Jeff Soto (interviewed) opened his UK solo show to a packed house at StolenSpace yesterday. Soto’s arrival in London had certainly stirred up lots of fans eager to meet him and see his work in person for the first time. AM was on hand to take some shots and spoke to people who had traveled from all across the UK to be there. They were rewarded with a strong, cohesive set of paintings, ranging from small to huge in size, with the largest measuring 5′ x 4′.

One fan proudly showed Jeff his full sleeve tattoo based on his images and Jeff happily chatted with and signed and sketched for fans.

Watch for more details soon of a second piece painted on the street across from the gallery (first piece here) and check out more photographs from the opening after the jump…
