An Exclusive Look Inside Blondey McCoy's "Stella Populis" Exhibition

The British talent’s first show in London.

Before doors open to the public on June 7, Blondey McCoy gives us an exclusive look at his first solo exhibition called “Stella Populis” at London’s Ronchini Gallery.

The 22-year-old polyhypenate presents multifaceted artworks spanning photography, digital illustration, installation, and studies. These works touch on themes of pop culture, celebrity, mental illness, and modern-day religion. Highlights include a diptych entitled Queen Di. II produced using UV print on mirrored aludibond, a new series of mirrored and acrylic crosses, and a life-sized crucifee sculpture of Plato inspired by Sal Mineo’s character in Rebel Without a Cause.

To further celebrate the show, Blondey will release a limited edition book entitled Stella Populis – POP WILL EAT ITSELF and six gold trimmed plates that spotlight his 25 part series called Epiphanies. For the project, portraits of celebrities including Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Emma Watson are observed on varying English breakfasts. The set of six plates will be available in an edition of ten on Blondey’s website and Ronchini Gallery this Friday at 11 A.M. London time.

Get a closer look above and then head over to Ronchini Gallery’s website for further exhibition details. “Stella Populis” will run through August 31.
