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.
