Now we are taking a trip to Dalston where recently in Shackwell Lane Street Artist Sr. X has painted his latest work ‘Smile More’ ahead of his upcoming solo exhibition ‘PORK LOIN ROAST’ at BSMT Space which opens on September 1st. The work very muchin his distinct retro styling enthused with that dash of humour or surrealism making it a work that really grabs your attention upon passing.
Of the upcoming show which we are certain will be one not to be missed, we feel it’s best to let the BSMT Space sum up this upcoming exhibition:
“Billboards and sycophantic PR surround us every day. Mindless, vapid nonsense suffocates us. In a City of totalitarian competition for perfection, where plastic happiness is prized and synthetic optimism rules, perhaps a little darkness is refreshing. And so, welcome to a showcase of warped nostalgia, subversive and darkly funny hallucinations of an innocent and conformist society. This is the artistic interpretation of the mind of a compliant citizen, good neighbour and graffiti artist, and sees the nihilistic irony in our pleasant and abundant society. Sometimes the world of commercialism can seem sickly sweet, like a soda you’ve had too much of. Well, consider Sr. X’s work a drop of vinegar in that soda, a dash of blackness to mute the deafening nothing noise that surrounds us every day. This is the fly on your pork loin roast.”
