‘After successful shows in Austria, France and Cornwall, we’re stoked to announce that we’re bringing it back home with our first show of 2013 at the 71a Gallery in London’s Shoreditch.
Looking Sideways London will feature unique work from ten world-renowned and innovative artistic talents: Ben Allen, Will Barras, Pete Fowler, French, Michael C. Hsiung, Tim Karpinski, Phil Morgan, Schoph, Corey Smith and Owen Tozer.
Visitors to the show will also have the chance to buy original works, high quality screen prints and very limited edition archival art prints of the unique pieces the ten artists are creating for the show.
“I wasn’t gonna show in the UK for a couple of years”, says Schoph, one of the artists exhibiting at the show. “But the opportunity to exhibit at a show where all the artists still shred, surf or skate makes sense. The line up is brilliant as well, with such a diverse range of styles. They’re all great artists with their individual deal going off. Standard”.

Looking Sideways London show will also mark the launch of the new Looking Sideways website and online shop, meaning visitors to the site will now able to buy unique original work and prints from featured LS artists.
