Shab – Featured artist May the 4th be with you

Here is some of the fabulous work by Shab who is exhibiting at May the 4th be with you exhibition at The Matchbox Gallery.

Shab is one of the most prolific and game changing graffiti artists of the Bristol 80’s & 90’s scene.

He was also one of the first artists to start painting at the infamous Barton Hill Dug Out. Shab is known for experimenting profusely with styles, imagery and concepts and particularly best recognised by his “broken arrow” wildstyle .

You can see new work from him at the May the 4th be with you exhibition along with some more rather cool Bristol artists.
