Coming to Art-el Gallery soon – Georgina Anton

July 23, 2013

Art-el Gallery will soon be introducing new artist Georgina Anton to the web-site.  Her work is of differing contrasts from light and airy to dark and moody, but all her paintings have one thing in common and that is that they are simply stunning.

Beauty is in the eye of the storm:  An introduction to Georgina H. Anton

Beyond the contrasting conditions of a youth spent in Leeds, Sheffield and Sydney Australia as an art student, the lifelong works of Georgina H. Anton have ultimately been shaped by the opposing powers of dark and light, tension and tranquillity and by Mother Nature’s ability to combine the chaotic with the clinical.  Street art, Blue Note LP sleeves and the merging of far-removed techniques like textiles and music, were all sources of inspiration when honing her skills, before she went on to  follow in the footsteps of peers Canaletto, Rene Mackintosh and Brett Whitely to name but a few.

'Midsummer'

‘Midsummer’

Once a humble, selective florist with an enviable client-base that featured an array of Australian A-list celebrities, as well as assignments for the Royal family, Bristol-based Anton effortlessly endeared VIPs with her unassuming approach. This held her in good stead and as her career path evolved, it led her to become an artist and collaborator who worked with prestigious contemporaries such as Psyops, Australian Fashion Week and L’Oreal New York, where top teamwork-derived results were produced by adopting Anton’s open creative process.

'Double Denim'

‘Double Denim’

The opportunity to combine fine art with floristry afforded Anton some invaluable insight into her organic creations and instinctive output. Whilst creating less flirtatious works that would signify her coming-of-age as a conceptual artist, designer and illustrator, she became friends with many established creatives including Mark Tappin & Simon Gofton (founders of TappinGofton) and photographer Kate Peters.  Throughout every textured design, whether floral of otherwise, Anton still preserves her admiration and unapologetic reverence for spontaneity.

'Dodge a Bullet'

‘Dodge a Bullet’

It could be said that Anton, whose love of graffiti inadvertently led her to failing the 11+ exam, owes it all to a dedicated art teacher and the monetary gift of encouragement they left upon their passing, so as to nurture her obvious talents.  Today, Anton’s audience remains appreciative of both her line and brush work, which thrives on the freedom she grants herself when working.  Anton’s atmospheric creations continue to reflect her love of nature, aesthetics, simplicity and style, with loose, crisp edges currently guiding her long-serving curiosity with all things strangely beautiful.

CONGRATULATIONS TEMWA

May 16, 2012

A massive congratulations to the wonderful staff at Temwa for another great evening on Saturday.

The sun came out and the beer garden of the Full Moon was packed.  It was great to see some faces that we’d not seen for a long time and Babyhead’s Tom was roped in to play auctioneer again, which is always great comedy value and we loved the auctioneers claw hammer!

But of course none of this was the reason for the night, and it was great to see people digging deep on the auction lots raising an astonishing £8,000 for the charity, all of which will go towards creating sustainable communties in Malawi.

Thanks and big ups to all those involved and turned out on Saturday night.

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.

Rooftop Burner Fund – Auctions have started on E-Bay

July 1, 2010

These auctions are all about an artist called Rowdy.   You may or may not know him or his work but you will have no doubt seen his trademark crocodiles.   His career has been relentless; establishing in 1987 when he became an integral part of the Bristol graffiti scene  and in which he is still remains instrumental.

We have had the pleasure of working with Rowdy and he has become a good friend of ours and so were obviously devastated to hear when, recently left his house, (and studio) for a walk, he returned just half hour later, to find everything had been burned to the ground. EVERYTHING! ID, money,  clothes, personal possessions, art, the ability to make art, everything gone!

We realise that there are a whole host of charitable causes worth fighting for, countries that have suffered huge natural disaster who need aid,  but there are times too when friends need help and so for the next couple of weeks there are a number of art auctions on e-bay, organised by Steal from Work and Burning Candy.  All profit will go towards helping Rowdy get back on his feet and start over and to support someone who has so readily supported us as a scene by auctioning some art to help him get back to a position where he can do what he does best, making art.

It’s a testament to his popularity and reputation that so many artists have donated work to this auction. All work has been personally donated by the artists and the galleries that represent them: Banksy, Paul Insect, Swoon, Sickboy, Hush, Espo, the whole Burning Candy crew and a whole bunch more… So, it’s your chance to buy something beautiful and at the same time help out someone who has helped in his way to make graffiti and street art what it is today.

The auctions have started but there is still plenty of time to bid on the current auctions plus a promise of more to follow so go and check them out.
