"DRAW is a must-see exhibition featuring original drawings by 300 artists in the tattoo, literature, design, illustration, animation, skateboard, music, urban and contemporary art worlds. The show is a tribute to the often-underrated but fundamental building-block of visual and graphic art: the drawing.
Artists whose works are in the show include: Moby, Barry McGee, HR Giger, Clive Barker, EINE, Gibby Haynes, Ron English, D* Face, Kat Von D, Tim Biskup, Ben Cho, Mark Gonzales, SickBoy, Derek Hess, Rich Jacobs, KAWS, Neck Face, Rick Griffin, Hank Williams III, Kerry King, WK Interact, Aurel Schmidt, Louis Molloy and Phil Kyle of London Ink, Doze Green, Chris Johanson and Dalek. 25 artists from the UK are debuting works. Their pieces will continue as part of the Draw exhibit as it continues from London, on a six-country world tour that includes showings in Tokyo, Berlin, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
DRAW is the largest contemporary drawing exhibition to emerge out of New York City. The exhibit debuted in October of 2006 at Fuse Gallery to phenomenal response from audience and press alike. It had an equally impressive showing during the SXSW 2007 Music and Interactive-Film Festival in Austin,Texas."
I sent a piece for this today, last minute thing, as I dropped the ball on this one for a bit. Check it out and all these amazing peoples at the Stolenspace gallery on Brick Lane.
If anyone goes, can someone please take a photo for me, I didn't get a mniute to scan my piece, so gods knows what it'll look like.
