Gaia - Show of Hands @ Nelly Duff Gallery, London

To quote Nelly Duff  'Gaia is a young American street artist, whose work shows a sophistication far beyond his years. Most recently Gaia introduced ‘Open Walls, Baltimore’, a public project, during which reknowned street artists came together to produce a series of mural artworks, amid the desolation of the artists’s hometown- blighted by a large concentration of derelic buildings, and uninhabitable homes. 
Gaia often works on a huge scale to depict his subjects, yet always manages to capture great depth of emotion via the delicate tracery of his lino-cut pieces.'

More on his work here


There is a great mural outside the gallery. You can spot Gaia's self portrait on the right hand-side. 

This is a portrait of Russian Architect Lubetkin

Here are more linocut prints inside the gallery...
I found a great post by Hookedblog explaining the process of these ink prints

And the beautiful 'Marlow' piece ...
