Really enjoyed visiting Grayson Perry’s Art Club Exhibition at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery which opened last week. The Channel 4 show was great to watch during lockdowns and it was lovely to see all the works featured up close. Also saw Banksy’s stencil that he used for his Reading Prison piece which he’s now apparently planning to sell to turn the prison into an arts venue.
Celebrity artists involved in the exhibition include Grayson Perry (obviously), his wife Philippa, Anneka Rice, Jane Seymour, Lianne La Havas, Lucy Sparrow, Mawaan Rizwan, Russell Tovey, Sue Perkins and Tom Allen. The exhibition is running until September 2022 and you can buy tickets on the museum website here. Some photos from the show here:
Brand new! I've just produced a brand new jigsaw puzzle of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset. It features the Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier. Can you spot the little reference to street artist Banksy's Dismaland, which was held in the nearby Tropicana?
The puzzle (produced by Ravensburger) has limited availability.
Can be bought on my Etsy shop (where I'm currently offering 12% off when 2 or more items are bought). And it;'s available as a card too!
'Tis the season to be spray painting?
I'm pleased to reveal my brand new street art / graffiti themed Christmas card for 2020 -- featuring Santa Claus doing a 'Banksy' (or is Banksy actually doing a Father Christmas?!?) and wishing everyone a merry Christmas in an undetermined location.
Of course, he's using eco-friendly spray paints:
It's inspired by my husband who's taken me to many street art events, festivals and shows over the last few years -- in London, Bristol's annual street art festival UpFest, Banksy's "Banksy versus Bristol Museum," his amazing "Dismaland" at the old Tropicana swimming complex in Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, for which we even managed to get tickets to the grand finale Masked Ball!
The cards are made from thick recycled paper, the envelopes are from recycled materials and they are packed for delivery in compostable bags.
