Introducing ‘RELICS’, the brand new solo show from Bristol-based contemporary street artist Copyright.
The exhibition of new works includes sculpture, canvases and works on paper which explore the artists’s interest in blurring the lines between history, mythology and modern life. Using his characteristic ‘modern hieroglyphics’ to allude to hidden narrative within his images, the tattoos and urban symbology blend seamlessly into classical compositions to further bridge the gap across time and genre.
Having called on Renaissance paintings for inspiration in much of his street art, Copyright aims for even more ambiguity with his most recent show. Here we are presented with modern depictions of old legends, mythological creatures and strangely timeless female forms, alongside familiar contemporary objects appearing as artefacts from some fantastical parallel history. Adorned in his tell-tale lavish colours and lashings of gold leaf, these Relics celebrate the artist’s past present and future simultaneously.
