High Roller Society Presents: Sweet Revenge.
Having chewed up the streets of London’s east end, Sweet Toof takes a bite out of Hackney Wick again with his mini retrospective exhibition Sweet Revenge. The show includes a new series of original works plus artwork never seen in the UK before.
Sweet Toof has risen up the ranks as a graffiti artist throughout 80s and 90s, where his letterforms and street styles have evolved alongside a rigorous academic practice as a realist painter and sculptor. Heavily influenced by the Vanitas paintings of sixteenth century Europe, Mexican Day of the Dead, Subway Art, and the underground comics of Vaughn Bodé, his characteristic gummy chompers are a true fusion of street and studio.
Now, the anonymous face that launched a thousand teeth unleashes the beast and charges forward once again—with a fleet of new works and an army of horsemen braced to paint the East End by storm. It’s a call to arms in the battle for free expression: join forces, or else just grin and bear it.
