Justin Giarla went out at night with Shooting Gallery artists Greg Gossel and Hugh Leeman to do some street art around the Tate Modern Museum during their recent trip to London. Good thing they're already back in the States, so you can safely watch our homies get up on London streets in more in-progress photos here.

Our homie Justin Giarla from The Shooting Gallery is now in London for The Red Dot Fair and just shot us some flicks of his recent adventures. Justin has been working with artist Greg Gossel (work below) to get his work hung for this massive art fair October 16-19, 2008. That didn't stop him from hitting up the Tate Modern Museum, as well as a few galleries, and getting a first hand peek at Conor Harrington's (Juxtapoz #93) dope street art (above.) See all of Justin's new London photos here.

Greg Gossel’s collection Make Believe opens at The Shooting Gallery on June 14th. This colorful series infuses deep political and cultural inferences with pop art and comic book illustrations to create a world wrapped in a make believe state of mind, where mass media has stolen the innocence with advertisements and war propaganda. Gossel’s Make Believe series is filled with diverse social and cultural issues. With a creative mixed media of various words, images, posters and newspaper the pieces become a matter of control. The collection is layered with a constant state of transformation illustrating a visual history of change, process, and expression. Pushing his art further, Greg Gossel has put this show in a different context and meaning where war propaganda, morality and American culture are questioned. With profound meaning of gender roles, stereotypes and emotion, this exhibit is thought provoking and attention grabbing. Using pop-culture iconography, graffiti and street art techniques his work has been called “a mix between that of Shepard Fairy and Roy Lichtenstein.” Come play Make Believe with Gossel on June 14th at San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery.
