London’s Got a Sweet Toof – Free Art Exhibition
Sweet Toof – SWEET REVENGE | The Colour Works – 117 Wallis Road – Hackney – E9 5LN | 11th-19th August | FREE
An anonymous toothy vagabond is taking over London. His name is Sweet Toof, and he’s got a new solo show ‘Sweet Revenge’
Sweet Toof has risen up the ranks as a graffiti artist throughout the 80s and 90s, where his letterforms and street styles have evolved alongside a rigorous academic practice as a realist painter and sculptor. Heavily influenced by the Vanitas paintings of sixteenth century Europe, Mexican Day of the Dead, Subway Art, and the underground comics of Vaughn Bodé, his characteristic gummy chompers are a true fusion of street and studio.
Now, the anonymous face that launched a thousand teeth unleashes the beast and charges forward once again — with a fleet of new works and an army of horsemen braced to paint the East End by storm. It’s a call to arms in the battle for free expression: join forces, or else just grin and bear it.Remove featured image
