New Xenz Work…

Wouldn’t normally blog this sort of thing, but this press release was a classic. Who knew that Xenz had an almost eidetic ability? Probably as many as those who know what it means. Here’s the rest…

Known as the ‘Monet of graffiti’, Xenz demonstrates an almost eidetic ability, so extraordinary is the cohesion between his mind, memory and spray can. His innovations in the study of aerosol art allow this influential artist to walk up to a wall or canvas and paint an epic landscape from his imagination. Combining futuristic fantasy with strong architectural and soft natural dreamscapes, the graffiti scion uses the spray can to capture fragments of memory and ever-changing subject matter, often drawn from the natural world.

This is nice though, something that hadn’t been shouted about too much before…

“If I can create awareness of the natural world through this urban art form known as graffiti then I’m happy. I donate a percentage of money made from my bird paintings to the RSPB. It’s not all about darkness and anger; sometimes it’s nice to be nice, and besides, graffiti originates from caves as well as subways.”

Anyway, new work out now, though the website’s down so you have to email. Here’s some snaps of stuff that have been sent over though, lovely as ever.

Bristol Graffiti Christmas Cards

Just an annual reminder for you. If you’re in need of Christmas cards this year, then you could do far worse than pick up some Bristol Graffiti cards from Temwa. They’re the same as last year, but still pretty cool, unique cards by the TCF, specifically Aji, Seza, Eko, Xenz and Ziml.

Only a fiver per pack, and all proceeds go to the top folks at Temwa to make the world a better place.

Friend and Co Christmas Show

Hope you’ve not got too much planned for the 11th of December, as there’s a lot on that night, here and abroad.

One you really shouldn’t miss though is the Friend and Co Christmas show, with another top line up and a good mix of people from Bristol and further afield. Namely, for those with screen readers;

Asbestos, China Mike, Dora, Eelus, Eine, Inkie, Kid Acne, Milk, Miss Bugs, Mr Jago, Mudwig, Nylon, Petro, Richt, Rowdy, Russel Maurice, Will Barras, Xenz and 45RPM.

Put all that lot together with the usual Friend and Co hospitality and fun crowd, and you’ve got something well worth a wander along to.In fact, you could do a crawl from the Beezer show, through Friend and Co and on to Weapon of Choice all on the same evening, with barely a hill encountered.

Alternatively, if you can’t make it on the night, it’s on til Christmas eve, so plenty of time to accidentally wander past it whilst the Mrs is trying to make you go Christmas shopping.

Things Abroad

This blog’s about Bristol, so is usually quite parochial in its view that abroad is pretty much anything outside of Bristol, although Somerset and places in that direction are certainly allied nations.

But this time, there’s some stuff going on that really is abroad as most people think of it.

(click to read it)

First up, Richt’s landed himself a show in Amsterdam. Nice work if you can get it, and judging from his recent work it should be a nice show too. Here’s the flyer in case you fancy a wander over to it, it’s only a hundred quid on Easyjet, and there’s worse places to be during the winter.

Meanwhile, if you fancy somewhere a bit warmer and more refined, over in at the Bristol-Lisboa Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal, FLX is curating a show if Bristol Street Art, if google’s translation of portugese is to be believed. The show opened back on the 7th November, and runs for ages, through to the 20th February 2010.

There are some photos of the show and the pieces in it over on the gallery website, including Xenz, Will Barras, Mag1c, FLX, Cyclops and Mr Jago.Very nice work from all of them in there, have a dig around.

A bit less abroad, over on Guernsey, it looks like the Centrefold Gallery run by the Readerswives Collective is sadly closing in the new year. The Collective’s carrying on, but since the gallery’s going, there’s an ‘everything must go’ sale down at the gallery on the month’s busiest night for this sort of thing, 11th December.

More details over on the Facebook, it was a nice little gallery, so will be interesting to see what the chaps get up to next!

Friend And Co Show Photos

So then, as promised yesterday, here’s some photos of what’s in the Friend and Co show in their new gallery, opening as this post goes live. These photos are from yesterday, so you’ll have to get down there to see the pieces in situ, including the Will Barras, along with all the prints too. But here’s a taste if you want to check it out from the comfort of home first.
