In the last decade London’s East End has seen some remarkable changes. The wave of gentrification has forced the once industrial sprawl and urban wasteland of the area into adopting a different facade. BSMT Space presents ‘East End Mob‘ showcasing the work from 12 iconic artists who have been actively painting in the area before and during this change, their Character-driven style synonymous with the walls and landscape of the East End.
The line-up includes A.CE, Atomiko, Coloquix, Cranio, Dscreet, Mau Mau, Mighty Mo, Pez, Rowdy, Sweet Toof, Tizer and Vinnie Nylon- ‘East End Mob’ is an authentic exhibition and much needed nod to some of the biggest pillars in East London’s Street Art and Graffiti scene.
With roots planted in the surf and country vibes of the North Devon coast, Mau Mau brings an air of rural sophistication to the art he has been knocking out for over a decade. He has chalked up a reputation through the environmental and politically astute threads that have consistently run through his artwork. His pieces are bitterly topical with a tongue-in-cheek sweetener.
Mighty Mo‘s motif first started to appear on London’s train tracks, streets, and rooftops more than 10 years ago. Originally working in North London he then spread East, where he collaborated with his fellow Burning Candy Crew members Sweet Toof, Gold Peg, Cyclops, Rowdy, and Tek33.
The private view for ‘East End Mob’ will be April 20th 6pm, fuelled by The Fourpure Brewing Co.
Open thereafter until May 14th, Tues to Sat 12-7 and Sun 11-5.
