Join in with V22’s Young London 2018 artist John Costi, to explore his take on examining working class ideals of masculinity, through re-enacting familiar childhood/ adolescent games fought on the school playground/ estate.


V22’s Young London 2018 returns with a large-scale exhibition of London’s next generation of artists. The exhibition also includes Young London Friday Lates, a series of weekly events taking place after-hours, providing artists with a more intimate environment in which to present further aspects of their work and to exchange ideas with visitors. 

The Po Cruddy Buddys AKA The Po Cryptic Mystics AKA The Poor Cripple Shoe Shine Boys are a band of warriors that honed their artistic valour on the streets of London. Each member found their way into the art world by first painting graffiti and are enlisted hero's in said sub culture. 

The Po Cruddy ethos is to work with what’s at hand, in turn revealing new ways of making through ingenuity. This practice has been solidified over years of diving into skips, amassing materials and hopeless 'borrowing'.

Groups of 8-10 participants are invited to sign up and play Patball, Kerb/y/sy, Nutmeg Rush, Money/Penny up the Wall and the Magic Ring Game. The artist will act as referee and each participant will receive a limited run print of a legal disclaimer.
