Worldwide renowned street artist Sickboy presents a retrospective from 10 years of his artist proofs and special editions at his UK based Bristol studio from Friday 29 April – Sunday 1 May.

The retrospective will feature his best-loved work with some of the world’s best screen-print houses such as Pictures on walls and Lazarides alongside private press editions from his own long running independent output "Save the Youth".

The show will be the first open studio in the UK by a well-known street artist. Sickboy will be throwing open the doors of his central Bristol studio where he has been working on off for the last 2 years and housing the collection in a site specific install, that will bring together elements from all his installations carried out across the world, the location revealed 24hrs prior to the event via RSVP possible only by subscribing at info@thesickboy.com or directly via the website.

The show will be soundtracked with a specially curated heritage music score from Sickboy’s longstanding Bristol stable mate Redg Weeks from Invada Records, infamous for contributing to the rise of popularity in Soundtrack culture.

The label has a reputation for releasing outsider alternative music with no limitations or restrictions on genre, style or even format. Since its inception the company has released music by artists such as Gonga, Julian Cope, Thought Forms, BEAK>, The Fauns, Adrian Utley, The KVB, Sleaford Mods, Drokk, College, Fairhorns, and CUTS to name but a few, so expect some supreme sonic soundtrack eclectic-ness.

Sickboy is a leading artist to emerge from Bristol's infamous graffiti scene, Sickboy's humorous works have cemented his place in the upper echelons of the British street art movement.

He is one of the first UK artists to use a logo in place of a tag, and his red and yellow street logo known as 'The Temple' and his Save the Youth slogan can be seen on walls and wheelie bins worldwide. 

Sickboy has built up one of the largest bodies of street art works in UK history, which has led to him being tipped by the leading financial press as one of the movement's most bankable artists. His major London solo show in 2008 and audacious stunts - including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern last year - have landed him global recognition. 

Sickboy's work has featured in countless worldwide Graffiti books and documentary films including Banksy’s oscar-nominated exit through the gift shop, and in global and national TV, newspapers and magazines including BBC London news, the Financial Times, The Independent, I-D and many more.
