Vanguard / Bristol Street Art | Exhibition at M Shed
Bristol has always been synonymous with street art ever since a certain Banksy took to the streets with a spray can and made history. His images are global icons and Banksy's prints sell for many thousands of pounds (which is why we love the affordable Banksy replicas by the West Country Prince).
From anarchist origins in the ‘80s and ‘90s through to the explosion of the scene in the early ‘00s, this exhibition brings together one of the largest collections of original works and memorabilia ever seen in the UK.
Presenting new and original works from Adam Neate, Andy Council, Antony Micallef, Bill Posters, Carrie Hitchcock, China Mike, Conor Harrington, Dale VMN Collins (formerly known as Dale Marshall), Dicy, Eko, Feek, Filthy Luker, Inkie, Karen Dews, Kineta Hill, Lucas Price, Lucy McLauchlan, Matt Small, Mau Mau, Mr Jago, Paris, Rowdy, Sickboy, Swoon, Will Barras and Xenz.
Besides seminal works, notable moments, key events and extraordinary artists, the show examines the creative response of the city’s pioneering underground scene throughout the UK’s turbulent social and political history. It also considers the drive for social change that underpins the work of many of today’s street artists.
Beyond Bristol, Vanguard | Bristol Street Art explores the evolving disciplines of British and Irish artists as they draw inspiration from nature, new tech, activism and history to challenge the bounds of ‘street art’, actively contributing to a new unfolding visual genre.

Pejac | Apnea | Berlin
Pejac has just announced that he will be having an exhibition in Berlin in October 2021. Details are yet to be confirmed - when they do we will update the blog.
Jean-Michel Basquiat | King Pleasure | Exhibition at Starrett-Lehigh Building - New York
The Starrett-Lehigh Building in New York will be hosting an exhibition of rarely seen artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat that will be curated by his family.
One of the pioneers of street art, Jean Michel's artwork will be showcased through immersive environments providing unique insight into the late artist’s creative life and his singular voice that propelled a social and cultural narrative that continues to this day.
Organized and curated by the family of Jean-Michel Basquiat, this exhibition of over 200 never-before-seen and rarely shown paintings, drawings, multimedia presentations, ephemera, and artifacts tell the story of Jean-Michel from an intimate perspective, intertwining his artistic endeavors with his personal life, influences, and the times in which he lived.
And just in case you were wondering; 'King Pleasure' is the the title of a painting created by Jean-Michel in 1987 and is the name of a bebop-loving bartender turned jazz vocalist whose first hit, in 1952, “Moody’s Mood For Love,” catapulted him to fame.

Tracey Emin / Edvard Munch | The Loneliness Of the Soul | Exhibition at The Royal Academy
Tracey Emin has been at the cutting edge of the UK art scene since emerging in 1993 and has remained a polarising figure since her Turner Prize nominated 'My Bed' at the Tate Gallery.
A great bit of Art news for London, an exhibition is currently running at the Royal Academy. The Loneliness of the Soul sees Tracey Emin selecting masterpieces by Edvard Munch to show alongside her most recent paintings.
Tracey Emin has long had a fascination with the Norwegian expressionist and painter of The Scream, Edvard Munch: in her words, “I’ve been in love with this man since I was eighteen”. In 1998 she even created a haunting video piece filmed at the same Oslo jetty that was the location of many of his well-known works. It is just one example of how, like Munch, she embraces even the most painful experiences to create art.
The exhibition features more than 25 of Emin’s works including paintings, some of which will be on display for the first time, as well neons and sculpture. These works, which explore the loneliness of the soul, have been chosen by Emin to sit alongside a carefully considered selection of 18 oils and watercolours drawn from MUNCH’s rich collection and archives in Oslo, Norway.
