European Street Art Exhibition Launches At Hive

The Hive Music and Media Centre in Shrewsbury has unveiled a stunning street art and graffiti exhibition which has been curated by Shrewsbury based artist Matt Sewell.

Featuring work from highly acclaimed European artists as diverse as Kid Acne, Pinky, Ema, Vinnie Nylon and Milk, the show also displays art from Matt Sewell himself, in addition to Sam Coxon and Cloud Commission, amongst many others.

Habib Malik-Mansell, Marketing Assistant at the Hive added “The street art exhibition looks stunning and it’s positive for the centre to be hosting artwork from Europe’s finest and most acclaimed street artists, I highly recommend that people come along to view the show”.

Matt Sewell, curator of the exhibition added “Exhibiting graffiti and street-art in a gallery setting is an impossible task, as by nature these movements are defined by usually being large and generally outdoors. The works produced are always available for the public to take in at will whether they like it or not. But what is achievable is showcasing the bright-side of the output of some of the UK's best and boldest graffiti/street artists with a group exhibition of screen prints and paintings in the confines of the Hive's four white walls.”

The exhibition launched on Monday May 21 and will be on display at the Hive Gallery until Wednesday June 20. For more information visit
