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.

Art-el Xmas Newz

Xmas Newz

 

First and foremost we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and New Year, and thank you all for taking the time to check us out and support ourselves and the Art-el artists in 2008. We will be mixing it up in ’09 with more work as ever from new and established names.

For those of you who are regular visitors to http://www.Art-el.co.uk you may have noticed the recent site activity.

In the last week we have introduced two new artists:

First up we are delighted to work with and bring you the work of Pinky, another product of Hull’s seemingly endless academy of writers. He has been an inspiration and mentor to many well known faces in the current contemporary street art & illustrative scenes. Now living and working in Brighton his work remains uniquely original, fresh and constantly innovative, encompassing everything from his groundbreaking freestyle paper cuts through to watercolours with many stops in between.

Next work from a relatively new kid on the block Dan Kitchener who boasts a mean cv. Kicking right off with a completely hand painted edition titled ‘The Fallen’ available in two different colour-ways & in very limited editions of 25 of each. The amount of work involved in these does make the price of £65 incredibly reasonable. So either treat a loved one or go crazy and treat yourself.

Also currently available from MrH for a limited period only – The Ang-azing Ga-gy Jee-gus on canvas, a real one off, plus new prints from the mistress of billboard manipulation Dr.D & brand new paintings from the master of Scrawl Mr Jago alongside current work from all of the usual suspects.

We also have a whole new book section, complete with the most talked about publication of this year – Children of the Can, a comprehensive 25 year history of graffiti art in Bristol by Felix Braun who really has nailed it. With sections on, and interviews with 3D, Nick Walker, Banksy, Inkie, Paris and Xenz, (and many many more) even if you don’t live in Bristol this is a coffee table must have.

Catch you all in 2009, have a good’un.
