When we think of children stories, two entirely different kinds of tale come to mind. Disney publishes beautiful tales with kind fairies who grant wishes and sprinkle fairy dust. These stories stem from the Victorian period, an era when the Grimm brothers’ tales were sanitised.
Tales by the Grimm brothers or Hans Christian Andersen where the storyline is dark, gruesome, a little bloodthirsty, and the fairies are naughty little bastards who might attempt to steal your children are more riveting. Graffik Gallery finds the latter so compelling that it has organised the D.I.Z.N.I. exhibition.
D.I.Z.N.I. features new interpretations by Alec Monopoly, Ron English, Tee Wat, Speedy Graphito, Andy Seize, Jason Busk, Dotmaster, Dom Pattinson, Nuno Raminhos and Special Guests…
Our D.I.Z.N.I. will be looking to be re-homed and need a caring foster family who will help them live happily ever after.
D.I.Z.N.I. 17 May – 3 June 2012 Daily 11am to 6pm
