Last weekend I headed down to Pontins Camber Sands for the Rhythm Riot weekender. I had been invited to their first ever Vintage Surf and Skate Expo to decorate a skate deck over the duration of the weekend. I’ve done plenty of live art at events like this, but this was special, as they gave me premission to do my wood burning thang! It was so much fun and the response from visitors to the show was really good! I hope I can do more events like this in the future. Here are some piccies from the weekend! Enjoy x
Last weekend was Kustom Kulture Blastoff, in Spalding. It was an excellent event with some amazing artists involved! This was the first one, and I hope this cool little event goes from strength to strength.
I feel a bit sad here at camp Clumsy. It’s the end of Summer, and a couple of events and exhibitions I was working towards have now been and gone! BUT! I have some exciting things lined up! Everything is all in the early stages, so i’m not going to say much at the moment, but watch this space!
In the meantime check out these photos from last weekend:
Well, it’s been three days and I have just about recovered from Puttiki! The art show was great, the people were friendly, the golf was er…challenging, and the cocktails were awesome! I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Sam (aka Los Furias Tiki) for all his hard work in putting the event together. And also a massive thanks to Kessie and Joe at Hunny Lu Lu’s for plying me with drinks and entertaining me whilst I propped up the bar! If you are ever in Hastings I can definatly recommend a visit there! I also have to announce that I am officially awful at Crazy Golf! Somehow I managed to come dead last in the golf tournament. The winner gets their name engraved on a fantastic Tiki trophy made by Trader Tark. So, for next year’s loser, I will be creating the Clumsy Loser Spoon. Watch this space! Till next year!
Enjoy the photos below!
It’s only a few weeks now till the UKs number one Tiki event, Puttiki! Find out more here!
Or visit the Tiki Central thread here!
And if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, here’s a sneaky peek of what I will be showing!
Papergirl is an art project from Berlin. In the style of American paper-boys, rolled art pieces will be distributed by bicycle in the streets of Manchester to random passers-by. With the support of Papergirl Berlin; it will consist of an exhibition, distribution of art and a party. Manchester will be Papergirl’s UK début. If you are an artist and would like to get involved and submit work for Papergirl, visit http://papergirlmanchester.tumblr.com/ for more info. You’ll also find an interview with little old me, and some of the other fabulous artists who are taking part!
I’ve had a couple of weeks off after a hectic May and June of art funtimes. Work has been pretty busy getting the Criminal Damage Autumn/Winter 10/11 collections together. It’s looking good!
Anyway, in the last week or so I have made some more arty plans for the summer.
The Art With a Pulse II show is still on at 20-21 Visual Art Center in Scunthorpe. You have untill the 3rd September to go and check it out.
In August I will be exhibiting at what is fast becoming the UK’s premier Tiki event, Puttiki, in Hastings. This is shaping up to be a very exciting weekend, with a Tiki Art show, Crazy Golf, and the UK premier of the film Tikimentary. And ofcourse lots of drinking!
I have recently started on a collaboration between Los Furias Tiki and myself. I’m not going to give too much away but it will make its debut on Pirate Day in August. And it might feature monkeys, of a sock variety. Hopefully this will be the first of many monkey related collaborations.
Also in August, I will be exhibiting one or two pieces at Tattoo Jam, in Doncaster, dabbling in a spot of live art, and franticly preparing for Kustom Kulture Blastoff, in September.
Here are some piccies from the Tattoo Luau event at the weekend. The whole event was loads of fun, and a big thanks goes out the Shell Lally from 20-21 Visual Arts Center for all her hard work. The mural painting was a great success with a collaboration between myself, Los Furias Tiki, and Kristian McLean. We had never worked together before, but I think it was one of my most successfull collaborations to date.
See what you think:
The finished results can be seen, along with the Art With A Pulse show, untill August, at 20-21 Visual Arts Center in Scunthorpe.
