‘100 Houses’ brings together 100 national and international image-makers from illustrators to street artists in support of housing and homelessness charity Shelter.
Given the theme of “house” each artist has produced a unique piece of artwork specifically for this exhibition, to launch at the vibrant, South Bristol Cafe/Bar, Tobacco Factory in November. Sales from the 100 original pieces of artwork hope to generate a significant contribution to the ongoing work of the charity Shelter in its work to help people find and keep a decent home.
New works from artists such as Ferris Plock, Gemma Correll, Kelly Tunstall, members of the Brothers of the Stripe, Inky Goodness and Bristol collective Drawn in Bristol are all part of the exhibition which opens November 16th 8pm - Midnight and will be up until November 30th.
Curator, Paul Roberts, reveals, “After hosting a group show last year, supporting ‘The Woodland Trust’, I wanted to go bigger and see what would happen if I attempted to pull together 100 artists to make a difference with their art. I’ve been blown away by the artwork being sent to me from near and far - each piece is the same 10-inch square size, in order fit all the artwork into the Tobacco Factory. It’s so inspiring that such a wide body of recognized and up-and-coming talent have really pulled out all the stops for this show.”
100 Houses opening night will be on November 16th between 8pm and midnight with DJing coming from Pencilface and Waxmouse. The exhibition will be up until the 30th after which work will be put into an online shop for one month only. The Tobacco Factory is open Mon - Thurs 12pm - 11pm, Fri - Sat 12pm - 12am and Sun 10am - 11pm

This June I’ll be teaming up with Chicago’s Matthew Ryan Sharp for a dark and twisted show at LIFT in Royal Oak. His paintings for the show will include his usual motley crew of victorain drunkards, vagabonds and freaks while mine will focus on three sailor bears’ hedonistic shore leave.
