A sunny Friday a couple of months ago, just after returning from Bulgaria (more on that very soon!), my friend Jess and I toddled over to Stokes Croft for a couple of drinks and stumbled over the Jamaica Street open studio night. I'd always had a nosy in at the Jacknife printing studios when strolling past but never known what was hiding above
Jamaica Street Artists hosts a mega 5 floors of gorgeous bright studios so we spent plenty of time looking around at the work on show. From video installations to illustration, fine art painting and sculpture, t-shirt designs and linocuts there was definitely a diverse array of work which we pored over in detail with a few glasses of wine in hand!
I really loved seeing the gorgeous work of Maximillian Malone (below) in the flesh; he makes beautiful collage pieces. You might remember me mentioning his Collage Club previously and I also featured his art in WestWorld last term.
I'm definitely going to make more of an effort to visit more exhibitions this year... look out for a feature on the wonderful Kate MccGwire soon and read more art posts here!
