Vermin, Room 101 @ The Emporium, Stokes Croft

14 Oct

Pop into the Emporium on Stokes Croft to get a peek at the 101 oil paintings on display from graff artist Vermin (aka Dale Marshall). The exhibition title is a definitive theme: 101 days, 101 paintings, £101 each. Looking around the gallery at the dark slashes and gashes that cut into the canvases like wounds, you can’t help wondering if the confinement of an art studio for 101 days  was the artist’s very own room 101. Maybe that’s the point?
