Guerilla artist, KARMA KHAZI will bring his much anticipated new exhibition, Sh!t Show – a celebration of London’s toilet graffiti – to SHOREDITCH between January 25-28, offering free entry to the public.
The artist will take over the space at 133 Bethnal Green Road – in the graffiti hotspot of Shoreditch – for four days (including a VIP private view on January 25) to showcase his ambitious collection of nearly 100 pieces inspired by the messages he found during a 250-pub crawl.
The centrepiece of the show will be a single, black door with 63 pieces of graffiti, all pulled from different toilet cubicles each with its own unique view of the world. Other pieces in the show include 63 individual canvases reflecting the graffiti’s messages, fibreglass pub signs and other sculptures and art to bring the collection close to 100 pieces.
The show will extend beyond physical art – music created at Courtyard Studios (Radiohead, Gaz Coombes, The Stranglers) and mixed at the legendary Abbey Road will soundtrack the exhibition, and a short film by double-BAFTA winning filmmaker Lee Phillips sheds light on the work and its origins.
The artist will welcome the public for free from January 26-28, even inviting them to create their own contributions to the show, with special areas set aside for guests to add their own, anonymous messages, drawings and slogans, which will then form part of the collection.
