Stanley Donwood - Weapon of Choice

Kudos to the Weapon of Choice gallery for getting a bit of a name interesting artist. Stanley Donwood is Radiohead's resident artist.  From July 10 - August 9 - St Michaels Hill, Bristol.

I'm a particular fan of the Thom Yorke 'eraser' cover, which is a linocut with a stock image.

Graffiti Stencil - Making and Doing

A couple of videos have popped up on the t'internet in the last couple of days about how graff artists work, or the process they use.  The Boxi one is quite wonderful, and the divine Obey boy Sheperd Fairey is just.....

Really loving this guys work - Julian Kimmings (much better in the flesh).

Banksy - Summer Exhibition Location ?

This is looking like a strong contender for the Banksy Exhibition

Bristol Museum (top of Park Street) - Rumour has it that the preview is Friday 12th and it starts Saturday 13th June.
(thanks to bristolurbanart for the tip)

*update* from a sneaky pic I've just seen, it's looking like it's a retrospective.

Spotted Cow Show - Tonight

And still the graff goes on.

Hopefully get to post my UPfest pix in the next couple of days.

Still waiting on an update for the Banksy exhib - my theory is it's in Weston! Spray them donkeys up!

Why didn't I think of that - grrr

From the ever cool, CoolHuntingblog.

Designed by Don't Feed The Swedes to be shown at the up and coming Berlin Design festival.  So jealous, grrrr.

And incidentally, Bristol seems to have turned into Graffworld, with Stokes Croft being at the epicenter (artwork changing daily mainly thanks to the PRSC).  This weekend we'll see Upfest turning heads at the Tobacco Factory, Dave Whittle opening night tonight, at Friend & CoWeapon of Choice 2nd exhibition starting next weekend, the Spotted Cow (pub) evening of graff in the garden on 11 June, and a rumoured Banksy exhibition heading this way called 'Homecoming'.

And not forgetting Bearpit this Saturday too.
