Hidden down a side street, behind a beautifully spray painted set of bolted gates sits 5th Base gallery. Back for their second show at the gallery, New Rule collective presents ‘Horror Show’, an illustrated tribute to Classic & B-Movie Horror Cinema. Featuring work from 30 internationally renowned illustrators, the show opened (appropriately) on Halloween and will be on until the 5th November when prints of the work will go on sale on the website. All prints will be limited editions of 50 in either giclée or screen prints, and once sold will not be printed again, so grab one while you can!
