This Is The Spot!


20 January 2017 - 25 February 2017

Kicking off 2017 in January is ‘This Is The Spot!’ – the highly anticipated debut solo show by UK female street artist, Shuby.

Inspired by movie posters, small ads and tart cards ‘This Is the Spot!’ explores the beginnings of the UK porn industry. Shuby has created a body of large silkscreen one-off canvases, executed in a traditional pop art style.

In addition to the works on canvas, Shuby has created two editions of five large wall mirrors featuring silkscreen images. One set resembles comical X-Ray Spex, the other are the iconic frames of the inimitable anti porn campaigner Mary Whitehouse, disapprovingly framing scantily dressed ladies. 

Shuby commented: “The show is an appreciation of the history and humorous graphics that have sold us the promise of sex from a bygone era.”

This Is The Spot runs until 18th February 2017.
