Mitchy Bwoy, the man behind the brand of dance duo Chase & Status, is coming to Birmingham in April to exhibit a selection of new and old work. Opening on 1st April, Mitchy’s exhibition will reside at The Sauce Gallery, Custard Factory until the end of May.

Following on from the hugely successful Swifty Pop Shop, which opened in December 2009, Punch Records has secured a major scoop bringing Mitchy Bwoy to the city and showcasing his famous work. From album covers and illustrations, to famous fonts and fashion designs, fans will be able to see and purchase a range of prints, one-offs and originals.

Synonymous with new music and club culture, London-based Mitchy Bwoy has worked with some of the best names in the industry. From his studio, the ‘post-graff’ artist has designed album covers and branding for the likes of Chase & Status, Ziggy Marley, Nitin Sawhney and Amp Fiddler.

He has also made a name from himself in illustration, fashion and video production. As well as working on a number of special projects, including the Blak Twang/We Love You album project with Banksy, Bacardi brand development with Mode 2, and live art project 55 DSL.

Ammo Talwar, Director of Punch Records said:
“After the success of the Swifty shop we knew there was high demand for pioneering graffiti artists and designers to bring their work to the city. Mitchy is one of the best in the business, not only designing for some amazing artists but also creating fantastic visual representations of today’s society and culture”.

“We’re really excited about bringing Mitchy to Birmingham and can’t wait to see his work in the gallery. He’ll only have a few originals, so die hard fans need to make sure they get down early.”
