Our next show, live illustration, street art and DJ's - Nov 4th 8pm

Two artists join together to create the next show for Art in the Underbelly, which will culminate in an opening night that will bring the audience one step closer to the creative process they explore. Tasha Whittle and As One will create illustrative, street art and graffiti influenced works directly onto the walls and during the opening night whilst being soundtracked by one of Norwich's finest DJ's, The Anthropologist.

For Tasha, this marks her return to her native Norwich, for As One this marks his first show in our fine city. Tasha's work is inspired by idioms, phrases, cosmic thoughts, nature, pattern and the little funny creatures she creates when she is drawing. Inspirations she has drawn on whilst creating murals with the Sketch City collective in Manchester as well as solo work for the Free for Arts Festival, Unconvention festival, The Chinese Arts Center and Berlin. West Midlands based As One is influenced by the comics he read whilst making his first graphic explorations with crayons at an early age. Inspired by a nomadic lifestyle that has seen him travel across the world, As One creates bold, striking, graffiti style pieces both in public spaces and on gallery walls.

Opening Night:

In the Underbelly at The Rumsey Wells,
Thursday Nov 4th, 8pm until 12am, Free Entry

We'll be uploading pics and some video a few days after the show for those of you that cant make it.

Our busiest private view so far...

Ryan's show opened on Wednesday night last week and what a turnout! We were delighted to see a huge amount of new faces at one of our openings with over 70 people through the door. It was hot, sweaty and packed out but Micheal Farrant played a gentle acoustic folk set and The Vagaband peaked the evening with a fantastic horn filled country-esque set. On top of this, Ryan sold four prints on the night.

Next week Ryan will be hosting another evening of live music and he's working hard to confirm the final line-up. We'll let you know as soon as we've got the details. It was so busy on the night that I didn't get a chance to get out from behind the bar to squeeze through the people and take some photos, managed to grab this shaky one on my phone...
