THE DEANER SHOW – 20th May – 31st May

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
