Woohooo! It's time for the 4th annual BLAB! Show.

The exhibition will open tonight and is a live sneak preview of the forthcoming issue of BLAB! featuring artworks from everyone's favourite comicspopsurrealismneofineart anthology.

One of the most eye-catching works on display is beyond doubt Marc Burckhardt's Well-Matched Lovers (c.f. image above / detail below) - a tongue-in-cheek piece inspired by the Renaissance tradition of the Ill-Matched Lovers. Read more about its background over at Marc's fascinating blog.

It looks like many artists will be present at the reception tonight so make sure to peek in to meet and greet some of the inspiring and talented artists who make BLAB! such an inimitable publication.
