As the ‘art or vandalism’ debate continues, this December the Londonewcastle Project Space will host RareKind London’s 3 Decades exhibition, celebrating 30 years of London graffiti art.
Running from 5 – 12 December 2009, the artwork will be exhibited according to decade showcasing exclusive artwork, photographs and memorabilia from the pioneers of the art form in the 80’s, following a linear history through to the 90’s masters and on to the 00’s and the new blood artists.
3 Decades is the largest and most comprehensive show of its kind to ever be exhibited in London. It will include canvases and affordable prints by over 30 artists including Eine, Zomby, Prime, Roid, RT London, David Samuel as well as many more of London’s inimitable artists who have painted, sequestered in the shadows for more than thirty years, yet inadvertently changed the face of London’s urban art scene forever.
Since its emergence in the early 80’s, graffiti in the UK has developed into a compelling art form, cultivating the talents of artists from all walks of life and steadily changing the public’s perception of this cloak and dagger movement.
Sponsored by Londonewcastle who donated the project space, 3 Decades will be open daily from 5-12 December 2009 from 11.00am to 7.00pm at Londonewcastle Project Space, 28 Redchurch Street, E2 7DP.
