AboutSICKBOY presents Logopop Bristol
at FRIEND & CO gallery
February 5-27, 2010
Acclaimed UK street artist, Sickboy presents Logopop Bristol, a solo exhibition of new limited edition work and a site-specific installation in Bristol this February.
In what will be the artist's second Logopop show in the UK, Sickboy returns to Bristol, where he established himself as a graffiti artist, for this month-long exhibition at the Friend & Co gallery.
Sickboy recreates the lysergic symbolism that underpins much of his work, presenting a new collection which unravels the relationship between the artist's complex and imaginatively-detailed artworks and his signature simple, bold and raw urban interventions.
In addition to original artworks, the artist presents his Logopops series artworks available in various sizes which can be interconnected to create bespoke, one-off compositions of Sickboy art.
Launching an eye-watering visual assault on audiences using mixed media and digital technology, Sickboy presents a series of dynamic and surprising show features which have become a hallmark of this artist.

About the Artist: A leading artist to emerge from Bristol's infamous graffiti scene, Sickboy's humorous work has cemented his place in the upper echelons of the British street art movement. He is one of the first UK artists to use a logo in place of a tag, and his red and yellow street logo known as 'The Temple' can be seen on walls and wheelie bins worldwide. A long-serving artist with Pictures on Walls, Sickboy has built up one of the largest bodies of street art works in UK history and he is tipped by the leading financial press as one of the movement's most investable artists. His temples, slogans and audacious stunts including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern in 2008 have landed him global recognition.
