Andrew McAttee’s pop-up exhibition OHHHHMY! was received with praise from the public last night. We are also pleased to highlight Andrew’s feature in The Independent for his upcoming auction with Bonhams next week. This will be the first Street Art auction in the US, and causing quite a stir in the art world at the moment.

Cedric Bardawil: How did you go from graffiti into studio work, and when did this transition take place? Andrew McAttee: My transformation from graffiti artist to fine artist began to take shape when I was studying at Central Saint Martin’s between 1992 and 1995.

Andrew McAttee will be exhibiting his latest works of art in the Attic: an unconventional space on the top floor of a Victorian building in London. His work draws together inspiration from his background as a graffiti writer (STET), which spanned across three decades beginning in the 1980’s, along with his time as a Fine Art student where he became increasingly interested in Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism. At first glance you’ll notice the hallmarks of bright, bold, eye-catching Pop Art but without a Coca-Cola reference: it’s the mood and shimmer of this movement he is most interested in. McAttee paints landscapes but not in … Continue reading

On Thursday 28th of June 2012 we celebrated the opening of Something in the Attic at the top of a victorian building in the heart of London. As people mingled and champagne was served, we released an exclusive screen print created by David Shillinglaw and DJ Stavef created a soundtrack to the art. The evening went on and David gave a talk on the importance of art: not his art, but art as a medium for expressing one’s self. On Friday 29th the Attic opened a little later, people dressed down and a different energy was in the air. DJs Stavef and Deux Spin were … Continue reading
