MKWF has put this great collection of Bristol handstyles up on his blog. It's very simple, very lovely, shows the huge diversity of talent and variety in the city, I love it. Have a look here, and then spend some time on his blog, it's a nice one.


The Sickboy Show is still on at the Friend and Co gallery, until 27th February

Back in Bristol!

And the best thing about being home (apart from the fact I can't here my neighbours in the beathroom or the bedroom) is walking past the Deaner and seeing brand new graff! This is by Midas, on this wall:


Also this, by Deamz and Ziml:


Patio de Maravillas

This was something I found through the superb Urban Art trail, put together by Guillermo de Madrid for the Unofficial Tourism strand of Madrid Abierto - we'd passed the end of the street a few nights before, but hadn't gone down it, which would've been gutting if I hadn't seen this. I didn't see Guillermo's blog until this morning, which was our last in Madrid, but I wish I'd seen it earlier, it's full of amazing things, you should definitely look. (Massive thanks to dug da bug for pointing me in that direction, and also for all the info on Madrid writers)

(We only found the Unofficial Tourism caravan on our penultimate day, otherwise I would have done all the tours... especially the "bars over 100 years old" tour... and the flourescent lights tour.... and the rest of the urban arts tour.... The thing I liked best about it the brochure, though, was the words about the Cañada Tour - really hard-hitting)

Anyway, I'm back in Bris now, with about 11 films to develop and a massive backlog of Madrid graff - as I get around to it, I'll put it up in my flickr set if you're interested - but in the meantime, here's a wall we found earlier today...

Sickboy presents Logopop Bristol

Break out your yellow and red paint and all your secret temples! Sickboy's back in town!

He's having a show at the Friend & Co Gallery (in their new venue, *not* the little small Glos Road one) starting Friday and lasting til the end of the month

You can see more of Sickboy's fabulous work here - and more about the show here. God, I love Sickboy's stuff, he's one of the reasons I got into graff in the first place, him and Jef Row. I miss his stuff being around Bristol, it made me grin and feel a bit happier to see his temples, even on the dullest days. Anyway, my pics of his stuff here

Sickboy presents Logopop Bristol
Private view: February 5th, 7-10pm
Show: 6th - 27th 2010, Tues - Sat 10am - 6pm

Friend & Co Gallery, 24 Park Row, Bristol, BS1 5LJ
