Street Art Duo ‘The London Police’ Launch Solo Exhibition Curated by DK Johnston at the Quin Hotel, August 18
The Quin hotel’s global street art series takes an inspired turn starting on August 18th, as the Amsterdam-based street art duo The London Police launch a solo exhibition curated by DK Johnston. New York’s quintessential luxury lifestyle hotel, the Quin, located at the corner of 57th Street and Sixth Avenue, has delighted guests and local art aficionados with compelling Quin Arts programming focused on international street artists throughout 2016.
The London Police, whose last solo show in New York was more than ten years ago at the Opera Gallery, epitomize both the evolution of the street art form and the increased attention it continues to garner. Known for their iconic LADS characters and precision marking, The London Police have celebrated more than 10 strong years in the art world and their work has graced streets and galleries in 35 countries during this time. In 2015, The London Police were commissioned to complete a mural at Sun Life Stadium, in Miami. This year, they added a mural to the high-profile Coney Art Walls project in Coney Island, curated by Jeffrey Deitch.
Angelo Madrigale, Directory of Contemporary Art, Doyle, commented “I’ve always been drawn to The London Police because their work doesn’t look like anyone else’s. The backgrounds of their paintings have always fascinated me — highly detailed cities of the future that look like Blade Runner rubbed squeaky clean.”
The London Police launch their exhibit at the Quin with an artist salon on Thursday, August 18th, in which hotel guests and invited guests will meet with Chaz, one half of the influential duo, and enjoy the exhibition debut. The exhibition will be on view to the public in the Quin’s lobby and drawing room level through September.
