Forgive me for forever mentioning Brighton's finest, Unlimited Shop, every two minutes but they have yet again created an amazing exhibition in the gallery space of their graphic design and creative lifestyle store. Owner Sara has such a knack for spotting talent and developing relationships so it comes as no surprise that their latest showcase presents the work of the incredible Supermundane (aka Rob Lowe).
Titled Super Super, the exhibition explores typography, colours, depth and movement with Lowe's signature slogans and shapes taking centre stage, turning Unlimited in 'a kaleidoscopic world of patterns'. From my favourite YES print to the crazy mad Tropical Hot Dog Night design, every corner of the shop has been Supermindane'd and from small to large pieces, you're guaranteed to find something to fill any gap in your wall (or the one you just mentally made).
"In planning our 2016 exhibitions it was very much a wish list of who we felt were inspiring to us and who had not been showcased in Brighton.. We're huge fans of Robs work as it compliments the graphic aesthetic of Unlimited." explained Sara when I asked her how the exhibition came about. "We started chatting at the beginning of the year and we'd so chuffed he said yes to a solo shoe with us! He's gone full out and produced an entire body of new prints plus two murals on the shop!"
And indeed the murals make it a must-visit - free Instagram content with every purchase - yes bloody please! The outside mural ties in brilliantly with the pre-existing Gary Stranger piece while monochrome inside provides a wonderful contrasting setting for the mass of colourful work Lowe has created. All in all it's not to be missed on any trip to Brighton and if you're already starting with the Christmas shopping, it's the perfect place to snap up goodies for your friends and family while also supporting an independent business - guilt free purchasing if I do say so myself!
