Malika Favre at Kemistry
Illustrator Malika Favre's first solo exhibition in London, Hide and Seek, opened today at Kemistry Gallery. The show features a series of new works inspired, she tells us, by architectural patterns that no one really notices...
Black and white stripes abound, as do mysterious women that lurk within the patterns, inviting the viewer to reinterpret the stripes as representative of physical spaces. The exhibition will showcase eight new screenprints, signed editions of which will be available to buy at the gallery.
Without giving too much away (we don't want to spoil the impact of the work for those attending the private view tonight), here are some shots of the show and also a short film showing a large vinyl wall piece being installed in the gallery:

Hide and Seek runs until September 29 at Kemistry Gallery, 43 Charlotte Road, London EC2A 3PD.
