#KEEPUPART: this lovely little canvas arrived from the street artist @<a href=”“>xlvii who is from my old manor and doing some great work - and this series is especially topical right now with the arts struggling in the face of so much government indifference. Support your local artist or @<a href=”“>xlvii if you can. #art #covid #streetartist

#LEAKESTREET: 2. Banksy’s #CansFestival was HEAVING, and with good reason, the art on show was often still wet and who knew how long it would stay. #Banksy’s famous #InjuredBuddha here. #streetart #graffiti #art #leakestreettunnel

Show #8 of #2017 shows how I’m getting old when the stuff I saw first time round comes back for a long-awaited revival. Sheesh. #Art is as good as when #MatthewWarchus directed it first time round. Solidly good play from #YasminaReza @oldvictheatre #theatre #londontheatre #londontheatreclub

Eastside Culture Crawl, Vancouver

[caption id=”attachment_197” align=”alignright” width=”200” caption=”Valerie at 800 Keefer Street”]Valerie at 800 Keefer Street[/caption] Eastside Culture Crawl is a yearly event in Vancouver where artists of the Eastside open their studios and host visitors to show and sell their latest work. Led by the lovely Valerie Arntzen, the Crawl lets artists engage directly with the public and gain a huge audience in the space of a weekend rather than having to tout their work around galleries and spaces, and also give people an insight into their workspaces and often living spaces. I spent an afternoon at the Crawl and went to meet Valerie at her HQ, AMP at 800 Keefer Street, where several other artists have studios. She spoke to me about how they ended up there - several of them bought the place over a decade ago to safeguard their workspaces, and it’s worked out wonderfully… Below is the audio of a brief chat I had with Valerie.

Little Girls Shoot

And that’s it for the first project from our new collective - “Little Girls” - coming to a screen near you soon. A bit of art meets fashion, something to get everyone involved and seeing how well we worked together. Pretty good going all round, a little cold down on set, but great work from our six make-up and hair artists, three models and sturdy assistant. Full project launch later in the summer… [caption id=”attachment_116” align=”aligncenter” width=”560” caption=”Sugar and spice…”]Sugar and spice...[/caption]
