The time has arrived for the opening show, at the new ‘Guerilla Art Gallery’, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. A VIEW TO A KILL is a group show of graffiti photography. Featuring a spectrum of visual artists from across the globe. Included in the exhibition are; infamous graffiti photographers Alex Fakso and Ozkar Gorgias, right through to some of the most prolific vandals such as COPE 2 of New York and NUG of Stockholm, with many more yet to be confirmed. This wealth of hardcore graffiti talent is more than just an indulgence in vandalism. A VIEW TO A KILL is an insight into the secretive urban culture of graffiti. The exhibition focuses on the pre-meditation, the quiet before the storm, the action itself and the moments of glory. The tactics and the determination of the graffiti writer, become glaringly apparent, whether he is in front of the lens or behind it. ‘Guerilla Art Gallery’ in no way condones these acts of vandalism, but we are as sure as hell, that it makes for some insightful photographs. So come and join us at the preview evening on Thursday the17th of May. Or keep up to date with the happenings at www.guerillaartgallery.com.
