Art of Life Pop-up Street Art Gallery in Shoreditch

Art of Life, a group of Dutch pot orchid growers, has put together an exhibition of orchid inspired art to raise awareness about the versatility of the plant.  The exhibition will last for just over ten days, and feature a free orchid give-away on Friday 21st

"The photo realistic exhibition will be available to view on the exterior walls of the Village Underground, Shoreditch, East London from Wednesday 12th to Sunday 23rd December 2012 and on Friday 21st December we will be giving away Orchids at the site to share the Christmas spirit!
The exhibition will comprise of a collection of four pieces of original artwork by graffiti collective 'Graffiti Kings' featuring "breakthrough" style art, whereby each piece will look as if it has been punched through the wall to expose the inside of the building; to reveal a series of windows into a Christmas home scene dressed with an array of pot orchids.
'Graffiti Kings' are one of London’s most well-known urban street art groups. Pioneers of the London Graffiti scene, the collective now have an international following thanks to their unique fusion of individual styles and efforts to promote graffiti as a form of fine art, moving away from its past connections with vandalism.
The street orchid exhibition forms part of an on-going awareness campaign by Art of Life, who believe that the 25,000 species of orchid are all unique and pieces of art in their own right, with their diverse shapes, colours and patterns.  As part of the exhibition, the passing spectators will be given the opportunity to win a luxury weekend in Amsterdam, a visit to a Dutch orchid grower."
