WTF Summer Tour with Bwana Spoons

US based painter and designer Bwana Spoons is taking to the road this summer with his first monograph- Welcome To Forest Island, published by Top Shelf.

Rendered in swaths of psychedelic fluorescents in a flurry of wild yet delicate brushwork, the explosive pages of Welcome to Forest Island establish Bwana Spoons as the cuddliest art-monster around, whose furious imagination is matched only by the intimacy of his handskills.

The thoughtful and provocative design, by Tokyo wunderkind Ian Lynam, elevates Spoons’ opus beyond a “mere” collection of jaw-dropping artwork to a true coffee table gem. Cloth-spined and case-bound, this full-color compendium heralds not only the birth of a wild and woolly nation, but also the arrival of a major new force in the art world.

Along with the book bwana will be bringing- Custom toys, and some sold out goodies. Original art, prints, tees, and more goodies for everybodies eyeballs. And lastly Bwana will come ready to rumble. Prepare to battle at Concrete Hermits Pencil Fighting Championship.
Catch the launch tomorrow night 25th June at Concrete Hermit from 6pm.
