Pixel Pancho: Memory of Our Life

  • Stolen Space 17 Osborn Street E1 6TD United Kingdom (map)

Join us for a gallery visit at Stolen Space and a stroll down Brick Lane to see some of the new street art in the area.

With a formal art education from the Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, Pixel Pancho is not your typical Urban Artist. Influenced by painters such as Joaquin Sorolla and Salvador Dali, both can be seen to influence Pancho's unmistakable style being both painterly and figurative with a Dadaist twist.

Pancho started painting in the streets while at art college and the theme which expresses a personal stamp on all his works is the focus on humanising the robotic form.

Androids made up of metal, screws, and gears, resembling characters from futuristic films or sci-fi novels. With rusty exteriors and mechanism's exposed, Pancho's robots are extensions of human bodies and the reflections of mankind trying to be gods by creating them.

Known especially for his huge robot-filled murals, his love for graffiti has taken him all around the world. For his first exhibition in London, Pixel Pancho will be transforming gallery 2 with an installation which will transport viewers into a surreal robotic environment.

We will meet at the gallery for the exhibition and then walk along Brick Lane to see one of Pancho's most recent murals and assess the state of the street art together.
