People, Places, Trains, Walls, Faces: 30 Years of Documenting Graffiti and Street Art
An exhibition of photography by Frank ‘Steam156’ Malt
Join us for an artist talk with Frank "Steam156", as part of his graffiti photography exhibition at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning.
The exhibition will showcase a range of selected, rarely and ‘never seen before’ images from Frank ‘Steam156’ Malt’s collection. The photos, taken by Frank Malt on many of his travels around the world between 1985-2015, will offer an exciting glimpse and insider’s view in to the world of the graffiti writer, from graffiti and street art on walls and trains to images of the artists themselves.
As a former graffiti writer, Frank has had unprecedented access to many of the most significant and interesting talents in graffiti writing and has spent many years photographing them, the places that they work and their lifestyle. This, accompanied by the fact that Frank has been tireless in his documentation of graffiti, has resulted in an impressive archive of photographs.
This will be a unique opportunity to view images from one of the largest and most comprehensive private graffiti archives in the world - and you will get to meet Frank and ask him all about it!
