About Kallenbach Gallery: The gallery - directed by Nanna Kassenaar - operates from an interest and a passion for movements usually labeled as underground, lowbrow and urban art. At the same time, the gallery constantly keeps an eye out for new movements and emerging forms of contemporary art. We aim to introduce the public to these exciting and innovative artists in an open and approachable way.
About SIT: The work of Dutch artist, SIT, is inevitably characterized by a feeling of discomfort: his paintings and sculptures show the moment when beauty loses its raison díÍtre, and presents its darkest side. Behind his figurative images lies a disturbing analysis of our times. SIT demonstrates artificial characters, human beings and animals that remind us of the banality of everyday life, of our obsession with appearance, looks and materialism. These characters are the victims of our visual and fast society, the technology of the visible - here human vanity stands in the way of a truly ethical life.
By using black and white, SIT creates sober and melancholic images, as if man - while endlessly believing in progression - has lost something on the way. But on the other hand, he displays a maximum of effects: the fabrics, textures and costumes look sensual and seductive, the settings are theatrical and grotesque. This ambiguity - between the temptation of beauty and our constant urge to abuse her - is the driving force behind SIT's work.

About The London Police: The London Police started in 1998 when big English geezers headed to Amsterdam to rejuvenate the visually disappointing streets of the drug capital of the world.
The motive was to combine traveling and making art to create an amazing way of life not seen since the days of King Solomon. From 2002 onward, TLP started sending missionaries into all corners of the globe. Known for their iconic LADS characters and precision marking, TLPhave recently celebrated 10 strong years in the art world and their work has graced streetsand galleries in 35 countries during this time.
London policemen have come and gone but founding members are still known to walk the streets of every city in the world spreading love with pens and stickers.
The current duo have managed to form a partnership more cohesive than Han Solo and Chewbacca in Star Wars and are continuing to produce slick artwork that is tighter than abutlers cuff. Never be scared, don't be a hero and let the good times roll.
