Art Heist Art Exhibition

Last week was an exciting week for us here at EndoftheLine. We saw the arrival of Art Heist: the inaugural show from long time pals Bablu Miah and Sara Farrell.

We’ve known Bablu for a few years now, and you probably know him too. He’s that pocket-sized brown fellow that places himself at every art exhibition, festival, paint happening and anything and everything else street art. And if you haven’t seen him on the street, then you’ve more than likely spotted him on the Twitter stream sharing and supporting the industry through social media. Or that’s because he’s hiding behind his camera. But Bablu has been our wonderful go-to fan that has been spreading the word on what we do for a good 3 years. This one-man support wagon never asks for anything in return and helps artists and small companies like ours of his own back and on his own time, and has proven to be incredibly valuable to us all. So a small personal note but a BIG thanks for everything you have done over the years Babs.

Sara is the girl that needs no introduction, a great personality who has supported artists in the same way. You may know her from last years Sclater Street Stalls, where she brought key artists from the area to paint live and provided a platform for them to sell work. It’s hard to find heads in the industry as genuine as these two.

So when we heard they were doing their own exhibition with a few of the artists they have helped prop up, we, like everyone else in town, headed on over to show our support in the small ways that we can: Take silly photos. Needless to say, EVERYONE was there, and the walls of Circle London tattoo parlour were bursting. So regrettably not as many photos as we’d hoped, as most time was spent saying hello to everyone we’d ever met but also waiting for the poor single bartender to get through the queue. But alas, we got a couple and of course that all important money shot of both organisers.

The show will run until 15th November, and we do sincerely suggest that you get down there to check out this incredible selection of work from some of the industries best!

#TRIBE15 at Ugly Duck

This weekend, Chrom-Art curated their second instalment of #TRIBE15; a weekend only exhibition that features the very best in emerging talent spanning across a mix of mediums. We got a glimpse of everything from interpretive dance, live painting, video mapping and interactive animation that took place at the Ugly Duck space in London Bridge.

The range of work was as impressive as the quality and notable work came from the likes of Charles Harrop-Griffiths, Jordi Piniagua, Roger De Casanove, David Maraton, Xavi Odena & Micromacro. David Maraton wowed us with a short video mapping presentation, blending 3d shapes with sound and motion. Charles Harrop-Griffiths set up an interactive video mapping screen that moved with the kinetics of a subjects hand when held above an infrared camera, Piniagua & De Casanove captivated us with neons through sculpture and print and Micromacro gave us an intimate and beautifully presented interpretive dance show.

EndoftheLine’s Jim Vision was also amongst the line-up and gave us an insight in to ‘a day in the life of’ by live painting a few of his most recent canvasses.
The show was a great success and we thoroughly look forward to the next show that Chrom-art have in store for us!
