DOWNTOWN/ ASHES 57
Ashes 57’s work takes its roots in the buzz and lights of cities, urban landscapes and the music that accompanies them. Inspired by New York’s early 80s cultural scene and Downtown81, the exhibition presents a series of black and white drawings that tell a fantastic journey through the 57 boroughs from Brooklyn to Manhattan, from Queens back to London.
Having previously worked with Shepard Fairey in his Los Angeles design studio, collaborating on a number of Obey projects, Ashes 57 is art director of COOL’Eh Magazine, LAVA Collective and SWAMP. Ashes also produced posters and flyers for the legendary Dub War parties and she was invited by The Wu-Tang Clan to illustrate the cover of their 2009 album Enter the Dubstep.
Recent work includes a collaboration with the Future Me TV series for MTV and board graphics for Palmer Snowboards. Also co-founder of LAVA Collective, she curated the collective’s first highly successful group show at the Truman Brewery in London’s East End.
