The Stik show was held at the Subway Gallery, a gallery the size of a living room located underground in the subway by Edgeware Rd Station. Stik was given the gallery for the next three weeks and his latest print by Squarity was released. He hasn't released one in some time so it was nice to see an edition of 50 so plenty can get one. The coloured variants were either 1/1 (red, pink, gray) or numbered out of 2 or 3.
Stik was also there painting during the show which is a nice touch. Small crowd, chips and beer brought by Stik, a nice warm show.
Slinkachu's show was quite a contrast. Nestled in South Ken back streets the show was slick from the outside with broad shouldered bouncers making sure your name was on the list. This was my first time at a Slinkachu show and I was blown away.
Slinkachu works by taking minature figures and creating a scene on the street. The figures are so small that they'd be almost impossible to see passing by, so he takes a stunning photo of each one, which is what was displayed here.
Hopefully the pictures do it some justice because it was a fantastic show.
