The notion then, the thought that a painting should be completed every day during 2017, not started, just brought to a conclusion. Pieces that have been evolving over days, weeks, sometimes years. A smaller piece a day (there are bigger pieces of work in progress, it isn’t all about these smaller pieces coming to a conclusion every day)

This week’s What Price Art piece is a had painted piece of 7″ vinyl (that’s it up there), painted on an old ORG Records release, an old Gog Magog single from back in the days when we were foolish enough to run a record label. One of the finest releases ever, I might just throw in an unpainted copy of the single as well, a classic slice of London punk rock,,,. Go explore ebay, put my name in the search engine, I’m sure you’ll find it (as well as a number of other reasonably priced pieces of art from myself and other Cultivate associated artists)

Meanwhile, the third in a series of Cultivate shows at BSMT Space comes up on February 9th.

Another gathering of pro-active artists and another maximalist exercise in cross-pollination. A room alive with contemporary painters, so-called street artists, performers, print makers and more…. Watch this space…. Opening on Thursday evening and then a short sharp shock of a show through the weekend and closing on Sunday, no messing about, just artists, walls, people and….

Once more this is about taking art and artists out of those comfortable little boxes that the London art scene appears to need, mixing things up, messing with the rules, nothing fragile –

Last time Emma Harvey and Sean Worrall invited a wallpaper printer (currently hanging in the V&A), alongside a street artist currently painting East London walls, a London dress-maker currently raging against London Fashion week, a contemporary painter currently exploring the view found through a circle, a performance artist freshly returned from her LA performance next to a pro-active artist still questioning the destruction of the mining communities, this time…. well we’re working on it…
