ELLE x Martha Cooper – Unextinguished – Mecka Gallery

by

Prolific NY-based street artist ELLE has a joint show with Martha Cooper opening at Mecka Gallery, Brooklyn, on Saturday 26th April. The show is a collaborative effort involving some rare, unusual photos from Martha, combined with some heavyweight, multi-disciplinary artwork from ELLE. Expect fire-extinguisher mayhem, screen-printed paper catwalk dresses and poignant pictures of kids playing in the streets. We caught up with ELLE to chat about her artwork, inspirations and that awkward moment when your arresting officer asks you out on a date.

Thierry Noir: A Retrospective

by

From 3rd April, Howard Griffin Gallery presents a retrospective of the life and work of infamous artist Thierry Noir. In 1984, Noir was the first artist to illegally paint mile upon mile of the Berlin Wall. Noir wanted to perform one real revolutionary act: to paint the Wall, to transform it, to make it ridiculous, and ultimately to help destroy it. Noir’s iconic, bright and seemingly innocent works painted on this deadly border symbolised a sole act of defiance and a lone voice of freedom. In this landmark exhibition at Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch, the artist’s first solo show, new original works will be exhibited alongside rarely seen photographs, interviews and films, juxtaposing old and new to reassess Noir’s enduring legacy and contribution to society.
