After a successful event in July 2008, Temwa is back with: ‘Art for Africa’ Street Art Auction.

Featuring some of Bristol’s world-renowned street artists, this exciting event will raise money for Temwa’s sustainable community-based projects in Malawi, Africa…

And if that wasn’t enough, revellers will also be entertained by classic soul, funk and hiphop from the Monster Piece DJs and The Disco Two.
Entry is free and raffle tickets cost just £1.00 each….
All art works has been donated and it is only through the generosity of our supporting artists that we are able to organise what will be an exceptional evening. Remember, 100% of proceeds raised will go directly to Temwa.

A WORD FROM CLEAN

April 9, 2009

SARAH COCKINGS AND ALICE HODGE (aka CLEAN) WOULD LIKE TO CLEAN A FEW THINGS UP!

Sorry your homework has lead you up the garden path ….. We are not associated with the group THE CLEAN COLLECTIVE who caused the damage to Banksy’s work.

The confusion has arisen from the ‘Appropriate Media’ website being registered to The Clean Collective….

We (Alice Hodge and Sarah Cockings) are a collective called simply …. ‘CLEAN’

Thank you for taking such an interest in our work however we are not in anyway connected to the self proclaimed culprits ‘Appropriate Media’.

MILD MILD WEST DEFACED

April 7, 2009

MILD MILD WEST DEFACEMENT
“Over the last 24 hours a huge storm has blown up in Bristol over the (attempted) defacing of Banksy’s infamous ‘Mild Mild West’ piece on Stokes Croft by a group calling themselves Appropriate Media. Internet chat on local graffiti forums suggests that The Clean Collective (whose work we sell) are somehow linked to this action; an allegation that we are looking into. It seems unlikely, however, that there is any connection between the two groups, not least because the two individuals alleged to be involved are currently not even in the UK. Furthermore it would be extremely odd if The Clean Collective shared the same vehemently anti-graffiti ethos as Appropriate Media, in light of their links with us and – by implication – our roster of street artists. We will keep you posted with any further developments as they occur.”
