Back Round Moon Street

Love Moon Street as ever, it’s been the home of lots of work for years and years now, so given it’s been a while, it seemed worth an update of what’s round there at the mo…

Some bits haven’t changed obviously, so not going to blog the lot, but this chap’s always jolly…

…a panda stencil by one of the alleys under fashionable 51 02. Just for those who come across these posts through predictable google searches, it’s not by Banksy.

Round the corner a bit, the wall of the Full Moon’s been filling up steadily for a year or so now. Some bits have been there for yonks obviously, the SPQR spaceman and the Awkward work…

But these BS51 pieces are new-ish…

…nice to see some more freehand ishwork from the chap for a change.

This Fake stencil’s been blogged before, but here’s a close up anyway.

Bit further along, the donkeys everyone photographs.

Yep.

Round the corner up Moon Street, the massive Burning Candy production, as painted during the filming of ‘Tags to Riches’ is still holding up well, looks all the better for some tidy 3Dom work next to it.

A comment on getting up for school?

Not completely new but still looking pretty fresh further up the street…

..nice to see another rendering of that bunny you see about.

This door must have a good few layers of history on it under there, now a nice sky scene…

…no?

Finally, os these were done a short while after the main painting, not sure the Lokey and Haka work on Lakota got put up on here in the end. So here they are for the record…

…Haka…

… and good Mr Lokey.

Stokes Croft China And Paint Experiment

When the flyer and the email for this came around, it looked like the sort of thing that might be a bit far out of the scope of the blog, despite it being put on by the PRSC folks.

As it turned out though, the Stokes Croft China show, which opened at the PRSC shop on Jamaica Street on Friday night, is actually pretty interesting.

Chris Chalkley of PRSC’s background is in the china and pottery trade, so it’s a natural progression for Stokes Croft China to be launched, a range of china and crockery items, all printed with different things related to the graf and arty goings on around Stokes Croft.

Here’s some of what’s there.

A huge load of ‘I love’ mugs…

With some familiar names.

Lots of other mugs too with images of work from around Stokes Croft over the last few years. Here’s some Dan ones…

…and this one, one of this blog’s personal Stokes Croft favourites from the last few years.

It’s not just mugs, why not treat yourself to a new, erm, toilet?

Or perhaps a Boswell plate?

The whole show’s properly presented, in display cabinets bought from Royal Worcester when it had a closing sale from a factory no less.

Here’s the logos…

…had thought thought put into them, a crown with ‘SCC’ for Stokes Croft China above.

It’s an interesting take on the work going on round Stokes Croft, and on until Christmas Eve, so have a wander down and judge for yourself if they’re fit to use the crown.

Incidentally, next weekend, there’s another ‘paint experiement’ going on. Must be 18 months or so ago now that Jamaica Street has a load of boards on it in front of the hostel with small pieces painted by lots of different folk. There’s going to be another one on the 5th and 6th December, here’s the idea.

Boards, canvas and other surfaces of various sizes will be provided and attached to the P.R.S.C’s Jamaica Street fence in Stokes Croft. Some painting materials will also be available – though contributions will be welcome – and anyone will be free to make an artwork on the 5th and 6th of December, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

After that, the works will remain on the Jamaica Street wall until sold, and as gaps appear, new boards will go up for painting.

So, if you’re looking for somewhere for a quick paint, wander down…

Get Dring Mobile – The Photos

Top night down at Paintworks last night for the Get Dring Mobile auction, some great live painting outside, great music and a whole lot of bidding for a great guy. Well, bidding for art to raise money for a great guy, Mike himself of course not being for sale.

It was interesting to see how the bidding went. Some pieces were an absolute steal, other went for far more than you would ever have thought. As a wise man put it last night, ‘a picture’s only worth what someone is willing to pay for it’. Stencil work still seems to be very much in fashion with the buyerati, wonder how much longer that will last.

In total, the auction raised something like £24,500, before you count in the bar receipts, pieces that sold outside of the auction and all sorts. So well on the way to getting Mike’s car sorted then, awesome stuff.

There’s more to come still too, lots of pieces left to be sold on Ebay very soon, including a lovely Will Barras that lots of people were coveting last night, so keep an eye out.

Here’s some photos from it all then, the live painting as it went along, and the works inside the auction as well.

Get Dring Mobile – More Details

get dring mobile paris logo1

For those who don’t know about it, there’s background on the Get Dring Mobile auction coming up here. But for those who do, more details are now out about what’s going to be going on in a couple of weeks time. Here’s the chat…

The doors will be open from 11am to 9pm on Wednesday for a full days viewing of the works going under the hammer. Thursday will be a busy day with the opportunity for further viewing from 12pm.

There will be live painting by Mr Jago, Inkie, Lokey, Felix, Eelus, Xenz, Paris, Boswell, Vermin, Milk and Dora starting at 4pm and the auction including lots by Guy Denning, Pam Glew, Rowdy, Ian Francis and Nick Walker to name but a few, will commence at 7pm.

The work can be viewed on line at Dreweatts, www.dnfa.com and at www.art-el.co.uk. Bidding can be made in person or live online at http://www.the-saleroom.com on the evening, commission bids will be taken with valid credit/debit card details prior to the event. If you wish to make a commission bid and to register for bidding please contact The GDM team on 07789 971273 or e-mail getdringmobile@live.co.uk.

The event will also include a fine art ‘mystery’ postcard sale featuring work from award winning artists from all over the world, many of which have shown in the BP portrait awards and with some having work in the National Portrait Gallery their work usually thousands. This sale therefore gives people the opportunity to purchase a piece of art that would usually cost a small fortune, for just £50.

We are also running a raffle to win a portrait painted by Vincent Brown, a multi award winning portrait and figurative artist from Bristol. Tickets will be available at the event and are also available now via the GDM blog at http://getdringmobile.wordpress.com. For more information about Vincent Brown and to see examples of his amazing work please visit his web-site at http://www.vincentbrown.co.uk.

Vince himself will be attending the event and will determine the winner of our very own portrait competition. We hope to see lots of you there, with live painting, music, beer and curry this promises to be a great night.

It does indeed.

Bower Ashton Paint Jam Next Tuesday

Not a lot of people know, but Bower Ashton campus of UWE has a fair old history in the world of Bristol graffiti. Lots of well known writers have passed through its doors over the last few years, in fact for some it’s the reason they came to Bristol in the first place. Well, if not the reason, then perhaps the justification…

Just one example of it, courtesy of Neil, the back wall of the bar there painted by Sickboy back in 2000 or so. Early as you like.

So, from the good people that brought you the ‘Not Just Banksy’ event a while back, and co-inciding with Fresher’s Week, a large paint jam’s been organised down there for next Tuesday (22nd September). Here’s the chat;

Bower Ashton Paint Jam

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!
