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.
Amid the sometime greyness of the city, RUN's colourful creations emit an air of mysticism and spirituality that sits at odds with many Londoners' tiny poor lives. It is perhaps this contrast that gives his art power..
At the opening private view night. Take a look at a selection of photos below; all images are by Chuck Noble.
''Dancer Master'' makes it to East End's Review front page.
