Endangered Species at MYA Gallery

Wow, it has been years since I have updated this blog. I hope you all forgive me, I have been pretty busy putting on shows, working with art fairs and now directing a new gallery in East London.

Over the past few years, street art has really exploded and a zillion incredible projects have developed to support this growing art movement. I am very happy to still be involved on a day to day basis and with that said, I would like to speak a bit about my most recent exhibition at MYA Gallery.

Endangered Species is the second exhibition I have curated for MYA Gallery and aims to raise awareness about just some of the animals that are currently at threat of extinction. There are over 300 species of fish, 1/5 of sharks, more than 500 amphibian species and 1/8 of all bird are in danger of becoming extinct in the very near future.  I thought it would be a good idea to use my career as a curator to raise a bit of awareness and give back to the people that are really doing something to put a stop to this super scary reality. The exhibition is in support of World Land Trust, a UK organisation that helps to protect the habitats of endangered species around the world.

All the artists exhibited, selected one animals they wanted to work with from the endangered species list I offered to them. The result is a beautiful collection of 20 artworks from international artists that I truly respect and admire.

New and original artworks on show by exhibiting artists:
Gent 48, Matt Small, Pam Glew, Labrona, Luke Cheuh, JADE, Shark Toof, SatOne, Andrey Adno, Angry Woebots, Eismann, Txemy, Jason Redwood, 3ttman, Pantonio, Fintan Magee, Odisy, SozyOne and Morik1, Uriginal
