Nathan and Steve work side by side in the streets of London mixing styles, exchanging ideas, making art which reflects their environment and finally now they have an art show. The exhibition will be showcasing their most recent work, colourful birds and cheeky Demons.
Nathan Bowen is a guerrilla street artist, he actively works as an art vigilante, seeking for dull, lifeless spaces around London, also describing himself as the 'Artistic Gangster', Nathan has a lawless approach to street art. By openly using his imagination he transforms these old walls, creating new and inspiring works of art. His style is unique, fast, dynamic and unpredictable. His signature characters known as the 'The Demons' invade building site hoardings all over London,openly using the streets as a gallery.
In 2012, Nathan starred on the BBC television show 'The Apprentice', where the contestants had to sell his art work in a pop up gallery as part of an urban art challenge. Since then Nathan has spread his love for art worldwide, painting internationally, keeping his ideas fresh and edgy, reminding people that we all have imaginations.

Steve McCracken (NONE HERE) paints birds on the streets of London. He sees the bird as a symbol of freedom, beauty and movement, instantly recognisable to the audience as such. He combines bright colours with expressive and gestural painting techniques. Over time the wings of his birds have developed into a wave shape, reflecting his background growing up by the sea and surfing, conveying the idea of being free in the water. By doing this he offers his audience a brief escape from the city rush, allowing them to get lost in the colours and movement of the wing/wave. As well as this he gives the birds a human like eye which really looks at the viewer allowing them to instantly connect with the birds as well as giving them emotion, personality and a deliberately anthropomorphic quality. Steve's awareness and interest in birds has always been apparent throughout his work, from his coffee cup series created while at university, to his earliest abstract expressionist work.
