Beach London are delighted to present the debut gallery solo exhibition of London-based graffiti artist Malarky.
After a two-year period painting in Barcelona with some of the city’s most prominent writers, Malarky adapted their sun-kissed, summer-loving, sangria-drinking, colour-bursting style. Upon returning to London in 2011, he took over the walls and shutters of East London, bringing a splash of fun to an area known for it’s dejective, grey and miserable ‘Street Art’. One of London’s most recognisable writers, few visitors to Shoreditch will have missed his ubiquitous Fox character, and his array of colourful friends unleashing chaos.
Having spent the first half of 2013 living and working in Stoke-On-Trent, Malarky has applied his colour-soaked aesthetic to the city’s most infamous export - ceramics - creating his own versions of iconic pieces: hand-glazed plates, pottery, and…spaniels.
Puppy Snatcher will be Malarky’s first exhibition of this new body of work. It will also present a new direction for the artist, whose work, until this point, has been predominently two-dimensional.
Malarky’s recent exhibitions include ‘WHO DARES’ at Airspace Gallery, Stoke, with GoldPeg, Deadbeat Summer, at the Lomography Store, London, and Pick Me Up graphic arts festival at Somerset House.
There will be an opening party on Wednesday, December 4th, from 6 - 9 PM.
