The Moniker Art Fair is launching Gossip Well Told – a London-based exhibition featuring the work of street artists from around the world.
As its loquacious title suggests, this is work spread by and popularised by word of mouth – although sometimes supported by conventional art establishments.
With an international focus, the show will look to bring established artists to the exhibition including Ben Eine from the UK – known for his typographic style, which can be seen on London’s Middlesex Street, E1.
It’s clear that although there are some big names involved this is not just another graffiti exhibition – there’s plenty of other work here which has been shoe-horned into what can broadly considered street art.
Look out for work by California-based surrealist Luke Chueh and New York-based Cheryl Dunn – a photographer, film-maker and curator, specialising in documentary-style images.
Moniker Projects says a series of commissions is also being prepared for the exhibition, which will include off-site projects.
Gossip Well Told will run from 22-26 July at Blackall Studios, 73 Leonard Street, Shoreditch, EC2A and is a precursor to the Moniker International Art Fair, which will be held in October.
