Giles ‘Mutoid Robots’ Walker Presents: The Last Supper: Sat 24th March 11am – 4pm

This will be fascinating. Giles’ work has appeared around the world in galleries, muddy fields, on stages and on plinths – he was described by the recently deceased Oscar winning Director Ken Russel as a ‘genius’. This exhibition sees the sculptor create the Last Supper from robots rebuilt from refused appliances and materials only the Walker hawk eye could spot and assemble. Consider going to this show, it will augment your conversational ability one evening.

Taking Liberty’s is now open! Every Thursday to Saturday from 12 – 8pm for the next 2 weeks AND Sundays 12 – 6pm. A studio full of amazing stuff, made by some of the legendary Mutoid Waste Co, Mutate Britain, Treatmentrooms and Craftivist Collectives – just to name a few. Click here for a map.

Here’s the latest from Carrie ‘The Baroness’ Reichardt: This is an open studio, so we are selling direct from the artists and we are donating 10% from all sales to Reel News – a London based video activist collective. So come shop locally, shop ethically and support those who are risking their lives to bring you the truth from the front line. And do us a favour and tell your mates…..

Here here Baroness! Tell everyone – enemies and friends – there are some truly unique pieces to be picked up here. This work will be front and center in the world famous Bonhams ‘Art of the Revolution’ auction in 2014.

THERE”S EVEN STUFF FOR THE KIDS!

Village Underground Art Market THIS SUNDAY

Go to VU this Sunday if you wish to purchase Art for your friends and relatives this Christmas. Here’s what they have to say on the matter:

The main event is a Live Art Jam where we’re building a panel the same size as our Great Eastern Street wall. It will be painted live by wall artists including SHEONE, Will Barras, Toasters, Mr Jago and Pure Evil. The wall will then be broken into 50cm sq tiles and sold on the day.

Manning the market stalls are East London artists and collectives including Moniker Projects, Black Rat Press, Nelly Duff, Nobrow, Hang-Up Pictures, Beach London, Supreme Being and Scrawl Collective. They will be pushing a ton of limited edition Christmas goodies including prints, sketches, models, clothes and illustrations. The Hit and Run will also be doing live screen printing – just bring along clothes to customize.

In addition to this we’re holding a priceless art raffle for gifts that money can’t buy. Original artwork, prints, one off T-shirts and toys have been kindly donated by Eine, David Walker, Ronzo and many more.

We’ll get the customary vat of mulled wine and cider on the go with a bit of music and even some dancing. The event also doubles up as a thank you party for all the people who have contributed to our crowd funded art gallery: The Wall

Doors at midday until late at Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, EC2A, 3PQ. Donation £2, £1 concs and free for all people who have pledged towards the wall. For more information call 020 7422 7505.

Kick start the campaign for London’s biggest public Art Gallery

As per standard the Advertiserers are harpooning East London Street Art in a bid to make their brands look better than they really are. Who likes this? No one. Not because they spend their bucks on paying artists to paint. That’s fine. More because the work is, 99% of the time, so thin it’s transparent. You can see straight through it to a row of desks and Executives. We like it when there’s some element of the work that isn’t entirely intended to promote a financial transaction.

Speaking of transactions, and as luck would have it, our friends at Village Underground have an idea. A project. It’s called The Wall. With your help they want to make London’s biggest public art gallery. The best part is that you can be a part of it, have a look, donate a dollar, we have and we think you should consider it, perhaps even do it:

London Pleasure Gardens – 01.06.2012

The Bigfoot Project – Kathmandu, Nepal

The Bigfoot Project – Kathmandu, Nepal from bruno levy on Vimeo.

The walls of Kathmandu are filled with political slogans. This once peaceful and serene city has been bombarded in the last several years with red Devanagari script informing political parties the time and place of the next gathering. Although political graffiti has existed for quite some time in Nepal, it really became apparent when the Maoists came into Kathmandu after ten years of guerilla war. In what seemed like overnight, city walls, not really belonging to anyone but the city became covered with communist propaganda. In a country where politics seems to still agitate the lives of the people, the red letters became replaced with new parties and new messages but always reminding the people of trouble times. In the Summer of 2011, I decided to go spend some time in this capital to try to make these walls more colorful, give new life and hopefully inspire others to express themselves in ways that seem, to me, so natural. The BigFoot Sculpture was tied to a tree in Kathmandu Durbar Square, a world heritage site. It stayed there for over a week. Peoples reactions varied from simple shock to prayer and worship.

Special thanks to all the people that helped in making this project possible. Especially Chandan Shakya, who helped build the sculpture, paint, drove me around and without his hard work this project would have never existed.

Inti paints Paris properly

We’ve just received this video from our friends in Chile and it’s the business! Inti is a leading light and original article in the Chilean scene, and just the other day he brought this magnificent piece to a wall in Paris. We love the style, technique and execution:
