Paris At Park Row Mack Daddys

Mack Daddys has long been known for its artwork inside the shops from some of Bristol’s best. Now Paris has taken the Park Row one to the outside as well with this fine work…

It’s a pretty colourless area round there really, so nice to see this makes a nice change. Still love them letters with landscapes in too.

Paris And Xenz – Badverts For Hire

This just in from two gentlemen of the TCF. Mess with them, and they’ll let people know. First target, Stokes Croft, where the word of the badvert is straightforward to spread.

badVERTS

Here’s the official statement.

We warned the guy in so called “Best” Supermarket on Stokes Croft that if he ripped us off with a 68p Wispa we would write it on a wall…..

Paris & Xenz, 2009

The guy with an expensive Wispa though may have started a new public service. The statement goes on to say…

Got a gripe?, Been ripped off ? We can help, big words for hire, coming to a wall near you soon, next target, those sharks in Cartridge world….

If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire, the Badvert team.

An hour or so ago the Paris pieces on Hillgrove Street were painted over. All sorts going on apparently, proper permission not sorted out, owner annoyed, Police get involved, all seems to have ended ok though.

Miss B has the more of the story.

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.

Paris’s Pop Stop

paris pop stop

Fun night on Thursday, down at Paris’s Pop Stop down on the Gloucester Road. The old Friend and Co Gallery’s only a small place obviously, but it was really interesting to see a wide selection of Paris’s work. Bit of a mix really, from these isometric marker pen drawings….

…to these oil and acrylic ones…

…to this old one from back in 2001.

Nothing priced up, not about the selling really, but one of the most interesting bits was Paris digging in the crates for old photos, like these three, the first piece done by Paris and Xenz in 1988, the first Fantastic Super Heroes piece done in Bristol in 1997, and the first TCF piece done, back  in 1990. You can’t really see them from this photo, go in and see them yourself.

Outside, Paris was selling various things, stickers and fanzines of old photos. There’s going to be quite a few of them done in the future, bringing back the way graf used to be shared and communicated with people before the interweb turned up. Well worth getting your hands  them if you can, they’re proper little history books.

It’s going to be there for a bit, it’s open today in fact, and there will be other shows popping up in the future, so keep an eye on the blog for it all

Paris presents “Pop-Stop”

Paris pop stop 1

Here’s a cool idea from Paris, starting this Thursday at the (old) Friend and Co Gallery on Gloucester Road. The man himself explains it better than we ever could…

The “Pop Stop” is a unique experience, fusing the British tradition of the Jumble sale, with the art shows of New York in the 70’s and early 80’s. Taking a lead from the Fun gallery, Fashion Moda and of course Kieth Harings little shop….

This is a case of bringing art to the people. The “Pop stop” will appear at random all around bristol over the coming months.
I’ll post the chosen locations on the Pop-Stop Blog-  http://parispopstop.blogspot.com/ – and there might even be a chance for Pop-Stop online shopping in the future…who knows.

Some of the goodies available at the Pop-Stop are….. hand made stickers, hand made books, mini prints, tee’s, graff mags ,cards, pens , trinkets and any other tat I can get my hands on…

All this and more!- delivered on a plate with a Micro-retrospective of my best paintings to-date.. too-boot.

Join me between 5pm-9pm on Thursday the 8th October, for late night “Poppin”, and enjoy cider based refreshments and other goodies too.

Sounds ace, that’s another blog for your bookmarks then.

Incidentally, Paris has been having a paint of the Friend and Co spot in the last couple of weeks, meant to link to the photos over on their blog the other week, so if you’ve not seen them yet, check them out here.
