LONDON: SICKBOY. MAKE IT LAST FOREVER

Sickboy's Make It Last show opened last night at The Outsiders, London.
It was packed to the rafters with Sickboy's colourful crazy and bizarre creations. Work on paper, wood metal and canvas. A large size installation at one end of the sweltering downstairs gallery was perfectly visible from the beer table. There is not much room for an artist that has his own uniquely different path to grow in the eye's of just anyone, you have to like Sickboy's art at first sight then you will like it forever.
Sickboy delivered what was expected which was just perfect.
The show runs up to 30th August. 
A few photos below and more on the artbleat facebook page HERE
