiti.
With that, we invite you to have a look at Exhibition 13, "Unleashed", and we hope that you enjoy viewing it as much as we enjoy putting it together!
