The Chrome Angelz at The Outsiders, showcasing new and unseen work from arguably, Europe’s most influential graffiti crew. In addition, photography and archival work will be exhibited, providing audiences a rare insight into their unique history.
As the creative, yet provocative cultural phenomenon of graffiti art forced its way onto an unsuspected public in the early 1980’s, The Chrome Angelz (TCA) chose to draw upon their own experiences and creative influences, whilst proudly to acknowledging the culture’s rich and important history.
As a collective, their shared interests in the visual arts resulted in a determined and singular commitment to creative expression, allowing them to freely determine a style and approach that was both personal and collaborative.
This show allows The Angelz to regroup once more, with each artist this time exploring inspirations old and new, to present individual statements on their respective creative journeys by way of graffiti art’s enduring and powerful legacy.
Founding member Pride says of the regrouping, “this allows us to reflect on how our creative paths have diverged, and come together again.” This combination of independence, and neutrality, particularly when placed within the flourishing, yet still fiercely competitive UK scene, has in large part inspired their continued drive towards a post ‘golden era’, aerosol aesthetic.
The show is on from 15th June until 14th July
