The Opening reception of SHOCK AND AWE, A solo show by Joe Ledbetter

Joe Ledbetter's first U.K exhibition, "SHOCK AND AWE!" opened last Saturday evening the 10th of October in Notting Hill. The evening welcomed a large crowd of dedicated fans and some newcomers to the gallery. Joe Ledbetter was in attendance and spent most of the evening signing toys, books, prints, and making friends with a gallery full of londoners with large cheeky grins. The exhibition was an over all great success and we are really proud to have had some a great artist show with us here at London Miles.
Follow the rest of Joe's AMALGAMATION TOUR 2009 on his blog, his next stop is Amsterdam!

Shock and Awe will be on display until the end of October, so if you missed the opening reception then make sure you stop by before it closes to catch this great exhibition of Joes work.
For more information, please contact us here at London Miles Gallery.

A line starts to form around 4pm. Excited fans fill the street on a lovely Saturday afternoon.

A very busy night.

Joe signing the night away to happy fans.

This October, cartoon artist and toy designer Joe Ledbetter (Los Angeles, USA) will take his act on the road and present 5 art shows in 5 different cities across Europe, first stop London Miles Gallery. In the spirit of a touring rock band, Ledbetter will travel from city to city (London, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, and Istanbul) presenting separate shows that will feature new paintings, toy releases, and book signings. While each exhibition will showcase a different theme, the work is meant to show international commonalities through current events and humour.

London Miles Gallery is proud to host the launch event of the tour and Joe Ledbetter’s first European solo exhibition. Inspired by Rock and Roll and 80’s travelling rock bands , “Shock & Awe” opens on October 10th and will be on display until November 10th.

In addition to more than 15 original paintings, there will be the European exclusive “Terror and Magnus” vinyl toy releases, print releases, a book signing, and a meet and greet with Joe.

About Joe Ledbetter:

Influenced by classic animation, graphic design, and daily life, Joe Ledbetter's art is... well... a lot of things. Light-hearted in its approach, he often combines cute and cuddly creatures with unfortunate — albeit humorous — situations. With a lean on the subversive and absurd, these scenarios are all too familiar, questioning our tendency of taking life (and ourselves) too seriously.

While working as a graphic apparel artist for three years, Ledbetter got involved in the LA underground art scene, beginning with group shows like Cannibal Flower. By the summer of 2004, he had honed his trademark visual style of emblematic line-work, vibrant colours, and endearing characters to the point of quitting his day job. His incredible cast of creatures have since been emblazoned on over 100 designer vinyl toys, as well as apparel and lifestyle brands, the world over.
