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.
