It was packed to the rafters with Sickboy's colourful crazy and bizarre creations. Work on paper, wood metal and canvas. A large size installation at one end of the sweltering downstairs gallery was perfectly visible from the beer table. There is not much room for an artist that has his own uniquely different path to grow in the eye's of just anyone, you have to like Sickboy's art at first sight then you will like it forever.
Sickboy delivered what was expected which was just perfect.
The show runs up to 30th August.

Street Art News have a very limited screen printed zine and hand painted screen print package available from 6pm Monday 30th June. Some monies from "For The Blues" will be going to fund Mission To Art street art residency in Turin.
I have to admit that we here at artbleat do love a bit of Know Hope. But also have to admit that the man from Tel Aviv is slowly creeping into the "artists that are no longer affordable" bracket. Which is a shame for us poor folk.
The zines are entirely hand printed (with many pages hand-pulled by the artist himself) and include serigraphs, original photographs, hand-painted/cut paper and hand-written elements, all sewn together composing a unique and interactive piece of art, with elements revealing themselves as the pages turn. Only 10 of these amazing items have been produced by Know Hope. The “For The Blues” print is an edition of 10, 3 layer hand-pulled screen-print on Hahnemühle 350 gsm. It has been heavily hand-painted with water-color and acrylics by the artist and it measures 22 x 29 cm. “For The Blues” comes signed and numbered by Know Hope.
"Calm Before the Storm’ is a beautifully presented giclee print with silkscreen semi-gloss finish on heavyweight 330gsm Somerset Velvet paper. It is from a signed and numbered edition of just 50. The print is giclee with silkscreen, which makes the red and blue areas subtly shimmer.
The image is taken from my original painting of Cara Delevingne, British model and actress.
Printed by master fine art print-makers Harwood King.
Signed, titled and numbered by myself."
A few of the Prints are even hand dried by Pam in her back garden.

The wonderfully eclectically named GraffitiStreet are finally throwing open their web portal at 20.00 hours (UK) tonight 12/06. The first release will be by Portsmouth's very own My Dog Sighs. In a refreshing change MDS has presented a rather nice print that doesn't rely on reflective eyes.
There are two versions of "You, Me, Us." with the red in an edition of 20 and gold in a more expensive edition of only 8... and in a strange echo of the Charming Baker print (below) the less expensive print is much nicer. See you at 20.00 hours HERE then.
