Sweet Toof and Rolfcarlwerner at BSMT
BSMT SPACE is closing off 2017 with a one of a kind collab show combining the futuristic styles of Swedish writer Rolfcarlwerner with the gums and teeth of Hackney's finest graffoholic Sweet Toof. The basement gallery will be clad with cut-out forms from life size Skull Humanoids to cans and hi-rollers, as well as a multivariate of beautiful objects created by the artists individually. 

'CUT AND RUN' will be welcoming Sweet Toof back to Hackney- one of it's long-time and most recognisable Street Artists who's work has remained consistently synonymous with the industrial yards and canal sides of the borough during the past 15 years. We'll also be introducing London to old-school Swedish Graffiti writer and painter Rolfcarlwerner, a self-taught artist who has been painting since the 80's. He has been involved in public art commissions and exhibitions in Sweden for years and is widely known for his colourful, futuristic imagery.

No catalogues, no previews- you've got to get yourself there on the opening night of December 14th if you'd like to see it first! You'll also be treated to the sheer pleasure of Brewheadz, Tottenham's finest micro-brewery, who are sponsoring the opening night!

CUT AND RUN will open Dec 14th, 6pm and run until Dec 23rd 7pm. The gallery will reopen in the New Year on Jan 3rd with the show closing on Jan 14th.

Printclub's 2017 Print-ern Show



After the brilliant success of their last 'Printernship,' Dalston based Print Club are super excited to share details of their latest, equally as inspiring offering from illustrators Francesca Tiley and Rozalina Burkova!

Towards the end of last year, they selected both girls to take part in their rewarding 'Printernship' scheme, allowing them to create a number of prints, whilst developing their own personal styles. The 'Printernship' opportunity allows recent graduates to print and create work in Print Club's studio, coupled with free desk space and guidance from fellow printers and technicians. Offering financial support along with their own creative direction and printing expertise, the scheme results in a series of prints from each artist exclusive to Print Club.

The exhibition will feature original works, limited edition screenprints and on one off ceramics by each artist and will also be the debut of their exciting collaboration together, with hand painted murals and exclusive prints available on the opening night.

For the opening night they have been sponsored by the amazing Poptails by LAPP!

Location: Print Club, Miller's Ave Unit 3, E8 2 London, United Kingdom

Stinkfish at BSMT Space in Dalston, London


For 15 years Stinkfish has been painting on the street, but this September BSMT SPACE will proudly open his first solo exhibition of works on paper.

This Colombia-based artist considers himself a Graffitist, his life revolves around graffiti and its principles of independence, anonymity, freedom and illegality. Painting with conviction without permission! The street is important to Stinkfish, he sees the common neighbourhoods and free spaces as an opportunity for people to politicise and observe at the same level.

'Portraits in Transit' is a story of the journey of his works, portraits that come from the street and transcend these spaces to return to the street. They are ordinary people captured by photograph, their image translated into his signature bright colour palette and re-imagined in a new context.

'Portraits in Transit' will be running from September 22nd to October 8th, with a private view on September 21st, 6pm. Thanks to Amigos for coming on board for this event, expect some ice cold beers at the opening! To attend the private view please RSVP: info@bsmt.co.uk.

BSMT SPACE is open Tue -Sat 12-7 and Sun 11-5.
You can find us at 5d Stoke Newington Rd, London, N168BH.
