This Thursday Unit 5 Gallery opened its group exhibition, presenting a spectacular collection of sculpture, installation, and three-dimensional works from a stellar line-up of local and international street artists.
In the first London group show of its kind, ‘In Depth’ shines the spotlight on the often clandestine yet ever expanding world of street art sculpture. The show features works from over 20 highly acclaimed artists; from those known primarily for their sculptural work on the streets, to those who are renowned for their large-scale murals and sought after canvases.
Featuring works from: Axel Void (ES), Ben Eine (UK), Biancoshock (IT), Cityzen Kane (UK), Dont Fret (US), Edwin (AU), Herakut (DE), Hin (HK), Isaac Cordal (ES), Jimmy C (AU), Jo Peel (UK), Jonesy (UK), Lily Mixe (FR), Mark McClure (UK), Mobstr (UK), Peeta Ead (IT), Pixel Pancho (IT), Push Crew (DE), Ronzo (DE), Slinkachu (UK), Will Coles (AU) and more…
In the lead-up to the show, local and visiting artists engage in a series of organised and unsanctioned street projects across London, continuing into the opening event where every wall, floor, and ceiling of the huge 1600 square foot warehouse space are adorned with works of all shapes and sizes.
An astonishing array of technique, styles and ideas will be on display, from minuscule characters to bold classical busts; from an immersion into a computer game to delicate bronze statuettes. Purpose built 3D master pieces span whole walls and the show’s centre piece – a reconstructed, re-imagined felled tree – combine to create a unique and captivating experience for the viewer to explore.
‘In Depth’ provides a chance to encounter the first street works in London from several visiting international artists. It is also a unique first opportunity for fans and collectors in London to purchase rare three-dimensional works from some of the most renowned street artists and muralists of our times.
‘In Depth‘ is visible at the Gallery until 26th February 2017.
