Pablo Delgado – Clean Inn

Clean Inn by Pablo Delgado

It took us a while to organize, but finally Pablo Delgado opened his ‘Clean Inn’ show here in Stockholm. The vernissage took place at Konstart Gallery on Thurs 10th October 2013. A fantastic turnout warmly welcomed Pablo to Stockholm and the installation/art show intrigued and amused the visitors.

The Mexican, known for his miniature paste up scenes has evolved into a cult figure and one of Londons best known street artists. His work emerged in 2011, consisting of tiny doorways pasted up on to the streets of Whitechapel, his East London base. He soon began expanding into more detailed scenes, people, animals, random objects - a man walking a giraffe, Benedictine monks, women in burqas carrying groceries, prostitutes, matadors, circus artists, waiters....all of which cast a painted shadow onto the nearby pavement.

The ‘Clean Inn’ exhibition invites viewers to check in to Pablos hotel room, including beds, toilets, sinks and the hotel television, all created in the artists unique style, inviting guests to take part and experience the art. A whole range of art was available for purchase including sealed ‘reception mail’ envelopes (art inside) , a range of capsules, framed artworks through to installation pieces… toilet rolls included. Not forgetting our ‘edition’ screen print we created for the show with Pablo, an edition of 30 and a chance of a few artist proofs if you’re quick!
This was our first Scarlett Gallery ‘Satellite’ show, so we would like to thank Jessica and Mika at Konstart for an inspiring collaboration.
