Stuart Haygarth

Stuart Haygarth specialises in finding new uses for old things, I really love the way he creates such beautiful decorative items out of what other people consider waste.

Is a Brooklyn based collective whose work can be found all across the world, prominent features include collage and the use of massively repeated logos and icons. I love the multi layered pieces such as the one above. They have also worked on much more ambitious pieces such as a full scale temple in Portugal, more of their varied work can be found here.

Sinead Finnegan

At the North Bristol Art Trail there was some good work and very hospitable people, I especially liked the embroidery work of Sinead Finnegan.

Mat Collishaw

I was just having a flick through the Evening Standard my sister picked up in London yesterday and I was attracted by the story about Mat Collishaw's Magic Lantern installation at the V&A. Upon having a look at his website I found that there was a lot of good (and sometimes challenging) work, combining sculpture, animals and photography.

North Bristol Artists Trail 2010

I plan to be having a look at a few venues on the North Bristol artists trail today which can be found on the map above. For more information have a look at the website.

Emil Kosak

I love the work of Emil Kosak originally from Denmark and now working from Barcelona. His work is deceptively simple yet always engaging.

Gregory Crewdson

Gregory Crewdson takes eerie photos like frozen stage sets showing a darker side to the 'American Dream'.

Lynn Imperatore

Another persons work that I admired at the Open Studios was Lynn Imperatore's I particularly liked her drawings and paintings of unmade and crumpled beds.

Harriet White

At the open studios another persons work that I was really impressed by was that of Harriet White whose large scale portrait paintings are both striking and beautiful. They are almost photographic in quality but are somehow even better than this medium.

Sophie Woodrow

I have just returned from the BV Open studios that I posted about a while ago, it was really interesting both from the chance to look at artists spaces and also the work. I really liked the ceramic creatures made by Sophie Woodrow, more of which can be seen here.

Berlin Graffiti

A few photos of some graffiti I saw over the weekend in Berlin.


Just found this amazing interactive arts collective called Seeper. They have created some fantastic projections and light displays onto buildings. Evan Grant is one of the key players in the group and it is definitely worth checking out the work in video form on his website!

Jonathan Farr

I have just got back from the open day at Hamilton House which seemed very busy and was interesting especially to get a look at the artists spaces on the upper floors. I was particularly impressed by the work of Jonathan Farr, his illustrations of cities are incredibly beautiful.

Hamilton House Open Day

Hamilton House in Bristol is today holding an open day which could be well worth a visit as it is completely free and packed with fun activities. Get down to Stokes Croft before 6pm today to have a look!

Julia Schonlau

Just found the work of Julia Schonlau (also known as Juju's Delivery). She is based in Berlin and has a really friendly, warm style of illustration which often hides a slightly darker message.

Unfortunately I can't seem to find a website for ROA but there is this Flickr pool with a variety of his pieces. He was in the headlines last week also for Hackney councils decision to order the removal of one of his pieces which I think is a shame.
