MIND THE GAP – Broadway Studios, March 2015

Installation: A collection or selection of images of pieces installed, or installations in brutalist West End car parks, in skips, condemned buildings in Tooting Broadway, in galleries, in East London tailors shops, hang in trees in woods in Leytonstone, in warehouses in Liverpool or Hackney, on walls in Folkestone…. There’s a whole album of images gathered together here should you wish to explore

43s, car parks, 199 daily paintings and…

The ongoing notions of daily paintings throughout the year, fresh leaf growth and things that revolve around the number 43 (that one down there happened in a car park in Liverpool a couple of years back).  There’s been 199 daily paintings now, this being the 199th day of the year, some of them have been seen hanging on gallery walls, some left on the street for people to take, some sold on-line (all 199 can be seen on this page) , some saved for a show later this year. It isn;t about starting and finishing a piece every day, it is about bringing one to a conclusion and every day on the year…

Car parks and 43s were not something deliberate, well not when it started, they might be now, that and #43ArtDrops like the one that happened at Hackney Wicked last year, the recent #43ArtDrop that happened recently on the Leytonstone Arts Trail and the 43 Miniature canvas pieces at the Art Car Boot Fair a couple of weeks back.  I imagine the number 43 might figure again at Hackney WickEd this year as well as September’s Folkestone leg of the 2017 Art Car Boot Fair….

The 2017 Art Car Boot Fair came and went in a rush of big crowds and art and engagement and

The 2017 Art Car Boot Fair came and went in a rush of big crowds and art and engagement and more. Here’s how the Art Car Boot Fair looked from our boot-shaped stall…. “Well that was great fun! What an excellent day, It was never going to be quite the same south of the river, of course it wasn’t, and a lot of the debate at the end of it all revolved around comparing the day with the great days of previous fairs and the buzz of Brick Lane. To compare really is the wrong thing to do though, of course it was never going to be the quite the same and in a month where East London has been rather alive with art and the buzz of the very recently East London Art Night amongst other East London things of a more artist-led nature, it seemed a little strange to be loaded up with art and heading for South London early on a Sunday morning….   read on via the Organ pages

The use of the hash tags are a big part of these Art Drop pieces…

Some of the recently hung #43ArtDrop pieces have been found, always good to see the photos, once I leave the pieces I have little idea in terms of what happens to them unless others post photos and such. The photos and the use of the hash tags are a big part of these Art Drop pieces. There’s a nice bit of coverage via the Shoreditch Street Art Tour website down underneath this first photo just “borrowed” from their website…

Found #43ArtDrop pieces, July 2017 (photo: Dave Stuart, Shoreditch Street Art Tours)

SHOREDITCH STREET ART TOUR (July 2017) – A piece on some of the recent #43ArtDrop pieces found, “Artist Sean Worrall is renown for his generous distribution of free art in various parts of London and indeed occasionally even further afield…It is a wonderfully beautiful gesture by Sean Worrall to place these free pieces art out on the street to await their fate and we are delighted to report that this cluster of four have all gone to very appreciative homes…”  Great to see the photos of people finding the pieces, I tend to leave and so I don’t get to see…

And here’s some of Dave Stuart’s photos, he of Shoreditch Street Art Tours, the photos are from the tour and the piece Dave wrote. The Photos of people and the use of the hashtag on the back is an important part of these Art Drop pieces, always excellent to see them posted on line

157/365 – Fresh Leaf Growth, June 6th Fresh growth, new layers, leaves and the ongoing notion of a smaller painting brought to a completed conclusion on every single day of 2017. On day 157, a 157th piece, acrylic, marker pen, brushwork, spray paint, varnish on the cover of a found hardback book…

The ongoing notion of a smaller painting brought to a completed conclusion on every day of the year in 2017. I imagine the pieces that haven’t already been sold or left hanging as #43ArtDrop pieces, will be on sale at very reasonable prices at this Sunday’s Art Car Boot fair over in Vauthall, London, E11.
