Stuff in October

Looks like it’s going to be a busy month for art shows. I guess as autumn sets in people naturally focus more on indoor activities. So here’s what there is to look forward to. No doubt something will tickle your fancy.

Cloud Cuckoo Land

Xenz painting

British artist and longtime Bristol-dweller, Xenz, has a major new solo show opening in London next month. It’s entitled Cloud Cuckoo Land and features a body of work created over the last two years.


‘Day of the Dead’ exhibition

Day of the dead exhibition

House of Paper presents an exhibition of illustrations, paintings, photography and 3d work from international and local artists celebrating Mexico’s traditional ’Day of the Dead’.

Although not a street-art-centric exhibition, it does feature a few artists involved in street-level stuff. Notably French artist Kashink and Bristol-based Haka. That aside, it is well worth checking out. The exhibition opened last night (27th October) and runs until the 6th November.

Petro show through window

We are a lucky bunch in Bristol, I mean at least for those interested in street/urban/graffiti art, because not only do we have an abundance of top notch art in our streets, but we also have some great shows. The latest one of these opened the other week (20th Nov) at the Friends & Co gallery on Park Row and featured the work of London-old-school-writer Petro.

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.
