Scott Campbell's London show highlights his latest work which explores iconic American Culture.

Scott Campbell’s needlework adorns celebrity skin and his tattoo appointments require a 3-month waiting period. His designs have attracted attention from a wide range of areas, awarding him with various commissions from Maserati to ZZ Top. Such high demand led Campbell to open the creative shop Mama Tried Inc, offering advertising, branding and marketing services from an enterprise rooted in youth culture

His debut London show ‘Always Almost There’ repositions Campbell as an artist. From iconic religious imagery to gangster rap slogans, Campbell’s subject matter is rooted in American culture. His choice of medium for the latest collection reminds us where the root of every major institution lies – designs are handcrafted from one hundred single dollar bills. The intricacies of each piece could be mistaken for CAD with each layer painstakingly laser cut and individually arranged.

The obvious cost of each piece is testament to the value of modern art– even during a recession scorched cash will sell for thousands.

Always Almost There is on until October 30th at the Lazarides Gallery, Greek Street, Soho.
