Their forthcoming print release titled ‘The Rise of the Samurai of Paul’ sees a trio of beaming, three-headed characters in a ‘floating city’ theme, originally hand drawn on canvas, created for their spring 2015 exhibition at the Megumi Ogita Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. The occasion was, of course, marked by more of their Lads appearing outdoors in various spots, making themselves at home all around the famously vibrant city. It is a print that condenses the ambitious, irreverent brilliance of the pair as seen in vast, outdoor paintings in far-from-home locations, from Oslo to Los Angeles.
‘Beyond the Pale Blue Dot’ presents Cheba’s first major show in 4 years, a series of mixed media works presenting the artist’s journey into abstraction and futuristic spray can expressionism. His recent work has evolved into vibrant and abstract fluid formations, a new and refreshing direction for the artist although influences of the bold character led work that he is well known for can still be found.
Big ups to everyone that came down to our Bristol and London launches, apologies to those of you who couldn’t make the UK launches, hopefully we’ll be bringing a launch to somewhere near you in the not too distant future…
Massive thanks to all of our partners and friends that made this happen, special thanks to Aaron and the Sixpoint crew, Alex and Ian at Laz, and Cheba and the Weapon Of Choice boys for being most excellent hosts.

Subtly straddling the boundaries between illustration, design, street artist or graffiti, Philth is uncategorizable. His work is haunting, yet endearing, strangely attractive to the senses; the heady mix of symbolism and alchemy present in his work is inspired by the art in science, Victorian paintings and woodblock printing.
Projects with Adidas, Snow Queen Vodka & China White projects have all popped up to pay the bills, but he prefers to spend his time collaborating with start-ups like Viva Sativa & UTC from grass roots level where he has more creative control and artistic integrity.
The winner of Secret Wars Birmingham and finalist of Euro league has an upcoming solo show running in Bristol:
Friday 12th April, 6pm
Weapon Of Choice Gallery,
8b Park Street
Bristol, BS1 5HR
Bristol bad boys, Weapon of Choice, present Nikill’s solo show at Red Bull studios, London.
For a young’un, this young gun’s been painting free-flowing pieces that explore the depths of the cosmos, unconscious or stripped back-to-basics rhythm and flow.
This new body of work marks a change of direction for Nikill, with a more rigid, graphic angle, combining a sense of freedom with order. Laser-cut lines contrast sharply with freeform colours in these fresh pieces.
The show runs until Wednesday 10th April at Red Bull Studio, London
155-171 Tooley St, SE1 2JP.
