Everything Changes. . . ../. /.

I have a new solo show opening this weekend at the Lewis Elton Gallery, Guildford.. . . . .. There will be live art, new illustrations, new original paintings, and an original score composed especially for the show by Joe Guilder at Boneyard Audio… /. /./. I do hope to see you there. . . /./.

‘In this space, watch the works evolve and mutate in an explosive way, leaking on to the walls and extending its reach into new grounds as Jakob performs his own brand of live art works to soundscapes and music composed specially for the exhibition by Joe Gilder. Using found canvases of wood, and other abandoned materials, Jakob creates an organic outlook on modern society in this personal and though provoking exhibition.

Watch the gallery space transform into a canvas as Jakob performs live art on its walls throughout the day.’


UPfucked. . …. / /… ///.

Well it has been a seriously intense weekend up in Bristol for UPFEST 2012… . I’m not entirely sure i’ve fully processed it yet but i do know it has been incredible. Over the course of the weekend i managed to get two huge pieces finished as well as finding time to take in the festivities, explore/get lost in Bristol and meet some pretty amazing people. .. . ….. . /. The pictures below are of the stages and finished piece at the Upfest festival and tomorrow when ive actually had time to sleep and process i will post pictures of the piece that i did and the very grand and painfully friendly Rock & Bowl Hostal…  … . . ///. / . . cheers guys its been surreal . . ././ .

Come Crashing Together.. . …. /. /. ////.

Appologies…  /.  /. I have been without internet and a phone for a week or so now so hence the lack of posts .. . .. but not to worry i will reward your patience with an Epic!! It has been so incredibly hard to keep this secret.. but luckily the lack of net made the last week incredibly easy to hide it.. . As you know if you keep an eye on this space i had started a self indulgent epic made of over forty pieces of wood.. . the concept was hush hush.. . ././. But at last here it is make of it what you will.. . ……  . /./ / .

A busy day in the studio. . … . . .. …/. /.

I’ve got a lot on my plate this month preparing for my third solo show at the Jewry St. Gallery, Winchester (starting 16th Feb)  building frames and adding finishing touches to the pieces on show. Not that I’ve fully decided which pieces will be on show… . .

At the same time I’ve got more preparation for the ‘Retracing the Unsinkable’ exhibition this march in Southampton, and for the ‘Celebrating Life’ exhibition in Winchester. As well as that I’ve still got to keep myself occupied painting new pieces for who knows when so i don’t loose my mind. . .. .. . /. all is well in the studio of Belbin..  . .. . . / . / . /.. // .

We Shall Never Surrender!!

‘We Shall Never Surrender’   Black Ink On Distressed Paper A3

A month or so ago i started plans for www.JakobBelbin.com  but being the starving artist that i am i couldn’t afford to build it and there was no way i could build it. So i struck a deal with a  a good friend of mine to do work for work . This explosion drawing has been drawn up by myself according to the subject matter of Great Britain and will soon find a home with its new owner.

If you ever need help with web design or web marketing then i urge you to get in contact with Lewis Davis at http://www.exhibitmarketing.co.uk/

Here are some more pics of  ‘We Shall Never Surrender’
