WHEN  9th June 2014
WHERE  Online

#SOAP Aka Adam Klodzinski, who was born in Bydgoszcz in Poland and started spraying walls and trains as a teenager with car spray, which was all there was at the time and went onto spray paint murals and portraits of recognizable icons - has his first major exhibition at The West Bank Gallery in London.

His photo-realism pieces looking uncannily like photographs but are instead created with a mix of aerosol sprays and airbrushes. He started experimenting with street graffiti, walls, trains together with his late pal Pawel Nowicki and they were the first graffiti crew to emerge from Poland at the time - B2. In 2006 he moved to London, working in a custom vehicle workshop spraying cars, motorcycle tanks and even jet skis until his break came in 2008 with his first collection, “Jazz Band.” Consisting of six separate portraits of legendary musicians, including the great late Louis Armstrong.

Recent commissions have included portraits of recognizable artists such as Florence and the Machine, Ed Sheeran, Dizzee Rascal, and Rihanna to name but a few with personal requests from Professor Green, Plan B and The Rizzle Kicks all of which will be a part of the works in the show, alongside 15 new pieces of work a mix of photo-realism, Surrealism and 3D lettering.

The whole Polish graffiti scene is very, very strong and has actually changed the country from being grey and somber to one that oozes creativity and colour and boasts some amazing artists such as the world famous Etam Cru. You can see 11 story high buildings boasting huge graffiti murals and these are created with the support of local councils. If you are interested I have the Head of Culture from Bydgoszcz that would happily be interviewed and express how pro-graffiti Poland is as a country and how they actively embrace graffiti/street art as an art form to regenerate the city and to prevent tagging.
