Joe Rush – While The Iron Is Hot

Perhaps you didn’t know it, but chances are you’ve seen a Joe Rush sculpture before.
Maybe it was the rocket ship Usain Bolt rode through the Olympic Stadium at the Paralympics, or some mental creation thundering past you while you were off your tits at Glastonbury.

Joe makes his marvellous mechanical sculptures and vehicles from old waste metal and scrapyard junk, creating beautiful, utilitarian sculptures and Mad Max-style monsters that rumble through the streets and fields.

‘While the Iron is Hot’ is Joe’s premiere gallery exhibition, featuring sculptures specially conjured up for home-installation, to be loved and cherished for generations to come

The event takes place from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday 21st November 2014.

The exhibition is open to the public from 17th January to 15th February 2014. Gallery opening hours are 12–6pm, Tuesday to Saturday, and admission is free.

Bonzia – Graffiti Kings

Check out this graffiti classic by Graffiti Kings artist Bonzia.

For those who don’t know, Darren Cullen, the founder of Graffiti Kings, was found in a bit of an odd situation recently – the only graffiti artist approved by the British Government & official graffiti artist for London 2012 he was actually arrested in a raid on graffiti artists’ homes. He was then told he could not go within a certain radius of the Olympics, despite the fact he has been a law abiding artist for years and had been specifically appointed the above role. It was all very hypocritical and ridiculous at the time so we just wanted to voice our support for The Graffiti Kings and all the work they do in promoting graffiti and helping to rid the stereotypes of vandalism.
