More events…

Phewf, the Bank Holiday weekend’s not even over, and already there’s more Bristol graf goodness to be taking yourself along to!

First up, there’s the new show at Guerrilla Galleries this Thursday (8th May), featuring loads of different artists, including Cheo, China Mike, Deadgirl, Ghostboy, Mr Jago, BS51, Lokey, 45RPM, Sepr and many more. Going to be bringing you preview photos of that one in advance all being well, check back here in a couple of days…

The very next day, Friday the 9th May, there’s a night down the Thekla that, amongst other things, will bring you live painting from Lokey, Cheba and Nikill, check the flyer.

If you’ve still got anything left, then head on over to the Tobacco Factory on Saturday the 10th May where, as part of a wider load of events Cheba, Lokey (and possibly Cheo too) will be doing yet more live painting from 3pm til 7pm. Weapon of Choice resident Betamax will be on the wheels of steel for that one too. Can’t think of many better ways to spend a Saturday avo.

Speaking of Weapon of Choice, that’s rolled around again this month too, the following Tuesday 13th May, usual bizniss, this time Seza and Soker doing the honours with the paint pens.

Ain’t Bristol cool?

By the way, for those of you after some work by the ever painting Mr Cheba, his wicked little print, Chebastein, is now available from Tangent books too..

  1. Hi,

    I don’t know what your definition of graffiti is but 99% of what you feature here on the site most certainly is not.

    Surely Bristol Street Art blog would be a better name for you guys?

    Just a comment..

    Yeah, difficult one isn’t it, street art may well be a better name for some stuff on here, it started out as graffiti, but it’s kinda taken on a life of its own since really.

    Then again, how would you define graffiti? It’s a debate worth having…

  3. I dont think its going to be worth either of our respective times to have a long old debate about it really.

    It just seems that youre covering just the ‘arty’ side of things. Canvasses and shows and the like.

    You should take a train journey somewhere and see some proper graffiti. Names repeated over and over again. bang bang.

    Ah right, so you’re seeing tagging as graffiti, and other stuff as arty? Fair enough, can see that point. Always said though that this blog, with rare exceptions, won’t cover just tagging, especially given the standards its fallen to in many places these days (funnily enough, i take trains the whole time, and see tons of it).

    Plan originally was to cover more of Bristol on a street by street basis, but feedback was when we did that people didn’t care, and the web traffic always fell when that stuff was posted.

    Have been thinking it would be good to get more of that stuff up though, but there are only so many hours in the day though really!

    I think seeing as about 99% of all decent Graffiti artists are turning their talents to putting work on canvas. It allows the likes of us to buy and admire art in our own homes. If this blog was purely on Graffiti alone then it would make your job of blogging a whole lot easier! maybe only have to update the site once a week!
    As for tagging I personally dont think it can be classed as graffiti more along the lines of criminal damage.It just gives talented Graffiti artists a bad name and makes the area less appealing…but each to your own.
    Keep up the good work on the site as I know its appreciated by alot of people.

    Aslong as it doesnt cause offence and doesnt look like a scribble, I’m all for it be it stencil, sticker or sprayed.

    To be honest, I would like to see some of the canvass art put on the street, but these days the risk of being busted for not doing it on a legal wall, is just not worth the hassle for these guys.

    I’d like to see some more street graffiti, maybe more of the skate parks aswell, but I like the ‘arty’ side too.

    This blog sums up whats going on around Bristol for me, as I spend less time walking around seeing good graffiti and more time in traffic jams being bored.

    Keep up the good work mate!

    Cheers both, glad it’s working ok for you. Think there’s definitely room for more stuff from the streets on here too, especially now the weather’s better and days are longer. You wouldn’t believe how difficult some pieces have been to photograph with the low hanging winter sun…
