Yesterday saw the opening of a new street art pop-up Gallery in Margate, by the whirlwind Ayaan, organiser of the annual all female paint jam, Femme Fierce. There is an impressive collection of artists involved, with a selection of prints and originals from INKIE (UK), Otto Schade (Chile), Fio Silva (Argentina), Zina (Norway), Parlee ERZ (UK), DICE67 (UK), Perspicere (UK), Tommy Gurr (UK), Dream Safari (UK) and many others. I have a mixture of tees, prints and jewellery on sale and enjoyed meeting fellow artists Giusi Tomasello, Darkissed Dayze and Gary Alford Art to paint the boarding on a disused former restaurant overlooking the beach.
I’ll be heading over to my first stall at the Designer Maker Market this weekend, at Old Spitalfields, with a selection of jewellery, hand printed clothing, canvases and paper prints. All clothing and prints are limited to editions of 10 or less and all clothing printed with a selection of my illustrations. Don’t fret, there will be no owls, or crafty “calm down” statements on this stall.. Items will be available online, for those of you who can’t make it down in person.. If you’re nearby though, call in for a natter xx
Making the most of the bank holiday weekend, I was really stoked to be able to join Sri McKinnon running a stall at StreetFest in Shoreditch last month, trundling a range of goodies along to this rapidly growing celebration of Live Art and Street culture.
With Global Street Art and Secret Walls providing a curated selection of artists including Captain Kris, Tizer, Candi Lo and too many more to mention, the event is as focused on its Live Art as its music, dance and sports. There were some amazing dance crews, beatbox battles and deejays giving it their best shot and loads to take a peek at, over the day.
This weekend for us though, was all about getting the stall set up within the TogetherTheyCome Market, showing folks what we do and meeting some really positive and friendly people along the way.
With a new range of tees to launch and trialing out a fresh range of bags and jewellery, a stack load of stickers and new prints were all on the stall, along with a selection of custom skate decks. Sri brought to the table her full range of hip hop and 80’s inspired handmade jewellery aswell as her illustrated cards. More of Sri’s work can be seen through her facebook page which also has links to her store.
