UK based graffiti artist Petro has been contributing to the depletion of the ozone layer for 25 years or so, and his instantly recognisable style is now on view in Sheffield gallery Bradbury & Blanchard. Hey You showcases Petro’s signature handstyle, lettering and drip-infused symbology and it’s good to see exhibitions like this being brought to the North of England by B&B – the gallery owners and curators are artists themselves, so watch out for more exiting shows in the future.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the gallery have created an exclusive two colour hand-pulled screenprint celebrating PETRO’s exotic hand-styles and dripping semiotics in an edition of just 30, plus a slickly produced 48 page signed and numbered (edition of 150) zine illustrating Petro’s missions across the globe. At £10 it looks like a great buy.
The exhibition runs until July 28th. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
