Only a couple of shows in the Shoreditch Street Art Tour diary this Thursday, which it being Halloween could be due to most artists being out trick-or-treating. Several of Shoreditch Street Art Tour’s friends are in these shows, which is a tragedy as other engagements are likely to keep us out of the art galleries. Nevermind, the big highlight is actually on Friday – Stanley Donwood, again!
Hush – Fatales
Buxom babes, bombs, geishas, abstract tag backgrounds..just guessing.
The Outsiders London (Lazarides)
8 Greek St
Soho, London, W1D 4Dg
Group Show – Go Hard Or Go Home
Most of the publicity appears to inform us that this show is curated by Jon Patrick Boyle aka Motorboy. This could explain the detectable Bristol slant to a cracking line up which includes our favourites Cept, ACE, Sweet Toof, Pure Evil, Sickboy and Beejoir among others.
The Rag Factory
16-18 Heneage Street (off Brick Lane),London, E1 5LJ
FRIDAY 1 NOV: Stanley Donwood – Apocalypse Boutique
Friends who have been to Shoreditch Street Art Tour’s hideaway know what huge fans we are of Mr Donwood so it is a real treat to have a second Donwood show in a month (the Lazarides Rathbone Place show was extended by 1 week and finishes this weekend). In his words “THis is a strange kind of sample of what I’ve been doing for the past eight or nine years…Some of the work is painted, some printed, and some a combination of the two. Although there are other printing techniques employed here, a lot of the work was screen-printed at the Slowly Downward Manufactory”.
Special maps are available on the internet to show where Stoke Newington is.
