“Loaded With Meaning” opens this Friday and is an exhibition from one of the UK’s most colourful talents, T.Magic. Featuring over forty new works consisting of original paintings, photography, sculptures and silk-screens the pieces in the show explore Magic’s dark social commentary
His theme: the London Council Estate. Drawing inspiration from experiences growing up in what the 24-year-old street artist describes as ‘The Black Hole,’ which he feels is a distinct and unknown territory isolated from the rest of society. “It’s a world of the displaced where no-one from outside enters and where the inhabitants stay; an area synonymous – in the public mind – with poverty, crime and ethnic conflict.”
After two successful exhibitions at The Air Gallery in Mayfair – along with counting Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams as fans of his art – T.Magic’s is ready for the new exhibition this Friday with some fresh new work.
