Missum, one half of artist duo Miss Bugs, is to put on her first solo show, moving away from the graphic collage style which has defined the work of the collective, to instead explore watercolour, collograph and drypoint etching.
Miss Bugs, a prolific street art outfit since 2007, is the work of one anonymous man and one anonymous woman. This much we know.
Missum’s own work now takes a darker direction, exploring ‘isolation and loss’ brought out in a dark palette of colours, we are told by organisers, who suggest the solo work has a feminine and softer tone then work by Miss Bugs.
This would be the yin and yang of Miss Bugs work, and although they go together like street artists and anonymity, Missum now seems to be striking out in a very different direction.
Place – Works on Paper by Missum, runs from 21 October -21 November at the Ink D Gallery, 96 North Road, Brighton
