Jimmy C – Pop Skull in East London…

Posted on Saturday, 2nd June, 2012

In Jimmy’s words: “Damian Hirst produced his diamond skull for £14 million and it is said to be valued at £50 million. In conjunction with his exhibition at the Tate, I have painted a pop street skull on the street using fluorescent spray paint. The materials would have costed around £50, and I give this one to the people on the street!”

Jimmy C New Walls in Berlin, Germany

Posted on Monday, 30th April, 2012

Mr Jimmy C has been a busy man in Berlin – painting 3 walls in 4 days! The first in Hackescher Markt, the second in Revalerstrasse, and the third in Ostbahnhof.

We’re particularly excited about the Revalerstrasse piece: a new take on ‘The Artist’s Tears’ to celebrate the 10th Anniversary since James first painted it back in Sydney 2002. The piece became James’s first ever print through No Way Art Projects late last year.

He first exhibited The Artist’s Tears at the Gitte Weise Gallery in Sydney (2003), and it was later acquired by the Art Gallery of South Australia for their permanent collection.

In Mr C’s words: “The painting became known as my signature painting and marks the merging of my interest in figurative realism in painting with graffiti or street art. I thought Berlin was the appropriate place to mark this occasion by creating a new version of the painting in the drip style. It is good to give this it a second life and to reintroduce it to a whole new audience.”

ROA’s Giant Hedge Pig hits Chance Street in East London…

Posted on Monday, 23rd April, 2012

Belgian artist ROA has a new wall up to promote his latest exhibition in East London at Stolen Space Gallery.

A constant crowd of people gathered to watch him paint the piece in record time. He battled the rain pretty much on and off all day. And worked late into the evening to get the piece completed – it really does look a beauty. If you’re in the East London area pop by and take a look. It’s opposite Shoreditch Overground Station on Bethnal Green Road.
