Brockley street art are warmly welcomed up to E2 and theprintspace gallery for the show which opens on 1st December. The exhibition is the first collaboration by theprintspace and Brockley Street Art. ENDS will feature original hand-crafted works by Hunto, Attai, Skeleton Cardboard, Neonita, ArtMongers, bAMBOpINK, Survival Techniques.
The exhibition marks the first major gallery showcase for the street art collective, this project aims to celebrate the many voices that make up Brockley Street Art, with artists from across the globe featuring in the collaboration. The show promises a diverse, visually arresting mixture of creativity centred around themes of origin, territory and dislocation.
This exhibition not only plays on strong themes within urban youth culture where postcode is synonymous with territorial allegiance, but also on the medium of street art which by its very nature is location centric and interacts with and often plays on its surrounding. Now more than ever location & origin are strong factors in our collective and individual identities.
Brockley street art’ goal is to encourage an inclusive, creative environment through their programme of local and international artists coming together to enrich the community. Through their art they aim to counter a growing feeling of alienation and detachment within contemporary society.
Originally established as a joint partnership between Global Street Art and popular London interest guide, Londonist, Brockley Street Art Festival is now owned and run by a dedicated team of local residents who invite international artists to participate in creating a showcase of stunning murals and original public art alongside lesser known emerging talent, throughout Brockley and its surrounding neighbourhoods.
All of the works featuring in the exhibition are available as limited edition fine-art prints, powered by thehub, and will help raise money for the Brockley Street Art Festival in June 2017, which aims to find local talented artists and give them the platform to present work alongside established names.
