‘The Other SUMMER EXHIBITION’ At The Lollipop Gallery

The Lollipop’s latest exhibition is well under way, and we here at London Calling, finally made it along at the weekend, to what is certainly an incredible group show. The exhibition is entitled ‘The Other SUMMER EXHIBITION’ and is set to run parallel to the Royal Acadamy Summer Exhibition, which has run annually without interruption since 1769 and offers a snapshot of contemporary art through a massive group show. The Lollipop Gallery have set to run a their show in conjunction and defiance of the Royal Academy canon, by showcasing artists that wouldn’t be considered for display during the Royal Acadamy annual display of contemporary artists.

The exhibition presents a superb range of styles displayed in this massive group showing, which features some 120 artists, with the highlights for us here being provided by Dan Kitchener, Sweet Toof, Furia and Maggio. What is great about the portion of the show featuring works from practicing Street Artists who in some cases offer up works similar to their Street Art output, whilst some of them offer up some works that are a complete and pleasantly interesting departure from such public output.

The show runs until August 27th, so if you are in London and haven’t already attended, be sure to pay this eclectic collection of contemporary artists, fueled by a healthy dose of Street Artists.

Superb work by Furia 139, depicting a series of portraits of somewhat unorthodox subjects, infamous and notorious dictators from the last century. It’s not everyday you stand before a portrait of Adolf Hitler and are so impressed.
