stikman: Common Thread

  • LMNL Gallery 1526 Frankford Ave, 1st Floor Philadelphia, PA USA (map)


Common Thread, a solo exhibition from the elusive street artist stikman, opens on March 6th at LMNL Gallery.

If you’ve been in Philadelphia long enough, or Boston, or New York, or Chicago, or Los Angeles, or Toronto, or any of a hundred small towns across the United States and Canada, you might know stikman. You just might not know that you know him. One of the most elusive and prolific street artists in America, one of the last truly anonymous street artists, stikman has been producing street art for over 20 years.

For months, stikman has been experimenting with the latest evolution to his ubiquitous character, and he has developed what he calls “thread paintings” for the way the paint looks like masses of thread thrown on the ground or stretched out like webbing. With Common Thread, stikman will be showing this new body of work for the first time.

Common Thread will also feature a digital installation of a new series of spy-cam-like photographs from stikman. The installation will also highlight how street art, and stikman’s work in particular, is simultaneously always different and always the same.

Common Thread opens at LMNL Gallery on March 6th with a First Friday launch from 6-9pm. The exhibition will remain on view through March 27th by appointment.

LMNL Gallery is located at 1526 Frankford Ave in Philadelphia, PA.
