Share this post

Last saturday (26th Sept) saw the Invada Invasion at the Colston Hall and in amongst the musical extravaganza there was a small art show tackling a somewhat thorny subject under the title of ‘An alternative portrait of Edward Colston‘. Organised by ‘Friend & Co’, the exhibition contained artwork from Russell Maurice, Andy Council, Mr Jago, Paris, Ben Eine, China Mike, Asbestos, Acerone and Myself (far left on pic – thanks Tom). It was a good night all round and as far as i could make out the punters liked the pieces too…
