The international street artist will create his own anthology of animals similar to Medieval illustrated bestiaries that described and created morals for God’s creatures. Phlegm’s immersive installation will gather his beings that normally reside on the side of derelict buildings, bringing his distinctively drawn mural style inside to create new legends.
Bestiaries are illustrated compilations of beasts - real and imaginary - that were popular in the middle ages. In this immersive exhibition, the artist creates a bestiary from the dark recesses of his mind. Some of the creatures seem terrestrial, while others are not of this world. Completely covering the gallery walls and using a range of materials, the images are remarkably detailed and richly textured. The exhibition is a little sinister but also oddly compelling. Well worth a look. For more of the latest art news and reviews, check out www.curatedlondon.co.uk
