Dran — I Have Chalks Exhibition

The first of Pictures On Walls two Dran shows 'My Everyday Life' opened last week alongside their christmas pop-up shop Marks&Stencils. The show saw Dran take over the lower floor space and transform it with sculptural installations, paintings and street art. The installation’s main character is Scribouille, a homeless puppet whose life is devoted to nothing but creating art. Dran has used the space to create a studio space that one would image Scribouille using to create his art with workspaces, tools, miniature sowing machine and silk screens for printing. All the usual stuff you might expect to find in an artists space but in miniature. The whole space has also been filled with original works from Dran and with so much to take in the show warrants multiple visits to take it the volume of work on display. We will be paying the show a second visit tomorrow and imagine it won't be our last visit to the show before if closes.

The second Dran show in London titled 'I Have Chalks' opens tonight 2 December at Pictures On Walls Print Rooms Space on Commercial Street. For this event POW have screen printed 100 copies of a boy writing on a wall (pictured above) and then Dran has hand customised each and every print with paint, pens and chalk making each one different and unique. This new show will run for three weeks and each of the 100, 7 Colour screen print, individually hand finished will be on sale priced at £587.50 (framed). The exhibition will be open from 6pm 2 December
