“I make art about life.

Technicolor interpretations of my experience. Explorations of the infinite particular and the iconographic past and present. This moment and how to celebrate it.

On the way I create work for Flip skateboards, Altamont Apparel and Gnu Snowboards. I exhibit in Brighton, Portland, Berlin, London and Hull.

What is sacred to you? What makes your life meaningful? What’s next?

So last weekend we spent all of Saturday taking down the gallery and re-hanging it with lots of new goodness for people to feast their eyes upon, including some outstanding new work by american artist RIPO, these will soon be up on the web-site too.

Here’s a little taster, but drop by and see us we’re open Thursday and Friday 11.30am to 5.30pm and Saturday 12.00pm to 4.30pm and we’ve got  the coffee pot on.

New RIPO pieces.

This will be the last re-shuffle now until our exciting exhibition schedule takes of in May.

First up Scottish artist, Lyken who has just finished making waves with a massively successful solo show in Glasgow, we’ve seen the pictures and if they’re anything to go by then you’ll want to be catching this show – opening night 4th May.

Next up is English writer Erms / Ermone who will be joing us from Paris (his current place of residence).  He has some pretty exciting ideas for the space so you’re not going to wanting to miss this one either.

The opening night for this show is the 1st June which co-incides with the start of the Bristol Biennial, so this won’t be any normal gallery opening as there will also be live music and entertainment, to include Kev the poet and the Triangulators (full details to follow).

Ladies love the summer and this summer we are loving the ladies.  The 29th of June sees the opening of a joint show with Fran Williams and Leanne Ellis, two very different styles but both extremly beautiful.

Fran Williams, new work "Call To Mind". Available at the AAF, Battersea, London 15-18 March

 

Leanne Ellis new work "Intention"

Bringing Brighton to Bristol in August, Pinky opens his solo show on the 3rd.  Psychedlic wonderment!

Pete Fowler, Matt Sewell, Pinkyvision, Russell Maurice, Dan Mudwig, Neasden Control Centre, Milk, Paris and Eco. Well established but distinctly avant-garde these Artists share a vision of the modern world that is abstract, colourful, esoteric, cartoonish, surreal and challenging. Each shares an ability to reflect the joy and celebrate the strange, to capture who we are and where we’re going and to keep moving forward. Join us at Brighton’s biggest and best new Gallery – Prescription Art – for a revolution in the Head – for paintings, murals, prints, live art, installations, ideas, conversations and nu-psychedelic sounds.

69 Show Opens

March 11, 2009

The hard work paid off. After another frantic day of hanging the doors have finally opened to Bristol’s newest Gallery.

The art and the space were very well received and the venue was busy all evening, music played and beer flowed. In neighbouring units there were cyclists, live art and a burlesque fan dancer so plenty for all too see.

The show is open for the next 6 weeks so if you couldn’t make it last night there is still a chance to catch the show at 131-133 Wilder Street, St Pauls, Bristol open Wednesday – Saturday 11am to 7pm and Sunday 11am – 4 pm.

A big thanks to everybody that worked so hard in making this show possible, all the artists, Paul, Anabel, Sean Phil, Sam, Damian, Red Bull and to everybody that showed up and those that plan to.

Art-el Print News

July 4, 2008

Evening all
Just to give people the heads up on a few Art-el prints that are currently available in limited numbers at www.Art-el.co.uk.

First up we have a print from the legend that is Mr Jago.

“What was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event,” mused art critic Harold Rosenburg of Jackson Pollock some fifty years back. The same observation can just as easily be applied to Mr Jago, humanoid of the Bristol scene, and founding member of the renowned Scrawl Collective. His explosive artwork layers robotic characters with free-flowing strokes and inky splashes, instantly calling to mind the chaotic intensity of “Jack the Dripper’s” riotous screens.

 

 

 

Secondly from Brighton’s hot young thing that is Pam Glew, and her Crime Scene screen print.
Pam Glew is a contemporary British artist, working in unusual media to produce modern paintings. Manipulating images of female icons in horror films in the current “Fear series”, she plays with our notion of paranoia, attraction and the American Dream. The portraits often portray vacuous beauty, within a compellingly seductive image.
The 100 x 70cm print is a 6 colour edition (grey, white, cream, red, blue and black) the beauty of it is that the layers are translucent quite stippled, so it looks very original and has a great depth,

The grey layer is mixed very loosely with a medium which mixes when it is being printed, so the whole piece has some great movement and layers of colour add to this a final coat of “dirty varnish” which ties in all the colours together, and makes the print much richer.
