Street art at Socio Rehab

Traffic warden artist stars at Socio's street art showcase

Published on August 22nd 2008.


Street art at Socio Rehab

Socio Rehab are hosting an urban art exhibition featuring the stencil artist whose traffic warden image had people wondering whether Banksy had taken a trip to Manchester last May.

The image appeared on the former fish market building, before being swiftly removed by the city council. At Socio Rehab in the Northern Quarter you'll be able to see more work by its creator, BAM, plus portraits from Liverpool's Danny O'Connor and work from PoSh oNe – who uses skateboards, snowboards, trainers and mopeds as his canvas. There will be over 25 original pieces on show, and exclusive hand-printed, signed, limited edition prints from both BAM and PoSh oNe will be on sale.

The showcase, called Lay It Up – Episode 1, will be on from Tuesday 26 to Thursday 28 August at Socio Rehab in the Northern Quarter. On Tuesday from 6pm till 9pm there'll be a launch party with a live paint from PoSh oNe, graffiti-inspired cocktails, and DJs. Free entry. We'll see you there.
