Specter London Solo Show

We are not in London this evening and are gutted we will be missing Specter’s UK debut Solo show at The Pure Evil gallery which will see him bringing a unique portrayal of the socially marginalised, all the way from the streets of Brooklyn, New York.

Specter creates installations and street artwork displayed in abandoned buildings and forgotten spaces to draw attention to the urban situation which is the inspiration for his creative concepts.
He evolves the subject matter by interlacing influences from the environment he chooses to adorn, incorporating characteristics from the surrounding neighbourhoods, architecture, local business and social economic classes; transforming the unwitting publics’ understanding of the space.

Through graffiti influence, he became obsessed with art in public spaces, where he sees potential inspiration and appropriate location to express his creativity. His aim is to deconstruct preconceived perceptions and draw attention to the neglected and less desirable issues, the non-sensational stories of the undervalued detritus of our culture we seldom hear about.

The exhibition opens this evening, Thursday 5 August with a private View from 6—9pm
