Now Herod wasn’t the nicest person who’s ever lived but that doesn’t mean the people involved in this little pop up shop are the same, in fact quite the opposite. From Herrod himself:

We’re not only stocking fine contemptorary art, porcelain with a twist, but there’s also an exclusive selection of retro garments nestled in one corner. We think it’s possibly a one-stop-chrimbo-present-buyin-shop… but then we are biased (and delusional).

If your in the area i would definitely suggest popping in. I was down there the other day setting up and saw some absolutely fantastic pieces from the likes of Rowan Newton, Carl Cashaman, Remi Rough, SPQR and Agent Provocateur to name a few. Oh and us as well!!!

Last night… (Nychos & SPQR)

There was something of an id-iom outing to the East End last night to quaff some free booze and check out some of the competition. After a quick preparatory pint at the Griffin we headed to Nychos new show at Pure Evil Gallery. I wouldn’t say that Nychos is particularly my style but i thought some of the work was good – I particularly liked a couple of the screenprints and also the wall he did downstairs (which unfortunately we failed to grab a photo of !)

After Nychos we headed just over and down the road to see SPQR’s new show at the Signal Gallery. Plenty of new work going down and there were a couple of firm favourites – I particularly liked the kids with the baseball bats (below) and also the framed collages which are definitely something a little different. Overall the show was pretty busy and it is well worth a look. The policeman getting the ice cream from the van was very Banksy-esque but that’s no bad thing. It’s definitely nice to get out every once in a while to have a drink and socialise. I’m sure i should do it more often…
