Taking his inspiration from the storied US freight train, London’s Sweet Toof’s Derailed rolls into Pandemic Gallery this Friday night for his second New York solo show. Spanning the spectrum from traditional oil paintings on canvas to sculptural installations with salvaged train sets, the artist has transformed the gallery into a maniacally toothy and phantasmagorical homage to boxcar culture. Come out, you won’t be disappointed.

Last spring London’s Sweet Toof came through New York just long enough to paint a few roof tops & murals and to charm just about everyone and anyone who he met. This spring he’s back again, with the promise of more painting, more charming, and his first New York solo exhibition at the Bushwick gallery Factory Fresh.

Dark Horse, which opens this Friday, will showcase Sweet Toof’s more classical painting chops in works heavily influenced by the Vanitas paintings of sixteenth century Europe, Mexican Day of the Dead iconography, Subway Art, and the underground comics of Vaughn Bodé. All made complete, of course, with plenty of his signature ‘gummy chompers’!
