Margate Gallery is proud to present – “Atopy and the Raindog”, a solo exhibition of works by urban Artist Teddy Baden.
Teddy is a stencil artist well known for his street paintings of dogs. His work is a celebration of a long standing relationship between humans and their hairy counterparts! Teddy has always marvelled at the scope, appearance and character of these hairy aliens who live and sit alongside us.
His street works especially exude a vivacious wit and combination of humour and cynicism… where dogs wear snorkels and spew coloured paint.
Recent works resemble quirky oddball fairytales, with vibrant colours layered onto vintage wooden crates and salvaged board, juxtaposing emblematic slogans and sweet shop pop on torn edge Indian khadi cotton. Expect an injection of eye candy and playful homage to the dog.
Teddy studied Fine Art under Brian Griffiths and Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller. He’s also known for his organisational and curatorial involvement for the Mutate Britain events; the Robin Hood Tax Campaign (with actor Bill Nighy) and as founder of Whitecross Street Party – Rise of the Non Conformists.
Teddy is available for Pet Portrait (dogs only) commissions and all bookings are to be made via the Margate Gallery. For this exhibition Teddy will be stencilling an artwork in a surprise location in Margate Old Town and at GB Pizza in Margate.
Please join us for the After Party from 8:30pm at GB Pizza 14 Marine Drive, Margate CT9 1DH.
“Atopy and the Raindog” exhibition opens on Friday 12th April from 6-8pm and will continue daily until Sunday 12th May 2013.
In dog year’s i’m dead.
