Hello lovely people! If you follow my inane ramblings on my Twitter of Facebook pages you'll know all about this already, but if you don't, you're in for a treat. Last Friday I few out to the Gambia to spend just under 3 weeks curating and taking part in a brand new arts project we've named Wide Open Walls. I've managed to assemble a small team of incredible artists who will join me out there to transform the village of Kubuneh with paint in the hope of increasing tourism to help bring prosperity and sustainability to the area. Joining me out there for this amazing project will be:
As you can see, this is something that should be noticed, talked about and followed. Please check out theWide Open Walls blogfor the full lowdown on the project and the incredible work that has already been achieved by the man behind W.O.W, Lawrence Williams, and his uncle and business partner James English.
The blog will, depending on the reliability of the internet access out there, be updated daily with info as well as photos from the artists and acclaimed street art photographer Ian Cox from Wallkandy. We also have aFacebook page that you can jointo help spread the word and support this amazing project.
BROOKLYNITE SHOW NOW OVER
My solo show at Brooklynite Gallery in NYC has come to an end, awww booo. Massive thanks to Rae and Hope from the Gallery, my main man Mark fromwww.up-the-arts.comfor his usual graft and good company and to EVERYONE who came to look at the work and have a great time at the opening. There are still a few original paintings available as well as Firestarter, a limited edition 7 colour screen print. There will also be a hand finished edition of 10 Firestarters available as soon as I get back from Africa.
URBAN ART - FROM WALLS TO STUDIOS
October 16th sees the opening of a great new show at Addict Galerie in Paris. 'Urban Art - From Walls To Studios' celebrates the work of artists who after making a name for themselves painting outside, are now equally as successful carving a career from producing works to be displayed on the other side of the wall. I'm honoured to be sharing the bill with legends such as Doze Green, Herakut and Nick Walker to name just a few. You can find out morehere.
As soon as I get back from Africa, I'll be moving forward with the next screen print release which will be Icarus. More news on this will released soon. I'll also be adding lots of new content to my new look websitehttp://eelus.com/, including limited quality photographic prints and affordable doodles. I'll also be working on getting issue 1 of my magazine ready for a Christmas release, featuring a lovely screen printed cover, hand printed mini prints, photography, drawings, writings, stickers and anything else I can squeeze into the packet.
Speaking of the website, the shop section is still being worked on back in the lab, so if anything on there catches your eye, until the payment system is plugged in you need to just drop me an email and I'll get you sorted.
Thanks for reading and PLEASE don't forget to check out theW.O.W blogandFacebook pageand help us by getting behind this project.
