We’re delighted to announce that an explosive new exclusive from Charlotte Rose has just been lobbed into Enter Gallery.
In Molotov, Rose continues her clever exploration of how classic brands (in her own words), ‘do their best not to admit they’re killing us softly’. The piece employs traditional Martini branding to highlight the highly volatile and addictive effect of alcohol.

Given Rose only picked up a paintbrush for the first time during the pandemic the young artist has made quite the impression on the art world, hosting two smash hit sell-out solo shows in consecutive years.
Her first solo show, I Quit Last Week, was Rose’s first foray into creating beautiful artworks that lambasted Mad Men-style advertisements from the 1950s, which sold us the lie that deadly products made us more desirable.
