London International Pasteup Festival

Street Art has many forms, different techniques have evolved to suit different artistic strategies and different environments.  Stencilism is most closely associated with street art’s emergence in the early to mid 2000s thanks mainly to Banksy and the many artists he influenced and inspired.  Muralism, on surfaces ranging from building site hoardings to massive end gable walls has come to dominate the public’s awareness of street art over the past ten years.   Street art is most profound as an outlet for the unsung, the outsider, the radical and the romantic and the most convenient format for unauthorised street art is the paste up – images on paper glued to external surfaces.

On the heels of London’s first Mural Festival last year, 2021 brings The London International Paste Up Festival.  100s of pasteup street art pieces over 6 locations featuring many artists seen in London for the first time and many old favourites.

The formal opening night takes place this Thursday 4th November at The Hoxton Gallery and the festival runs until Sunday the 7th.  On Sunday I will be leading a free tour of the paste up locations and the art will remain visible for viewing for varying lengths of time depending on the location.

Moniker Art Fair 2015

Mid October traditionally sees the art world descend on London drawn by a crazy whirlwind of art fairs, gallery shows, events and parties. Particularly the parties. Moniker Art Fair is the one fair worth going to see for fans of street art and urban art, it takes place in the Old Truman Brewery, E1 6QL, just off Brick Lane in Shoreditch.

This will be the 6th Moniker Art Fair and the third in its larger OTB home after 3 years at Village Underground. In addition to galleries Moniker has a full programme of events including live mural painting by Inkie, Kid Acne and Bom.K from the legendary French street art crew DMV, screen printing from Jealous Prints, talk panels (no – really!) , music, beer and grub. More details on the Moniker website.

Bom.K paints in Eli’s Yard, Shoreditch on Friday but has got off to a flying start demonstrating his virtuoso spraycan skills with a mural on Pedley St, both these places often feature on the Shoreditch Street Art Tour depending on what route we take. Bom.k’s work can be seen on the MYA stand at Moniker and based on previous Bom.K work seen in the capital it is sure to be stunning.

Artists expected to be featured on the galleries include Ryan Callanan (RYCA) on TAG Fine Arts, and Graffik Gallery from Portobello Rd features the ever popular French artist Clet Abraham who is truly prolific with his outdoor traffic sign subversions. London Westbank features new work by K-Guy (as indeed does Shoreditch Street Art Tours from time to time!) and Inkie and also promises to have older pieces by Banksy from the second hand market. Lauren Baker (glass mosaic street art – yes!) has something in common with Banksy, both have works being shown on two Moniker stands!

Lauren Baker – totally unrepresentative artwork!

Particularly exciting is the news that Kallenabch Gallery is showing work by New York’s finest French import WK Interact.

Hawkins and Blue feature Pegasus and Bambi, two stylistically overlapping London stencilists. Bambi’s Michael Brown stencilled piece on Rivington Street will be familiar to tour guests, just don’t expect a personal appearance from Bambi at the fair!

One gallery choosing to use its name to highlight the conceptual conflict between street art  and its cousin gallery art is 44309 Street//Art Gallery. No struggle over its quality line up of featured artists which includes Blek Le Rat (French stencillist), Alice Pasquani, MadC and Telmo and Miel, whose Pedley St mural has just been painted over by Bom.K this week. We probably won’t see retaliatory lining out between gallerists at Moniker!

Bristol stencilist Nick Walker has works in an installation curated by Moniker Arts Projects and exhibited on the walls of the pop up Mexican cantina Art of Patron, the blurb tempts us with the following: “Walker’s sophisticated and highly intricate works are the perfect accompaniment to the carefully curated food and drink menu.”  Until there is photographic proof I won’t believe anyone can get through a whole Nick Walker canvas in one go.

If you fancy a little blind punt, there is the “Art On A Postcard” fundraiser for Hepatitis C Trust featuring 200 works of art and 200 tickets to be sold at £50 so every ticket gets a piece of art, with the possibility of snagging a post card from Gilbert and George, Matt Small, Inkie, Shuby, Eelus, Ashes 57 to name but a few. Everyone a winner!

Street Art Gallery Private Views on October First Thursday

Thursday night is the big one, specially when it’s the first Thursday of the month yes?  So, if you are an artist or a gallerist and you arrange your opening private view on the first Thursday of the month you sort of hope that you aren’t just going to be lost in the noise.  So well done and big ups Aida, Shuby and Collagism for taking a punt on First Thursday and being the ONLY private view in the Shoreditch Street Art Tour diary.

Adia, Shuby and Collagism are HYSTERIA.

Aida, Shuby, Collagism = Hysteria

We love Aida and we love Shuby and have been seeing their paste up work on the street for years, we are pretty sure we are going to love Collagism after seeing her work in the gallery tomorrow.
