Ema Solo Show

Ema began spray-painting the walls of her hometown, Montpellier (Fr) in the early 90's. Instantly hooked by graffiti, it wasn’t long before her works adorned buildings and trains throughout the South of France, Paris and Barcelona before moving across Europe and North America.
As a resident of New York for the past 10 years, Ema's work can be seen throughout the city, both inside and outside the gallery; from exhibitions in Chelsea, to wheat-pastes in Brooklyn and large-scale murals across Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx.
For this exhibition, titled Breuckelen (the original name for Brooklyn), Ema presents a series of original works celebrating a decade of soul-searching, creative explorations and one-hell-of-a-time in the city so good, they named it twice.
Brooklyn, we go hard.
The exhibition opens on 9th September 7-10pm. The show will then run till the 9th of October open 12-6pm Tuesday to Sunday. Go read and see more of Ema here.

4 4 2- 4th Birthday and Team Recoat Launch

Wow, we've had a cracking time running Recoat thus far. We've showed work from 5 continents, held 42 exhibitions at Recoat, and 15 at other spaces, and the Fool's Gold Tour and Rudimentary Perfection show have really been the icing on the cake!
This summer we celebrate 4 years of Recoat by launching Team Recoat, a collective of 10 Scottish artists who we rate massively for their excellent and well-crafted work. We've commissioned each of them to design a limited edition screen print, these will be on show next Friday alongside original paintings and drawings.
Exciting times!
Show opens 7-10pm on the 12th August and then runs till the 4th September.
