Spanish graffiti artist Pez opened his first UK solo show last Thursday (April 5th) at Tony's Gallery in London,and seeing him working on some of the pieces the week before the opening I myself was quite excited for this show.
On opening night the walls were adorned with vibrant fish a plenty which turned out a large crowd. The gallery was packed full which meant it was little difficult to move, but with all the smiling fish in the room everyone was in good spirits. In the back of the gallery they even set up the Pez bar making sure everyone was having a good time which even had a backdrop of a lounging fish on the sunny beach.
There were several things you could purchase besides the work on the walls and even the custom Pez figure. He had stickers, postcards, and even his series 3 fatcap figures on sell along with the screen print that Tony's released for the show.
If you get the chance and are a fan of his work go check out this show but if you can't make it you can see more of his work on his site at www.el-pez.com It runs till the 6th of May.
Below are some of the shots from the opening night as well as some of the pieces on display.
