For one night only, we are absolutely thrilled to be hosting an exhibition byashes57 with one of the pioneers of bass music joining us for the after party in the intimate setting of The Poetry Club for a celebration of underground bass music. Works and merchandise will be available to purchase.

Ashes57 is an illustrator, painter and photographer whose work has provided some of the most iconic images of the scene from the early days of dubstep through to footwork and beyond.

Collaboration with fellow artists and musicians has been fundamental to Ashes57’s practice, starting with the time spent working with Shepard Fairey in his Los Angeles design studio. Her photography documenting numerous Obey exhibitions and street art projects has been included in publications such as Arkitip and Supply and Demand - The Art of Shephard Fairey and has also been displayed at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Street Treasures, a book of street art photography compiled over several years spent travelling the globe, was published in 2012.

From the flyers and posters she produced for the legendary Dub War parties in New York to artwork for the DMZ, Swamp 81 and Hyperdub labels, to name just a few, her illustration and design work has been the visual foil to many of the most exciting moments in electronic music of recent years. Other notable musical collaborations include the artwork for the Wu-Tang Clan's 2009 album, Enter the Dubstep, and the videos for three DJ Rashad tracks released on Teklife and Hyperdub.

Alongside all these other projects, Ashes57 has kept up a prolific output of her own artwork, which has been exhibited in more than 70 galleries all over Europe and North America.
