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.

StolenSpace is proud to present 'Something Melty This Way Comes' the new solo show and pop up show by legendary New York based artist Buff Monster.

The show will feature a selection of new works as well as a take-over of the StolenSpace shop area.The man himself will be in town for the opening, signing copies of his book 'Stay Melty' and his new 'Melty manifesto'.

“For this show, I’ll be taking over the front gallery space, turning it into a hybrid gallery show / pop-up shop. I’ve always liked making small-edition collectibles; to me it’s a very natural extension of the work that I make. I recently refocused all the patches, pins, toys and other goodies under the Stay Melty brand. So we’ll have a bunch of those goodies in the shop there (and some new suprises as well)."
