The official blog for everything relating to the former Strychnin Crew & Urban Nation
Starting 2010 with a celebration of 7 years of Strychnin Gallery, “7 Year Itch” brought together over 60 of our favourite artists. Despite the persistant snow in Berlin, lots of visitors made it to the opening. Everyone was happy to get into the warmth of the gallery, and enjoy the great artwork (and a slice of birthday cake!)

With a show of this size, we had to extend the exhibition in to the hallway!
Along with a large number of Strychnin’s regular artists, it was great to show new works from Scott Radke, Suzzan Blac, Chris Peters, Tim Conlon and Mike Bartek. It was also the first time for visitors to see pieces by Daniel Elson, Damon Soule and William McDermid in a Strychnin show.
The back room housed some of Strychnin’s permanent collection, including many of the remaining pieces from the “Magistrates” and “X-Mas Luau” shows.
