 Backwoods Gallery is proud to announce its debut show by Meggs – ‘King for a Day’.

In his third Melbourne solo show (following his 2009 solo show in LA), Meggs continues to evoke strong themes of duality throughout his work.‘King for a Day’ is a new collection of paintings on wood and canvas, screenprints and installations, exploring personal duality, mortality and society’s obsession with fast-track fame and celebrity status.
‘King for a Day’ references the idea that contemporary media and social networking creates accelerated fame and the pifalls that come with celebrity resposibility and attention. The exhibition features works that energetically depict both the life & iminent death of those craving for power, wealth and fame.

Meggs began his career in street art and since developing his work for the gallery environment has garnered much international recognition. In 2009 Meggs exhibited a solo show in LA and has previously exhibited works in LA, London, Tokyo and Singapore. Early 2011 will see his first UK solo show with ZeroCool Gallery in London.

Please join us for the opening reception of ‘King for a Day’ by Meggs on Friday 25th June 2010, from 6pm.
