London’s StolenSpace gallery has given us a sneak peek at some of the works that will appear in its group show, Love & Hate, which opens tomorrow. Plus, contributing artists Kai & Sunny have offered us one of their new screenprints to give away…
Artists including D*Face, EINE, Kai & Sunny, Kelly Allen, Pete Fowler, Ronzo, Sylvia Ji, and Will Barras were all asked by the gallery to create two pieces of work, one representing “love” and another for “hate.
“The idea is that the show both celebrates and mourns Valentines Day,” says Beth StolenSpace. “We told the artists that the brief could be as literally or as loosely interpreted as they liked. The result is both a visual and conceptual battle of opposites.”
Here are some of the works created for the show:
by Kelly Allen
by Kai & Sunny
Created specially for the Love & Hate Show, Kai & Sunny‘s Broken Flower, Love Me Love Me Not limited edition screenprint (above, and a detail shown below) is printed in White Glitter and Black on 100% Cotton Somerset Satin White 300gsm paper (76 x 57cm) in an edition of 60.
The artists have very kindly given us one of the prints to give away to a lucky reader.
