1. Apr – 13. Apr 09
The Brick Lane Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition ” Art in Mind ” featuring a mix of Urban, Street, Graphic and Contemporary artists.
The exhibition will feature new paintings and stencil works by the sensational artist The Art Tart, presenting her larger than life stencil works through her alter-ego. The Art Tart took the Banksy Cans Festival by storm with her shocking stencil paintings and a performance which was definitely one to remember … Through her use of various costumes to create the ultimate tarty look with high heels, big red lips, leopard stockings, French knickers and open shirt, she in fact reveals a larger than life character – which, coupled with a few spray cans, takes street art to a whole new level. Combining the genres of performance and art, she crosses into controversial grounds by voluntarily exhibiting her naughty side… Bending over riding a spray can and farting roses reveals a playful side to her light-hearted and tongue in cheek approach to her practice.
She previously worked with Damien Hirst on his spin paintings and Butterfly pieces during which she would collect the left-over paint to make her own self-portraits. She also assisted the international street artist Nick Walker and posed naked at one point for David Bailey.
Art in Mind is a monthly group exhibition presenting emerging artists worldwide with the opportunity to showcase their work in an attractive and professional Gallery in London.
