Sickboy "Make It Last Forever" @ The Outsiders, LondonJuxtapoz // Friday, 15 Aug 2014
The bold, comprehensive showcase features a unique body of surreal, cosmic canvases alongside a technicolour installation inspired from personal assemblages and years of sacred memorabilia. Make It Last Forever celebrates a poignant embodiment of the artist's inspirations and creative endeavours to date, and provides a unique multimedia diary that seeks to outlive its creator. Sickboy's playful visual language will reappear in several guises throughout the show, including his iconic temple shrines, ever-popular superman sculpture and distinctive sickboy coffin. Utilising a variety of mediums across both floors of the gallery the new body of work provides an unconventional narrative in the form of abstract large-scale canvases, sculpture and interactive installation.
Successfully transposing his controversial and subversive street exploits into the gallery environment, Sickboy seeks to highlight our transcient and fragile existence by asking how we can Make It Last Forever. The show is up through August 30, 2014 at The Outsiders, London.
