To date, £85,000 has been raised through Temwa’s art events. 

This years event kicks off with with live painting from some of the urban art scenes finest talents, including Mr Jago, China Mike, Mau Mau and more to be confirmed. PLUS Babyhead frontman Tom as the entertaining auctioneer. And as if that isn’t enough, there are some legendary DJs and beatboxers lined up to carry the party on into the wee hours.

Studio Drop In

April 7, 2012

So having decided to award ourselves by having the weekend off from the gallery, we were up bright and early to tread (or more likely drive) the streets of Bristol to get some flyers our there for Art-el’s next show ‘Pattern Interrupt’ (a solo show with Mark Lyken opening 4th May 6-9.30pm incase you didn’t know!).

So even when we’re off, we’re working!  However we soon learnt that this wasn’t the case for all as we hit closed door by closed door!!  So with a failed mission in view we decided to drop in on a few friends who too were working!

Mr Jago and Chinamike busy painting in the studio (also shared with Andy Council, DAN, 3rd Eye and Gregor Minto), here are few shots from the studio of creativity and complete madness!

Crimes of Passion

April 3, 2012

In the spring of 2009 nearly 50 of Bristol’s best known and most successful graffiti and street artists invaded the city’s oldest and grandest gallery, the Royal West Of England Academy (RWA).  It was a brave gamble allowing the art to be spray directly onto the walls of the Academy, but a gamble that paid of as record numbers attended and it was hailed as the show of the year.

Here’s a little reminder of what it was all about.

ART FOR AFRICA – 6TH MAY 2011

April 26, 2011

For a brilliant night out and to support an amazing charity head down to the Attic Bar in Stokes Croft on the 6th May. 

Temwa is a very hard-working Bristol based charity who are continually fund-raising in order to provide a sustainable future for the people of Malawi through community based projects.  100% of the profits from the event go directly to Temwa. 

It’s a really fun night and you may even pick yourself up an arty bargain.

The Mercy Centre Foundation Appeal

September 23, 2008

During the last few months three lowly sketch pads have been making their way around the country and pitching up at the studios and homes of some very well recognised artists.  Their once empty pages are now over flowing with paintings from –

 

Mr Jago                                                   

Chinamike

Guy Denning

Grafter                                              

Rourke

Jef Aerosol

Beejoir
Matt Small                            

Miss Bugs
Goldie                            

Mau Mau
Hush                 

Neverwork
Brian Jones

Dale Grimshaw
Herakut                 

Case
SPQR     

WeLikeStatic
Nick Walker

 

These sketch pads have now made their way back to the place where it all began, but this is not the end of the journey, they have one final trip to make and it could be to your house!

 

The pads are to be auctioned in October in order to raise funds for the Mercy Centre Foundation who work to help the children and communities of the many slums of Bangkok.  You could win an incredibly rare piece of art and help an extremely worthwhile cause.

All that’s left to say now is good luck and thanks to all that take part in the auction and of course to Neil (aka Harveyn) and Ged who have set up and organised this fund-raiser.
