Pop-up Art Store In Soho? It Must Be Christmas!
Graphic art lovers, ahoy! There's a new pop-up store in town and it's called KIN. The shop is situated just off London's Carnaby Street in Kingly Court and is set up like a gallery, full of affordable graphic art, sculpture, clothing, homewares and assorted ephemera, created by a host of illustrators, designers and printmakers such as Swifty, Rose Stallard of Print Club, Si Scott, Steven Wilson, RYCA, PhlAsh (Phil Ashcroft) and many more...
The gallery/shop space is the fruition of a collaboration between London design agency Start Creative, art collective Scrawl, design consultancy JudgeGill and illustration agency Breed, and as well as a place to find some great gift ideas in the run up to Christmas, KIN will also be hosting a number of events that will include live art activity, light and sound installations, book launches (Scrawl head honcho, Ric Blackshaw and writer Liz Farrelly launch their new book, Street Art: In The Artists' Own Words next Thursday) and even charitable auctions.
Exhibiting artists include David Walker, Hampus Ericstam, Mr Jago, Nick Purser, Swifty, Phlash (Phil Ashcroft), Rose Stallard, Steven Wilson, RYCA, Sam Green, She One, Steff Plaetz, Valerio, Will Ainley, Will Barras, Danny Sangra, Hutch, Myne, Revenge is Sweet, Si Scott, Paula Castro, Rabbitman and Asa Lucander.
Here are some pieces of work that caught our eye at the launch party last night:
KIN is open from today through December and is being run by Ric Blackshaw of Scrawl.

Just as good, just as affordable....
Are you honestly trying to compare the taking of obvious, over used, iconography such as the rolling stones lips, bruce lee or scarface (mass produced and with no regard to copyright) to original artworks produced in limited runs by artists?
