Chris Bianchi's Summer Solo Show. 

Private view Thursday July 4th 2013, 6–9pm
Show open to public July 5th 'til 17th.
RED Gallery, Rivington Street, London, EC2A 3DT. http://www.redgallerylondon.com/


Chris Bianchi's work draws upon elements of the every day, exposing the under belly of life in black and white with an inky fever, rededicating and mangling religious and psychedelic icons and other worldly curiosities and committing them to paper.  

BURNING SMILE is Chris' first London solo show, hosted by the RED gallery on Rivington Street. The show is a work-in-progress starting a week before it opens to the public. Chris works intuitively, with a possessed energy, so being in the gallery space as the show takes form is the right thing to do. He has worked and collaborated with RED for the past few years, forming a bond between artist and gallery which has enabled this loose project to come to fruition. The show will also feature collaborative pieces created with guest artists.

All work in BURNING SMILE is for sale, and a smaller exhibition of Chris' earlier work including prints will be shown in the Bird and Ballard Cafe next to RED gallery.
