About the event


Ben, Dan and Esme met as slackers working in shitty cubicles, at a shitty job, for shitty money. It was shitty. Since then however, through their camaraderie, a shared love of pubs, fish and chips, stitch, paint and scratch all the daft things that entered their minds.

Hero of Switzerland is the vulgar, bleary- eyed but rather pretty creature that emerged. With too solo exhibitions under their loosened belts; 'Bad Taste' at the Sassoon Gallery and 'Crime and Punishment' at The Old Police Station, plus their two blogs 'Horse With Hands Riding A Bike' and their self- titled effort with its collections of Tops Tips from ladies weeklies, you would've thought they'd be cosmetically- getting together and drawing in the things that make them laugh. They hope they make you laugh too.
