ARTIST BIO (Prefab 77)
Prefab77 is an artist who has origins in the north of England, California and New York.
Creating, hard edged and stripped down artwork that is often political, sometimes anti-establishment, but always beautiful he weaves small pieces of modern popular culture, pure rock and rebellion reflecting on the passing of our familiar institutions, shadowy establishment on the take and take small bites out of the underbelly of our modern culture that gets more bizarre with each passing day.
It is a dark word of money, fashion, music and politics woven into a luxurious mixture of acrylic, spraypaint, wheatpaste and varnish. He is the Gentle Young Giant.
ARTIST BIO (Remi/Rough)
South London born and bred, Remi has been breaking boundaries with the aid of a spray can and a paintbrush for almost 3 decades. Transcending the traditional and somewhat idealized vision of a graffiti writer as he is passionate and unforgiving in his creative progression. He moved from the streets to the galleries with his debut art show in 1989 and has since gone on to exhibit in London, Paris, Perth, Tokyo, Santander, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Berlin, Ibiza and more cities dotted around the globe. However, he still keeps his finger in the streets, taking part in New York’s Underbelly Project in 2010 and painting numerous murals around the world.
As Arrested Motion wrote: “Remi is that rare breed of artist whose work you can equally enjoy in an outdoor setting and also in a gallery/home without it feeling awkward and out of context."
