Bottle Alley Battle…

GD Bottle Alley 1 I thought I would share a couple pix I have seen of my work hanging in Bottle Alley in Hastings, UK as part of the Zeroh Studio collaboration for the Coastal Currents Arts Festivals Opening Ceremony. Sadly it was defaced by bad poetry in red marker with curse words all over it & now looks like the council will take it down.
Bottle Alley 2 by GD People chilling out by my work at the opening ceremony night. Totally gutted as I will never get to see it, or even a photo with the sea behind it. Nothing. Why are people so selfish? I will never understand. I am not going to put the “poets” name up as they don’t deserve credit. But people in Hastings know who it is… Such a shame – major time and money put in this project… 🙁 GD
POST UPDATE – I was able to find a pic with the sea behind courtesy of the Coastal Currents Official FB page, so at least I get a photo of it. Not the same of course. Oh well…
Some very nice people went down Bottle Alley and painted over the bad poetry! They had to paint over it twice because the marker was so dark. Me & Booboo took a stroll this morning and it all looks brilliant so yay! 🙂

Grande Dame Does Bottle Alley!

No, it’s not a sex act – it’s street art on Hastings iconic underground seafront promenade! The mega talented animation/ art duo – Zeroh – asked myself and about 20 other artists to contribute to their project which is also the launch of Coastal Currents Arts Festival. There are over 100 columns running along Bottle Alley and each artist has 5 to cover. The theme was “Point of Decay” – Hastings Pier and Seafront is having a much needed makeover after being in a state of decay for sometime. Before Bottle Alley gets its proper facelift, our art shall adorn the walkway. Bottle Alley was built in the 1930’s buy Hastings “Concrete King” Sidney Little. A pioneer in early recycling, he took loads of different colored broken bits of glass and made mosaic walls with concrete that line the underground deck. Not just a pretty decoration, the walls helped stabilize the beach and take the full force of the sea. Even in it’s current state, it is a treat to walk through. wecamefromthesea1
Here are a few of my images. I was inspired by some science programs I watched on how life was formed from gas, water, and heat; and how we all originally evolved from sea creatures. I call my collection – “We Came From the Sea” – this is “Early Bird” and “Tree of The Dead”. We had to work in black and white only, which was a challenge for me, but as I have said many times before – I like challenges!
These are called – “5 Stages of The Baby Coral Formation” and “Origins of Man”. There are a few more too, but you’ll have to walk down Bottle Alley and see for yourself! I must admit, this is another life goal I am ticking off the list! Grande Dame – Street Artist! Woo! Coastal Currents Opening Ceremony is August 28th. Zeroh put on quite a spectacle, so make sure you get down to Bottle Alley to witness it in all it’s glory! Art should be up for 3 – 4 months! Yay! Click Pix for info! More soon! oxo gd
