Shuby is an international artist who has recently shown at the Venice Bienalle, has done projects in Berlin and Barcelona and has a busy exhibition schedule recently showing at Scream Gallery in London, a week takeover at Hastings' Stade Hall for Coastal Currents art festival and upcoming street art trips to New York, Paris, Cincinnati and Reykjavik. For Freize Art week she is planning to show her most ambition sculpture yet – a 15m inflatable bunny rabbit!
Shuby started as a street artist using paste ups in 2006. Her early posters featured a lady holding a big banana, inspired by the 1943 Busby Berkeley musical by 'The Gang's All Here', in which rows of ladies wave comedy bananas in the air. Since then Shuby has used the banana as one of her motifs throughout her studio work and on the street, and it has become a naughty but innocent calling card, instantly recognizable and intrinsically humorous.
Shuby has collaborated with Daisy and Beany on interior and exterior Designs a lot of our locations including the vaults at Seymour Street, our shipping container on the South Bank and her biggest large scale commissions to date at Regents place and Broadgate Circle.
Our mutual love of all things bananas has led to the production of a range of colourful deck chairs in which you can enjoy a coffee in a Your Banana Needs You limited edition cup.
