Sickboy, acclaimed British graffiti artist, brings his second major solo exhibition Heaven & Earth to London’s The Old Truman Brewery this November.
‘Heaven & Earth’ is a celebration of earthly sins and heavenly fantasies which outlines his figurative fall from grace into his own darkest unconscious in collaboration with some of the biggest names in the Global urban art scene.
If you think you’re unfamiliar to Sickboy’s work, you may remember the prolific street work, such as the ‘Temple’, sprayed in the McDonalds palette, on walls and wheelie bins worldwide. The show is inspired by semiotics and symbolism and the surreal landscape workings of artists such as Heironymus Bosch. His are confessional reworkings of deeply personal narratives and depictions of modern surealism.
Also presented are four major installations, including a walk-in confessional booth and works by eminent contemporaries including: D*Face, Eine and Paul Insect amongst others.
“The CONFESS concept was inspired by a close-up photograph of my hand, painting a canvas,” Sickboy explains. “I thought ‘that hand’s done some bad things.’”
