I'm very excited to share the news about my upcoming second solo show at The Herbert in Coventry. It's called 'A History Of Us'. a stencilled (sort of) history of the human race. This video will explain everything you need to know!
The show is open from 13th June to 4th October, so you have a good chance to catch it. So if you find yourself in Coventry in a couple months, check out the show and the rest of the massive museum. You can stay up to date with the show on Facebook here.
There's a private launch on Friday, 12th June and if you're interested, let me know so I can get you down on the list.
Saturday 13 June 2015 to Sunday 4 October 2015 Witty, sometimes factual and often a little bit subversive, A History of Us takes visitors on a wry journey through the (sort of) history of the human race, starring a riot of tiny, graphic people.
Spray painted with stencils and offering an unconventional view of the past, this is our history as seen through the eyes of street artist Pahnl.
From primal prehistory, to the pyramid-building Egyptians, the proud Romans, the dim Dark Ages, the industrious Victorians, and the World Wars that followed, the exhibition hurtles toward life today and onwards to a speculative future. Look out for the dawning of inventions like the wheel, pointy swords, alcohol, politicians, electricity bills, flight and predictive text.
Pahnl has been painting tiny people and animals for over 10 years and this is his biggest challenge to date. His 44-metre long miniature history of humanity tells a fascinating story about our past, our love of discord and progress, and what the future (maybe) holds for the human race.
If you're in Coventry and fancy a bit of Pahnl artwork of your very own. Check out @the_Herbert 's twitter. Or stuff that and just race to the Starbucks in the shopping arcade. It's in the wall and planty bit outside. Hurry! HURRY NOW!
