Blondey McCoy's 'Stella Populis' Exhibition

Blondey McCoy's 'Stella Populis' Exhibition
Opening today 7 June is Blondey McCoy's exhibition, 'Stella Populis.' Hypebeast got an exclusive look at his first solo exhibition ahead of the opening at London’s Ronchini Gallery.


Most will know Blondey McCoy as that Palace guy. But he's so much more...

He got his start as a professional skater and model for Palace Skateboard, before going on to start his own brand Thames London, as well as creating some extremely interesting art. At only 22, there's no denying the man's multifaceted talent.  



The exhibition features photography, digital illustration, installation, as well as studies. The works touch on themes of pop culture, celebrity, mental illness, and modern-day religion. Highlights include a diptych entitled Queen Di. II produced using UV print on mirrored alu-dibond, a new series of mirrored and acrylic crosses, and a life-sized crucifix sculpture of Plato inspired by Sal Mineo’s character in Rebel Without a Cause.



To further celebrate the show, Blondey will release a limited edition book entitled Stella Populis – POP WILL EAT ITSELF and six gold trimmed plates that spotlight his 25 part series called Epiphanies. WIthin the book, you'll find portraits of celebrities including Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Emma Watson are observed on varying English breakfasts. Interesting. The set of six plates will be available in an edition of ten on Blondey’s website and Ronchini Gallery this Friday at 12 PM. SA time.


Check out the photos of the exhibition and definitely pop-in if you find yourself in London from today until 31 August.
