We first came across Roy's People at his excellent solo show last year; his mix of delicate craftsmanship and humour won us over immediately, and the affordability of the pieces meant we even bought two. Roy is now returning with a set of new works — some sticking with his original style, others featuring a new superhero twist.
Superheroes continue to be the rage in Hollywood movies, and in his new show Roy brings out the inner heroes of his miniature people, featuring well known characters such as Catwoman, Spider-Man and Batman. Like much of Roy's art, there's an uplifting message: this one is about heroism in everyday acts by normal people who don't wear capes.
There are still plenty of works in Roy's original style, too — one poor person is crushed under a high heel, while a couple uses a beer bottle cap as an umbrella.
Look out for the chance to snag a free miniature artwork: once the show has been open for a week, some of the tiny heroes will be placed on the streets of east London, with clues posted to help you find them. Tread carefully.
Little Heroes: Roy's People is on at Curious Duke, 173 Whitecross St, EC1Y 8JT 17 April-9 May. Entrance is free. To join in on the hunt for a free miniature sculpture, follow @CuriousDuke and @RoysPeople2013 on Twitter.
