An new exhibition by Remi Rough at Scream London

8th October - 3rd November 2015

and Graffiti art. Which in practice and theory they

become ever present. This amalgamation yields a new

type of modernist painting, one that reflects his passion

for the aforementioned but also his desire to re-imagine

it all for todays world.”
