Last night was the opening of a new exhibition featuring Kiwi artist Askew One and Australian Fintan Magee titled Oceanic.
They have taken over an old warehouse in Shoreditch and done a fantastic job of transforming it, in just a few days, into a space to showcase their artwork. Both artists have a distinct style and anyone familiar with Askew’s or Fintan’s previous work will be pleased to know original works are available to buy — but they are running out fast so get in quick.
Askew One is well known in NZ for painting the silos at Silo Park in Auckland, as well as for many other awesome pieces around the country and abroad; he has just come from Glasgow after holding an exhibition there.
The opening was a great success, and they had a large crowd of people admiring their artworks. The murals they have painted are mind-blowingly good and done in just a couple of days. I’m assuming they will be around for good, so even after the exhibit is finished hopefully there will still be a touch of Kiwi/Aussie left in Shoredtich for people to admire.
The exhibition is only running from the 24-30th July in Shoreditch, so if you are interested you had better get in quick. Details here.
