The 79th painting of 2017 happened on the 79th day of the year, two days ago, March 20th 79/365, More  fresh leaf growth and the notion of a smaller painting brought to a finished state every day of the year during 2017. Fresh leaf growth and new layers growing in an unwanted vintage frame found on the street (20cm x 25cm) – Acrylic, spray paint, brush work, marker pen, varnish.. The 80th Piece was completed yesterday, day 80, and I expect an 81st will be completed or concluded before today ends.

The idea of a painting concluded every day goes on, some of them are being added to the Cultivate on-line shop, some posted on ebay, some hung on street walls for people to take and such.  Meanwhile a number of bigger pieces are in production ready for forthcoming shows, both solo and Cultivate group shows. We will be back at the 2017 Art Car Boot Fair in London this year and Folkestone as well, always a buzz to see the invitation to take part arrive, and always a highlight of the art year.

The notion of a smaller painting a day goes on, 67 days in now, it isn’t really an option not to painting, a day is not a completely satisfying unless something has been created, and it is enhanced a little more if it is created on something that somebody didn’t want, an old skateboard deck thrown in a skip, an unwanted unplayable vinyl record, an old fashion bag discarded and then retrieved and painted on. This Eileen Fisher fashion bag, was found in Hackney bin, it became the 59th painting of 2017 and the next part of the What price Art questiom

Clearing out the cobwebs, having a look back at…

Spring cleaning today, clearing up the website, clearing out the studio, clearing out the cobwebs, having a look back at the last few productive years. There’s a whole album of selected pieces from the last six years – paintings, pieces, art drops, leaves, pieces left hanging on walls, paintings in galleries, boxes in the street, old growth, new growth, things evolving, been a busy last six or so years – the #365ArtDrop piece, the maximalism down Vyner Street, the #43 pieces of 2016, thousands of pieces of art, a hundred or more shows curated, good to take a step back and view it all as one body or productiveness…

WHAT PRICE ART? This weekend the price of a pint or a horse or a house or a cake…

whatpriceSEAN WORRALL & Guests – WHAT PRICE ART?  An art event at Cultivate, Vyner Street, London, E2.

What price art? An event where you name the price and there is no debate….. An original piece of art for the price of a pint or a cake or a house or a horse or…. What price art?

From Thursday 18th September until Sunday 21st September one half of the ever evolving art space called Cultivate will be devoted to another What Price Art event. The event starts at 11.30am and the gallery is open 11.30am until 6pm from Thursday until Sunday.

For one last time in Vyner Street, Sean Worrall and a number of guests will show a selection of work, all work will be on sale, none of the pieces will be priced. Viewers can name their own price on any of the pieces, there will be no debate, whatever the viewer offers for a piece of work will be the price accepted and the viewer/buyer can take away the piece for the price they wish to pay.

galleryemma2There will be no discussion, no debate, I shall be delighted to see you leaving with a piece of art exchanged for whatever you think is fair or or indeed for a price that that you think you can afford. Original art for everyone who would like a piece.

If you think it too intimidating then please please don’t be, this is a relaxed event, we are happy for you to leave with a piece, and do remember, I have left hundreds of pieces of art out for free this year around places like the Hackney WickED art festival, the Folkestone Fringe, around the streets and canal banks of London, the Liverpool Biennial and beyond, I am happy for you to pay a little (or as much) as you like.

If you don’t want to name a price in the gallery with one of us standing there then fine, we can understand that, instead put your payment in an envelope before hand (or in one of the envelopes provided and we shall take your envelope and not look in the envelope until you have left with your piece of art.

zz_today19Come buy a piece of art for as little as £1 (or less) or as much as £1000 (or more), or just come have a look anyway, we run an art gallery, not a shop!.

The only rule is no more than one piece per person. If you wish to buy a second piece then we will reserve the right to say no.

A percentage of the money made will go towards the evolution of Cultivate, a percentage to St Joseph’s Hospice, you find St Joseph’s around the corner from us in Vyner Street and we believe those who run art spaces, galleries should join in with the community, not take over the community, and yes a percentage will go to the artists (I need to buy fresh paint and maybe some food, paint doesn’t taste nice).

aaa_cultevolved_jan30feb12We shall be installing new work at Cultivate Evolved (Vyner Street, East London) tomorrow (Wednesday Jan 30th), including work from our next two guest artists BEN NAZ and QUIET BRITISH ACCENT.

My vinyl pieces at £5 each, if that’s a little expensive then there is a box full of £1 painted cardboard pieces in the gallery right now. Rather like the idea of art that everyone can afford and interact with…

Posted some thoughts in the evolution of Cultivate on the gallery blog yesterday, here comes the link now LATEST CULTIVATE BLOG: A month and a bit in, some thoughts on the evolution of Cultivate and things….

Been a month and a bit since we evolved it all, six or seven weeks actually, doesn’t time fly when you’re busy growing leaves (and not exclaiming! Been twenty seven days since I last exclaimed, resolutions are for keeping!). Growing leaves beats herding artists, It really was a case of evolve or close, we’d taken the original idea as far as our artists-doing-it-ourselves curiosity needed to take us, we discovered a lot about interactions, art and the way people like to explore galleries and the art they find on the walls, we discovered lots about how galleries work. We mostly had a great time, a positive set of experiences (we made friends with lots of dogs, dogs like to visit art galleries). Two and a bit years was enough in terms of the constant dealing with dozens of needy artists, and yes we did toy with just closing the space and clearing out the street for good (I’m a paint-throwing artist, I have no desire to be a gallerist or some sort of big fat commission charging art dealer…. continued here
