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.

In Loving Memory

October 14, 2008
Just thought we’d show you K-Guy’s latest piece of street art.  It’s an installation piece in the form of a memorial shrine, titled “In Loving Memory of the Boom Economy’.  Cards on the flowers remember repossessed Ferraris and homes.  You can find it positioned by the Royal Exchange off Threadneedle Street, on page 5 of today’s The Times or page 3 of The Daily Telegraph’s Business supplement!!
Good work Mr Guy.

K-Guys Lovehate print release – Today

October 1, 2008

 

Today Art-el are pleased to unleash K-Guy’s new Lovehate prints. The originals were recently exhibited at the ‘Expression’ exhibition at the Brick Lane Gallery.

 

 

 

Each print has a hand finished background, then screen printed by the artist, followed by more embellishment making each unique and giving them a distressed, textural feel. 

 

They are not your Ikea, mass produced, machine engineered, lifeless, bosh ‘em out prints – and the results are stunning.  In the words of the artist he wanted to produce a print edition with “some soul, with some life and with a little punk rock thrown in for good measure”!  Available in 4 different variations, two editions of 50, one in silver and one in gold, plus ‘Jacked Up’ limited edition of 12 on slate card so thick these will have to be sent out flat and an edition of 10 artist proofs.

 

The image highlights our governments obsession with self harm  The bullshit we have been fed by Politicians via the media means that we live in fear, it’s an easy way of keeping the nation under control. The LOVEHATE wording stems from the classic love & hate knuckle tattoo but K’s take on it was to join the 2 words together to form one word i.e. there is no space between love and hate. Creating a new word in the English language meaning loving hate.

 

Over the past couple of years K-Guy has emerged & decorated the streets with his hard edged graphic style, often using discarded trash and found objects as the basis or medium of his work.  He has brought a poignant, relevant and thought provoking slant to the street art scene tackling challenging and sometimes controversial subjects which manifest themselves into visual rants. Sticking two fingers firmly up at the culturally elite he likes nothing more than to expose society’s dysfunction and the things people automatically SWEEP UNDER THE GREY MATTER.

 

“We are all Prostitutes and Junkies! Remember that when you’re trudging through the rain to work supping your skinny latte”.
