The UK’s vibrant art scene sees a new player this month with the recent opening of Flood Gallery in London. The rich cultural history of the city, combined with its status as the epicenter for the contemporary international street art scene, and the inclusion of the print-focused space further cements the town’s status as an art destination. For their debut show, American artists Kevin Tong and John Vogl have brought two new bodies of work, ‘Unfamiliar Objects’ and ‘The Greenwich History and Heritage Collection,’ respectively. The two shows themselves differ greatly, Vogl’s historical survey on the surrounding areas of London contrast with Tong’s more methodical look at forgotten consumer products, however it is the artist’s command of the serigraph process and utterly unique voices in the modern silk screen movement that make the show an affordable and compelling exhibit.
