A Night With The London Police 11th May, 2012 Big Wall, Big Canvas and Print Release Exclusively at Unit44 Hoults Yard, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE6 2HL.
In the early weeks of 2012 three Newcastle boys headed out to Amsterdam in search of a very special collective hailing from the UK. After a brief meet in their vast studio we concluded the deal, and cemented the agreement in stone over easy beer & Tequila. Something that has long been on our agenda is now coming to fruition. We are proud to announce, as a gallery, & huge fans The London Police.
On the top of the schedule is a huge wall – getting quite a reputation for these of late. This will be followed by an ‘Evening With The London Police’ consisting of a very special original workings and print release here at Unit44. On the menu we’re thinking Margaritas, Brooklyn Lager, and Patron.
The London Police started in 1998 when big English geezers headed to Amsterdam to rejuvenate the visually disappointing streets of the drug capital of the world.
The motive was to combine traveling and making art to create an amazing way of life not seen since the days of King Solomon. From 2002 onward TLP started sending missionaries into all corners of the globe. Known for their iconic ‘LADS’ characters and precision marking TLP have recently celebrated 10 strong years in the art world and their work has graced streets and galleries in 35 countries during this time. London policemen have come and gone but founding members are still known to walk the streets of every city in the world spreading love with pens and stickers.
The current duo have managed to form a partnership more cohesive than Han Solo and Chewbacca in Star Wars and are continuing to produce slick artwork that is tighter than a butlers cuff. Never be scared, don't be a hero and let the good times roll.
We can confirm the arrival of two new print releases courtesy of The London Police for the May opening. Both 'Newcastle' in nature and both in extremely limited numbers. We have already had an abundance of requests for these and we have to give the attendees on the night first allocation. It will be first come first served on both runs available from 6.30pm on the 11th May here at Unit44.
We also have two original canvases to display. Again these have already had enquiries and we will be leaking photos shortly.
More information to the exact details coming shortly.
All London Police works go on sale tomorrow evening from 6.30pm in gallery. We have two print releases with two amazing original workings. These are going to shift incredibly quickly and think it's only fair to give the attendees a head start.
One edition of 100 at £44.00 (25cm x 25cm) One edition of 60 at £144.00 (70cm x 46cm)
Both are one colour hand pulled screen prints on 300gsm Somerset archival paper. Signed and numbered by the artist.
Due to last night being possibly our busiest opening we've had a few issues getting whats left of the print online. They will be available at 3pm today. Apologies for anyone trying to buy them last night.
