Huge TCF Production

Thanks to Paris for the tip off and a reader for a nudge on this one, a big new TCF production down in Long Ashton. Down below the maze of roads that is Brunel Way if you fancy a wander.

The Weekend’s Harbourside Painting

When Children of the Can came out, the massive length of boards in front of the industrial museum development were finally painted, having sat there unpainted for too long. That was a while back now though, so last weekend they got a fresh coat of paint from more of Bristol’s great and good. All done in conjunction with the museum, who are going to have a bit of a display about it when it finally opens to boot.

Some really nice work done, of all sorts of styles, and the usual ‘queuing to take photos’ thing going on earlier today. Here’s some results…

Thanks to Jer Forceone for the detail on some of the names!

RWA Show – The Finished Thing

The show’s preview night is tonight then, and it opens properly tomorrow (Saturday) so the photos can go up. Got to say, unless you absolutely can’t make it down to this, don’t rely on the photos for it, they’re never going to capture the whole thing properly.

Anyway, photos of the finished works in there, again in no particular order, courtesy of WordPress.

RWA Show – The Run Up

So, three weeks and a silly amount of photos later, here’s some shots that show some of how the whole RWA show came together. Not even going to attempt to put them in anything other than a gallery, but have put notes on them about what they are. WordPress is freestyling the order it puts them in too, but they’re all dated.

It was a blast watching it all happen, hope the photos are as fun to look at as they were to take.

New RWA Show Print

Mentioned earlier there was some more news coming up on prints around the RWA show. Well, it’s the guys from Let Them Hang again, putting something together with the good people from Steal From Work, and producing a version of the ‘First Great Weston’ style print for the RWA.

Once again it’s a China Mike drawing for a base, this time of the RWA building itself, looking as if it’s been (in some cases literally) bombed by all of the artists appearing in the show.

Printing was going on today, so here are some shots of the print in progress.

It’s a colour print obviously, but there weren’t any finished ones done when these photos were taken, so for an idea of what it looks like, here’s one with just the black outlining layer done as a test. You can spot Feek and Mudwig’s contributions straight off, though some artists contributions don’t come out that well in this layer.


Interesting to watch it going on, and see some real printers proofs, rather than just ‘prints with higher price tags’ like the term too often means. Here’s one with the blue layers applied to a black outline.


The brown layer was going on in this run, here’s a black print being used to line up the screen for it.


Paint goes on…


…gets pulled across the screen…


…and paul gives it a check.


Satisfied, it’s on to the pile of prints with two layers done already.


First one done and checked, all spot on. It’s not for nothing that Paul’s got the reputation he has as a top printer.


On with the run then, happens really quickly once it gets going, his able assistant laying them out to dry on the racks.


The screens once used stack up in the sunshine…


…whilst the prints get fanned dry in the warm spring air.


So, the details. Edition of 200 apparently, only signed by China Mike this time, and deliberately much cheaper than the First Great Weston print, £125 wherever you buy it. Plan is to have them on sale through the Let Them Hang site and the Crimes of Passion site, as well as, of course, at the RWA show itself.

Keep an eye out for a photo of the finished thing over the next few days.

Children Of The Can – The Weekend’s Painting

Getting to this one a little late annoyingly, but can’t be helped. Was, by all accounts, freezing down there over the weekend when the painting was going on, but everyone seemed to have fun.

So, as mentioned before, to go with the launch of ‘Children of the Can‘, Felix pulled off a bit of a coup and got it arranged to paint the boards outside the current industrial museum redevelopment, boards people had been eying enviously since the Bristol Festival and before.

The piece as a whole is a timeline of Bristol Graf, from some of the first writers to some of the most recent ones, with some people painting (with a spray can at least) for the first time in ages.

Annoyingly, with all the boats now moored up, presumably for the winter, it’s hard to get a good view of the whole thing from across the river.


Still though, starting from the far left as you look at it, it kinda builds up with some random pieces…


…an initial Paris…


…and accompanying Milk.


This is sweet, done by Joe i guess.


Not strictly keeping to the timeline, which should start here, Andy Council. Although the piece hints back to the early days of graf in a way doesn’t it.


Next up Cheba with one of his Brunel characters.


The man behind today’s events, Flx, with some top work.


Inkie couldn’t make it down for the weekend, but should be getting his piece up later in the week.


Back to the old skool, Source.


Next to Kato writing ‘ASK’. What can it mean? You may well ask.


Side by side, Turroe and Shimz, don’t see enough of their work round still.


Closer on Turroe…


…likewise Shimz, really like them both.


First time Jody’s painted with a spray can for 18 years apparently. Damn shame, the man’s a legend (check his work in the Children of the Can book too for more).


Lokey on fine form as ever, with a firm understanding of web marketing to boot!


Teaoh next to…


…Cheo, with Deed in the middle there.


Unfortunate really that the first painting done on these boards a few months back was done right in the middle, as it breaks up the flow of the timeline a bit. Still though, 3rd Eye’s work’s tidy…


…and kinda cool to see a bunch of random kids right in the middle of all this work.


This one raised a smile, Pen and Boswell on typically dark form…


…with a sign right by them titled ‘My Perfect Bristol’. Wonder if the placing was deliberate.


Dicy made it down in the end, also writing ASK, with a reference in there to Poppa Acer too!


Soker and Feek working together again…


…love the names intertwined (though can’t confess to having spotted that initially…)


Feek with the character again, All Suckers Krushed.


Rounding it off, Ponk on the end.


Next along another slot for Paris…


And Milk next door (with a birthday shout to Acer, a whole lot of love going on).


Sepr, Epok and Kaione put together a huge piece, only finished off yesterday. This is the left…


…and this the right.


Rowdy with what looks like some kinda wordsearch, love it.


45RPM representing for the WHAT lot this weekend.


Not entirely sure this was meant to be there, Song on a slot marked out for Seza.


Good to see Magic, Voyder and 3Dom all getting out together at the same time on this one…


…close up on Magic and Voyder…


…with some top work by 3Dom at the other end.


Haker doing his own thing a bit further down.


And finally, rounding it off right at the end, a space put aside for the next next generation…


…including Prankz, keener than mustard.


All told, the length of board is bloody huge, runs right down to that crane at the end there, and this photo wasn’t even taken right from the other end.


So, some bits still to be finished off, and a timeline to be added over the top of it all as well. It should all hopefully be there for a while, and there’s talk of more jams going on there at some point in the future. About bloody time, and all credit to Felix for sorting it out in amongst everything else that must be going on at the moment.

Go and check it all out, and once again, if you haven’t bought the book yet, then do!

(Props to Lokey for the guided tour for this post too!)

Not Just Banksy Night


So, back from the Not Just Banksy night up at UWE’s Frenchay Campus. Wicked night, loads going on, if a little a victim of social marketing. Facebook numbers don’t translate to real life that often sadly. Still though, top crowd in a tough location, take this down the centre and you’d be on a winner.

Got there a little later than expected, to find Nikill at work on the Weapon of Choice wall.


A broader shot of the painting, Nikill, Boswell and Inkie from right to left, with the Art Tart in front of them. Weird.


The Art Tart was drawing a picture of them all drawing a picture, painfully postmodern, but pretty darn funny, and not that bad a picture as it happens either.


Inkie’s piece part way through.


The evening was full of various other things, this was a showing of the ‘Tags to Riches’ documentary.


Inkie and Boswell at work, Boswell’s piece was bonkers, a simple sketch turned into something seemingly so well planned. Skills.


Lokey, Cheba and Nikill on their piece.


Another interlude, Felix giving a talk about his book (now just weeks away). Top talk, fascinating historical take on the whole graf thing, and got into a proper debate at the end. Was amused to wander outside afterwards and hear students debating it – “Yeah, but graffiti’s just a necessary and inevitable symptom of our capitalist society”.

I kid you not.


Nikill and Cheba getting towards the end of the collaborative piece.


Inkie’s piece finished.


Next to Boswell’s


This was a nice touch, short biographies of various artists posted up around the venue, good idea.


All the pieces finished, really good work, interesting to see what happens when people have more space and calm that at Weapon of Choice.


The finished Art Tart piece of the pieces as well


This piece was up in all its glory finally too, done for the fresher’s fair at UWE last year. Feek, Seza and Sickboy. Bloody huge it is.


Feek’s side…


…with Seza in the middle…


…and Sickboy at the other end.


So, wasn’t just the stuff in the evening in the bar, there’d been loads of painting going on outside during the day too.  Billy Stencils at this end…


…next to a pretty good piece…


and another here.


Inkie’s piece out here was sick.


Next to Cheba, Lokey and Nikill, this time with the spray paint and colour.


More Billy Stencil and some work by a UWE student.


Sepr had been here painting in the day too, shame he wasn’t there in the evening too.


Ryda and Reaf there too which was as cool as it wasn’t on the bill.


This was really tidy though. You know when you can sense from a piece that the people in it are really putting everything into it, well, got that from this one, a burner from a collective of UWE students.


On the other hand, the Art Tart outside. It’s not up to this blog to claim that someone’s biting someone else’s work, least of all Nick Walkers.


But there you are.


Top night though, organisers had noticeably put a huge amount of work into planning and running it, and had brought in a really friendly crowd, so should be run again really, perhaps somewhere a little more accessible.

Would save a bus journey home with UWE Freshers throwing up all over bus seats for one.
