Just got back from the bottom end of Stokes Croft, where a huge amount of work’s going into getting the ‘Not A Penny Off The Pay, Not A Second On The Day‘ show put together for tomorrow night’s opening. It’s a brilliant space for it, and whilst not all of the artist’s work has arrived yet, this blog’s been given exclusive access to put up some preview snaps of the work that’s going to be there. So, enjoy!
A few people have been wondering exactly where it’s going to be, since there’s still a motorbike shop open at the bottom of Stokes Croft. For those who know the area, here it is as you come up from the Bearpit. For those coming from afar, look for the ‘No Propaganda’ sign!
If you’re coming from Gloucester Road way, you’ll spot these paste ups, variations on the show’s theme on the side of the old Club UK (that place is shut down again right?)
Never the best thing to get a shot of is it, a massive room. Still, awesome open space for a show like this.
So, to the art. Here’s some of SPQR‘s pieces for the show, love the morris dancer vs riot cop piece there.
Next up some Adam Koukoudakis, top bloke, and some lovely acrylic on board pieces.
Couple of pieces by Cept.
Some Matt Small goodness on boxes and the like.
and this piece was next to it, didn’t catch who by, will chase up and update later…
Edit – it’s KUNSTTERRORIST from Croatia…
This is one of a few Guy Denning pieces in the show
Sweet Toof, obviously.
Perhaps less obviously, also Sweet Toof (and the blue one with the gun you can just see to the left there)
Chin Chin, a new one on me, but a cool piece.
Another visitor from Berlin, Kowalski.
One of those big ass butterflies by Pure Evil, lovely pieces, butterflies really are this years image aren’t they?
and once you’ve got round all that, I’m guessing this is where you’ll have to pay!
So, not everything’s there yet, still more artists to turn up and more work to hang, they’ve got a long night ahead of them. It’s a brilliant space though, a great line up and some top work.
Rumour has it the show may leave Stokes Croft a little prettier than it first found it too, keep an eye out if you’re round that way.
Yet again, another show you just have to go and see. Can’t wait til tomorrow…
