TROUBLEMAKERS!!!

12 May

I’m going to be doing some street art with The Plebeian Scribblers and The Plebeian Printmakers as part of Volcano’s Troublemakers arts festival July 13th – 16th 2017. For the past two summers, The Plebeian Scribblers have been an integral part of “A FAB Intervention”, a one-day street event in Bath’s City Centre during the annual Fringe Arts Bath so it’s great that we can bring it back to our home town this summer. Here’s some of the drawings I did in Bath below.

FAB 5 6

I will be working with urban scribblers Chris Harrendence, Patricia McKenna-Jones and Melvyn Williams to deliver three sessions of 30 minutes of structured street drawings which will be digitally recorded and blogged.

FAB 7 8

But with an added twist, the following day we’ll be inviting local printmakers to join us to take prints from metal structures like manhole covers in High Street, inspired by the Berlin Raubdruckerin collective. I’ll be posting more as we get the plans firmed up ……

I have put my series of drawings en plein air of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to see more, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page. So did you know that Elvis Presley is descended from the Welsh? This drawing below is the legendary grave of Saint Elfys (Elvis) in Pembrokeshire, not for from the Presceli Mountains. Elfys? Presceli? Elvis Presley? Coincidence? hhhmmmm

St Elvis

      The drawings are from last year’s festival in Bath but the Troublemakers festival will be in July in Swansea. I’m hoping it doesn’t rain!
