One of the things you must love about London is the opportunity to admire amazing, eye-catching street art almost everywhere you walk. British street artist Phlegm, who is most famous for his mural outside the Southbank Centre, is bringing his talent indoors. Phlem is currently preparing to launch a solo exhibition at the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch.
The content has remained a secret except for the few pictures below and above. Phlegm has named his exhibitions “The Bestiary” and according to the gallery’s website, a bestiary was an illustrated compendium of animals, half real and half imagined, setting out the natural history of each beast within and its moral significance. What promises to be a large-scale installation is described as a taxonomic categorisation of Phlegm’s creatures in one place for the first time. See you there?
Phlegm is a Sheffield-based artist who started by self-publishing his illustrations and has become increasingly popular because of his outdoor, black-and-white, fantasy murals spread across many countries like Norway, Belgium and of course the UK. For more information about Phlegm, visit his blog.
Exhibition opens on 1st February with a drinks reception and will run until 4th March. Entrance is free.
