Stolen Space Gallery Presents: Mysterious Al “The Doomsday Papers” (London, UK)

Mysterious Al
‘The Doomsday Papers’
By Mysterious Al
04.03.11 – 27.03.11
A study of the Gods, monsters and legends of the past and present.

“According to Mayan prophecy and the Doomsday calendar, the world will end in 2012. Geomagnetic reversal, asteroid strike or supernova; at least we’ll miss the bloody Olympics”

One of the first generation of Street-artists; Mysterious Al gained international notoriety alongside D*face for his part in the infamous ‘Finders Keepers’ illegal art events.
In a career spanning almost a decade, Mysterious Al has shown in group exhibitions globally, as well as working with leading brands such as Adidas, Eastpak, Volvo, Orange and Yahoo.

Stolenspace is thrilled to present ‘The Doomsday Papers’; a selection of works in mixed media including wood, paint, newspaper, magazines, torn Bible pages and installation.

“As we prepare to enter what is being described as a new cycle of civilisation, I’ve become increasingly interested in different cultures and their beliefs, as well as my own thoughts and fears on mortality and fate. History is constantly being written… From the wonderfully elaborate depictions of Mayan Gods to mass-market celebrities, cult fiction and present-day witchcraft. What happens if all these humanities mix together? If these worlds collide?”

‘The Doomsday papers’ is Mysterious Al’s eagerly-awaited debut solo show. A brand new body of work loosely surrounding Mesoamerican Gods, the doomsday calendar, Drum & Bass, demonic intervention, Graffiti culture, Wicca and the Occult.
