International cult cartoonists and animators Modern Toss are bringing their unique brand of precision swearing and stylishly cak-handed drawing to a Shoreditch gallery this summer for an unmissable, ground-breaking, two-week exhibition. The scurrilously inventive satirists behind Mr Tourette and the Drive-by Abuser invite you along to witness their incredible range of top notch, limited edition prints, interactive art pieces and assorted, hilarious paraphernalia from the Toss cabinet of shit-naks. This is London’s first ever proper celebration of Modern Toss artwork so we can expect some special treats – including a three ton marble fly; two eggs in a cage fighting over a pin; a talking, stuffed bird moaning about sitting on a twig and Mr Tourette’s incisive summing up of the international banking crisis.

They claim they will be concentrating on “addressing contemporary themes” with this exhibition, so get yourself down there and check out too their ‘Periodic Table Of Swearing’, a drop-in art therapy session in the form of a 200metre long communal cartoon, some live poetry reading from the Drive-by Abuser, a selection of superb ‘Space Argument’ prints and some highly collectible dirty pictures, hand-stitched in wool by enthusiastic mature ladies.

Interview with the tossers here.

Prices for limited edition letterpress and silkscreen prints range from £30 – £200.
