Pablo Delgado show

If you occasionally stroll the streets of East London or at least flicked through issue 17 of VNA magazine chances are you might be well familiar with minuscule world that Pablo Delgado is the master of.

And so, this Thursday, at Howard Griffin Gallery the Mexican artist presents his latest show entitled EVEN LESS. Delgado is known for abstracting existing images and rearranging them into new surreal scenes and compositions.

The title of the exhibition reflects Delgado’s obsessive focus in minimising and reducing his work to its smallest expression. The constant need to be less reflects the world’s unsustainable requirement for resources and necessities. As a counterpoint to this, minimalism and an emphasis upon negative space become a paramount means of expression.

The upper level of the gallery is delineated into two distinct areas, one containing the other. In both, Delgado investigates the corresponding qualities of negative and positive space present in his work with an installation that gives attention to absence in order to give meaning to presence.

VNA 17 – Come & Celebrate

We are pleased to announce our 17th issue fronted by Amsterdam-dwelling British duo, The London Police. Our exclusive interview and photos provide a unique perspective on their life and work, and offers something special for fans and newbies alike.

Issue 17 also sees VNA chat to the always amusing Goldie about cooking ‘cliffy chicken’, music and his art, alongside Shoreditch shutter bomber Malarky and Mexican miniature maestro, Pablo Delgado. On the international tip, we caught up with Ukraine’s own mural-masters Interesni Kazki, Dutch tattooist Angelique Houtkamp and from the USA, graffer Else ICR and photo-real maestro El Mac.

We top it all off with shots of the latest street art from some of Toronto, Amsterdam and of course London’s grimiest walls….

 

We will be celebrating the launch of this issue on 8th December at 18 Hewitt Street, with support from Protein, Edding, Pop Up Projects, Addict and drinks supplied by Kopparberg.

Space is limited for the event, so please RSVP to: rsvp@verynearlyalmost.com
