On the 28th June, we are delighted to open up our gallery from 6pm-8pm to welcome the infamous Ryan Callanan (RYCA) and his ‘F-word Showcase’. Are we excited? Absofuckinlutely.
Expect a beer or a glass of bubbly, our resident DJ, the opportunity to meet RYCA himself and to sneak a peak at his latest works featured publicly for the first time. Exclusive to the Brighton gallery, his new works keep in line with his iconic style that combines contemporary pop culture with aesthetically old-fashioned elements, such as traditional typography.
A master of his craft, he combines hand-etched glass and ornate frames with his street-art inspired messages, to result in a fresh yet classic piece of artwork. An homage to the lost art of pub signages, RYCA plays with traditional forms and gets away with reworking what we’ve seen before into something new and captivating. The stunning type takes the edge out of the profanity, so much so that your relatives might not even notice when they visit.
Put that to the test with our wall of words and spot the swear!
There will also be an opportunity to snatch some of his last prints before they are officially sold out, and the chance to purchase special editions of sold out artworks. Accomplished and vibrant, RYCA is a huge name in the contemporary art and street art scene at the moment, and we’re thrilled to have him take over the Brighton gallery.
Kicking off the weekend in style, get down to the gallery early to avoid missing out.
