Here’s the spiel about the show…

Our annual group show this year is stronger than ever. As usual, we are focusing on the top end of the urban art scene. There will be paintings (though not all on canvas), drawings, 3d work and ceramics.

The show will be our richest yet featuring a stunning line up of seventeen international artists, most of whom will be showcased in solo shows over the next eighteen months in the gallery. The artists are: Dan Baldwin (UK), Armsrock (Denmark), Byroglyphics (UK), Dale Grimshaw (UK), Guy Denning (UK/France), Case (Germany), Jonathan Darby (UK), David Le Fleming (New Zealand), Ethos (Brazil), C215 (France), Alke Schmidt (Germany/UK), Holly Thoburn (UK), Jef Aerosol (France), Labrona (Canada), Christopher Ross (Canada), SPQR (UK) and Istvan Szanto (Hungary).

C215

We avoided any brief for the artists, only asking them to keep their works on the small side so that we can fit them all in the gallery. All the works have been specially produced for the show and have not been shown elsewhere before.

After two and a half years of showing work in Hoxton this show is a landmark for us, pulling together many creative strands. The show represents where we are now as a gallery.

One foot in the grove – PICS


Mutate opens this week, I have been down to drop my work off and its looking great….

You can view photos from the previous opening in october in S.VEGAS’s & UNUSUALIMAGE’s photo sets.

SHOCK AND AWE

HALLIBURTON, BLACKWATER PRIVATE SECURITY FIRM and OIL are some of the key factors that devastated Iraq. In this piece I have decided to be quite bold with the branding of logos as opposed to the subtle approach that I may have taken in the past. I wanted the logos to have a ‘concrete block’ effect…Strong, Impenetrable, Robust..


MUTATE BRITAIN-ONE FOOT IN THE GROVE

I have begun working on a piece that I will be contributing to Mutate this december…
The show will be on right up until 22 december and I will be selling my full range of prints there.


BLACK AMERICA THE EXHIBITION

BLACK AMERICA the exhibition is to support THE ODYSSEY’s album which was launched at the roundhouse, camden. The exhibition was held in the basement of The Shoreditch Town Hall. The venue has dozens of run down nooks and crannys that made perfect for an event of art and music. On the night there was live music from various artists and allsorts of art installations scattered in dark corners.

The art workshop was a nice evening, although the live painting was pretty minor as chit chat became more of the focus.

JONATHAN DARBY VS DAVID LE FLEMING

I really like the way David has intertwined his piece on top of my old piece, seemless.
