Fame Festival

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

I was lucky enough to attend the Fame Festival in Grottaglie, Italy last year, an amazing yearly International street art exhibition that takes over the whole town. I went with Lucy Mclaughlan and the Beat 13 gang who have been a regular contributers to this event, even ended up helping hang some of the exhibition. The festival is organised through the great independent screen print studio chromie, Needless to say on my return I ended up framing a few pieces that were produced as part of the event by a selection of renowned artists and illustrators, such as Blu, Eric the dog, Dave Kinsey and JR. Here’s some pics of the amazing work we framed, including an incredible 31 colour screenprint by Dalek.

Here’s a little film i made of our adventure, featuring some of the street pieces.

And this is an animation done by the incredibly talented Blu, made in an abandoned monestary in Grottaglie, during a previous years festival.

Last year we framed some work by respected local photographers for the grand opening show of the newly refurbished Midlands Arts Centre, in Birmingham. A fantastic cultural space in the grounds of Canon Hill park, if you don’t know it i recommend a visit, nice new theatre and exhibition space too.

Re-posting some old lost links, this was a show we framed last summer for our good friend and talented artist Lucy Mclauchlan. This was her last big solo show at Lazarides Gallery in central London, it was a great show, good turn out and great artist!
