Ghost Theory - gallery work inspired by street art
Notorious east London graffiti artist and photographer Delete is organising three exciting new shows at the Doomed Gallery in Dalston that will bring work from new artists into the gallery space for the first time: the third show in this series is Ghost Theory.
Building on the techniques and obsessions of Street Art, Ghost Theory features eight artists work who outside of the mainstream and use a variety of media to comment on the world around them and present their own personal truths.
With stencils, graffiti, paste-ups, photography, collage and painting - Sean Savant and friends bring voices from the outside into the gallery with a collection of stunning images.

She has also made a large amount of street art that includes paste ups, stencils and spray painted shutters.
