‘New Ways of Seeing’, is the eagerly awaited first solo exhibition from Static. The show will be on display in our London gallery space located on 42 New Compton St and will feature an entirely new body of work from the artists.
The exhibition promises to add a little something extra with Static becoming artists in residence for a week whilst they completely customise and transform every square inch of the two-floor gallery space, creating not only the perfect backdrop in which to show the work, but also offering a completely unique experience that will transport the viewer into the world in which the work is set.

Vilchez’s UK solo debut opens at the Pure Evil Gallery on May 27th to exhibit a collection of his freshest work, a stunning group of Maikos. These apprentice geishas take Vilchez’s eye for complexity and strong graphic image to a new level.
Hailing from the small town of Oliveira in the South of Spain, Vilchez breaks down traditional print techniques and distills centuries old illustration processes . Preferring the detail of dry crystal etching and a mix of woodcut and linocut relief, Vilchez extracts vibrancy, intricacy and the cult of cool from his medium, creating complex, vastly impressive works that twist conventional iconography with influences from street art.
Vilchez, drawing upon conventions of tradition and culture , has created a new body of work that appropriates works of Japanese heritage, elevating his individual technique to capture layers of detail and dynamic interpretation of femininity and sexuality.
