Sheffield-based street artist Phlegm opened his first ever gallery show at Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch on Saturday, the first of February.
The Bestiary is a non-commercial exhibition arranged as a collection of his old and new characters:some presented in jars on the shelves, and some placed in the middle of action, or in their ‘natural’ habitat. Don’t miss (ends 4th March).
