Here’s the info: This summer, London celebrates the sport of art with the arrival of the United States’ most celebrated and prolific graffiti and street artists for “Letters From America.” Presented by Culver City-based Corey Helford Gallery, the project launches on June 30 with outdoor installations at the London Pleasure Gardens followed by a gallery exhibition at Shoreditch’s Black Rat Gallery on July 4.
The gateway to the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, the London Pleasure Gardens is a multi-platform, cultural destination that will host site-specific outdoor installations by legendary Los Angeles graffiti writer RISK, renowned street artist and master pop surrealist painter Ron English and guerrilla art collective TrustoCorp. They will be joined by art luminaries from around the world to salute the launch of the Pleasure Gardens.
“Letters From America” continues its UK invasion with an all-American Independence Day celebration on Wednesday, July 4 at Black Rat Gallery. The exhibition transforms the London tunnel into a bunker of America’s most wanted artists, showcasing new works from RISK, Ron English, SABER, and TrustoCorp. Gallerists Jan and Bruce Helford add, “Corey Helford Gallery is proud to be bringing U.S. artists to a UK project of this “Olympian” scale and finishing with a celebration of four of the top U.S. street and graffiti artists – RISK, Ron English, Saber and TrustoCorp – in a gallery that’s been home to some of the finest street artists in the world, Black Rat Gallery.”

There's so many places releasing prints left, right and centre atm they probably got bored with all the hassle. Seems like they're concentrating on proppa shows with original artwork now... which is no bad thing.
Nice pics AP and it's always great catching up with mate, it was a very cool gesture by Ron to do all the sketches. When I went to him to ask to sign the show card he just took his pencil out and said I draw you something. And he had time to chat and pose for photos to whoever asked him, great show and the free hotdogs went down very well;) Top marks to BRP
