RANDOM - Stencil Street Art - Talacre to Tunis - Free Admission
Saturday 26th - Saturday 10th December 2011
Random creates paintings of people and places using aerosol. His work first appeared on buildings along the River Dee where he was named the ‘Flintshire Banksy’ by the BBC and local press. In Liverpool his ‘Dooley’ stencil appeared on the wall of the Liverpool Academy of Arts in Seel Street which has strong links with the Liverpool sculpture Arthur Dooley.
His multi-layered work is very precise and requires up to thirteen stencils per image. Random’s work has sold successfully in Chester, on the Wirral and at the Corke Art Gallery especially since ‘Busstop’ was awarded a Highly Commended prize at the 2011 Grosvenor Museum’s 9th Open Art Exhibition.
His most recent work uses Tunisian newspapers as the canvas for stencil paintings of local people photographed during his visit to Tunisia. Also in the show are familiar views of Liverpool from unusual Perspectives including ‘Reflection on St George’s Plateau’.
