THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE – ART+CULTURE: Byroglyphics (14 pieces)

Show runs May 22–June 13th @ Signal Gallery: London

One of our favorite artists, Russ Mills aka Byroglyphics, is at it again. In his first London solo show at Signal Gallery, Byroglyphics presents “Domestic Science'”, a series of large mixed media canvases. In a span of a year, Byroglyphics has found himself in a fortunate position. He originally launched his career by producing a series of stunning prints that he sold independently through the internet for $25. After selling out and becoming more popular, he has gone on to show in several galleries. If you are further interested, you can check out Alice’s previous post for more info and illustrations from Byroglyphics.
