BILL LONDON, OFFICIALLY ONE OF THE BEST GRAFFITI ARTISTS
IN THE WORLD, AT THE RAREKIND GALLERY
The RareKind Gallery, London, is proud to present the first ever solo show by Bill London; joint winner of last weekend’s Write For Gold, global graffiti competition in Germany.
Officially one of the UK’s and now the world’s most skilled graffiti artists with a career spanning ten years, Bill London has consistently raised the bar for London Graffiti. His skill, subtlety and innovative subject matter have buyers champing at the bit to get their hands on his illusive canvases.
Influenced by an eclectic mix of architectural line, bold colour, traditional tattoo and oriental art, Bill London applies the cloak and dagger elements of purist graffiti ‘Wild Style’ (camouflaged lettering and words through intricate manipulation) with delicate aesthetic elements and layering to create hypnotic final pieces, which can be appreciated on infinite levels. Alongside these wild-style canvases, the ‘They Seek Him Here’ show also includes a series of 3 illustrative, concept pieces, exploring themes on Britain’s dark, alluring urban and social landscape; and as part of the exhibition, an entire wall of the 1,000ft gallery has been covered with small canvasses overlaid with a graffiti mural, which will then be divided up as small artworks.
The exhibition runs from Friday 10th July until Friday 7th August 2009.
