Next month, our friend Martin Whatson will be opening his new solo exhibition in London, UK at the RexRomae Gallery on November 6th.

Following his recent international murals and collaborations across Europe and America, Whatson prepares for his solo show in London, where he will translate his signature composite style of stencils and graffiti writing into fine art works. Hide and Seek explores the evolution of the walls and the continuos metamorphosis of the city’s ecosystem. The show intends to present on canvas how people make their mark on society and the antagonistic relationship between right and wrong.

“I feel like my background is more from the fine art world, but I found interest in doing art myself through graffiti so I like to incorporate both. It’s like a fusion of two interests – the fine art and the street art – but I find that the aesthetics of graffiti is my favourite thing, so that’s why I try to incorporate it”, says Whatson about his work. This vanguardist’s interest for decay has helped him develop his notable aesthetic, motives and composition, creating either unity or conflict between materials, backgrounds and human intervention.

A limited edition, hand-painted screenprint by Martin Whatson will be available at the opening.
The upcoming "Hide And Seek" exhibition is curated by Rom Levy.

If you are in the area, the show will be opening on November 6th at 6PM at 9 Kingsland Road, London E2 8AA. If you can't make it, the preview list can be requested at salesenquiry@rexromae.com
