Post Dismal

Jeff Gillette

24 June 2016 - 23 July 2016

Jeff Gillette, the stand-out artist from Banksy's 2015 bemusement park, Dismaland, joins the gallery for his debut UK solo exhibition. This show is one not to miss!   

Hailed as the artist that inspired Dismaland, Gillette’s work may be familiar since Banksy brought it to the British public’s attention last year. While Gillette’s work was included as part of the first-of-its-kind bemusement park, the installations all shared a common theme that echoed the artist’s signature subversion of Disney and its characters.

Featuring 15 paintings, the work in Post Dismal is a continuation of the post-apocalyptic scenes he’s been creating for over 20 years. This time, however, Gillette turns the tables on Banksy, with many scenes in his new work inspired by Dismaland.
