November 03, 2022 to November 27, 2022

We all do things that we are totally ashamed of. In this era of cancel culture, we live in constant fear of getting judged or busted for a crime committed in a past life. What were your mistakes? Whether it’s what we do on OnlyFans or the inertia and procrastination that holds us back in life, perhaps now is the time to embrace our ‘failings’ and celebrate them!

Dave Buonaguidi AKA Real Hackney Dave is almost into his third year as a full-time artist and is more productive than ever.

‘HIGH CRIMES & DIRTY HABITS’ will be Dave’s third solo show with BSMT. This new collection features unique, one-off pieces combining found, textured materials with his trademark bright pink and 3D lettering.

“In my print work I love working with found ephemera and objects like maps and love letters and deactivated hand grenades and it’s the same with my street art work, using phrases and words that I have remembered and overheard from the past and brought them to life in 3D. Coming from the world of advertising where everything I did had to make sense, I now love to create pieces that don’t make sense but create a level of intrigue and I find that really interesting and powerful. The concept behind High Crimes & Dirty Habits was to explore the levels of ‘crimes and misdemeanours’ that we all experience on a daily basis, from procrastination to attempted murder, and create a reaction, I want people to see the pieces and be inspired or challenged, to feel guilty or slightly uncomfortable but most importantly to have a laugh.”- Dave Buonaguidi

‘HIGH CRIMES & DIRTY HABITS’ opens with a private view on November 3rd, 6pm – 9 pm, with the show running until November 27th. Beer for the opening night will be sponsored by our good friends DUVEL (
