Sleight of Hand Opens

Last Friday we opened Sleight of Hand, an eclectic group show from an international collection of artists. You can view all of the artwork and photos from the opening here. And all the artwork still available can be bought here. Its a cracker of a show, hope to see you down here before the 4th of June when it closes. Cheers to everyone who made it down for the opening.

Opening Fri 7th- Be There!

Watching the news now, not feeling great, things not looking too rosey!
But then I look at this piece by Nylon and I feel cheery again! What a cracker!
This piece and lots more to brighten your weekend in Sleight of Hand, opens this Friday night 7-10pm. Come down, see the great artwork, have a beer and check out Mike Inglis's quality paste ups. AddFuelToTheFire, Angelique Houtkamp, Jacob Smith, Mike Egan, Microbo, Mr Jago, Mike Inglis, Phil Ashcroft, Vinnie Nylon.



Sleight of Hand in just a week!

“Sleight of Hand” is a group exhibition that will open on the 7th of May, 7-10pm. The exhibition will be an eclectic one, pulling together artists that come from very different backgrounds and with different styles from all over the world.

Showing is Bristol based, world famous street artist, Mr Jago, now creating vibrant, organic, abstract paintings. These will sit well alongside another international exhibitor, Phil Ashcroft’s angular, graphic paintings. Juxtaposing these styles will be works from the female Sicilian street artist, Microbo, her works a mash of organic, intertwining shapes in pastel colours.

Scottish street artist, Mike Inglis’ simple figurative pieces that explore emotions and rituals that surround grief, death and loss will hang next to the works of ex-funeral home embalmer, and Michigan based artist, Mike Egan’s Southern American inspired paintings with prints from world renowned Dutch tattoo artist, Angelique Houtkamp with their typical, dark yet feminine imagery.

The last three artists could each be classed as Pop artists, all flirting with pop culture, poking fun at or expressing admiration for iconic symbols and imagery within their work. Paintings from Scottish painter Jacob Smith will hang with prints from Portuguese illustrator, AddFuelToTheFire and paintings from prolific street and graphic artist, Vinnie Nylon*.

Check out the artist's artwork here.
