the 6th of June is looking like a good one for illustration and design exhibitions. Shows at Beach London, Kemistry and this, at KK Outlet:
Illustrator Mr Bingo was drunk late one night in his studio and tweeted, “I will send a postcard with an offensive message on to the first person who replies to this tweet". Within the first minute over 50 people replied, desperate to receive some hateful post.
Over the last twelve months Bingo has posted out artistic abuse to more than 550 people. Each well-crafted piece of slander comes accompanied with an original illustration. They’re insults you wouldn’t dare to utter to your worst enemy in person, but somehow on the back of a vintage postcard, alongside one of Bingo’s masterful illustrations they’re weirdly charming and utterly hilarious.
The Hate Mail exhibition at KK Outlet will showcase 220 postcards from Mr Bingo’s now extensive archive. For the first 60 people through the door of our private view on Thursday 6th June, there’ll be the opportunity to have their very own personalized piece of Hate Mail.
