A WORD FROM CLEAN

April 9, 2009

SARAH COCKINGS AND ALICE HODGE (aka CLEAN) WOULD LIKE TO CLEAN A FEW THINGS UP!

Sorry your homework has lead you up the garden path ….. We are not associated with the group THE CLEAN COLLECTIVE who caused the damage to Banksy’s work.

The confusion has arisen from the ‘Appropriate Media’ website being registered to The Clean Collective….

We (Alice Hodge and Sarah Cockings) are a collective called simply …. ‘CLEAN’

Thank you for taking such an interest in our work however we are not in anyway connected to the self proclaimed culprits ‘Appropriate Media’.

MILD MILD WEST DEFACED

April 7, 2009

MILD MILD WEST DEFACEMENT
“Over the last 24 hours a huge storm has blown up in Bristol over the (attempted) defacing of Banksy’s infamous ‘Mild Mild West’ piece on Stokes Croft by a group calling themselves Appropriate Media. Internet chat on local graffiti forums suggests that The Clean Collective (whose work we sell) are somehow linked to this action; an allegation that we are looking into. It seems unlikely, however, that there is any connection between the two groups, not least because the two individuals alleged to be involved are currently not even in the UK. Furthermore it would be extremely odd if The Clean Collective shared the same vehemently anti-graffiti ethos as Appropriate Media, in light of their links with us and – by implication – our roster of street artists. We will keep you posted with any further developments as they occur.”

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.
