Save Yourselves in Hackney Wick

save-your-selves-pre-poster

For at least a decade, the urban art landscape of the East London area called Hackney Wick has shaped and developed the aesthetic of this unique pocket of London. Many of these artists have gone on to become some of the most prolific street artists of our time. As most buildings are doomed for demolition, subsequently so is the rich heritage of urban art in East London. Is there now anything left to Save, apart from ourselves?

Save Yourselves celebrates the art and the artists who have personal and emotional connections to the area. This October 14th at Stour Space, featured artist Aida Wilde will once again assemble the ‘Lunatics’ from the recent takeover of the Lord Napier pub (Hackney Wicked 2016), bringing you an immersive, visual and historical experience.

By sharing personal photos and archival images and footage, the local people of The Wick, Hackney WickED and Save Hackney Wick have contributed to what promises not to be just another gallery show but an insight into this unique community past and present.

Exhibiting along with the ‘Lunatics’ will be the launch of the printed posters of Sisters In Print,  a collective of opinionated sixteen national and international female artists, sharing  the love of print and print making. The prints produced for the show are all printed in Aida’s studio in the heart of Hackney Wick.

Sweet Toof – Derailed – Pandemic Gallery NYC

SWEET TOOF “DERAILED” – Opening Reception 12.12.14

SWEETTOOF DERAILED 12.12

Theres no real way to avoid the imagery SWEET TOOF presents to the public. The average citizen stops to observe just as intensely as the dedicated street photographer. His bright, colorful iconography is unmistakable. Strangely seductive, cartoon skulls grin malevolently from ear to ear, while disembodied floating gums appear seemingly in the hundreds all over the urban landscape, everything consistently overflowing with toothy turmoil. From site specific street graffiti and large scale murals to blanketing the abandoned structures of the city, his artistic presence is highly prolific, spanning several countries.

THE STREET ART SHOW – OPERA GALLERY LDN.

Have known about this one for a little while but only just had the confirmed details sent through.

Having supported street artists and graffiti artists in NYC, Paris and other major cities around the world, Opera gallery’s London crew has pieced together some big names from the urban art world, both past and present to produce ‘The Street Art Show’

I have to say, its a mighty impressive line-up, but after being big fans for a while I think I am most excited about seeing Kid-zoom, How & Nosm and Sabers work in the flesh.

The show runs from the 17th – 30th of June.
