Andy Council Installation @ Zion, Bristol

June 4, 2012

So this event occurred just over a week ago now but since then things have been a bit crazy for us at Art-el, however it’s still worth a mention and a few pics.

In Bedminster Down you can found a little gem of a communty art space,  ZION promotes art from within the local community by showing regular exhibitions and holding creative events and other activities including quiz nights, markets and workshops.

In April of this this year artist and illustrator, Andy Council painted Zionasaurus in the centre’s garden to celebrate the official opening.

Since then Andy has spent a fair bit of his time at Zion turning this painting into sculpture, and after a complicated construction, Zionasaurus was finally installed at Zion Community Art Centre, Bedminster Down, Bristol and received an official launch party on the 26th May.

And, whilst on the subject of Andy Council, here’s the piece he painted at Upfest this weekend (a bit more current!), on North Street’s Workout Gym, Bristol.

May 19, 2012

We dropped into the Upfest Gallery last night to check out Epok and Smug’s joint exhibition ‘Deconstruction’.  If you haven’t been all ready then head that way as there is some amazing work to gaze over and of course purchase.

Here are a few sample shots

Deaner Jam 21st & 22nd May

May 22, 2011

As part of The Deaner Show that opened on Friday (20th May) at The Upfest Gallery in Bedminister, a paint jam was organised for the weekend in the Vector car park on Raleigh Road Opposite The Tobacco Factory.

Here are a few photos from Saturday’s jam featuring Epok, KaiOne, Zesk, Stae, Shade, Khoi, Bandito, Lokey, Zase, Ryder, Mr Riks, Deksi, 3rd Eye, Bowsell and Soker.

The walls will remain for the next two weeks when they will be repainted as part of the annual Upfest ’11.  It’s worth checking out The Deaner Show too, some really nice work work in there.

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.
