I am back at Altrincham Market for the whole of this weekend, and I’ll have my new Cale Green, Davenport, Marple and blue ‘barth’ for sale. www.statementartworks.com
Today I am doing a special event for Beechwood Cancer Care at their annual fundraiser at the Hilton hotel in Manchester, and on Saturday and Sunday I am at Altrincham Market. Check out www.beechwoodcancercare.co.uk
Good to be in central Manchester again, and two of my latest posters will definitely be on sale - the manifesto and the Mancunian Way.
Cheers - Eric
Ayup, Easter greetings from Statement Artworks. We're at Altrincham market today (Friday), Saturday and Sunday, and at Knutsford on Sunday, and while it may be brass monkeys, you'll get a warm welcome from me and my wife Jane. As usual I'll have all the local stuff (Altrincham, Urmston, Timperley etc) for sale, as well as newbies Wythenshawe and the Manchester Manifesto. Oh, and I've got a new range of birthday cards featuring my Mancunian Way poster! Hopefully see you there - Eric
It's a strong and stable composition...or is it a composition of chaos? Hey, who cares about cheap slogans, it's just a picture painted by me about Sale in Greater Manchester, or is that Cheshire, or should we just say Trafford? Goddamit, why can't things be clear-cut in life? One thing I do know, though, is that this is my first framed A2 print of my new Sale picture (it's signed accordingly), and it's going on sale (more confusion) this Saturday and Sunday at Altrincham market, for £50, or you can reserve it, by emailing on firstname.lastname@example.org. First come first serve, first past the post, that sort of thing, just to labour the political metaphor. Anybody would think some kind of strange, weird election had taken place! Of course I'll have lots of smaller framed and mounted versions, too. We are also at the Northern Quarter market on Sunday.
And just one last thing. Went to London on Monday and Tuesday, and my London poster (also attached) never seemed more appropriate. Had a great time in Twickenham (very nice) with our lovely mates, and then it went downhill in the city itself. Southwark, home of Tate Modern, used to be our favourite bit, but now it looks like an even worse Dubai - crap apartment blocks creating wind tunnels, noice, congestion and a dystopian cityscape straight out of Orwell. Vile, and then we paid over £10 for two pints in a bog-standard pub. How do people cope with that? Ah, that train to Piccadilly...
Anyway, hope to bump into you in wonderful Altrincham and theNorthern Quarter over the weekend.
OK, it's not the Bermuda Triangle, but it still has its own mythology and mysteries. Bordered by the Ship Canal and the Mersey, Urmston, Flixton and Davyhulme are virtually unknown to people from outside the area - the proverbial end of the line. But when outsiders do stray into that triangular patch, they are often pleasantly surprised by the leafy streets, fine houses and semi-rural oases, and the Urmston Bookshop is an absolute gem. Just one elephant in the room, which people try to ignore but can't - the sewage works. You can buy this poster through statementartworks.com or you can buy it at Knutsford and Altrincham markets this weekend (Feb 6-7).Read More
