“Shinganist” is an intriguing look into the work of some of Japan’s up-and-coming young artists. Straddling the fine line of street art, skate and tattoo culture, while simultaneously drawing inspiration from centuries of traditional Japanese imagery, True to the meaning behind “Shingan” - those who create based on visions spurred by the mind’s eye and those who are not affected by the opinions and expectations placed on them by the outside world - USUGROW, MOZYSKEY, TOSHIKAZU NOZAKA, BENE and JUN KANEKO are driven by the pure passion to create.
To accompany this show will be the release of a limited edition screen print by Usugrow as well as signed copies of the book ‘Shinganist’

Anthony Burrill: In a New Place
24 July – 5 September
For In a New Place, prolific designer Anthony Burrill has takes a marked step away from the 2D type-based print work for which he is best known. The exhibition presents Anthony’s exploration of industrial processes and materials with large scale laser–cut perspex pieces as well as digital prints. The subject of the exhibition focusses upon archetypal forms of nature, from rainbows to thunderstorms, all within Burrill’s uncomplicated and distinctive geometric style. By applying these man-made processes to the natural theme, Burrill shows us his vision of a modern natural world, an industrial interpretation of nature.
