Max Rippon (RIPO) show in Barcelona

January 12, 2011

Just a heads up for anyone in or around Barcelona this coming Friday, which sees the opening of a new exhibition of paintings and installations by one of our favourite writers/artists the incredibly talented Ripo.

‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ opens this Friday, January 14th at Galeria Cosmo, Barcelona and runs until February 14th.

Originating from New York but seemingly in love with Barcelona Ripo continues to tear things up around the walls of Europe and beyond with its unique textbased work and his unique and crazy fresh style. His choice of location for his outdoor work is always bang on the money and his ‘ Your Name Here’ project always had us waiting for his next piece to pop up. His recent ‘ Change in Vain’ wall was definitely one of our highlights of 2010.

Lokey Solo Show @ WOC Gallery 12/11/10

October 26, 2010

At 6pm on Friday 12th November Weapon of Choice Gallery will be throwing open their doors to the first solo show from the artist  ‘Lokey’.  Lokey was born and raised in Bristol.  His passion for graffiti started in the mid 1980’s following  a chance encounter in a local park with some break-dancing kids who had returned from their American holiday armed with hip-hop mix tapes and photographs of graffiti. 

Lokey is a product of the  Kingswood Hip Hop scene that nurtured the likes of Deed, Cheo, Kato and Soker.  The youngest of the Veterans of Bristol writers he has been painting the streets for the last twenty years during which time  he has been a member of Bad Applez, Dry Breadz, collaborated with many of the big names in graffiti (including Banksy) and is now considered one of the best 3D letter writers around.

This show is an exhibition of artworks adapted from Lokey’s black books, his inspiration for his graffiti, and an insight into his imagination.  This one’s not to be missed!

Show runs until the 5th of December 2010.

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.

Mr Jago @ Friend & Co Gallery

January 24, 2009

On a corner, on the Gloucester Road Road in Bristol, is sited the Friend & Co Gallery. It’s the quaintest little gallery we ever did see, so tiny that next month the gallery could find itself becoming an exhibit in it’s own right as our good friend Mr Jago takes over the space in February.

If you want to know what the hell we’re talking about you’d better take a trip and see for yourselves, the show is open from the 11th February to the 1st March, plenty of time to come along for a gander.
