Exhibition Review | Yesterday, the “Blind By Stardom” exhibition by English born urban artist Word To Mother (By the way a really nice guy!) opened its doors at the Stolen Space Gallery in London. It’s the fourth exhibition by Word To Mother in these rooms and of course I visited the show, which features paintings in mixed media on wood, canvas, found objects and installation pieces and was highly impressed by his fantastic technique and the more or less hidden joke in his artworks [*]!
Word To Mother’s new body of work invites the viewer to look past the exterior or what is immediately apparent and question what is behind. Referencing popular childhood characters he asks the viewer to question the agenda of media that is subjected to us, involuntarily sculpting our values and opinions. (press release)
This exhibition is the next which gets in line with all the other great art shows (e.g. Nychos at Pure Evil, Bäst at Lazarides and C215 at Signal Gallery) I’ve seen so far in London. Here are some impressions I recorded…You can find more photos of the Word To Mother exhibition on Flickr!
[*] I stood at least thirty minutes in front of that amazing Spongebob-costume-wearing guy with his heart-balloon, smiled and thought about the deeper meaning of it! Any idea?
