The Pancakes and Booze art show at Studio Spaces E1

PandB FLYER 2014We are over the moon to be involved in the Pancakes & Booze pop up art show.

The one day event is taking place at Studio Spaces E1 in East London on Thursday, 24th of September 2015.

We’ve secured dozens of spots and are looking for artists to submit their candidature and exhibit their work, so keep reading on…

In short…


7pm till 2am



Pancake batter is sizzling, beer froth is flowing, and bare flesh is slathered in paint.  Indie musicians and DJs break sound waves off the canvas-lined, graffiti-strewn walls, while revelers stuff their faces with endless amounts of free pancakes.

The Pancakes & Booze Art Show is an LA based artist movement that started in 2009 and has quickly spread to over 20+ cities throughout North America.

They currently organize some of the largest pop-up underground art showcases in the country, with the best local emerging artists, musicians, and performers each city has to offer.


Artists can submit their artwork by filling out our online submission form located below under “SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION”

If accepted, there is a £10 per piece HANGING FEE to display your work.

There are NO COMMISSIONS ON SALES. You take 100% of what you sell. The £10 per piece goes towards the production costs of the event (i.e. venue rental, staff, building materials, etc.). PAYMENT (cash only) is not due until the day of installation.

There is a strict 1×1 meters MAX SIZE LIMIT for each piece you’d like to exhibit. This is due to the size of the wall panels we use to display your work. Sorry, but no work over 1×1 (meter) in size will be able to fit on the walls.

DROP OFF and INSTALLATION TIMES & DATES will be confirmed. In most cases, installation is on the day of the event between 12-5p. Once confirmed we’ll inform you of the correct time.

There is no DEADLINE for submitting artwork. We take art until we fill all the wall space available. P&B is an extremely popular show, so we recommend reserving space as soon as possible.

We will have a number of live artists creating work during the event. We open the floor up to anyone who wants to create a live art piece or do body painting for the show. Please just bring your supplies, along with a drop cloth, and do your thing. There is no need to sign up. All materials must be odour free.

Submit your application and we will get back to you as soon as possible


Most of the sales go through the artist. We highly recommend that everyone gets a credit card swiper for their phone. SquareUp and PayPal both are good options. We do not take credit cards so having your own system in place is key for making sales.

If you’re not around, we will make a sale in your absence and give you cash at the end of the night. As noted above, we do not take credit cards/checks/debit cards. If we act on your behalf during a transaction it will be cash only. We take NO COMMISSION ON SALES and will give you 100% of the cash sale at the end of the event.

After the transaction is made the buyer is allowed to take the work home with them on the spot. It is wise for you to have an extra piece on hand because you’re welcome to hang a replacement piece of equal or lesser size in the place of your sold piece. There is no extra fee for this.

You’re welcome to bring a small bin/tote/bag/etc to sell prints out of. Sorry, but we do not allow artists to set up tables to sell prints from.

This is how elephants are treated in Mathura during winter

Elephants in Mathura gets wrapped up in jumpers | Art-PieWe all know that Winter can be a cold one.

Some of you may also know that there are nice people out there, so nice that after having been notified about a possible freeze overnight, a few good people in Mathura (India) made jumbo jackets and woollen jumpers for elephants in the region.

This is how elephants are treated in Mathura during winter.

The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center helps

The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center is actually supporting this and has committed itself to help the women in surrounding villages make these jackets and jumpers to counter attack the freezing winter and its possible damages to the elephants.

Here is what Kartick Satyanarayan, CEO of theThe Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center says about the project –

It is important to keep our elephants protected from the bitter cold during this extreme winter, as they are weak and vulnerable having suffered so much abuse, making them susceptible to ailments such as pneumonia. The cold also aggravates their arthritis which is a common issue that our rescued elephants have to deal with.

We included below some of the colourful garments. We think they are awesome!

5 street art pieces about Brexit

Some of you may know this – UK Parliament will debate on a second EU referendum at Westminster Hall on 5 September 2016, after an online petition attracted more than four-million signatures. As a reminder, 51.9% of the UK voted to leave the European Union on 23 June 2016, with a turnout of 72.2%.

We thought we’ll share with you guys 5 street art pieces about Brexit

A kiss between ex-Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East Germany’s Eric Honecker

The work – a reference to a iconic Berlin Wall mural of a kiss between ex-Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East Germany’s Eric Honecker – went viral… and the idea has been copied this week for the UK’s referendum on EU membership.

A Bristol street artist created a new mural that features Trump – who has claimed that the UK would be better off outside the EU – instead making out with former Mayor of London Boris Johnson, the de-facto leader of the Brexit campaign.

The work, on the side of Bristol’s old Carriage Works, features the slogan “Not #InForThis? Register to vote on the EU referendum now!”

Kathrina was born in Mexico City and studied visual arts and photography at the University of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Her native country means that her work is infused with a rich vitality and a colourful exuberance. As an Urban artist, she produces work which is perhaps softer and more lyrical than her male contemporaries. She has a deep admiration for iconic female figures, especially her compatriot Frida Kahlo.

Over the last couple of years Kathrina has lived and worked in Dublin, Ireland and has become a vital fixture of the vibrant street art scene there.

Kathrina uses an array of mediums to achieve an extraordinary effect – From spray paints, newspaper collage and urban markers to assemblage of cardboard, door parts and even Popsicle sticks. She is constantly challenging the means of urban representation, reinventing the genre in a feminist context.

Her work is deeply tied to her Mexican roots, addressing social issues such as racial discrimination and embracing a culture without the curse of violence and gangs.

She is the voice of a new generation, producing artwork that is bold and seductive. Like Frida before her, she is conscious of the innate power of her gender. She excites the male gaze with her portraits being alive with a raw sexual energy. They are alluring and even provocative.

Kathrina’s technical ability and artistic representational skill are first rate, creating both an awareness of environmental issues and tapping into the Mexican concept of the cycle of life, seen in the celebration of ‘Dia de los Muertos’.

The physicality of life in Kathrina’s work is seen in her numerous performances and live events, which is a crucial aspect of her practice. She wants the work to be alive, she wants the audience to see the process in action and feel the creative energy as it happens.
