B&B Gallery is open Saturdays 12-6pm, or by appointment during the week.
Artists represented at the Winter show are Aida, Amandine Urruty, Anacao, Asuka Ohsawa, Ben Suckout, Bob 2, Chris Jarratt, Daniel Sparkes, Dominic Kesterton, Emilie Taylor, Faunagraphic, Florence Blanchard, Ged Wells, Ghostpatrol, Giro Day, Hedof, Horphe, HuskMitNavn, James Green, Jan Garet, Jerome Campbell, Jo Peel, John Atherton, Jon Boam, Jon Cannon, Jonathan Wilkinson, Kid Acne, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Mark Drew, Mina Hamada, Nelio, Nug, Ozzy Lister, Petro, RCF1, Russell Maurice, Sarah Hardesty, Sophie Alda, TADO, Tara Mcpherson, Theo Simpson, Tom J Newell and Zosen.
This colorful and populated show offers a vast variety of small-scale artwork, directed toward public interested in purchasing contemporary urban art. There are drawings, prints, paintings on canvas and wood and other conventional and innovative representational techniques.
One that is especially eye-catching among the presented multitude of interesting artists is Dane, HuskMitNavn. He is represented at the show with several of his signature pieces, TV Dinner being one of them. This hand-pulled screen-print is an ironic commentary on the current culture of overprotecting and adoring children, who get spoiled and, practically, raised by TV. HuskMitNavn made an impact on his local and global art scene with his witty and politically colored, controversial images. His characters came from the world of comics and cartoons, they are both naive and reminding of the harsh social problems that are happening globally. He uses a number of different methods to portray his ideas, from graffiti street art, to illustrations, prints, drawings and interior/exterior murals. HuskMitNavn (Remember My Name) operates from his native Copenhagen, Denmark.
