Mike_Ballard_The_All_of_Everything

Fuck the snow, me and Yang set out today to go street style spotting and visit a few graffiti spots but the drastic change in weather ruined our plans. I hate snow, it’s pretty but its damn cold and turns to ice. So we decided to take cover at our University’s gallery space which is just off Bond Street where we saw this out of this world exhibition by Mike Ballard. It was mind-blowing, the artwork covered the whole room from floor to walls to ceiling; twas a gargantuan installation. Ballard will mix painting, collage and digital media to create an impressive environment that condenses many facets of art in his own unique way. ‘The All of Everything’ draws parallels between the hip-hop styles of graffiti writing and the elaborate excesses of Baroque aesthetics. More photos after the jump.
