Co-LAB – officially open

March 17, 2013

Wow what a great day it was yesterday.

The one thing that we didn’t think would be working in time was the wonderful coffee machine, so when on Saturday morning the Co-LAB shop slowly filled with the aroma of ground coffee beans everybody breathed a sigh of relief and smiles filled faces.

The shop was busy all day and filled with great tunes as the DJ line up took turns at the decks.

A huge thanks to everybody who mucked in to make this happen (and happen on schedule), to all those that made the effort to put your head through the doors yesterday (and hopefully in the days, weeks, and months to come), to the artists who made those extra special touches, to the DJ’s for banging out da tunes, to all those who helped get Co-LAB out there re-blogging, sharing and re-tweeting and of course to Ujima Radio’s Mistri, although if you weren’t listening I can’t tell you why! (98FM)

Co-LAB is now open everyday at 2-4 Fairfax Street, Bristol, BS1 3DB – Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm and Sundays 11am – 5pm.

We were e-mailed these incredible photographs of the gallery over the Easter weekend from JoE Clarke who is a co-resident at The College.

The e-mail simply read “Happy Easter”.

Crimes of Passion

April 3, 2012

In the spring of 2009 nearly 50 of Bristol’s best known and most successful graffiti and street artists invaded the city’s oldest and grandest gallery, the Royal West Of England Academy (RWA).  It was a brave gamble allowing the art to be spray directly onto the walls of the Academy, but a gamble that paid of as record numbers attended and it was hailed as the show of the year.

Here’s a little reminder of what it was all about.

‘GREAT BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES’ SUMMER EXHIBITION – 16th to 24th July

July 12, 2011

The Birds are back for their summer exhibition.  If you have have been to a Great Birds show in the past  you’ll know what a treat there is in store, if not you need to go check out what you’ve been missing.

The birds have been working exceptionally hard over the last few months to bring you, fresh and exciting new work and we really do think that this will be the biggest and best show yet, so go show the birds some love.

 PRIVATE VIEW FRIDAY 15th JULY 7pm TILL LATE at

 The Upper gallery,

The Island,

Bridewell St,

Bristol, BS1 2LE.

The exhibition will then run from 16th – 24th July

12-7pm daily

>|<

Great Birds of the British Isles are four female artists,

Milk, K148, Dora and Amour currently living and working in Bristol, England.

They bring site-specific beautification, to exhibition spaces and disused shops, the diamonds in the rough.


The collective formed in 2009.  Working closely together incorporating their visuals and individual styles,

whilst all concentrating on their own creations – their delusions of grandeur, in the feathered revolution.

The birds combine paintings, prints and photography, with their use of colour, form and essence, allowing the viewer to find each space unique.  

Spreading their wings, dropping their liquid styles onto the walls and floors. Decorating, and simplifying, all in one stroke.

 ‘a rebel dove declares its love’

CRIMES OF PASSION

March 17, 2009

If you only get to one exhibition this year, make it this one at the Royal West Of England Academy in Bristol, a major show of new work by the city’s best known and most successful graffiti and street artists and is the first show of its kind in the city since the Arnolfini’s groundbreaking 1985 show, Graffiti Art.

Celebrating Bristols rich and diverse contemporary scene, which has nurtured many of the UK’s most successful graffiti and street artists, including 3D, Inkie, Banksy, Nick Walker, Sickboy and TCF Crew, and continues to be a breeding ground for a wealth of exceptional creative talent.

We have been lucky enough to have visited the venue to watch the work being thrown up and it is going to be a killer of a show. It opens on Friday night and and is open for 6 weeks so get along.

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.

69 Show Comes Together

March 10, 2009

What a day.

The day started at 11ish, laying out the art work where we intended to hang it. The art went up, and came back down again, got moved, went up and came back down again. This happened for most of the morning and well into the afternoon.

Then after a red bull or two, not only did we get wings but some inspiration too and the pieces started flying up. 12 hours later most of the show was hung, phew.

Looking forward to putting the finishes touches together tomorrow and throwing open those doors.
