The Graffiti Life Gallery’s ‘Winter Showcase’

The Graffiti Life Gallery’s ‘Winter Showcase’

The Winter Showcase launched last week at The Graffiti Life Gallery, displaying four incredible artists who are internationally known for their super styles and top notch craftsmanship; a sought after combination that never fails to impress.

Lots of people made their way to the Private View of the ‘The Winter Showcase’ last week. Private View guests had first dibs on the new artwork up for grabs whilst enjoying delicious cocktails made with Auchentoshan’s newly launched expression ‘American Oak’ whisky. For more information on up-coming events and Private Viewings, sign up to The Graffiti Life Gallery Mailing List here.

ALAN MERRICK
While he has exhibited both nationwide (UK) and internationally, much of Alan’s projects are site specific and are often either painted works or wooden sculptures made from found material. Abstract typography plays a key role within the work, by which letters are stripped down to their simplest form; where the essence of classic graffiti remains the focal point. Life and Loss are consistent themes represented within Alan’s work but more recently, both the city and nature have played a heavier role in his works, inspired by the contrasting worlds of city living and spending time working in the forests and countryside of south Germany.

BRK192
Illustrator, Graffiti Writer, Culture Collector and 90´s hip hop lover. BRK192 began developing his skills as a Graffiti Writer back in 1992, where he represented the TLY Crew in Madrid. Producing work continuously since then, BRK192 has made his name as an internationally recognised Graffiti Artist, painting all over the world before finally settling in London. His work has since featured in exhibitions alongside many Street Art and Graffiti icons such as Theirry Noir, Christiaan Nagel and Zomby.

CONZO
Based in Glasgow, Conzo has been steadily creating works for the past decade which span multiple creative disciplines. With an armoury of skills rooted in illustrative graffiti, his work and style is usually character based and features unique image-play on both the ugly and the cute. Having travelled the world with showing his work, Conzo’s satirical paintings, based on humorous nuances of Scottish life keep him solidly tied to his roots and make him one of the UK’s finest artists in his field.

PHILTH
As a graffiti artist, illustrator and graphic designer, Phith’s work is influenced by Art Nouveau, religious symbolism and scientific diagrams; using patterns and sacred geometric archetype as a way of exploring the nature of the universe. Often featuring beautiful women and decadent embellishments, he has one of the most distinctive artist’s styles within the graffiti community. Philth’s work can be seen on streets and galleries across the UK and worldwide; having spent time painting across Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Sheffield, Madrid, Berlin & Barcelona.
