Jacob Ovgren’s SEX (Sick Emotions X-ibit) 

One of the main graphic artists behind European skateboard powerhouse Polar Skateboards, Jacob Ovgren’s work is skate-art in it’s purest form. influenced by classic, golden-era board graphics for Blind and World Industries by the likes of Mark McKee, Sean Cliver and Todd Bratrud, Ovgren retains the crude, adolescent humour (rollerbladers getting their legs guillotined off, obese children fighting over scraps of cake…) of those artists, but eschews the overtly direct, comic-book-narrative that those artists used: Instead we find individual characters trapped in a dialogue only with themselves - snippets of a story that, only when brought together - perhaps as a series of boards, or, in this case, a body of work form part of a wider commentary on a subject.SEX (Sick Emotions X-ibit) will be an exhibition of new drawings, paintings and prints by Malmö based Ovgren. With his trademark dark humour, the work in SEX provocatively sees child-like characters in a range of disturbing sexual scenarios.The exhibition will be Ovgren’s first solo exhibition. It will open February 27th 2014 and run until March 23rd.

Beach London is excited to announce an exhibition of new artwork by Jon Burgerman. ‘Tumblr Girls’ is a series of 100 portraits of girls found on the social blogging network Tumblr. 

Whilst Tumblr serves many adolescents as a place to keep a diary of found online media - be it artwork, skateboarding, girls, musings or just about anything else - as well as sharing fellow users’ posts, Burgerman has become encompassed by this escapist, almost fantastical world. 

'Tumblr Girls' will be opening at Beach London Gallery on 27th March, 2014. 

In the mean time, Malarky’s show ‘Puppy Snatcher’ is still showing at Beach Gallery until February. Come down and check it out before it’s too late!
