On Tuesday night we went down to the first screening of Toasters film ’Everywhere’. Getting there an hour early and queuing meant a long wait, but this was worth it to receive our free toaster popcorn box.
We have always been a fan of Toasters, (especially Alex!) the simpleness and quirk that toaster has taken over the world over for the last 13 years has made us smile and follow their antics, always keeping an eye out where we might spot our next Toaster.
The film showed the Toasters (Toaster A, B and D) journey over the last decade featuring a variety of famous artists such as D*face giving thier thoughts and opinions on the toaster movement. Highlights being toasters at the Tour de France and World Cup… those toasters are everywhere!
We wont give to much away.. get down to one of the other viewings if you can, if not we’re sure it’ll be up online in the next few months. Check out the video preview of the show to wet your appetite.
After seeing EVOLs new work at Pictures on Walls we thought we’d share some more of his work through the years. Check out his site and Flickr below. If you love it like we do maybe purchase the new print.
The UAM team recently went down to Black Rat Projects at Cargo, London to see a fantastic Swoon installation. The show called ‘Murmuration’ was New York based Swoon’s first solo show in London and features some towering, bold, as well as beautifully delicate works. The show really highlights some of the great work that she has been producing for years on the streets and galleries around the globe.
On Thursday 1st December the UAM team went down to the opening night of POWs winter show. Star of the show Evol had a large variety of original work on display. The show also featured upcoming POW prints from Mighty Mo, Tilt, and Paul Insect to name a few.
Evol, the Berlin based stencilist brought his super detailed concrete jungle stylings applied to his signature mediums of cardboard and street style storage units. We absolutely love the amount of detailing he puts into his work and a big thumbs up at how his street style is still showing through to his gallery work today. Keep and eye out on the blog for more EVOL.
A variety of prints will be available over the next few weeks, and a Banksy early next year, so keep your eye on their site. Alex is really hyped for getting his mitts on a Mighty Mo, they do look amazing.
POWs show runs until 23rd December so go and check it out if you’re around London. The gallery is located at 46-48 Commercial Street, London E1. Nearest tube Aldgate East or Liverpool St.
We at UAM have been following Von’s work for a while now and are massive fans. We absolutely love the fluidity and often intensity he can bring out of a portrait, whilst still being able to show the true emotion from the subject. His work is influenced by nature and popular culture his artwork is both detailed and abstract, being able to flawlessly walk the line between surrealism and documentary portraiture to capture a mood in what appears to be a fleeting moment in time.
Von has a new set of beautifully created limited edition prints, in a hand made collectors edition box named Semblance. If you can’t get down to his launch on the 24th, have a look at the site listed below. You will not be disappointed.
