The Outsiders London
Friday 25th of July 2014 to Saturday 30th of August 2014
UK street art pioneer Sickboy makes his first London gallery appearance this summer with Make It Last Forever, a multi-disciplinary exhibition designed specifically for The Outsiders London.
The bold, comprehensive showcase features a unique body of surreal, cosmic canvases alongside a technicolour installation inspired from personal assemblages and years of sacred memorabilia. Make It Last Forever celebrates a poignant embodiment of the artist's inspirations and creative endeavours to date, and provides a unique multimedia diary that seeks to outlive its creator. Sickboy's playful visual language will reappear in several guises throughout the show, including his iconic temple shrines, ever-popular superman sculpture and distinctive sickboy coffin. Utilising a variety of mediums across both floors of the gallery the new body of work provides an unconventional narrative in the form of abstract large-scale canvases, sculpture and interactive installation.
Successfully transposing his controversial and subversive street exploits into the gallery environment, Sickboy seeks to highlight our transcient and fragile existence by asking how we can Make It Last Forever.
