Billy Childish Gets Poetic This Saturday

Billy Childish Gets Poetic This Saturday

Singer, artist and poet Billy Childish will be making an appearance at The Aquarium art gallery in London this Saturday as a finale to his latest exhibition of paintings, "Against England," that has been running for the past month.

Known for his explicit art, Childish's "Against England" is a series of new paintings predominantly featuring portraits of himself and his wife amongst which the severed hand of a Nazi Messerschmitt pilot molests an English schoolgirl’s naked knee.

He is also a prolific writer, having written over 40 books, and will be reading from his poetry and performing a couple of songs 'amongst the paintings.'

The event is free, and there will be free green tea for while you listen.
