This series of blogs features the talented artists participating in ‘3 is the Magic Number’ exhibition in Bristol. The exhibition was curated by four Bristol artists – Jimmer Willmott, Jemma Davies, DIFF and GUTS.
Each artist was asked to produce 3 new pieces of work A3,A4 and A5. Let me introduce you to the talented Mr SLEVEN.
A3 size: Key to my heart – above
Mr.Sleven is a sentient bean, helming from the never realms of middle earth (also know as the East Midlands). From an early age he’s been scrawling images on any form canvas he can get his grubby paint stained paws on. His canvasses and street work are heavily influenced by a long list of introverted musings to extensively long to mention.
A4 size: Smooth Valve Control
He processes his musings, inspirations and influences through his bizarre and skewed but enlightened little mind to produce works of art that are drenched in the most visceral of cosmic rainbows and stylized with the archetype precision of a seven handed, aerosol alchemist mad man. Each piece is produced with the thought and intention of giving the viewer an insight into his world and a piece of his soul.
A5 size: Cap Toothed.
At recent he’s mainly found dwelling around the colourful underbelly of Stokes Croft blaming up hip-hop hieroglyphs or up in his lab, painting his way back to the primordial om, through manifestations of meditative conscious states.
You can see these three pieces of work at The Ropewalk in Bristol as part of the ‘3 Is A Magic Number’ exhibition- on till 14 April.
