The Art Car Boot

It's been a busy couple of weeks getting everything ready for the Art Car Boot Fair!

Me and Twinkle Troughton have been invited to run a collaborative stall this year, and we can't wait to bring The Bank of Tinsel and Twinkle to the crowds at The Art Car Boot. I’ve been going to the Art Car Boot for many years, and always loved it! It’s really good fun, it’s usually glorious sunshine and there is a buzzing, busy atmosphere.  It is always jam packed with amazing artists selling their work, it’s a brilliant opportunity to meet the artists and in that way it really is unique.  We are so excited about running a stall there!  It’s something we have wanted to do for ages.

We will be running our bank, read more about that on our blog here:
We will be distributing our bespoke Tinsel & Twinkle bank notes, and asking passers by to contribute their thoughts about the economy by writing them onto the notes.  The ethos of our bank is about sharing and exchange, it is a creative arena in which people can express their thoughts, opinions and feelings about what is going on with the global economy right now.  If you give us one of your thoughts, we will give you another written on a bank note, so people get to keep a little artwork and part of the Bank.

We will also be selling our prints at the Art Car Boot, and we will both be releasing brand new prints on the day, these are of the new paintings we have made for our forthcoming show in Vienna at the end of June.

Mark at Atom Printing has done an amazing job as always:

And finally we are also releasing our first ever collaborative print to coincide with our Bank.  Reflecting the ethos of the bank, it is a mathmatical sum which calculates that if we were all a little less greedy and more willing to share that affluence could be enjoyed by all.  These are A4 giclee prints on german etching paper, they will be on sale for £20 each with 20% from each print sale going to the Art Car Boot chosen charity Just For Kids Law

The Art Car Boot runs between 12-6pm, Sunday 9th June 2013

Brick Lane Yard on the corner of Brick Lane and Buxton Street, Entry: £5
