BLXK LILY and AIDA Shoreditch present:
David Wallace Shoots - ELEVATE
An exhibition of work by photographer David Wallace
Launch Night: Thursday 3rd November 2016
6.30pm - 10pm
Less than two years after he first picked up a camera, David Wallace has built an inimitable style and a dedicated following - holding court amongst an inspiring new generation of digital photographers.
Recognised around the world for his arresting and impossible #welevitate shots - his own brand of photography magic - and his work with pro BMXer Ryan Taylor, commissions for (among others) Adidas, Nike, Canon, Yeezy and Dr Martens have quickly followed, with features on HYPEBEAST and numerous appearances in Highsnobiety’s Ten Top Sneaker Photos.
The image that began a movement? A simple snapshot he took of some party poppers at a New Year’s Eve party. The dark, dynamic style of David’s work is now instantly recognisable to his thousands of fans, and has inspired continuous debate over the techniques he uses. He remains calmly, amusedly adamant: no Photoshop.
ELEVATE is the premier exhibition of David’s work, and the first chance to see his unique imagery come to life off the screen.
With music curated by BLXK LILY, this will be an immersive experience celebrating the work of one of the country’s most exciting new photography talents, all within the beautiful setting of East London concept store AIDA Shoreditch.
The first twenty guests will receive a limited edition commemorative print, signed by David Wallace.
Music - BLXK LILY DJs (LRO/ASI)
Prints available to purchase on the night - exhibition runs throughout November at AIDA Shoreditch.
