TEETH ARE THE ONLY BONES THAT SHOW //// ATHI-PATRA RUGA EXHIBITION OPENING



























Sorry skats, i've been partying the whole night celebrating Athi's opening, it is now quarter to eight in the morning, i can't think for shit. So ja, can't write much, must sleep. Enjoy the pics so long, I'll do a write-up later. Goodnight.

IT'S DELISHUZ TO BE AMBISHUZ ///UPDATE ON THE EXHIBITION

Sorry for the delay skat, it's taken me that long to recover from the Wednesday night party, plus i've been living under threat of spousal abuse so best to update this post for my own safety. I was so busy downing the bubbly on the night of the actual exhibition that i didn't bother to take pics of the actual art, so i got up early on Saturday morning and went to the gallery to get some close ups which i've now included in the above pics. I wish i could go back to the actual night because i took so many pics of so many funky ducks but they came out really kak, the pitfalls of amateur photography i guess. It's probably time to invest in that photography course. Now Skattie, i am quite obviously very biased when it comes to Athi's work and i think the show was amazing, a giant leap from his previous show and don't get me wrong the last one was brilliant. Don't take make my word for it though, the work will be up for the whole month. You can also visit the Whatiftheworld gallery website for more info and pics. If you looking for more critical info and writing on Athi-Patra Ruga, google him skattie.
