Sadly the Grim Reaper by Banksy in the top left side of the collage having been removed from the hull of the Thekla, now hangs inside the Bristol Life Gallery in the M Shed Museum, Bristol. John D’oh adds much humour with fracking good artwork! Local Bristol artist Cheo adds a buzz with his trademark bee!

Stik……. The big book!

This must be the street art book of the year………  Stik is maybe the best known street artist alongside  Banksy in England. Now you can have the chance to meet this iconic street artist during his first book signing at Foyles bookshop on Thursday 13th August, from 6.30pm @ 107 Charing Cross Road, London. Over ten years of painting in his unique style. Now read the stories behind the artwork from those undercover days of dodging the law! Enjoy the large glossy photos of this intriguing book. The first edition I’m sure will sell out very quickly and become very collectable indeed…                                                                                                   

You will love it…Mitch  (. .)

Soooooo pleased to have met Stik in Acton! His largest artwork to date “Big Mother” seen being painted on the side of Charles Hocking House in South Acton, is a whopping 38.2 meters high! http://londonist.com/2014/11/stik-paints-worlds-tallest-street-artwork.php  http://stik.org/news.html
