SCION PRESENTS: SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP Curated by the Scrawl Collective
In conjunction with the U.K.’s Scrawl Collective, Scion presents Special Relationship at its 4,500 square foot Installation L.A. Gallery. This show, Scrawl’s biggest to date, is dedicated to exploring the light and dark side of the famous “Special Relationship” that exists between the U.K. and the U.S.A. The Scrawl Collective exhibition will feature specially created installations and new work by artists. Featured Scrawl Collective artists will include Will Barras, Mr Jago, Steff Plaetz, PhlAsh, DistOne, David Walker, Nick Purser, RYCA, Hutch, Ian Stevenson, Will Ainley and Felix Kiessling.
Scrawl Collective is an art and design collective from the U.K. Growing from a small tight-knit group of young English artists who banded together with Scrawl founder Ric Blackshaw in 1999, Scrawl Collective is known for pioneering a doodley, scratchy style of urban art that today has many adherents and can be seen everywhere from street art to mainstream advertising. While remaining true to these roots, Scrawl has expanded over the years picking up new artists along the way and developing the breadth and scope of their work as they go. Scrawl Collective has built up a formidable global reputation for its live art and installation shows and a ready market for its paintings and prints.
