Nelly Duff presents Banger Art

Now in its 10th year, this years Lovebox festival in East London will be celebrating with some impressive headliners including Grace Jones, Chaka Khan, Lana Del Rey, Kelis, Hot Chip & Friendly Fires. Alongside all the live acts and DJ's Lovebox have invited Columbia Road based galley Nelly Duff to celebrate a 'Decade Of Love' with a banger of an art show!

Nelly Duff will be curating an installation of 10 old bangers. Unloved and destined for the scrapheap, they will be recycling these bangers with some painterly pimping by some of the world’s best urban artists. Street Art royalty Ben EINE should cause a big old traffic jam with his original artwork on steel. The awesome impasto imagery of Matt Small offset on a taxi bonnet is set to be a sight to behold, and East London favorite Sweetoof’s roadworthy play on classical based imagery will prove an experience. Dan Hillier’s abstract splicing of Victoriana imagery from a distinctly British time gone by will also feature, along with Dr D’s playfully direct mode of social and political commentary, and the dream-like painting of Will Barras. These are artists of the highest caliber, with characteristically unpredictable processes.

Together they will create 10 distinctly individual artworks set to steal the show. The banger artworks along side additional smaller works will be on display at Lovebox throughout the three day extravaganza, running from 15th - 17th June 2012.
