You may have noticed some peculiar beasts appearing throughout London lately, and These are the work of the provocatively named street artist: Phlegm. Bestiary exhibition photo ‘Bestiary’, Phlegm’s new exhibition, opened at the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch at the start of February. For those of you who, like me, don’t know what a ‘bestiary’ is – it is an illustrated book of animals, featuring information about how they live and what they look like. Bestiary exhibition photo From the website: “A bestiary was not a scientific text and while some beasts and descriptions were quite accurate, others were completely fanciful.” For the exhibition, Phlegm has created his own fantastical array of creatures using spray paint and working in both low and high relief.
