Advent Opening – 4th Dec

December 6, 2009

What a night!

It was a quiet start which did cause a little anxiety as the 2 degree gallery space is pretty well unknown and off the beaten track!

But people did find us and the gallery and the evening saw a constant flow of people.  The space was really well received as was the art work on display which, as we were showcasing some new and different artists, gave us all a very warm feeling inside.

We were particularly pleased to welcome Pedro Matos a Portuguese artist who actually made the journey to be at the opening night.  It was really good to meet him and his girlfriend and were stoked that they could be there – thanks guys.

It was a particularly bleak evening on the weather front and we would like to thank everybody for turning out and making Friday such a great night – the mulled cider and flaming brazier certainly helped.  And many people hung around despite the weather evening after we shut the doors for the night.

Here are a few snaps of the evening – the show is open until the 20th December Wed – Sun 11am to 7pm so if you couldn’t make it on Friday or even if you did but want to come and have another gander there is plenty of time to pop along.

For those of you who are unable to make please take a look at the attched pdf document (click on the word advent below) and if anything takes your fancy drop us a line at


Without You Baby There Ain’t No Us

June 10, 2009


There is a great project taking place at the Scope Art Fair in Basel this week. 

Without You Baby There Ain’t No Us, is a project from Swiss Artists Admir Jahic and Comenius Roethlisberger (The Invisible Heroes). The project has been exhibited in NY, Miami, Kuwait and following Basel, shows are scheduled for Paris, Hamburg and LA before the end of the year. Each exhibition employs a different research and selection criteria.

At the Scope Art Fair, the pair speaks of crisis by referring to passion and absurd commitment to a joyous idea, by recreating 604 rendered frames from the video Star Wars kid, which has experienced more than 13 million views on YouTube. All 604 will be on display at the Scope Art Fair in Basel as of Monday June 8th, 2009. 

Project Details:

In an attempt to disrupt the haphazard collection of archived videos that YouTube has become, artist duo Comenius Roethlisberger and Admir Jahic transformed the visual (and virtual) language of “broadcasting” into a physical medium by producing illustrations on heavy handmade paper and recreating virtual references by allowing elemental art materials to do what they do best and add to the confusion.

Each drawing is 21 inches x 31 inches / 56cm x 76cm and based on a rendered freeze-frame, complete with video title, user ratings and number of views.

The resulting collection is both distressing and humorous in its ability to highlight our often vulgar predilections.

69 Show Comes Together

March 10, 2009

What a day.

The day started at 11ish, laying out the art work where we intended to hang it. The art went up, and came back down again, got moved, went up and came back down again. This happened for most of the morning and well into the afternoon.

Then after a red bull or two, not only did we get wings but some inspiration too and the pieces started flying up. 12 hours later most of the show was hung, phew.

Looking forward to putting the finishes touches together tomorrow and throwing open those doors.

NEW RICHT PRINT – ‘Triangulars’

February 4, 2009


Hot Off The Press

It is with great pleasure that we bring to you a brand new and exclusive & very small edition print by Richt. His style with its clean lines, often depicting triangles, swans and faces, is fresh and distinctive and this hand pulled screenprint is representative of that.

Available now at the print is in a very limited edition of 25 with 4 hand coloured ap’s.

There’s no doubt that Richt & the ‘What’ Collective are gaining huge momentum not just in Bristol but far afield. They had their own ‘sell out cell’ at the first 12 Days of Xmas Show in 2007 and stole the show once again in 2008 with their own room, ‘Installations & General Vandalism’. They have also just closed the doors to a show at The Friend & Co Gallery in Bristol.

In 2008 Rich also painted at the second ‘Cans’ festival as well as other Summer events with the like’s of Bristol’s Community Festival and Glostonbury. Richt has also taken part in numerous group shows in both the UK & Europe.

With the ‘What’ boys also painting & creating installations for the prestigious RWA (Royal West of England Academy) as part of the groundbreaking & eagerly anticipated ‘Street Art in Bristol’ exhibition (22nd Mar – 2nd May). We will definitely be seeing a lot more of him in the future, with ’09 shaping nicely on both a personal level also with the ‘WHAT’ crew.

Richt is 27, apparently that is the time in a mans life where his metabolism slows down and he becomes fat.

Richt is watching his weight…………WHAT


Art-el Print News

July 4, 2008

Evening all
Just to give people the heads up on a few Art-el prints that are currently available in limited numbers at

First up we have a print from the legend that is Mr Jago.

“What was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event,” mused art critic Harold Rosenburg of Jackson Pollock some fifty years back. The same observation can just as easily be applied to Mr Jago, humanoid of the Bristol scene, and founding member of the renowned Scrawl Collective. His explosive artwork layers robotic characters with free-flowing strokes and inky splashes, instantly calling to mind the chaotic intensity of “Jack the Dripper’s” riotous screens.




Secondly from Brighton’s hot young thing that is Pam Glew, and her Crime Scene screen print.
Pam Glew is a contemporary British artist, working in unusual media to produce modern paintings. Manipulating images of female icons in horror films in the current “Fear series”, she plays with our notion of paranoia, attraction and the American Dream. The portraits often portray vacuous beauty, within a compellingly seductive image.
The 100 x 70cm print is a 6 colour edition (grey, white, cream, red, blue and black) the beauty of it is that the layers are translucent quite stippled, so it looks very original and has a great depth,

The grey layer is mixed very loosely with a medium which mixes when it is being printed, so the whole piece has some great movement and layers of colour add to this a final coat of “dirty varnish” which ties in all the colours together, and makes the print much richer.
