Kurt and the Gang
Back in August, arts label Belly Kids unveiled the wonderful Kurt Cobain sticker book. Sucked in by gorgeous illustrations and a smattering of nostalgia for our angsty youth, the book was a teen spirit-scented hit.
This week, Belly Kids are to open an exhibition of the works featured this week at east London’s KK Outlet.
As well as showing illustrations from the book, the exhibition will also feature some specially created new works.
For the purposes of the show, Kurt’s ‘gang’ is an oddball assortment of friends, peers and influences on the man himself, including the likes of Daniel Johnston, Pixies, Lead Belly and of course, Cobain’s notorious widow, Courtney Love.
Alongside the Kurt-based creations, the KK Outlet’s side room will also be showing a number of previous Belly Kids work, such as the brilliant Bill Murrays . We’re also promised a host of other delights such as ‘Pizza, Monsters, Milkshakes, The Egyptians and more.’
Artists involved include Murray Somerville, Patrick Schmidt, Paul Windle, Sean Morris, Thomas Key, Sophie Alda and Mike Kilkelly.
Kurt and the Gang exhibition runs from 10 -31 January at KK Outlet,42 Hoxton Square, London N1
