THE EXHIBITION is bringing together three artists, two from New York and one from London.The title of the show directly relates to the nature of their work, as all three artists have made their transition from the street to the gallery; operating both inside and outside the system.
Each artist however has their own speciality; ADAM NEATE is famous for leaving his paintings on cardboard on the streets, RONENGLISH for hijacking billboards, and JOSE PARLA's work has evolved from his caligraphic experimental lettering on walls to powerful textured paintings which draw their inspiration from urban decay.
Work on show includes brand new figurative paintings from ADAM NEATE, a
series of 'Marilyn Mickey' portraits on canvas by RON ENGLISH and three new
powerful paintings by JOSE PARLA.
