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
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.
It’s exciting times for Clumsy! I have some work in an exhibition called Tiki Today at 20:21 in Scunthorpe. And I am now just finalising my work for another group show at the same gallery, Art with A Pulse II. It runs from 29 May – 4 September 2010. There’s going to be a special Tiki/Tattoo themed day of celebration too, on the 5th of June. (more info here) and I will be painting live on the day. I will post more details about that as and when I get them! In the meantime, here are some piccies of one of my pieces I have done for the exhibition, “You Can’t Win”. Enjoy!
