Preview: The London Police at StolenSpace Gallery

Always tongue-in-cheek, Amsterdam-based duo The London Police will debut their solo show, "It's All Fun & Games Until Someone Gets Hurt" at London's street art hub, StolenSpace Gallery. Originally from England, the artists moved to Amsterdam 11 years ago and, since then, have developed an iconic character they simply refer to as the "Lad." Their work is marked by a strong sense of design and stronger doses of silliness. The cartoonish "Lads" invade otherwise realistically-rendered scenes, not only adding a sense of playfulness but also unifying the body of work. Take a look at some of the works in the upcoming show after the jump and see "It's All Fun & Games Until Someone Gets Hurt" at StolenSpace May 10 - May 26.
