Open Studio and Liz Clayton

I have recently been told about an open studio event in Bristol event details shown above. This was recommended to me by Liz Clayton who is an illustrator based at the studio. Will be well worth going to get a look at a rarely seen hub of creativity in Bristol.

Alex Turvey

Alex Turvey is described as a director, designer and illustrator and is definitely a man of talent. I really love his ostentatious and imaginative worlds, particularly in his often odd music videos.

Hong Chun Zhang

Just found Hong Chun Zhang through FFFFOUND. I really love the photographic style of drawing found in her work. As well as her hair drawings her Two Cultures series of paintings is also very interesting.

Sage Vaughn

I first found Sage Vaughn's work when watching the video for NASA Way Down, I really loved the birds in the video and he has a lot of equally interesting work here.

Jamie Brown

Just found the work of Jamie Brown, a really nice mix of painting, illustration and design.

Hattie Newman

Hattie Newman was also on my art foundation course at UWE and has done very well since specialising in set design and model making (particularly in paper). Her work is very varied and beautiful.

Just found this talented young graffiti artist based in Brighton, I think she is now 12. Her flickr is well worth checking out for her bright engaging style of work also featuring the work of her younger sister.

We've been told...

I found this note in the centre of Bristol, I hope they got the money that they were owed.

Spencer Tunick

I have been following Spencer Tunick's work with some interest. His photos of assembled nude groups of people don't always work but when they are simple and interact well with the environment they are in they can be very beautiful.

Dave Bain

A really talented illustrator with an eclectic range of styles. More of his work can be found here.

Brad Downey

Just found this artist on the Creative Review blog. He was being featured for his stripping away of fifteen years worth of graffiti on a wall of fame in Vienna. He has also created a lot of other interesting pieces simply by playfully interacting with the urban environment, see his website for more.

Max F (Maxime Francout)

Another nice illustrator I just discovered, a nice cheery tshirt for this grey day!

Holga and Justin Quinnell

I have just been given a Holga camera for one of my birthday presents and I am pretty excited about using it! I think it may be similar to a pinhole camera which takes me back to my art foundation days when we had an excellent tutorial from Bristol based pinhole photographer Justin Quinnell.

Diane Arbus

A fascinating photographer with a fascinating story, when I saw her exhibition at the Cardiff Museum and Art Gallery this was perhaps the photo that struck me most.

Chloe Early

I signed up to the Corey Helford newsletter and was pretty intrigued by their forthcoming show featuring Chloe Early. I really love the style of her work with the strong use of paint and colour. She studied in Dublin and has since been exhibiting her work on a world wide basis.

The Glue Society

I saw this image (or one like it) in Creative Review a couple of years ago and it became one of my favourite ideas ever. It was created by The Glue Society based in Sydney and New York and made up of collaborators in various disciplines. The website is very engaging to use and their work is always intriguing and original. They also received a lot of press for their 'satellite google maps' of what some well known biblical scenes might have looked like.

New York based artist Swoon specialises in beautiful intrically cut paper pieces which generally depict people she knows, although often fragile her pieces are made even more precious by their short lifespan.

Centrespace Distance Travelled Exhibition

This finishes tomorrow at 4pm and although I haven't seen it myself I have been told this collaborative exhibition is well worth a look.

Takashi Murakami

I really like the work of Takashi Murakami who has been able to take over parts of the Palace of Versailles just outside of Paris. There is quite an interesting juxtaposition between his work and the regal surroundings.

Ron Mueck

I think it was in March when I saw Ron Mueck's exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. There were only a couple of his pieces including the one above of the spooning couple but I really loved the sense of intimacy and overbearing on this scene which is very small in scale. Mueck started as a prop maker and model maker for TV and film before moving into fine art, his pieces are really worth seeing at their scale to get a full sense of his work.
