Press Release: Best Pussy

Niki Best is back on the gallery scene. And no one is better placed to gather together some of the far flung strands of contemporary street art and knit them into a new shape (a balaclava may be?).

Niki Best has joined forces with Pussy Home Boutique to bring you a proper end to the Brighton Festival show, incased in a sunny spot close to the seafront. The bright gallery upstairs at the big Pussy store is a great venue to view these desirable, affordable and collectable pieces. With a weather eye to the future value, we are showing passionate work by inspired young artists.
The works on show are drawn from Niki's own extensive collection of rare and collectable prints together with new works by some of the artists she gave space to when they were new kids on her Clerkenwell block. When her gallery closed she took time out to relocate to Brighton, recuperate, and raise her son. Always ahead of the game, she was promoting and collecting the work of up-coming artists when some of them were barely out of nappies themselves. Her eye for vibrant, relevant talent has been proved again and again by the quality of the commissions and reputation that many of them have continued to make.
The show includes vintage framed and unframed, signed, limited edition prints from Frank Kozik, Nick Walker, Mike Giant, Rikki Marr, Shepard Fairey, Noah Butkus, Astek and Matt Sewell to name but a few.
New and exclusive work comes from Pinky, INSA, Danny Sangra, and illustrious illustrators such as Curly Mark, Al Murphy, Alex Binnie, Saira Hunjun and Bert, amongst others. Brighton's own Pinky will be contributing a mural in his eye-popping, life and love-affirming psychedelic style to the walls of the boutique.

Press view Thursday 21st May 7pm-9pm

Open to the public Friday 22nd May. Free entry
