Mr Jago - Cloud Talk At Stolenspace GalleryWe are very excited about Mr Jago’s first London solo show, which opens on Thursday at Stolenspace gallery in Brick Lane. He really has grafted over past few months to create the biggest body of work he has ever produced, so if you are a fan (or not) then you really should make an effort to get there. The show runs from the 11th to the 28th September.

Mr Jago will be showcasing new work on canvas, silk and paper and there is also an incredibly beautiful installation to see. There will also be the release of a new limited edition, 5 colour screen print (the featured flyer image), priced at £75 in an editon of 75.

When asked about the inspiration for his work Jago stated, "Of all weather phenomena, I find clouds the most fascinating from the silky-filaments of high-altitude cirrus to the towering, threatening mass of storm-bearing cumulonimbus; clouds are as varied as the new work itself". Regarding his thoughts about clouds he expanded, "I love cloud watching: from nowhere the fluffy mass morphs from a cunning fox with whispy ears into familiar faces. I see figures and forms everywhere: in water, carpet patterns, shadows, clouds; everything is an abstract character and they are free".

Mr Jago's loose line and organic flow are unmistakable: rich with heavy movement and perpetually shifting shape, he describes his work as 'itchy' and 'dynamic.' Purposeful robotic giants inhabit ethereal environments that envelope and enliven, constantly exploring notions of space and depth.

Mr Jago's latest body of work confidently displays a looser, more instinctive style, which embraces abstraction and plays with a mixture of mediums and hues in an ever freer manner.

The doors open open at 6.30pm.
