Street Artists and Collectors Lured to the Call of RUN and his Dancer Master

On Friday evening we launched 'Dancer Master', featuring an exciting new collection of canvas paintings, drawings and sketches created from organic material such as wood, paper, cardboard and jute by street artist RUN. Three-dimensional installations transformed the traditional white wall gallery setting, with marionette cut outs of faces and hands, hanging from the gallery walls, suggesting modern tribalism and insane rituals from another world.

East End Review on RUN's work for the show:
