I went to the opening of The London Police show last night, at stolenspace gallery. New work is dotted around London in places corresponding with a monopoly board and there’s drawing on cricket bats, balls and snooker cues as well canvas. The monopoly board is my favorite piece, the only one I’ve seen with colour and i like a bit of brand subversion. Crisp detailed edding marker pen action, go check it out.

Streetfest was the weekend just gone and I was invited down to check it out. Me and Tempo were sorted out with a permanent spot and some tins thanks to Global streetart Lee. It was great to catch up with some faces too, Ventza, Darren John, Phill Blake, Tizer and Roo especially after being out the country so long.
Saw some nice pieces dropped, and also some not so nice pieces.. but everyone starts somewhere.
It was a wicked day and there was food, music and skateboarding and plenty of freebies to be had. Secretwalls was also in attendance with Team GB getting down.
See you there next year.

I received these two books from the publishers last week, so I’m going to tell you about them.
It’s a Stick Up:
Written by Oliver Walker who did the Lazarides artist’s monographs on my bookshelf. It features interviews with 20 artists such as Kid Acne, Dain, A.ce, it’s a line up of paste up upperers of late.
Included is a double page pull out piece/paste up from each artist. If you’ve got a collection or just want something to dip into, this is a great book to get hold of.
Shame there’s no Tempo 33 featured!
100 Ideas That Changed Art:
“.. an inspirational and wholly original guide to understanding the forces that have shaped world art.”
This one really caught my attention; Any book featuring both cave art and street art would do. It’s a well illustrated guide of 100 of the most influential innovations in the history of art. It provides context for categories of art-making as well as historical and contemporary reference points to aid further study.
I doubt you’ll see any writers racking this one, but I rate it.
