With over 9 million followers on Facebook, 4.5 million on Instagram, and some of the world’s biggest comedians (Seth Rogen, Ryan Reynolds, Jack Black) ranked among his fans, no one is a bigger name in online comedy than Arron Crascall right now. Known for hilarious content that spoofs viral videos and good-naturedly pranks the general public, Crascall is fast becoming a household name. Not content with taking the social media world by storm, Crascall has turned his hand to art and chose Brighton’s Enter Gallery as the location of his first solo UK art show. ‘Since 16’ – so named as he has wanted to have his own art show since he turned 16 – was eagerly anticipated by Crascall fans, who were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet him in person at the show.
Crascall uses his art as a stress relieving outlet whenever the pressures of catering to such an enormous audience get too much. His colourful and chaotic art depicts pop culture icons, like the Queen and Winston Churchill, surrounded by swathes of colour and text.
The private view for ‘Since 16’ took place at Enter Gallery on Bond Street, Brighton between 6-8pm on Friday 15th July 2022 and was on view at the gallery over the following weekend.
‘Since 16’ featured a series of original paintings, and a limited-edition artwork named, ‘Air Max Ballet’, the defining image of the show. This limited edition is a timed release, which
means the size of the edition will be determined by the amount of people who buy the print between 9am on Friday July 15th and midnight on Sunday 24th July 2022. The original paintings went on sale at 9am on Friday July 15th, and many had sold before the evening event had even begun.
More information about future events and Crascall’s work can be found on Enter Gallery’s website.
