remi rough in the village
the fall of the rebel angels
remi rough was born in south-east london, where he has lived and worked in the city ever since. he happens to be a local in my neighbourhood too. ooooooo. he is a leading figure within th new movement of urban modernist painter (graffuturists/graffuturism) who have adopted the theories and practices of the modern masters that preceeded them.
his current exhibition ‘home’ at scream gallery, alludes to london itself and is a return home for the artist – the first solo exhibition of new since 2009. the exhibition runs until the 3rd november.
yesterday evening i attended a book launch at the pace gallery in soho. street art, book art. it is the follow-up book to street art, fine art, which was published in 2014 documenting the extraordinary dulwich outdoor street art gallery. 15 of the original street artists that took part in the project with ingrid beazly, were given copies of the book with blank white covers. they were left to their own devises.
saturday on my travels, i passed this restaurant, karpo. it is based in kings cross in the megaro hotel on the euston road. it certainly grabbed your attention. i’m guessing that was very much the intension.
