Knights of the crusade and B.boys break dancing. Rag & bone men, pitiful horses and the grey London streets. Dusty relics, faded empires and finding the keys to the time machine. The last of the cockney robots and feeling pre-digital. Sonic booms that light up the night sky and wide eyed astronomers who won't go to bed. But most of all being brave!
In 2008 I created 'Donk' as a creative space, or banner name under which to explore an anonymous street application of new ideas, pasting these images onto the streets of London and elsewhere.
The images form in storybook fashion, and often allude to aspects of growing up, or the journey from innocents to more adult awareness.
Donk remixes elements of urban culture and history across a time-line of my own making, at once referencing the past and the contemporary to make playful and anachronistic connections between universal themes of human strength, vulnerability and the passage of time.
Donk says his aim is to communicate something sincere but ultimately entertaining.
The editions you will see here, all started as high contrast photographic constructs, which are then translated into hand finished screen prints.
We will be exhibiting a collection of Screen prints from Donk London in the gallery for the first time.
Angus is a surprisingly adequate Bristol based, independent Artist. He has been creating works of art since early 2015. With no formal training and no background in art, Angus is self taught and hit the ground running with his tongue in cheek style. Angus takes his inspiration from the people in his life, current affairs, iconic figures and the creative backdrop of the Bristol Art scene.
Angus has taken part in many paint festivals nation wide and has been fortunate enough to have been selected three years in a row for Europe's largest. When not on the street painting he is busy in his studio creating artworks for some of the leading Galleries in the UK. With a couple of celebrity commissions under his belt and features in a number of urban art books we are super happy to showcase new works from this Mosaic Master!
Dario Santos is a Fine Artist, Illustrator and Street Artist originally from Portugal, now based in Swindon. Dario's unique artistic style is characterised by pure bold colours and inspired by both the surrealistic and psychedelic movements.
In his works Dario explores a relationship between colours and the drawing itself, using space and shape to allow each colour it's own presence. Dario's Paper Works play with your mind with their perfectly flat colours created with POSCA pens which create a seamless consistency with his Digital and Printmaking works.

As if this needs any kind of introduction!
Banksy's works continue to inspire especially with his current Cut & Run exhibition in the GOMO in Glasgow giving a behind the scenes insight into how he has produced his masterpieces around the world.
We will be exhibiting a few pieces in the gallery for you along with some goodies from the latest show up for grabs.
After making a mark around the world with his highly recognisable graffiti, Pure Evil felt compelled to return to London. Playing with the ideas of good and evil, the artist made powerful statements by infusing modern icons into his work.
The urban influenced painter became so prolific that he began an association with the minds that helped create Banksy's 'Santa's Ghetto'.
Despite growing his brand into a global empire, he is renowned for continuing to work in the classic mediums of street artists such as spray paint, pastels and stencils.
