“The artworld’s most exuberant event’, (Sunday Times)
Always one of the best days in terms of the ever busy London art Calendar, a day when art let’s down his or her hair, smiles and engages in a great big Brick Lane car park full of artists, colour and some (very affordable) creativity, looks like another exciting line up for Sunday June12th…
You’ll find artists such as Sir Peter Blake, Tracey Emin & Emin International, Gavin Turk , Ben Eine, Pam Hogg, Rachel Howard, Marcus Harvey & Turps Banana, Keith Coventry, Pure Evil, Charming Baker, Vic Reeves, True Rocks & Polly Morgan, Darian Leader, Camille Phoenix,. Bob & Roberta Smith, Art on a Postcard with Topolski, Tabby Costo & MoYou, Christian Furr . Colin Self . Moniker Projects . Jealous Gallery . Nina Fowler . Cob Gallery . House of Fairytales . Schoony Jessica Voorsanger and many (many) more… The full list of artists is on the Organ pages.
Once again we’re very pleased to say we at Cultivate have been invited ot take part. Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey (Cultivate founders) will be joined by a couple of selected guest artists in out “boot”. This year we have the pleasure of inviting our regular collaborating duo of word-smiths Quiet British Accent and London’s currently rather buzzing contemporary street art flavoured social commentator Skeleton Cardboard. Cultivate has always been about bring through new names, so we are particularly pleased to introduce Mr Cardboard to the Art Car Boot Fair crowds.
Sean Worrall will be producing a series of 43 small canvas pieces, a numbered series of paintings called “Sometimes They Have Thorns (Small Ones)”, each an original painting on canvas, each one numbered, signed and on sale at £10 each and each one featuring the evolving ‘leafheart’ tag that is Sean’s signature. Once again there will be what has now become the traditional One Hundred Pieced Piece for the Art Car Boot Fair from Sean Worrall. A One hundred Pieced Piece has been produced exclusively for the Brick Lane Art Car Boot Fair for the last four years, a piece painted in one hundred parts on recycled pieces of cardboard, each piece numbered and signed and on sale at £1 a part with the intention of the art being accessible to everyone, especially to kids experiencing buying original art and encountering artists for the first time (the Art Car Boot Fair is all about interaction)
Emma Harvey will have some of her recent series of hand painted beautifully detailed vintage 78rpm record sleeves at the fair. We believe the Art Tart might well make an appearance with her delicious art tart cake paintings, badges and more again this year. The Art Tart cream cakes and jam tarts only ever come out for the Art Car Boot Fair (and she might have something to do with Emma Harvey’s slightly mischievous alter ego? We can#’t confirm that though).
Original canvas paintings will be on sale on the day direct from the Cultivate artists for as little as £10, we’ll have hand painted vinyl, skeletons, accents (quiet ones), art tarts, cardboard, words, leaves, thorns and more, do come say hello
The 2016 ART CAR BOOT FAIR takes place in BRICK LANE on Sunday June 12th from Midday until 6pm (entry £5)
