Yup,yup,yup. It’s all over. I know. It comes, it goes. In a flash. Just like that.
I must apologise to anybody who comes to my blog for my images as I have been soooooo busy thru December that I didn’t get to post the last few Grafik Advents.
Here they are for you now… For the full set click here
As usual for December it is very cold. Fingers have almost dropped off. Rain is here today and may stop play….Booo!!
Here’s the last few days
More to come and don’t forget to come in to the Art Schism shop at 87 Gloucester Rd, Brighton BN1 4AP to see more of my artwork for sale as well as other great artists and makers.
My good friend Dee lives down the road from these boxes and suggested that I painted a Yeti on them.
So I did.
Yes, yes. It’s back. The Grafik Advent hosted by me, Sinna One.
It’s flipping freezing out there at the moment, but has that stopped me?
My paint stained fingers have taking such a cold bashing in the last five days and they shall continue to do so until the advent is up. So here are the first few and expect to see more. Every day. Watch this space….
I must start by apologising for my horrendous lack of posts in recent weeks. I have been up to my eyeballs in projects and organising stuff that i just haven’t had the time to even blink at my wordpress.
Right then, here is something that I’ve been involved with in the last week and that is the launch of a new pop up shop, just in time for December. If you are in Brighton this month then you should definitely come down and check it out.
Showing work from over 20 artists, we have an amazing array of arts and crafts that you wont find many other places this December.
With great bargains on artwork from Snub23, MNKY, Jemma Treweek, Ed Tucker, Sinna One, Petting Zoo, Pinky, 3 Pigeons,Mazcan, Foundry, Suzi Horn, LaFFancy, T[ERROR]ist, Petrusco’s Eye and many more.
You really can’t go wrong with purchases from this shop. And not only that but the majority of artists have submitted a one colour design for a screen print which you can get exclusively in store and see it being printed in front of your very eyes on to tee shirts and paper!!
We are open from the 1st Dec until the 24th. Mon- Sat 10am – 7pm Sun 11am – 5pm.
For more info and updates go to the Art Schism Facebook.
Wow!! 2012. Here we are. What a great end to 2011 and what a great year for me in respect of some great projects. I hope that 2012 brings even more brilliant opportunities.
At the end of 2011, as you all know, I started painting the media junction boxes around Brighton. This then evolved in to the Grafik Advent project for Dec.
The month saw varied artworks on green boxes all around Brighton from myself and other Grafik Warfare members.
The project was a success, and I now have my work cut out for me and the crew in the next week or so to cover all the Christmas works up. The results of which will be appearing on here.
In the meantime here are a great selection of shots, captured by the brilliant 4FOOT2. He has a great passion for photographing street art and graffiti and spends a good deal of time finding the best spots and getting the best shots. You can see more of his work on his Flickr – Here.
Artists work shown – Sinna One, SNUB 23, Hipster, REQ1, Stink Like Dog. Many thanks to 4FOOT2.
So that’s it. We reach the end of the Grafik Advent project. It’s been fun. It’s been a challenge. there have been great comments and smiles. There have been nasty comments and bad vibes. I’m glad I did it and got others involved. Brighton now has some great art on boxes.
Watch this space for all the pics and more great artwork for the New Year.
Todays installment is a slightly bigger display. Painted as part of the Fresh St. Art project with help from EZ.
So only one day left. The project draws to a close and it has been awesome to see so many diverse images go up. Thanks to all on the project. I had hoped for something grand for the finale, however due to rainy weather was unable to do this.
Anyway, Happy Christmas. I hope that you get all that you wish for.
Another clear and sunny day in Dec. I should be out getting my last minute Christmas shopping done, but no. Dashed out this morning to paint no. 22 on the grafik Advent. Kept it nice and quick and a new personal best. Just over 30mins on this one and lots of nice comments by people on their way to work.
So we are rolling to the end of the Grafik Advent with only 4 days to go until Christmas. Lots more boxes have appeared around Brighton and unfortunately I have broken my camera and my phone so it is getting difficult to log them all. Not to worry though. Here are 2 more for ya.
First up, is another great colourful box by Snub23. I’m digging the white highlights on this, making it look like it has a layer of snow on the letters.
Then a quick entry from myself today. Done as part of the Fresh St.Art project today, with assistance from Sharon.
