Opening on May 1st and running to 31st of May – Ashes57 is an illustrator, painter and photographer whose work has provided some of the most iconic images of the underground bass music scene from the early days of dubstep through to footwork and beyond.
From the flyers and posters she produced for the legendary Dub War parties in New York to record covers for labels including DMZ, Swamp 81 and Hyperdub, her illustrations, design work and photography have provided the visual foil to many of the most exciting moments in electronic music of recent years.
Other musical collaborations include the artwork for the Wu-Tang Clan’s 2009 album, Enter the Dubstep, and the videos for three DJ Rashad tracks released on Teklife and Hyperdub.
A distinctive visual style links her illustration, painting and print work – images which are dense and detailed with fine and intricate lines. Her complex cityscapes, rendered in a largely monochromatic palette with an occasional burst of colour, are playgrounds for a revolving cast of DJs, musicians and revellers.
The opening night features music by Taso (Teklife) & Project 13 and is sponsored by Pistonhead Lager.
