AnyForty Charity Group Show: Artist Unveil 27

What a incredible few months it’s been unveiling all the incredible artists and we’re quite sad because the announcements come to a end now. But without further a due, we’re incredibly excited to announce last but never, ever least artist number 27 of the incredible lineup of worldwide artists who’ve donated their time and skills for our AnyForty Charity Group show taking place at 5th Base Gallery, London from July 24th until July 27th and raising funds for the great charity Calm, and again, ladies and gentleman it’s a name all AnyForty fans will know…

Melbourne raised, London based artist Purdi Petunia has been down with the good ship AnyForty since Summer 2010, making her debut with her incredible hand drawn Sailor Girl design that’s one of the fastest selling AnyForty designs in our 6 year history and came back with a swift kick to the nuts in Summer 2012 as part of our Australian Invasion Series with T-world Journal, with her collaboration with Australian photographer Nick Delaney, turning the lovely Emma Summer into a beautifully detailed winged angel. Since then Purdi’s been doing her thing painting murals all over London, including two giant pieces at Translate Bar in Shoreditch, a sick huge chalk piece at Vagabond Wine Bar in Central London and has some superb stuff in the pipeline including a mural at Instagram’s London HQ (How sick is that?!! ) that’s all alongside killing it in her “day job” as lead digital designer at Central London studio Galvanize. Grafter!!  AnyForty’s very own super girl has something very special up her sleeve for this group show and we can’t wait for you to see it! Remember folks, Thursday 24th July, from 6pm at 5th Base Gallery, the fun and festivities kick off. Come along, bring your wallets (we’ll be accepting cash and cards) and support a fucking brilliant cause. Profits from sales of the prints, t-shirts and all the other goodies from Purdi and the other 26 great artists we have for sale on the night will be going to the UK charity CALM. You’re getting incredible limited edition affordable art and supporting a superb charity. What’s not to like?!

AnyForty Charity Group Show: Artist Unveil 18 of 25

First day of the working week and onto the last 7 artists for our incredible lineup of worldwide artists who’ve donated their time and skills for our AnyForty Charity Group show taking place at 5th Base Gallery, London from July 24th until July 27th in support of the UK charity CALM, and again, in no particular order, proud to announce another of our guest artists, and one of only two ladies involved, girls and guys it’s another AnyForty fan favourite…

Deb, originally from Melbourne is one of Australia’s finest street art exports, you guys were first introduced to her via her incredible  Day Of The Deb girl we dropped as part of 2012′s AnyForty & T-world “The Australian Invasion Series” Since then she’s left Australia and made the tricky leap to the states and has been regularly painting pieces on American concrete and is steadily covering West Coast walls with her instantly recognisable fine art and murals, featuring colourful strong female characters, animals and flowers. Equally at home creating art away from walls too, regularly crafting pieces using acrylics and oils on wood or canvas, but it’s her street art that really blows our minds. We visited Melbourne for the first time in November 2013 and didn’t quite realise how hard Deb grafts, you only had to go a few streets before you saw another Deb piece, girl is prolific with work all over Melbourne in bars, on walls, and even in shops as commissioned murals. Super stoked to have her down for the cause, great artist, lovely person and you guys are gonna love what she’s cooked up for us, it’s so good!
