The David Zwirner Gallery, which occupies an elegant townhouse near Berkeley Square, is presenting a collection of works by Oscar Murillo during Frieze week and until late November. Murillo is a young Colombian artist, highly touted by speculators in 2014, who now lives and works in London. Murillo's show, binary function, proves his status as an established artist, with an average price for one of his works estimated at £250,000. His canvases are collages, in the sense that a variety of surfaces are stitched together and then applied with paint which is scrawled, smeared, shaken and stirred. Elsewhere, he has used scraps of newsprint and magazines upon which further images and paint have been layered. In the upstairs gallery, there is an installation of heavy black canvases that smells of oil which gives the exhibition a dark brooding quality that is quite potent. The show runs until the 20th of next month and is located at 24 Grafton Street, London, W1S 4EZ.
