Here is a copy of the Upfest 2017 map so you can plan out who you want to see painting on the day. I'll be painting with Miss Wah over in South Street Park this year.
Here is a run down of 5 artist websites that you should know about...
I met RIP Smith for the first time at the Burnham Spray Jam where he was arguing with a teacher outside a vape shop about how all teachers are essentially authoritarian. A sound fella who cuts a neat stencil you can find him at ripartist.com
I'm lucky enough to be collaborating with this lady at Upfest this year. She does super cute art and if you look carefully has me on the front page of her website misswah.com
I discovered this guy after he donated several pieces to my Free Art Friday project #fafptb and I instantly fell in love with his sombre work. I'm confident you will too after you check it out on danielwilsonart.com
Toy maker extraordinaire and pretty handy with cans too, take a look at his site czee13.com and you'll see what I mean. His latest print " I Lost You" is a steal at just £20.
QUIET BRITISH ACCENT
I fell in love with the penny drops when I first saw them, tiny pieces of signwriting perfection that you should check out on quietbritishaccent.com
Hope you like the artists websites I've picked out for you, if you have any other suggestions let me know in the comments.
Recently I was asked by Upfest to paint up a book press for the launch of their new book. Lots of other artists took part in the project and today all the pieces were officially revealed.
The book launches are in London at Relentless Number 5 on the 1st December and in Bristol at the Upfest Gallery on the 2nd December, if you are interested in attending click on the links at the bottom of this post but if thats not possible you can take a look at all the book presses here or on the Upfest Facebook page.
In 2013 I was invited down to Southsea for Head Jam. Check out the video.
