Want to have a quick drink after work? Don’t go to your usual, change up your routine. Check out one of the UK’s top emerging artists Ashes57.

The accomplished artist has played a pivotal role in documenting the ever-changing facets of the underground electronic music scene and its evolution in both the UK and overseas. Her inimitable photographs, playful illustrations and clean-cut designs have injected a fresh aesthetic to the scene; and in a short space of time she has cemented her position as an inspiring visual artist in large-scale murals and successful exhibitions along with her work as Art Director of the widely acclaimed LAVA Collective. On display will be a 24 foot mural and a new screen print entitled ‘Brick Lane Zoo’. There will also be several black and white A1 posters for sale and free stickers for the first 100 through the door.

The exhibition features an after party with performances from Teklife (Planet Mu), Patrice & Friends (Sulk Records), Kutz (Wheel & Deal), J-Cush (Lit City) and Lucid Residents.

Opening Night: D.I.Z.N.I @ Graffik Gallery / Until Sunday June 3rd 2012

TIME AND PLACE:

18:00 – 23:00

@ Graffik Gallery
284 Portobello Road,
London,

Entry: £FREE

What’s your favourite Disney movie? Well be it your a fan of The Little Mermaid, Lion King or Beauty and the Beast this exhibition will have a different take on your favourite cherished animated movies.

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Portobello there was a contemporary arts venue named “Graffik Gallery”. D.I.Z.N.I. will be trespassing from 17 May – 3 June.

When we think of children’s stories, two entirely different kinds of tale come to mind. Disney publishes beautiful tales with kind fairies who grant wishes and sprinkle fairy dust. These stories stem from the Victorian period, an era when the Grimm brothers’ tales were sanitised.

Tales by the Grimm brothers or Hans Christian Andersen where the storyline is dark, gruesome, a little bloodthirsty, and the fairies are naughty little bastards who might attempt to steal your children are more riveting. Graffik Gallery finds the latter so compelling that it has organised the DIZNI exhibition.

By showcasing coquettish and controversial painted cartoon characters popular images will be be stripped from the constraints of reality and their cultural significance, known for generations.

Artists involved:
Alec Monopoly, Ron English, Tee Wat, Speedy Graphito, Andy Seize, Jason Busk, Dotmaster, Dom Pattinson, Milo, Nuno Raminhos, Menghu Chen, Eyesaw, Gregory Siff, DDS, Inkfetish, Leeks, Carleen de Sozer, Dom Pattinson, Valery Pannetier, Matt Keeling, Redlock Graham Smith and Saskia Hahn.

RSVP for the after party being held at The Supper Club: art@graffikgallery.co.uk.

Its almost the weekend why wait till then.
