I just came back from London where I spent a week working on an indoor mural for a private commission. As the design was going to cover the entire surface of one wall, and the rest of the room being already full with art we decided to go for a limited colour palette.
Back in the summer I had the very unique experience to create a 3D installation for ITV. The piece was used to film an Ident that was shown in September as part of ITV Creates artist series. The ident is viewable in the UK on ITV’s website: https://www.itv.com/itvcreates/september/florence-blanchard
New paintings and hand-printed works by Florence Blanchard & Kid Acne are currently on view at BLK BX x Trinity Leeds in a rare two person exhibition. The show, titled YES PLEASE! runs until February 24th, supported by additional prints from the B&B archives, celebrating some of the studio’s favourite collaborations and most popular graphics.

Last week and last chance to check out the summer group show at Stolenspace gallery in London.
StolenSpace Gallery is delighted to present, ‘Wish You Were Here’, an eclectic showcase featuring original works from 40 leading urban contemporary artists.
Prompted with the prototypical postcard sentiment, each artist reimagines the phrase and translates it into their own visual language – setting their work in conversation with the many other creative minds featured in the show. Whereas some choose to uphold the typical associations of travel and summer vacation, others select less conventional interpretations, such as unrequited love, detachment and separation. The result of this variation offers a genuine overview of the vast and consistently increasing diversity of urban artists working cross the globe today – a diversity with StolenSpace is honoured to represent.
Featuring work by; Adam Caldwell, Alexander Chappell, Alexis Diaz, Augustine Kofie, Beau Stanton, Ben Frost, Buff Monster, Case Maclaim, C215, D*Face, David Bray, Drew Leshko, Erik Jones, Florence Blanchard, Herakut, Jaime Molina, Jason Woodside, Josie Morway, Kai and Sunny, Kevin Cyr, Mando Marie, Miss Van, Mysterious Al, Nic Bowers, Okuda, Paul Stephenson, PICHIAVO, Pref, RYCA, Remi Rough, Seth Armstrong, Shepard Fairey, Sylvia Ji, The London Police, The Lost Object, Von, Vinnie Nylon, Will Barras, Zest
