Make it last forever opened on a super humid summer evening on Thursday 24th July and marked Sickboy's first London gallery appearance at the Outsiders space. Having forgotten to rsvp for the opening party we almost didn't make it into the space as the gallery was packed to capacity with the crowds eventually spilling out onto the streets outside.
The Make it last forever show featured an all new body of work, giving us a glimpse into the colourful and twisted world of Sickboy! Large scale canvas works, paintings on aluminum, drawings plus an elaborate large installation designed specifically for the lower gallery space. Also on show was a display case featuring some of the artists treasures from his personal collection along with some laser cut and etched wooden and perspex editioned objects, one of which was included in the Sickboy coffin we unearthed a week prior to the exhibition opening, when we took part in Sickboy's London Tresure Hunt (covered here).
As is often common at preview evenings it was difficult to take in all the work with so many people in the space from buyers, fans, family, friends and a whole bunch of artists in attendance showing support and sharing a beer. Another visit was a must for us and returning to the show allowed us the space to absorb some of the crazy details and characters in Sickboy's canvas work. Below are a selection of the images we captured on our return to the Outsiders.
#MakeItLastForever will run at the space until Saturday 30th of August 2014.
