Last week saw the opening of our second exhibition at Nobrow Gallery, ‘Doom 3.0’. This time it was a double hit of illustrative euphoria as artists Jon Boam and Matthew the Horse took the mantle. After a busy week of preparation the gallery was finally transformed into a doodler’s paradise, with Jon and Matt’s kindred yet distinct styles gracing every surface of the premises, whether framed, clipped or painted directly onto the walls. Some of the characters even came to life, thanks to the ever impressive felt-craft of one Felt Mistress.
Our usual selection of books, zines and prints are coexisting nicely with the new arrivals housed on some brand spanking new shop fittings and a slew of new products are on the way soon to fill their maiden shelves. Come and have a look for yourselves and don’t forget to pick up one of the unique packs of mini prints by the two artists for the amazingly low price of just 20 pounds!
Originally produced as a four page comic short story for Finnish comic art studio KutiKuti, Brecht has allowed us to create these beautiful four colour screenprints from his original commission. The series is printed in an edition of just 35, at SRA3 size. Brecht is also the next artist to appear in the Nobrow gallery, with his exhibition premiering on the 23rd of September 2010, more details to follow on this soon.
So we are revving up for the next big exhibition at Nobrow Shop and Gallery and thought we’d give you all a decent heads up of what’s to come…
Artists Matthew the Horse and Jon Boam are galloping south this summer to show their collective brilliance at Nobrow Shop/Gallery!
A collection of the insane and absurd, humorous and horrific, the Dynamic Duo will be sure not to disappoint. With original paintings, screen prints, digital work and 3D pieces, the show will be an explosion of colour and craftsmanship to make your eyes bleed with joy! if such a thing is possible…
I will posting more deets as we come closer to the show, earmark your calendars and keep your eyes glued to the Facebook page for updates and pics.
The show will be up from July 22nd to 23rd of September @ Nobrow Shop and Gallery, 62 Great Eastern Street, EC2A 3QR, London. Private view is from 6:30pm to 9:30pm on the 22nd of July, the usual free booze and merry making applies. Hope to see you there!
After a period of relative quiet here on the blog, here’s our latest. We have just released two brand spanking new prints by the famed Mr Teagle. Busy Fighter and Annubis vs The Rain originally appeared as Jack’s business card designs just after leaving college, but they were such great images we had to turn them into prints. In the nick of time they were released before the launch of the D&D show at our Gallery/Shop on Great Eastern Street and we have only just had the time to photograph them for the website. Check them out here.
We are very pleased that we have finally found a way to bring the good ol’ Eyebird into physical form in this stunningly hand crafted set of limited edition sculptures by Italian artist Makkinoso. Created in an edition of just 10 hand painted resin cast figurines this is a collectors item for any die hard Nobrow fans. Each bird comes packed in traditional Kaiju toy fashion, in a polythene bag with a header card, the classiest way of presenting such a fine object, hehe.
