Street Artists in Galleries! Shows opening this week

Lots of very interesting gallery openings today and tomorrow, a sure sign that Summer is over!

Broken Minds Group Show

East in Hackney Wick a fascinating show opens with a mix of trained and untrained artists at The Outsider Gallery. The exhibition will feature previously unseen paintings, digital media, music, sound, poetry and spoken word items, and the launch of a new album mastered at Abbey Road Studios. I look forward to seeing work indoors from Neoh with whom I have had some thought provoking conversations about the use of art as a form of therapy for people suffering the misfortune of mental health issues.

Jimmy C – Atomised

Nearby Jimmy C whose street art is a consistent show stopper on the Shoreditch Street Art Tour has a solo show launching today – publicised by the gallery as his first solo show for three years, which it might well be if we didn’t count the Riot Series show at the Pure Evil Gallery in October 2013. Features an interactive self generating portrait device which could be fun. Opens tonight.

Aiko, Edo City Girl

Finally, if I wasn’t so travelled out, I’d definitely head to Ink’D Gallery in Brighton for Aiko’s solo show, Aiko being a founder member of Faile and hugely influential on their direction both before and since her departure from the collective.
