Shoreditch Street Art Gallery Openings 6 Feb 2014

“Back To Black”

C215

One big deal in the social diary for this week:

C215 Back To Black

C215 Back To Black

and that’s the opening of a new solo show by French stencil maestro C215.  I believe this is his 4th solo show in London and that’s not including the project installation at Moniker Art Fair 2012.

C215 2008

C215 was a revelation when he first brought his complex stencils to London’s streets in early 2008.  He became a huge star of Banksy’s Cans Festival that year and has been a frequent visitor since.  He  is an energetic traveller and some of his best work appears in remote developing countries where he has an uncanny knack of getting up stencil images which reflect the community he is visiting.

C215 2009 (5 yrs ago this week)

We anticipate unusual non-canvas painting surfaces being given the C215 multi layer stencil treatment.

Art Previews Thursday 05 Dec

Two East London street art and graffiti shows in the Shoreditch Street Art Tours diary for this Thursday and conveniently they aren’t too far from eachother.   Also an interesting show in the West End, making that before 9pm could be a bit of a stretch!

Shok-1: X-Rainbow Show

Shok-1

Shok-1 will be familiar to guests of Shoreditch Streer Art Tours as the  virtuoso spraycan artist who pops up at two or three locations en route with amazing spray painted X-Ray bones artwork.    This will be the first show in quite a while at the Pictures On Walls premises which has been closed as a “walk in gallery” for quite some time.

Pinspired

Street artist Pins aka Pinspired, not to be confused with Paul Insect also know as PINS, launches a tea infused solo show at a west end gallery.   If you’ve seen Lipweed erupting over Shoreditch shutters and walls, that’s Pinspired.  No sugar thanks.

Cyclops, Borf, Giles Walker and Candice Tripp – Thursday 28th Nov 2013

Three intriguing shows open this Thursday (28th), none of them in Shoreditch.  RSVPs required for all these events.

 

Giles Walker and Candice Tripp:

I’m Never Shopping Here Again

Anyone who saw Giles Walker’s “Last Supper” gothic bacchanalian animatronics extravaganza at Black Rat Press back in 2012 will be praying for more of the same, though how his more potty mouthed creations might interact with the waif-child terror of Candice Tripp will be fascinating to see.   This is just on Lower Marsh at the far exit from the Leake St tunnels and the gallery is saying that all private view slots are fully booked and your best bet if you aren’t booked is to catch the public opening from Saturday.

John Tsombikos – The Borf Show

London, street artists,gallery,show,private view,Giles Walker, Candice Tripp, Borf, Cyclops

Although this was very much a Washington/East Coast thing, quite a few here in the UK will recall observing the mist of confusion and controversy among American fans as to whether Borf was a collective, a concept or a tagger.   The spirit of whimsical slogans and tagging captured on canvas, or abstract colour scribbles?

Cyclops: The Way Of All Flesh

London, street artists,gallery,show,private view,Giles Walker, Candice Tripp, Borf, Cyclops

We’ve been big fans of the work of Cyclops for many years, a fine art education has moved him on a long way from the Basquiatesque images of the middle of the last decade.  What is curious is the reversion to his street artist pseudonym rather than the real name that has appeared over the door in more recent shows.
