New Nick Walker - Bristol

On a lunch break today, and spotted Nick Walker doing a new piece at the back of the Colston Hall.  Apparently it's got something to do with a BBC documentary on butterflies.

Art from the New World - Sneaky Peak @Bristol_Museum

The shows looking great.  Gary Baseman's characters getting some practice in. And lots of smiley people. Press morning at the museum.

Buffmonster being interviewed by the BBC.

One of Gary Basemans girls.
Double sided book installation by Mike Stilkey, greeting you in the foyer of the museum.

Stunning work from Colin Christian.
Bring your credit cards - merchandise.
Even more merchandise.

Awesome double headed diamond dog sculpture (just seen in the distance - apologies for Iphone quality pix).

The show looks really great, it's so nice not having to travel to London to see this sort of quality of work.  For me there is a couple of artists work I really would of liked to see (uh hum...Frank Kozik, Tara McPherson, Ashley Wood, Glenn Barr), but I presume that is because they're tied in with other galleries. Or don't need the coverage.

Incidentally my interview with the lovely Mike Stilkey will be featured later on in this blog.

To see some better quality pictures of the work shown see Cool Huntings notice.

@Bristol_museum Start of Mike Stilkey installation #aftnw

Met the lovely Mike Stilkey today who's starting work on his book
painting installation in the foyer of the Bristol Museum. Very
exciting. As is the Buffmonster in the main museum (but my picture is
of a blank wall), so I didn't include it. Hoping to post an interview
