Photos from Nikill's solo show at the WoC gallery

Crowd at Nikill solo show

A few photos from the opening night of Nikill’s solo show at the Weapon of Choice gallery, which runs until Sunday 6 December.


Burning Candy opening night at the Emporium

Rowdy's inflatable croc

Last night (not coincidentally Guy Fawkes night) saw the opening of Burning Candy’s show at apparently their favourite gallery in Bristol, the Emporium. This is no doubt because they have free rein over the whole building, including the roof, which is the perfect place to set off fireworks, hang an inflatable crocodile and drink a few Red Stripe.


Crazy Fools show at the Library Bar in Islington

Filthy Luker's green tenticles

Crazy Fools is a new online urban art gallery that deals almost exclusively in work by street artists from Bristol. This London show was an opportunity to present originals and prints by the likes of Banksy, Nick Walker, 3Dom, Levi C, Inkie and Ghostboy that form part of their collection.


Friend & Co gallery opening night on Park Row

Crowd inside Friend & Co gallery

The new Friend & Co gallery opened its doors on the 23 October with a group show featuring work from Eine, Mudwig, Xenz, Mr Jago and Will Barras. And although the weather wasn’t up to the occasion, the turn out was excellent. In fact the gallery was so packed it was almost difficult to properly view the artwork itself, which gives me a good excuse to go back on a quieter day.

Recent Banksy Graffiti pieces

Banksy Ieak Ikea graffiti

Although you can still find some of Banksy’s old pieces in Bristol today, it certainly isn’t the place to go to see new work by the graffiti artist extraordinaire, especially now that the ‘Bansky versus Bristol Museum’ exhibition has finished. No, it seems that Banksy has discovered new pastures in which to display his charactistic stencils, pastures called London, New York and even Mali believe it or not.

Here’s a run down of his recent work, starting with the above ‘Ikea Punk’ photo taken in Croydon by Romanywg.

Their latest exhibition, which has just finished, consisted of two parts. The first being the ‘People for places’ installation and the second ‘Emporium @ the Emporium’.
