London gallery announces solo show from renowned street artist Malarko


Malarko, the renowned Street Artist and ceramicist synonymous with London’s Brick Lane shutters, will be coming to BSMT gallery in Dalston this July for a solo show. The exhibition, ‘FLOMPER’, will take place from July 29th until August 18th.

Much like the naive energy and clunky precariousness characteristic of his work, ‘FLOMPER’, as the Urban Dictionary suggests, promises to deliver the unexpected and something a little out of the ordinary. The exhibition will feature a brand-new collection of contemporary paintings and ceramics, as well as revisiting some old classics.

Originally from south east London, Malarko’s style is rooted in the low-brow art of early skate mags before the actual experience of painting on bumpy shutters led him to simplify his designs.

It was when he started studying ceramics in Stoke on Trent that his work really diversified and became his go-to medium with which to bastardise his experience of everyday life. Both playful and serious, Malarko has merged the appropriation of popular culture with found objects, stylising his paintings and ceramics to elevate these ideas into something completely refreshing and outspoken.
