Summer time makes us think only about sunny beaches and fruity cocktails, but at Scream, we stay focused!
Especially for those who are enjoying their summer in the city, we have opened a fresh and vibrant Summer Exhibition featuring two new exciting artists - Cassandra Yap and Joseph Vass. Both artists have joined the Scream family very recently and we're excited to introduce them to you.
We're also happy to showcase two unique pieces of David Wightman - Coraline IV and Celestine. Come and see them live in the gallery! Here you can find a little preview of the artworks.
Come and visit us at the gallery and have a look at our beautiful summer editions.
Originally from Singapore, Cassandra Yap is an artist and art director based in London.
Her work often explores the juxtaposition between dark and beautiful subjects to create the surreal. Fuelled by her love of pin ups, the female form and an unhealthy obsession with vintage erotica, her photomontage halftone style images are dark, bold and humorous with a kinky edge.
Joseph Vass is a silkscreen artist living and working in London. His work fuses typographic elements together with idealistic imagery, inviting the viewer to take a smooth ride through a utopian haze, set in various scenes . A brush and ink fanatic, Joseph spends hours meticulously sketching on his light box before creating larger than life, colourful pieces that are then silkscreened or used commercially in print, web or advertising.
Collagism and Shuby return to London’s West End on Thursday 11th June 2015 for a joint exhibition of their latest works at Scream on Eastcastle Street.
Collagism (aka Holly-Anne Buck) and Shuby met whilst exhibiting in a group show in London's East End. Both artists were captured by each others work and the parallel that they both use bananas as a motif running through their work. They instantly hit it off, and after their meeting decided that on Holly-Anne’s return to homeland Australia they would embark on a long distance collage collaboration.
This developed into a series of colourful, multimedia pop-art works, shared across the seas between two artists, with no specific boundaries on materials or subject. Each artist would work on a piece themselves up until a point and then post the artwork across the world to the other who would then continue working on the same piece. They became excited by the surprise results of each other’s influence on the collaborative works and a relationship of two strong female artists was born.
Join us for David Shillinglaw's solo exhibition You Are Here, showcasing brand new paintings and installations. You Are Here is a new body of work by a young energetic artist – ranging from large painted canvas, works on paper, wooden assemblages and installation. This body of work pulls together the last 10 years of David Shillinglaw’s practice – combining elements from his work on the street and in the gallery – but also remixing his own personal history – which propels his work into a fresh visual territory. ie David is stepping up his game.
