Right now the UK is melting under a heat wave. We need something melty to save us. Buff Monster is that saviour. Mr. B Monster is heading to London in August for a solo exhibition at StolenSpace Gallery and we can’t wait to see what he brings with him.
To get an idea, Buff gives StolenSpace the low down on his visit…
[quote cite=”Buff Monster”]For this show, I’ll be taking over the front gallery space, turning it into a hybrid gallery show / pop-up shop. I’ve always liked making small-edition collectables; to me, it’s a very natural extension of the work that I make. I recently refocused all the patches, pins, toys and other goodies under the Stay Melty brand. So we’ll have a bunch of those goodies in the shop there (and some new surprises as well).
On the gallery walls, I’ll be showing some small pieces, like the painted flattened spray cans. In 2001, I took some flattened cans and drew characters on them and nailed them around Los Angeles. I did some others in San Francisco in 2006. It’s a format that I always like to revisit, though now I really focus on making them super detailed and showing them in galleries. I’ll be working on a variety of paintings on flat surfaces and some objects as well. It’s going to be a great colourful collection of melty imagery in a variety of sizes and mediums.[/quote]
The Opening Reception will be held on 3rd August at 6pm, with Buff in attendance too. Want a reminder of this awesome event? Of course, you do! Check it out HERE. What are Event Reminders? Good question, check out our latest post on New Features we’ve added to the TTC blog.
