It's a fantastic show, featuring a few site specific installations, and a host of new canvases based on Spiderman and Superman comics, all D*Faced. The entire show had pretty much sold (since this was the opening, we're guessing through some private collectors) which isn't bad going.
One of our favourite contemporary artists, Paul Insect, has a new site-specific show, Poison, opening at a former bath house somewhere in the Kings Cross area of London on 12 September. The show will feature "twelve skeletal bunny girl sculptures" (that's Miss August pictured above), and a series of new paintings and prints. The exact location of the show will be announced on the Lazarides site on 11 September.
Insect's last show, Bullion, was bought up in its entirety when Damien Hirst pulled a Saatchi and nabbed the lot for his 'Murder Me' collection; so this should be one worth keeping an eye on.
We made our way up the road to Waterloo on Saturday to check out the new work on display at the fantastic Cans Festival.
The street-art show began back in May this year, set up by Blank Expression, turning a disused railway tunnel underneath the old Eurostar terminal into an open air exhibition space for stencil monkeys and spraycan kids. They've just had a 're-hang', with a whole new set of art dripping off the walls, while some of the old stuff is still there for you to check out.
