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.

SEE NO EVIL, BRISTOL

August 16, 2011

Nelson Street in Bristol’s City Centre was a buzz on Saturday as the party got into full swing.

But of course it’s all been about the painting.  At the start of the week the walls were boasting a massive piece by Ayrz from Barcelona, a fresh mural from New Yorkers the TATS CRU, a huge black and white piece by Shoe from Amsterdam and the making of a piece by Mr Wany from Italy.  Now as the party comes to an end there are further pieces on the main street from El Mac from LA, Mau Mau, Xenz, Cheo, Jody and a giant vandal by Bristol’s Nick Walker and many many more.

If you still haven’t been down to check it out but do intend to, make sure you meander off the main road as up steps, around corners and in alleys you’ll find some of the Bristol artists we all know and love including Richt, 45RPM, Tom Hine, Paris, Milk and Andy Council.

Here are a few pics from the first days of painting- for a full set of pics, which were updated as the week progressed please visit.

SEE NO EVIL AUGUST 2011 – BRISTOL

July 19, 2011

BIG plans for Nelson Street in Bristol city centre have now been publicly revealed. 

Over 30 UK and international artists will be in town from the 14th to the 21st August busy transforming the dingy streets’ grey concrete buildings into something spectacular.  Some of these buildings are in access of 50ft tall so there are going to be some HUGELY impressive murals on show, in fact quite possibly some of the largest in the world.

Organisers, including Bristolian graffti artist Inkie aka Tom Bingle, hope that  – See No Evil – will be the biggest local  art event since Banksy took over the Museum of Bristol in 2009 giving the city a massive boost.

The road will be closed for the weekend of the 20th & 21st August for a street party, with local traders opening street stalls, music and pop up bars on the ground floors of some of the vacant properties.  There will also be workshops so people can learn more about the art form. 
 
Nelson Street has capacity for up to 5,000 people at any one time, but if there are more than that then the other access points at Christmas Street and Broad Street will be closed off.  Visitors would be let in at the Colston Avenue end of Nelson Street, and leave at Union Street.

Participating international artists include El Mac (LA), Smug (Australia), Tats Cru (NY), Swanski (Poland), Wow 123 (Germany), Neils ‘Shoe’ Meulman )Holland),  Mr. Wany (Italy), Revert (France), Kashink (France) & Otto Schnade, (Chile) and of course there will also be many of your favourite UK artists including Inkie, Nick Walker, Kid Acne, Mr Jago, Soker, Xenz, Paris & Cheo to name but a few.

Make sure you’re there and witness history being made!

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”.

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.
