SHEONE SOLO SHOW ‘BLACKATELIER’ OPENING 26TH OCT @ ART-EL GALLERY

October 16, 2012

After a decade of traveling the globe, taking in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, the Gambia and many points in between, SheOne brings his signature bold expressive strokes and highly personalised abstract over-spray to Art-el Gallery in Bristol.

Opening at 6pm on the 26th October and entitled ‘Blackatelier’, the exhibition will feature a collection of brand new works and installation pieces created whilst in residency at the gallery.  The work reflects on his expansive history of mark making that is deep rooted in the era of New York subway graffiti.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I discovered graffiti as a fully formed art culture, I took the idea of spray-painting a name and have been abstracting that concept ever since.

The new works are the latest entries in an aesthetic journal, information mapped out in a stylised argot, gathered from the immediacy of site specific painting in the abandoned edges and questioning the transient nature of public art.

In graffiti you have to be prepared to walk away from your works.  It is a one shot deal, whether it’s a rooftop in the Bronx or an abandoned farmhouse on a Sardinian hillside, you will never personally see the work again.  What is important is committing to a moment and the experience of making the works.

This latest show captures fragments of these journeys, externalised private moments, experience translated into permenance.

Blackatelier is wherever I am working, an ambient studio where internal impulses can be realised, a sloganised output made physical with spraypaint.

Please come and join us for what will be Art-el’s final exhibition of 2012.  It’s been a great year and we’ve hosted some amazing show’s with some super talented artists, including Mark LykenErmsone and Pinky.  The remaining work from these shows can still be purchased through the Art-el website.

The show runs until the 17th November – normal Art-el gallery opening times apply.

The International Meeting of Styles (MOS) brings aerosol artists and the public together to experience live aerosol art and the creative process.  It provides a focal point for urban street culture and a platform for aerosol art to reach the larger community.  It is an event inspired by creativity and cultural exchange.

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.

Inkie aka Tom Bingle

 
 
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.

Each of these artists has ventured down unique paths in their post graffiti output & each offers a radical take on expressive, figurative & letter-based abstraction. These works, while differing in approach & execution retain the sense of movement, assured marks & imperfect beauty of graffiti itself.

The participating artists include SheOne, Duncan Jago, Jaybo Monk, Matt W. Moore, Augustine Kofie, Nawer, Morten Andersen, Poesia, Derm and Mark Lyken.

Opening Night. Fri 1st July. 7-10pm
