Art has always been a medium of expression, pushing boundaries, and challenging norms. The exhibition explored the significance we assign to traditional painting and sculpture while questioning the disregard for the value of vandalism and graffiti. 

An Amazing Turnout

Toxic Arts' message resonated with art enthusiasts and the wider public, resulting in an incredible turnout of around 300 people for the opening night on 25th May. The Fitzrovia Gallery in London was abuzz with excitement, as visitors eagerly awaited the unveiling of this stunning exhibition.

A Deeper Message

At the heart of 'Vandal' was a thought-provoking statement by Pang, one of the exhibiting artists. The statement questioned the definition of an artist and highlighted the double standards prevalent in the art world. While some individuals are labeled vandals for scribbling on bathroom walls, others are celebrated and invited to showcase their works in galleries. Toxic Arts aimed to prompt introspection among viewers, challenging them to reconsider the established hierarchy in the art world.

Graffiti: Art for the People

The exhibition showcased graffiti as a powerful art form that, despite being considered vandalism, reaches millions of viewers over the years. The transient nature of graffiti, often created illicitly in public spaces, speaks to its raw authenticity and ability to resonate with people from all walks of life. Toxic Arts sought to shed light on the cultural and historical significance of graffiti, which has roots dating back to ancient civilizations.

The Unseen Artists

Featured artists in the 'Vandal' exhibition were pioneers in their own right, utilizing unconventional mediums to express their creativity. Their works conveyed emotions, thoughts, and perspectives that are often overlooked or ignored by the traditional art world. By highlighting the talent of graffiti artists, Toxic Arts aimed to bridge the gap between the mainstream and the underground, granting recognition to those whose artistic expression was previously marginalized.
