Location: The Outsiders London
Dates: Friday 29th of November 2013 to Tuesday 24th of December 2013
The Outsiders London enthusiastically welcomes Cyclops for his first solo exhibition with the gallery. Cyclops's art has evolved considerably since his days as a stalwart of London's Burning Candy graffiti crew. His stunning new work fuses Baroque-era portraiture with late Renaissance vanitas paintings, vaporous street art motifs, religious iconography, and contemporary photorealism.
Nine large canvases of striking female figures, painted in oils, acrylic and spray paint, dominate the exhibition. A corresponding selection of still life works demonstrate his skills at the easel and grasp of contemporary culture, featuring for instance a skull wearing a cap from Supreme, the cult New York streetwear label.
