What do you get when you put an empty, rundown building together with the UK’s hottest urban/street gallery? Just add a little graffiti and you’ll get one of the freshest shows of 2008!
As promised, Arrested Motion was on hand for the exclusive preview opening of the Lazarides Outsiders show. In attendance was a veritable who’s who of the UK Urban art genre. Antony Micallef, Conor Harrington, David Choe, JR and even Steve Lazarides himself was on hand to mingle with the packed 2 floor show! Even a few surprise NYC artists (Kaws and Ron English) were on hand to attend the show.We were lucky to get in some pictures of the show with so many people packed inside with even more waiting to get into tonight’s preview opening.
Even from the outside, one could see that this show was something special. David Choe, JR and Conor Harrington created distinct murals on the actual building which the show used for the Pop-up location. Inside, the property was transformed into an Urban showcase for the stars of the Laz lineup. Simply put, the level of worked displayed at this exhibition was stunning. Our cameras were on hand to snap up some tasty visuals…
