Guerilla artist Karma Khazi will bring his much anticipated new exhibition, Sh!t Show, a celebration of London’s toilet graffiti, to Shoreditch between 25th and 28th January, offering free entry to the public.

The artist will take over the space at 133 Bethnal Green Road, in the graffiti hotspot of Shoreditch, for four days (including a VIP private view on 25th January) to showcase his ambitious collection of nearly 100 pieces inspired by the messages he found during a 250-pub crawl.

The centrepiece of the show will be a single, black door with 63 pieces of graffiti, all pulled from different toilet cubicles and each with their own unique view of the world.

Other pieces in the show include 63 individual canvases reflecting the graffiti’s messages, fibreglass pub signs, and other sculptures and art, bringing the collection to close to 100 pieces in total.

The show will extend beyond physical art; music created at Courtyard Studios (Radiohead, Gaz Coombes, The Stranglers) and mixed at the legendary Abbey Road will soundtrack the exhibition, and a short film by double-BAFTA-winning filmmaker Lee Phillips sheds light on the work and its origins.

The artist will welcome the public for free from 26th to 28th January, even inviting them to create their own contributions to the show, with special areas set aside for guests to add their own anonymous messages, drawings, and slogans, which will then form part of the collection.
