ORGAN PREVIEW: Opening this Wednesday, Monument’s Value, a solo show from French artist Brusk at East London’s StolenSpace…


One last chance before you know what, and well, back to lockdown and almost certainly probably rightly so, too late again, but rightly so even though these dreadful self-serving only-care-about-themselves Tories have made a complete and utter mess of absolutely everything in terms of the Covid pandemic (other that making sure they profit out of it themselves, they’ve been rather good at doing that). What a mess they’ve made of the “world-beating” track and trace, the rules that don’t apply to Dominic Cummings and his mates like they do for the the rest of us. This year has been a disaster made many times worse by a Government who really do think the basis of society should be everyone for themselves and survival of the fittest, I’m alright Jack, sod the rest of you, probably you’re fault that you weren’t born into privilege, if you can’t afford health care then tough as they destroy the NHS…

Stop stop stop, no ranting today, we’re back in lockdown, the Tories are making a mess of it, Prime Minister Benny Hill doesn’t appear to have a clue, Dido and her Tory MP of a husband are laughing their heads off as count their profits (maybe we can track and trace some of that money?) and well the

StolenSpace Gallery say they are “proud to present the solo exhibition, ‘Monument’s Value’, by French artist, Brusk. This show sees Brusk use his beautiful, signature ‘trickling’ style to comment on the current global climate, in a thought-provoking yet beautiful manner”.

“Brusk is a French artist born in Saint Priest, near Lyon. He created his initial graffiti work at the Lyon Part Dieu station, after first discovering street art during the 90’s. From this initial interest, Brusk attended the Fine arts school in Saint Etienne. After he graduated, he joined the famous European street art group: DMV (Da Mental Vaporz). Brusk’s work stands out, due to his instantly recognisable use of the ‘trickling’ technique. Brusk’s work is multi-faceted, as he creates his artwork across varying mediums. His artistic style has continued to evolve throughout time; developing new technical expertise which are expressed through many different styles, such as figurative, abstract, realist and graphic work. With Monument’s Value, Brusk once again takes the pencil to plant it in the wounds of modernity. HIs work is revealing of a humanity thrown into the post-truth, where facts and reality have become floating and uncertain. Brusk conjures images such as a bee cemetery, the melting of the Statue of Liberty, disintegrating emergency doctors, and a drifting of humanity at sea. However, beyond these dystopian compositions, Brusk also signs a form of commitment and reminds us that the fight is also documented and played on canvas”.

Stolen Space is at 17 Osborn Street, Whitechapel, London, E1 6TD. There’s an opening night that the gallery say is still happening on Wednesday 4th November and the show is scheduled to run until November 29th as is the latest lockdown so you probably need to go have a look at the gallery website for the latest news. There’s an Emily Fromm show running in the sapace at the same time
