Stolen Space Gallery Present ‘Going Against The Grain’ with OKER

StolenSpace is very proud to present ‘Going Against The Grain’ the inaugural solo show by one of the most prolific writers of the London graffiti scene, OKER.

OKER has been painting for over 20 years. His throw-ups were all over South London, and with trains running across the city, he has made an incredible contribution to the London scene, influencing many of the younger generation of writers throughout the years. He is one of the very few graffiti writers in England who can call themselves ‘all city’, having been up in every area of London.

OKER claims he turned to graffiti as a form of self medication in his difficult early teenage years. When he walked along the tracks with other like minds, no one was interested in his personal life, this world was purely about him as a graffiti artist, as ‘OKER’.

After a short spell of living in New York and building relationships with the Kings of New York, he then returned to London bringing NYC’s bombing style with him, gaining the respect from artists such as Eine, Barry McGee, KR and Banksy to name a few…

In 2000 he was sentenced for graffiti and again in 2013 for 2 years for painting on trains. This lead him to rethink his practice, ‘Going Against The Grain’ shows not only OKER’s artistic development, but also a development in the way he thinks about his art and an important step in his artistic practice. He can now safely move forward without the worry of being arrested on his opening night. He’s served his time, and this inaugural solo show will show how far he has come.

Stolen Space Gallery, 17 Osborn Street, London, E1 6TD.
The exhibition opens with a private view on the 4th August from 6 - 9pm, the exhibition will continue at the space until the 28th August 2016.

Kaleidoscope Exhibtion At Fold Gallery, London

FOLD is pleased to present a show that will bring a short, sharp shock of colour to the holiday season.

In Kaleidoscope they are presented with seven artists whose practices tackle intense colour in radically different ways. The use of Colour can be approached in an arbitrary manner but artistic development can only occur when the many variables are controlled and understood. 
Each of the artists shown here have developed their own inherent sense of the ‘right’ colour choice. From monochromatic coolness to explosive rainbow-like palettes, they each present a unique vision of how to liberate colour to stimulate and energise the viewer.

Curated by Dominic Beattie
FOLD, 158 New Cavendish St, London W1W 6YW.
Private View Thursday 4th August 2016, 6 - 8pm.
Exhibition is on show until the 27th August.

Yann Le Bec, Launch Party At KK Outlet, Hoxton

Yann Le Bec’s exhibition, Dog Days is a collection of new paintings that play out like the stills from a French thriller. Yann's monochromatic paintings depict seemingly innocuous scenes, many from the French countryside; a naked torso moist with perspiration, a lone walker on an isolated road, a swimmer and a man looking through trees.

Beneath the surface of this postcard-like scenery there is a slight feeling of unease, a sense of longing and in some scenes fear. Why is the swimmer reaching for a knife? What is the sad figure on the bed contemplating? Will the girl make it out of the way of the car coming round the bend?!

Come down to the launch at KK Outlet and find out...

KK Outlet, 42 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6PB.

Launch party: Tuesday 12 July, 7-9pm
Exhibition runs: 12 – 30 July
