A couple of weeks back we were delighted to make a visit to Artista’s studio in Soho for a pop-up one day exhibition presenting Artista’s ‘Toast Takeover’ exhibition in Soho showcasing a collection of past and present ‘A Flying Toast’ artworks including large canvases, clothes, prints and hand finished 3D objects. Presenting a broad range of mediums and styles on display to see, offering a snapshot in to the range of styles which Artista works with other than just painting walls offering depth to the characters with which she works and brings to life in a story of their own in every work, truly impressive to see how far Artista has taken her ‘A Flying Toast‘ character.
Feature wall painted in the studio by Artista for the occasion, it pretty much sums up what the day was about.

‘Envy’ – Spray Paint on Canvas. One of our favourite works on display in the studio, a piece that was part of a series inspired by the seven deadly sins. In this case the sin depicted is Envy, illustrated by Artista’s Pyramid characters being envious of the success of Artista’s Toast character and therefore punishing them accordingly.
