As part of I LOVE ART UK (13 women show) i have been invited to exhibit some of my work ad work in the “Spray Your Own Art” section of the stand. I am very pleased to be involved with this local project.. /. i have a bunch of pigeons ready for sale all listed below, as well as whole host of other paintings and prints.

For a single fee you will have your surface, a lot of spray paint and the use of plenty of stencils.. /. Paint your own wooden carved heart, t-shirt or canvas././ Heres a couple of examples i knocked up yesterday, They will of course also be for sale./.
Regulars to my blog would have noted that last Upfest i also painted at the notorious Rock & Bowl hostel, Every Upfest they open up their doors and invite artists from around the world to leave their mark at the hostel. Last year i was honored to be offered a space of my own and leapt on the opportunity https://jakobbelbin.wordpress.com/2012/06/06/rock-n-bowl/ Though this year i was not staying at the hostel, their winsome manager “Matty B” extended the same offer to me once more. This time round i was a year older and had a partner in crime so i went for something completely different and chose a completely different space under the recommendation of Matty B. Its the only dark wall in the hostel and is the entrance to the smoking area. . / ./. These devastating beauty’s are 8 feet tall and were painted in about 2-3hours . /.// // …./ .

Last year i made a bunch of paintings based on our mainstream newspapers.. ./. It was my original intention to exhibit them as part of a full show… /But due to economic restraints have decided to exhibit them on the streets. ../. Look out fringe festival. . /./ No White Wallss./. /.///.

What can i really say…/. Apart from thank you to EVERYONE…././. Everyone who came last night, everyone involved in the show and everyone around those involved.././ This show was both mine and Karol Michalecs first show in Brighton and because of you all it was a raging success…. /. The building was full all evening and a buzzing hub of activity …/. Never before has someone elses work complemented mine so well./. Its been incredible to work with such like minded people. This show encompassed all of my favorite elements of fine art… Painting, Graphics, Sculpture, Drawing, Collage, Performance and Free Art.
This show wouldn’t have been possible without Karol Michalec, Hazel Stephenson, Gill at The Painting Pottery Cafe, Alexander Glass, Harry (i dont know your full name light man), Lee Belbin and of course the love of my life Frin.. . . /.///.
This is the start of a beautiful friendship and you can all expect to see the Belbin and Michalec name joined in the future… . ./.
You can view some of the pictures here…/. but there are more on the way.///.
Again Thank you to all.. ./. Warmth. x
