Deaner Jam 21st & 22nd May

May 22, 2011

As part of The Deaner Show that opened on Friday (20th May) at The Upfest Gallery in Bedminister, a paint jam was organised for the weekend in the Vector car park on Raleigh Road Opposite The Tobacco Factory.

Here are a few photos from Saturday’s jam featuring Epok, KaiOne, Zesk, Stae, Shade, Khoi, Bandito, Lokey, Zase, Ryder, Mr Riks, Deksi, 3rd Eye, Bowsell and Soker.

The walls will remain for the next two weeks when they will be repainted as part of the annual Upfest ’11.  It’s worth checking out The Deaner Show too, some really nice work work in there.

May 20, 2011

We dropped by the King Of Paint last night to take in the new solo show from Paris – ‘Come and Join the Future’.

The new collection of work sees Paris taking a  brightly coloured journey into abstractism, it is colourful, fun and, judging by the red dots going up .. popular.

The show opens to the public at 7.30pm this evening so …. Go and join the Future we think you’ll like it!

Here’s a little taster.

Also as part of The Deaner Show there will be live painting taking place in the Vector Car Park on Raleigh Road (off North Street, opposite The Tobacco Factory) over the weekend.

PARIS SOLO SHOW OPENING FRI 20th MAY

May 19, 2011

For over 20 years Graham Dews has built up an extensive and diverse body of work under the graffiti pseudonym PARIS, producing hand crafted letter forms, graffiti art and graphics for the design, music, film and fashion industries.

Joined by the other members of TCF (Twentieth Century Frescoes Crew, the seminal UK aerosol art team), he went on to paint hundreds of graffiti masterpieces and burners throughout the UK as well as collaborate with artists from around the world, including France, Switzerland, Spain and Germany.

As with his graffiti, Graham is continually pushing his art work in new directions. His digital work ranges from stylised logos and fonts, to dynamic patterns and limited edition prints and posters as well as canvas, printed fabrics and the ultimate surface of the city streets.

Friday the 20th May brings Paris to the King Of Paint shop and gallery space in Bristol where he will be showing his newest creations to the public in his solo show ‘Come and Join the Future’.

THE DEANER SHOW – 20th May – 31st May

May 16, 2011

Opening this Friday 6.30pm @ the Upfest Gallery (198 North Street, Bedminster)

Featuring artists who have painted the walls at Dame Emily Skate Park, Bedminster,  Bristol over the past 20 years!  And that’s quite alot!

“Dame Emily Skate Park in Bedminster was, and still is, the most important and frequently painted graffiti hall of fame in Bristol.

It was where the city’s first crew, the Z-Boys, took their initial, tentative steps into writing – on a ramp, rather than a wall – and was the location of some of the biggest jams ever held in Bristol.

Over the years thousands of writers from Bristol, the UK, Europe, and indeed all over the world, have got up on its legendary walls. The Deaner as it is affectionately known, is an ever-evolving physical record of the city’s graffiti history. If walls could talk we’d be here all day (and many of us still are, whenever we get the chance). To peel away the layers of paint on the walls of the Dean Lane hall of fame would be to reveal the very history of the city’s graff scene”. – FLX

TEMWA – Art For Africa 06/05/11

May 11, 2011

A massive well done to Jo and Team Temwa for putting on another amazing evening on Friday.

Not only was it a great night of  live painting, hilarious auctioneering and jaw dropping beat boxing but it raised £9,000 for Temwa, which,  Jo tells us will run a sustainable agriculture project in Malawi for 6 months reaching 1700 households.  Amazing.

Here are a few (bad quality) photos and video from from the night.

Congrats to all involved.

Beat box videos to follow.
