Whats On: Street Art gallery shows Nov 14th and 15th

Quite an exciting end of week for gallery related street art work.  Or is it street related gallery work.  Or perhaps Urban Art.  Who cares, good art, friendly faces and possibly some free liquid refreshments thrown in.

 

Pure Evil Department Store

Pure Evil has long been a corner stone of Shoreditch’s street art scene.  From the murky leafs of his address book all kinds of radical international street art talent have had their first London break through the Pure Evil Gallery.  Names like Roa, Pablo Delgado, Artiste Ouvrier, Spectre and Robbo had legendary solo shows in the Pure Evil dungeon.   Always seeking the novel and bizarre, Pure Evil has decided to open what he calls a department store just a couple of doors down from his own gallery.  Expect carpets, sports equipment, cookery and a perfume counter just inside the front door …hang on a minute….no, sorry, that’s a normal department store.  Actually, the only thing to expect from Mr Evil is the un-expected.

D Face One Man And His Dog,

Banksy hasn’t returned the calls from his publisher for quite a while so perhaps the most significant street art literary disclosure for many years will be DFace’s book.  They call it a monograph but I don’t know what one of those is so on account of the covers, pages, words and pictures I am sticking with “Book”.   Certainly there should be no lack of material regarding the man, his art and his contribution to the London street art scene to make this a fascinating read and we look forward to doing just that.  Hang on…isn’t Banksy’s publisher…Banksy?  So what’s his excuse then?

While there punters can also take in the work of Gregory Euclide’s “Whose Land We Laid Down & Wiped Away” show, which continues.

Space Invader – Art4Space

 

On Friday Lazardes hosts the London Premiere of Space Invader’s film Art4Space.  Shoreditch Street Art Tours guests will be familiar with the work of Space Invader .   All we know thus far about the film is that the mosaic meister does somehow genuinely invade space.   It will be interesting to see if Space Invader avoids the arrest episode which accompanied his time in New York recently for a screening there.

Lazerides hosts but the film is being screened offsite at Soho House.  There are two fully screenings which we understand are likely to have been fully booked and there is rumour that a third 9pm screening has been added.   RSVP definitely required (info@lazinc.com)

Street Art Gallery Private Views on October First Thursday

Thursday night is the big one, specially when it’s the first Thursday of the month yes?  So, if you are an artist or a gallerist and you arrange your opening private view on the first Thursday of the month you sort of hope that you aren’t just going to be lost in the noise.  So well done and big ups Aida, Shuby and Collagism for taking a punt on First Thursday and being the ONLY private view in the Shoreditch Street Art Tour diary.

Adia, Shuby and Collagism are HYSTERIA.

Aida, Shuby, Collagism = Hysteria

We love Aida and we love Shuby and have been seeing their paste up work on the street for years, we are pretty sure we are going to love Collagism after seeing her work in the gallery tomorrow.
