Openings: Word to Mother – “Can’t Afford to be Broke” @ White Walls

London-based artist, Word to Mother’s (interviewed) latest offerings were put on display last Saturday evening at White Walls in an exhibition entitled Can’t Afford to be Broke (previewed). With this show, he took his weathered assemblage style and incorporated past and current pop icons with typography to create a commentary on the current state of our economy and society. The pieces evoke a sense of desperation, yet with some humor and color, there is still some optimism. In addition to the mixed media pieces on wood, […]

Openings: “Love & Hate” @ StolenSpace

Last month, the StolenSpace Gallery in London hosted a show that opened around Valentine’s Day appropriate to the theme entitled Love & Hate. For the group exhibition, most artists created two works, one for each of the strong emotions that often seems linked hand in hand depending on the situation. Because of the concept behind the showing, the pieces that were presented had an interesting dichotomy that made the exhibition well worth seeing. More photos after the jump by Henrik Haven…

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Since the last London Street Art Roundup, Shoreditch has yet again been buzzing with activity. Much of this is due to Moniker Art Fair hitting Shoreditch for the second year running with a collection of artists around the globe filling the space of Village Underground. A highlight for AM has to be this great piece by Word to Mother (interviewed) on one of the panels outside the show which coincided with his solo show Essence of Adolescence at Stolen Space, alongside Australian duo Dabs Myla […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Some great street art surprises have popped up around Shoreditch since the last AM London Instagram Roundup.

In addition, Australian artist Ghostpatrol has been busy collaborating with Kid Acne, Ema and Dscreet on an amazing wall in Dalston; and he has also been working with Malarky (a […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Again it’s been a busy couple of weeks for street art in London. AM was happy to catch sight of some new work by Mr Penfold, collaborating with Sweet Toof and a brilliant bandit style shutter with the prolific Malarky whose work seems to be going up everywhere. Either collaborating with Ronzo, Pop 187, Kata, Word to Mother and Vinnie Nylon, the streets seem to be taking on a bold and colourful make over with playful characters adorning the shutters and walls of Shoreditch. We also […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Since the last AM London Instagram Roundup, quite a bit has being going on. First up, it was great to see Mobstr’s newly painted shutters with the words “Huh?” repeated in black and white to make up one giant “Huh?” Also, the side door to Stolen Space Gallery had a wonderful make over by Word to Mother, very nice. Sweet Toof is still being very active hitting up another roller piece with artist Smells, and also some other new work around from him too. There […]

Videos: “Madre” (Fame Festival 2010)

In the midst of the excitement from getting confirmation that there will be a Fame Festival this year, a video from last year’s event was recently released. Focusing mainly on Word to Mother and his contribution to the one of the best, if not the best street art festivals out there, the footage follows WTM as he works on various mural around the little Italian town and catches some of the work from other artists in the process. Entitled Madre, the short film is the […]
