In addition to that fantastic graffiti horror show by Nychos, there will be another interesting urban art exhibition tomorrow in London: British stencil artist SPQR will open his “Monochromatic Shades” stencil art show at Signal Gallery, exploring the art of protest, brainwashed media and the evils of society.
SPQR is an artist from the West of England whose work has the ability to take the challenge of Banksy head on and produce a body of mostly stencil based artwork which has it’s own brand of ‘humour through protest’. Unlike Banksy, he has not been interested in developing hype and PR frenzy. In fact, he has actively avoided ‘selling out’ to the more commercial and cynical end of the Street Art movement.

I’m curious to see the show, although I can make it to the opening. Maybe someone of you could write a small exhibition-report below?
Location: Signal Gallery, 96a Curtain Road, London
Opening: 16th September 2010, 6-9pm
