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.

Art-el Xmas Newz

December 17, 2008

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.

Spring Newzzzz

April 14, 2008

Yellow

Just a quick newsletter to bring you bang up to date with what has, is and will be going on over the next few weeks and months.

With just a moment’s reflection it was wicked that (man of the moment) SPQR’s first print release sold out in super quick time, so a huge thanks to everyone who ordered, not only the print but weighed in buying work from all artists featured on the site and of course thanks to the artists.

On the same tip, a huge shout to Nick Walker, Pam Glew, Adam Koukoudakis and Brian Jones who have all enjoyed success in LA in recent months.

(Note to self, shut up and get on with it)

We are pleased to hear that Mr Koukoudakis has just put the finishing touches to a nice edition on canvas of the image that has proved to be his most popular to date, Cheeky F**ckin’ Pigs!

Add to the mixer 4 new pieces of ‘utter loveliness’ on wood, from the little cockney diamond known as Dora.  She will soon be launching www.okdora.com, which will document her work, both indoor and out and generally ‘Dora’ things up.

Seems like Jago has gone abstract mental, he’s really dropping some fresh works now that he’s up and running in his new studio space. We will be putting up a new canvas more sweet originals on fancy paper.

There are another 6 SPQR 5th Man studies available which will grace the site for a mere 3 seconds very soon.

Looking forward to the sunny end of spring we have new and old pieces from Graham Paris (TCF Crew, Wet Shame, Kuilddosh and legendary typographer), along with new works from K-Guy and originals and prints from a number of the South West’s finest.

ALL new work will be released on a totally random basis i.e. when the insomnia is bad it could be 2am which would suit those not adhering to GMT!

Rock Steady
