Got an invitation from an old friend to submit a piece for their new show, since i missed their debut collection (The One Ton Show). I am flattered to be amongst so many talented artists, most of them are far removed from the usual circles you would expect from the east london art ‘scene’. In recent years there has been a massive influx of street artists, or urban artists. Quite refreshing to remember that art will not die, no matter if its created with permission, and no aerosol or wallpaper paste in sight.
Anyone interested will have to come along to the venue, in Shoreditch (map link below). For those who can’t, I will be publishing an image on here AFTER the launch night, any sales enquiries will have to be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heres their release:
