Internationally renowned street artist Fin DAC, considered one of the artists most worth collecting alive of his genre, is on display for the first time in London with his long-awaited solo exhibition ‘Afterglow/Undertow’. This is of course a prime opportunity for collectors to experience a Fin DAC exhibition. Because due to his hectic international schedule and his unwavering principle of only producing artwork of the finest quality, these kinds of events are extremely rare.
West Contemporary, long-term collaborator, gallerists and a fixture themselves in contemporary British art, are charged with hosting ‘Afterglow/Undertow’, a culmination of twelve months of studio work and six years of street work. Recent collaborations between the gallery and artist have included the sold-out print project ‘Velveteen’ and the Spring 2021 collision between Fin DAC and Mick Rock, the celebrated English rock photographer, who teamed up for ‘Midaro’ – a mixed-media reimagining of Rock’s portraiture work with Debbie Harry, Lou Reed, David Bowie, and Iggy Pop that garnered significant press around the world, and again, completely sold out.
Since Fin DAC’s last (and only) solo show, ‘Nadeshiko’, in Venice Beach, California, in 2015, he has criss-crossed the globe adding his artwork and building adaptations to major world cities such as Paris, Berlin, Milan, Tokyo, Melbourne, Sydney, L.A, New York, Miami, as well as locations less synonymous with street art such as Tahiti, New Zealand and Guadalajara.
Gallery Different, located in Fitzrovia – one of the city’s most impressive artistic regions – is the chosen venue for ‘Afterglow/Undertow’ due to its versatility and ability to afford the artist carte blanche to curate an immersive experience. Included in the show will be the artist’s first bronze and stone/gold sculptures, a 10-year anniversary homage to ‘Killer Instinct’, as well as 26 new large-scale original showpieces and a selection of one-off prints/collages and sketches.
AFTERGLOW/UNDERTOW BY FIN DAC Show runs from Saturday, 23 October, through Saturday, 30 October 2021, at Gallery Different, 14 Percy Street, London, W1T 1DR, UK
