Frank ‘Steam156’ Malt – People, Places, Trains, Walls, Faces
5 February 2015 to 6 March 2015
People, Places, Trains, Walls, Faces: 30 Years of Documenting Graffiti and Street Art.
An exhibition of photography by Frank ‘Steam156’ Malt.
On February 5th Frank Malt ‘Steam156’ in collaboration with HustlBucks Brixton’s youth social enterprise and design agency will host an exhibition of photographs at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning. This unique show will showcase a range of selected, rarely and ‘never seen before’ images from Frank ‘Steam156’ Malt’s collection. The photos, taken by Frank Malt on many of his travels around the world between 1985-2015, will offer an exciting glimpse and insider’s view in to the world of the graffiti writer, from graffiti and street art on walls and trains to images of the artists themselves.
As a former graffiti writer, Frank has had unprecedented access to many of the most significant and interesting talents in graffiti writing and has spent many years photographing them, the places that they work and their lifestyle. This, accompanied by the fact that Frank has been tireless in his documentation of graffiti, has resulted in an impressive archive of photographs. This will be a unique opportunity to view images from one of the largest and most comprehensive private graffiti archives in the world.
