Don’t forget the Art for Africa auction tomorrow night at The Attic Bar, Stokes Croft, organised by TEMWA.
Always a great night out – see you there.
We love May, mainly because this is the month that Temwa hold their amazing Art for Africa auction.
It has grown year on year and continues to raise much needed funds for sustainable community development in the African Republic of Malawi.
You don’t have to collect art or even be a fan of it as the evening provides so much more, it really is a very entertaining evening.
So if you’ve not been before then why not just give it a go, and for those of you that have well you’ll know what a good night it is already so we’ll see you there!
|Temwa is proud to announce that our annual Art for Africa Auction is back! Come on down to the Attic Bar, Stokes Croft, on 12th of May for one of our biggest events of the year. Some of Bristol’s world-renowned street artists including; Xenz, Inkie, Paris and FLX (to name a few) will be contributing, as well as some amazing up-and-coming new talent. This year we’ll be branching out beyond street art into other contemporary mediums, it’s all lined up to be an exceptional exhibition. A full catalogue of the work will be available from our Art for Africa website from Monday the 7th of May.As well as the chance to bag yourselves some incredible art in the auction, there will be live painting from Mr. Jago. Greg Minto and FLX, with more still to be confirmed.And it doesn’t stop there… if all that wasn’t enough, we will have live music from the Disco Two and Bash Money as well as live beat boxers Minimus and S30.|
“Having worked with Temwa over the last few years I have seen the dedication & passion they have for their work in Malawi. We work on the annual Urban Art Auction in London every year and it’s been a joy to work with them.”-Inkie
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.
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.

And of course The Deaner Show opens at the Upfest Gallery in Bedminster tonight, plenty of time to fit both shows in though.
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.
It was a busy weekend for Bristol street art on Saturday a TCF Crew re-union, with Eco, Ziml, Paris, Feek and Xenz getting together to do a massive production in Ashton Park underneath the Cumberland Basin. It was a great day and the end result was something else and will be put put o good use as images from the production will be projected onto the Colston Hall at it’s opening event in September.
Also over the weekend La Kota was getting new look from Felix, Jody, 3Dom, Epok, Sepr, Soker and Cheo and a pretty good one it was turning out to be.
Looking forward to seeing the finished piece.
