'Just Kill One Lion Every Day' from Dave the Chimp


Dave the Chimp - 'Just Kill One Lion Every Day' - 40cm x 30cm three colour screen print, signed and numbered in an edition of 43.  Available now at 45Euros

Dave writes:
"Just Kill One Lion Every Day" is an African saying that helps me with life.
It reminds me to take care of something important every day, but also reminds me that one lion is enough - I don't need to bust my balls, there's time to go skate, play with my son, or just sit outside and relax!
This print is made with overlaid colours and textures, to give it a thoroughly modern take on 70's style inspirational posters.
Hang it over the breakfast table and start every day with a little sunshine.

Patrick Wong has been in touch with details of his latest piece made for Guzu Gallery's upcoming Children of the 80s show

The molotov man motif has been seen in street art, posters, traditional painting, and of course from its source in editorial photography - the Optimus Prime vinyl toy inspired molotov man is just the latest incarnation.

Guzu Gallery Presents: Children of the 80s




Guzu Gallery look as if they have another incredible upcoming show!!

Guzu Gallery Presents: Children of the 80s - An Art Exhibition Celebrating Cartoons & Toys from the Raddest Decade Ever!

For the generation of children who grew up in the so-called "Decade of Excess", everything that was important about the 80s, everything that mattered, happened on Saturday morning. Forget the Cold War and the war against drugs. Forget the Iran-Contra Scandal. It was all about Saturday morning! So many awesome cartoons! So many awesome toy commercials! Every cartoon had a toy line and every toy line had its cartoon (yes, kids actually played with toys a very, very long time ago). It was a magical era for sure…and Guzu intends to serve up a slice of that nostalgia this summer at their art exhibition titled Children of the 80s. Join Guzu Gallery as they celebrate the cartoons and toys from the raddest decade ever!

'Plastik Schmack!' - upcoming bootleg toy show presented by us!


Time for another SOB show?... hell yeah it is! Only this time, we're getting physical baby!!!! (and in more ways than one). This is how it went:

SOB wrote: "artist dudes, can you please make some kind of awesome/hideous/hilarious toy for our upcoming exhibition?"

Artist dudes:  "urrrh yeah, okay ...is this even legal?"

And so, 'Plastik Schmack!' is in motion! As we speak there are 30 artists totally disrespecting your favourite figures to create new monstrosities for your viewing (and purchasing) pleasure come September 19th. This one differs from our two previous shows, '16Bit BRAWL' and 'The Big Ass Monster Show' because now we have an actual gallery space and everything! Can't make it? No worries, as all of the works will be available to view and purchase right here on SOB.

Our bodacious show flyer was designed by the talented illustrator Lukasz Kowalczuk, the man behind the popular Vreckless Vrestlers zine. Also, think we could have a toy-based art show and not get our homies at Goodleg Toys involved?! FUCKOUTTAHERE!!! ...look out for their appearance a little further down the track.

As always, thank you for reading and please feel free to spread the word like warm butter over your mum's crumpets!
