DELA Exhibition

You can now find a little bit of Sky Siouki artwork in Bristol restaurant, Dela, on Mivart Street in Easton. Dela is a gorgeous open and spacious restaurant offering a varied and unusual seasonal menu of Swedish inspired food for brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks. The exhibition runs until March 12th.

Dela Exhibition Sky Siouki Artwork

I have three pieces of artwork on show across the main back wall of the dining area. A framed print of Bright Haze, framed print of Cormorant and original painting Shore Song. All are available to buy although not directly through the restaurant, so shoot me an email at sky@skysiouki.com if you’d like to buy one following the exhibition.

I do also have an ample selection of unframed giclée prints and greeting cards available to buy straight from the restaurant in the small shop space next to the bar. Find a browser full of my prints to your right when you walk in and a varied selection of cards by myself and other lovely Bristol designers on the shelves above.

Totterdown Arts Trail 2016

57 Windsor Terrace

Last weekend was Totterdown’s Front Room Arts Trail and what a weekend! I joined forces with printmaker Abi Coombs who runs the artist collective Free Wifi Make Art and bravely opened her house up to the public for the weekend. Also showing their work with us was ceramicist Rosy Pearson, painter Jusefa Charlamow, jewellery maker Judith Pearson and fine artist Ian Barnes. We filled every space on the walls with artwork from the living room, all the way through the hallway and up the stairs onto the landing too!

Abi also made an amazing selection of cakes and jams and her partner Paul made some delicious bollos prenaos and sausage rolls. We had lots of mulled wine on offer and the fire lit to keep everyone toasty. The house felt really homely and inviting and we were all amazed at how busy the weekend was with barely a single moment without any visitors looking around.

On the Sunday we had Bristol graffiti artist Mr. Draws come join us to paint a wall mural in the back garden. He created this cute storybook inspired design of an elephant and a dog. It was great to see how the mural progressed throughout the day.

I’m so glad I took part in the trail as it turned out to be a major success for everyone involved. To anyone considering taking part in one of Bristol’s many art trails I would certainly recommend trying to get together a few people to make the house feel full of lots to see and so that you’re able to share the load as there is a lot of work involved in setting up and talking to people all day. Playing some music and having food and drink on offer certainly seemed to help people feel a little more welcome as it can sometimes feel intimidating wondering into a stranger’s home.

I’m absolutely knackered now but getting myself prepared for next Saturday when I’ll be selling at the Made In Bristol Gift Fair at Colston Hall this time. It’s the only other Christmas event I’ll be selling at in Bristol this year so make sure to catch me there! The fair will be on 10am – 4pm.
