Nick Walker – In Gods We Trust

October 15, 2010

In Gods We Trust is an exciting new exhibition showcasing 12 debut pieces from iconic artist and graffiti pioneer – Nick Walker.  This is Nicks first major solo show in 2 years, it opened last Tuesday evening at the Art Sensus Gallery in London and runs until the 27th November so go check it out if you are out and about in London.

One of the new pieces (and also the show print) was his controversial piece ‘Le Corancan’ that the Parisian streets were hit up with earlier this year.

“In Gods We Trust confronts cultural practices and dogmas through a paradoxical exploration of political and religious landscapes. Debuting 12 new works, this shrewd new showcase is set to be Nick Walker’s most powerful collection to date”.

Rooftop Burner Fund – Auctions have started on E-Bay

July 1, 2010

These auctions are all about an artist called Rowdy.   You may or may not know him or his work but you will have no doubt seen his trademark crocodiles.   His career has been relentless; establishing in 1987 when he became an integral part of the Bristol graffiti scene  and in which he is still remains instrumental.

We have had the pleasure of working with Rowdy and he has become a good friend of ours and so were obviously devastated to hear when, recently left his house, (and studio) for a walk, he returned just half hour later, to find everything had been burned to the ground. EVERYTHING! ID, money,  clothes, personal possessions, art, the ability to make art, everything gone!

We realise that there are a whole host of charitable causes worth fighting for, countries that have suffered huge natural disaster who need aid,  but there are times too when friends need help and so for the next couple of weeks there are a number of art auctions on e-bay, organised by Steal from Work and Burning Candy.  All profit will go towards helping Rowdy get back on his feet and start over and to support someone who has so readily supported us as a scene by auctioning some art to help him get back to a position where he can do what he does best, making art.

It’s a testament to his popularity and reputation that so many artists have donated work to this auction. All work has been personally donated by the artists and the galleries that represent them: Banksy, Paul Insect, Swoon, Sickboy, Hush, Espo, the whole Burning Candy crew and a whole bunch more… So, it’s your chance to buy something beautiful and at the same time help out someone who has helped in his way to make graffiti and street art what it is today.

The auctions have started but there is still plenty of time to bid on the current auctions plus a promise of more to follow so go and check them out.

There is also further information at the Steal From Work web-site including information on the lots in future auctions, please click on the image to direct you straight to the site.

* HAPPY BIDDING *
