By pure chance we walked past the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery...

'Art from the New World showcases brand new work by 49 of the finest contemporary artists, under the curation of the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles.
The selected artists are part of an exciting new movement that encompasses all forms of media and art - painting, sculpture, printing, stencil, photography and digital art. The exhibition exposes an American art scene that is bold and provocative, with images expressing dark humor, a longing to reconnect with innocence and a fresh look at the 'ideals' of glamour and beauty'.

Among them; Dave Cooper, Shag, Camille Rose Garcia, Todd Schorr, Mark Ryden, Jason Shawn Alexander, Coop and Kent Williams.
It's delirious, delicious, weird and wonderful work, where underground becomes otherground and the lowbrow meets highbrow.
It will leave your brain all tingly.

If, like us, you've not seen this art outside Juxtapoz magazine, books or prints, and you live in, or near Bristol, you really REALLY shouldn't miss this opportunity.

You've got till the 22ND of August.
