So, the exhibition of the boards from the Bristol Festival closed yesterday, and looks like few of them have seen much interest in the end. A shame really, as there’s some top work there, and it’s a good cause, but the point people sometimes seem to miss is that graf/street art on boards may look great, but really isn’t that practical. Have you got space for 25 meters worth of board, 8ft high, in your gaff?
So, they’re all up on ebay now, closing Wedneday, and will be interesting to see what happens then. Certainly it’ll get the work in front of a wider market, and the automatic email pings for people watching for various artist’s names will have gone crazy this morning. There are some smaller bit in there too, since some of the boards got damaged by sun and high winds, some people’s work has ended up as quite nice and canvas sized.
Only a shame they’ve used a new ebay account called bristol-festival to sell it all, as it’s got zero feedback and that may well affect the bidding. Some of the copy in the ads is a bit dodgy too, spellcheck would have been handy, and if there is a reserve price on some of the pieces too (as an email out about it suggests) then could have mentioned that too.
But otherwise if you’re into this stuff, and have the space, then check out the items on ebay here…
