First Great Weston print from Let Them Hang

The great people at Let Them Hang are releasing a very special print edition to commemorate the Screen One printing house on Jamaica Steet and the dedicated work of the main print man there Paul.
The print looks excellent, a China Mike based drawing of the building covered in trademark images of work from the artists associated with LTH and Screen One. Those include: Dicy, Paris, Xenz, Sickboy, Mr. Jago, Nick Walker, Banksy, Ximl and Mau Mau. 100 of the edition have been further hand-finished by some of the artists and these went on sale last week at the Dreweatts Urban Art Auction Show in the Ultralounge at Selfridges. As blogged earlier, this is a touring show and is coming down here to Paintworks next week.
I got shown round Screen One last year when picking up a canvas. Really interestng place, very tall and narrow and covered floor to ceiling in printing paraphenalia and imagery. Bit of a treasure trove of Bristol steet art and print history really. I remember seeing Nick Walker's screens for the Moona Lisa print lying around, and some tasty Xenz APs whilst there.

Knowingly a bit late with this post but suffice to say that there are still 100 of these prints left in the edition (available from June 1st) and possibly a special 'Bristol' edition coming out for us folks here in Bristol which I might go for.

I'm so stoked with this.

Not a Penny..

Just back from the Not a Penny show in Bristol.

A Healthy queue pre-show. Amazingly it took about 30 seconds to filter in from where I was standing here. By which time the entire queue were at the sales desk ;) Nah, not quite..but nearly!

Immense. Sweet Tooth Oi Oi

Birthday for Cyclops?

C215 outside

I think SPQR must have had an incredible night. Fair to say the majority of the sales queue were for these and the print.

Bit of Rowdy - in memory of Mary's stall that used to be a few hundred yards up the road.

Canvas from Cept



Cyclops and Mau Mau

Mau Mau Bees and Banana

Mudwig and the masses






Khanage - one to watch.

Khanage again

The sketch from Gaia.


45 rpm

Two great canvasses from Will Barras.

Some Matt Small's


All in all another hit from the Steal From Work crew who have uncovered and given us another interesting and spacious venue. The highlights for me are the Sweet Tooths, they just dominate the room and grab your attention I think. The other highlight for me was the serious paintwork in the outside area and the 'finds' you can make around the venue and up the Glos Road. It's definitely worth popping in for this one.

The general scene last night.
