SOUTH-AMERICAN STREET ARTIST MAKES LONDON DEBUT
From 27 October to 11 November, East London’s High Roller Society will be exhibiting the first-ever show in the capital from Columbian artist Stinkfish.
Entitled ‘Espina’, which is Spanish for ‘thorns’, the exhibition will present the abstract street-level portraiture through which the Columbian has made his name. A full-time street artist, Stinkfish travels the world decorating streets and grey spaces with enormous, eye-popping characterisations of anonymous faces he plucks from his every-day encounters in life.
Stinkfish’s work can be found on the walls of cities across South America and Europe, and Bristol residents will recognise his work from the massive mural he recently painted in the city’s Stokes Croft area. This exhibition will see a new body of work from the artist on display, plus the release of a new print.
Stinkfish: ‘Epina’ @ High Roller Society, 10 Palmers Road, London E2 0SY
27 October – 11 November 2012, Open Thursday – Sunday, noon – 6pm.
