Fish Island’s Stour Space Gallery will be hosting street artist Don’t Fret’s exhibition ‘The Greatest The City Could Offer Me Was a Stranger’ at Stour Space Gallery in Fish Island from 5th till 24th November. Due to the current Covid lockdown, the exhibition is now online.
Based in Chicago, Don’t Fret is most well-known for his wheat-pasting practice but also paints, draws, sculpts and performs. He has produced large-scale murals in Chicago, New York, Miami, San Francisco and Denver as well as internationally in cities like London, São Paulo, Helsinki, and Berlin.
A street artist, Don’t Fret has nonetheless been exhibited in numerous galleries all over the world. His career allows him to produce art that is at the crossroad between practices, humour and critique, the street and the gallery. Inspired by pop culture and cartoons, he offers uncompromising political commentaries on contemporary society’s flaws. He expresses an honest and introspective standpoint which makes his practice unique.
