Exhibition

Dream Bigger Better Weirder

Well Hung are delighted to announce a group exhibition with three of London’s most exciting and prolific street artists; Ben Rider, Donk and Skeleton Cardboard.

These artists are no strangers to the street art scene and have been leaving their provocative imagery around London for many years. Their friendship and desire to create ground breaking street art has lead to this powerful collaboration. The specially curated show combines elements of pop art, graffiti and photography, which is dynamic, energetic and pushes boundaries challenging us to ‘Dream Bigger, Better, Weirder’.

Armed with wheat paste, spray cans and paint brushes, Ben Rider, Donk and Skeleton Cardboard will be adorning our gallery walls with their colourful trademark imagery, stencils and typography to create a visually striking installation. The artist’s original artwork will sit alongside the installation uniting all the collection together.Exclusive to the exhibition we will be launching a joint, special edition screen print. This will be a small edition, all uniquely hand finished.

Join us on Thursday 19th September for the private view from 6pm until 9pm. RSVP to info@wellhung.co.uk. We will be giving away a goodie bag of art and stickers for the first 20 people through the doors so get here earlier to avoid disappointment. The exhibition runs until 19th October.

Bio

Eric Haacht, is a self taught portrait painter based in a remote part of the UK. The eighties born artist has been painting for ten years, The first portrait was painted in 2011 and since then has only painted portraits with the goal to explore a concern with the 'immediacy and the artificialness of life (and death)’ and a yearning to demonstrate that his hunch that ‘time and form are a mere ruse’. The distorted and obscured faces raise questions about our own identity and whether we outwardly project personas which do not reflect our true selves, especially so in an era where social media is so pervasive. But Haacht himself is more concerned with much broader existential questions about whether time and existence themselves are just illusions. Despite the high level of abstraction, the British painter’s works are still immediately identifiable as portraits as faces are made up of a tangled confusion of paint which has been pulled across the surface of the canvas.
