SUMMER BREEZE an exhibition by Malarky + Billy
11 JUNE-3 JULY | OPENING PARTY FRIDAY 10 JUNE 7.00-10.00
Producing upwards of six murals in a single evening may seem like the work of ten robots, but Malarky and Billy simply have it down to an animalistic instinct. Being inspired by skateboarding and trained by foxes has certainly had its benefits; the adroit duo has been painting towns in a medley of ‘look-at-me!’ colours across the UK and beyond non-stop since the freezing snow day when they first met. As the warm weather approaches, the two artists have delivered hoards of redecorated work trucks and shop shutters with lightening-fast ferocity, the culmination of which heralds their first London show, SUMMER BREEZE. The exhibition blows in on 11 June with a series of original paintings and prints to resonate the new season. Raised in South London, Malarky’s style is influenced by a combination of the multi-cultural surroundings of Brixton, and the laid-back vibes of sunny Barcelona where he spends half his time. Malarky’s trademark foxes pay homage to his home turf where the animals roam freely around the city streets at night, echoing that of his own evening escapades with the likes of Billy, Mr Penfold, Rowdy, and Mighty Mo. Childhood adventures in Africa fused with a background in graphic design influence Billy's tribal-esque shapes and bright colours. Billy incorporates funky typefaces and wild colour combinations to create a style that is abstract, bold and fun. Taking this on trips to colour up the streets, Billy is enjoying the positive vibes and community impact of drawing big and painting bigger in Brixton and beyond. SUMMER BREEZE presents both individual and collaborative works by the artists, and runs until Sunday 3 July.
Loving all the shutters, trucks and walls these two have been painting around East London the last few months. Looking forward to seeing what they do indoors in the High Rollers space. See ye there tomorrow.

" I eat, sleep and shit this music. I'm passioniate to the point that i don't give a fuck. I could sit here and make bouncy bollocks all day long but i don't want to bounce around a bouncy castle like a knob-head. I don't make music for kids. I make it for adults." - Goldie
