Separated for far too long, the three brothers with silly nicknames, Cream, 2Shy and So Me, are finally reunited in, however ironic it may seem, their father’s city of birth, Brussels.
The story goes that on his deathbed, their father told each of them about one part of a map that leads to Barbarossa’s treasure. He then swallowed the map and died. This meant that only the 3 of them TOGETHER could find the mythical treasure.
The bad boys expect to see you at Alice Gallery to admire the works born from their fruitful union. They worked the old-school way, a bit like Disney from back in the days. The tall one traces the contours, the skinny one colours inside the lines and the little one is in charge of the framing. It’s a rare synergy in our time, but one that transpires a sense of both love and pain with every stroke of the crayon Triple Trouble is the unexpected reunion of three kids with big hearts.

A little about the artists
TRIPLE TROUBLE is the title of the new exhibition by the artists 2shy, Cream & So Me. It is hard to categorize these three fellows as they are as much illustrators, as they are Dj’s, graffiti artists, movie directors… They mix ‘genres’, supports, personal work and commercial work. If they are not yet recognized by the art institutions, it is because their line of work goes beyond those boundaries. If we think about the video clips that So Me realized for the French electro rock group JUSTICE or for the American rap singer Kanye West, viewed by millions on the internet alone, then we start to realize the importance of these hybrid artists on our culture.
Just like today’s banking system, the art world needs to re-think its values and references. Post modernity, that’s what it is!! No time for long speeches, what we need is Action! The art world has to come out of its secret garden and throw a new look at this globalized culture.
Or, is it the contrary? A globalized culture that this new generation of artists is trying to take over, just like the previous generation did with the previous one….
Whatever it may be, Triple Trouble is fresh, exciting and straight in your face.
