Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
Snapshot is about the next generation of street artists. Featuring a selection of the best of the new style of street artists finding their way onto the scene. Art so fresh the paint’s still wet!
The street art scene has recently seen a group of new like-minded artists that share a strong illustrative influence and come away from the traditional throw-ups and wild style. These artists are really pushing the boundaries of street or urban art as we know it. Our show aims to be a ‘snapshot’ of these artist’s latest works.
Leading artists – Mr Zero, Fatheat, SNUB23 and Inkfetish
Also featuring; C215, Captain Kris, Pinky, Ashab, Cb1mag1, My Dog Sighs, SPZero76, Whoam Irony, Snic, Eyesaw, Mishfit, Mysterious Al plus some serious superstars TBA.
Mr Zero and Fatheat and being flown in to join, SNUB and Inkfetish to paint some prominent walls in Brighton just before the show opens on Friday 2nd May to coincide with the exhibition.
There will also be some live painting events at the gallery and around town and some guest artists dropping in work while the show is up and running so there will always be something new to be seen on our walls.
Work in the show
There will be a mix of canvas, sketches and prints, plus some work in 3D.
There will also be an exclusive set of prints released from Mr Zero, Fatheat, SNUB23 and Inkfetish consisting of digital/giclee prints with screen-printing, in a low edition. We hope to use a selection of these in a free art-drop around Brighton to promote both the show and the artists. We will also have a box set of the final prints on offer during the show.
All the artists’ work will be available online via our website and direct from the gallery.
SNUB has kindly helped with some of the curation of the show. He has been responsible for finding some of the great local walls to paint and secured sponsorship from Kobra (paint), Dark Star Brewery (drink) and Skylift (cherrypickers).
