The gallery has grown from a monthly live painting night in Bristol. Each month inviting some of the best upcoming artists to collaborate together coinciding with upcoming local dj’s, bands and acts.
Gallery Owner Cheba says, ‘Our approach will focus on solo artist shows, allowing free reign for the artist to take over the space painting the walls how they like. The gallery will also hold a group exhibition of up to 20 artists every 6 months, selling original artwork from a range of young aspiring to internationally known artists’.
For the opening group show there are many exciting artists including Radiohead album cover artist Stanley Donwood, Mysterious Al from London plus artists that have work in the current Bristol RWA ‘Crimes of Passion’ exhibition including: Inkie, Jody, Mr Jago, Lokey, Andy Council, 45rpm, Sepr, Cheba and many more.
As well as original artworks there will be screenprints, books, artist designed clothing, Posterman pens and Fairtrade coffee on sale. The WOC gallery will be a hub for artists to meet up and collaborate and work on various projects together.
