Blandford Square

The Sage Gateshead’s artist in residence Toby Heaps, internationally renowned for outdoor urban artwork, brought his work indoors for the Altered Space Fringe Event ‘The Monster Club’. The white walls of the gallery were transformed into Heaps’ signature urban landscapes, peopled by his twisted, darkly comic characters.

Artist Statement

Heaps has worked with spray paint media for over 20 years, working with such prolific art crews as TransPennine Nomads (TPN) in Yorkshire and Newcastle’s much-loved Ghetto Method Crew (GMC). He has a broad portfolio of private and public commissions over a long urban art career spanning almost 30 years, ranging from Kia car adverts, Virgin Media murals and the 2012 Cannes Award-winning Guardian newspaper advert ‘The Three Little Pigs.’
