The ‘Furious 5’ and ‘Kurtis Blow’ are legendary! The trendsetters and are partly responsible for the creation of the billon dollar a year rap record industry, and the subculture called ‘Hip Hop’!. The Furious 5 are to Hip Hop what the Rolling Stones are to rock. As members of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5, they have toured the world, been the 1st ‘Hip Hop’ group ever to be admitted to the ‘Rock & Roll’ Hall of Fame, and their recordings are amongst the most sampled in the history of recorded Hip Hop. And now they’re back for 2010! And this time they bring another Hip Hop Legend along with them Kurtis Blow! Kurtis Blow became the first Rapper ever to be signed by a major label, he had the 1st certified gold record for rap (“The Breaks”) and became raps 1st millionaire..!

It was these guys who made ‘Hip Hop’ a household name on the strength of records like Freedom, The Message, Christmas Rappin, White Lines, The Breaks, Superrappin, Beat Street, New York, New York, Deuce, Survival, If I Ruled The World, Scorpio and Larry’s Dance Theme to name a few…

And if that wasn’t enough for you ‘Weapon of Choice’ brings you the finest Local Acts, DJ’s, Graffiti Artists and B-boys to make this event legendary and NOT to be missed!

WEAPON OF CHOICE UPDATE !…

FIRST OFF !…

the current show running at the Weapon of choice gallery !…

WOC G FRONT NOW

Weapon of Choice gallery present ‘Mash Media’

Featuring artists:

BYROGLYPHICS

JAMES BAKER

& TRXTR

Opening preview 17th September 6-10pm

Free entry, drinks provided.

Exhibition running until the 11th October 2009

Weapon of Choice Gallery, 14 St Michael’s Hill, Bristol, BS2 8DT

Since joining Red Propeller Gallery, who were instrumental in launching the careers of Ian Francis and Guy Denning, a phenomena with a simple formula – hunt down skilled, dedicated and unconventional artists who show a strong political, social or psychological content in their work – James Baker, Byroglyphics (aka Russ Mills) and TRXTR are all definitely heading in the same direction.

Already having shows in LA, Philadelphia and London under their belts, recent record breaking sell out print releases and major works coming up at prestigious urban and contemporary art auctions in London and New York this trio of artists at Weapons of Choice this month are on their way.

With a sell out show at Signal Gallery, London, in May and secondary market pieces already appearing at auction (substantially exceeding their guide prices) BYROGLYPHICS is riding high and has an enormous following. Describing his work as ‘Kitchen Sink Surrealism’ he has, for a long while, been quietly obsessed with Japanese pop culture, especially the Harajuku phenomenon.

‘I love the way that every piece of popular culture from the recent past is smashed together into a garish soup and regurgitated into real life with absolutely no boundaries’

His hybrid of traditional media and digital imaging, focusing on human idiosyncrasies both physical and emotional result in distorted forms both subtle and extreme.

TRXTR – successfully edging his way into the US market last year showing alongside Guy Denning, Charming Baker and Case in Los Angeles and with work accepted into the upcoming Bonham’s New York Contemporary Art Auction, is seriously on his way – Obsessed with sex and war, beauty and celebrity and the relentless destruction of the planet his beautiful mashed media psycho/schizo canvases defy interpretation.

Fresh talent, emerging from the hotbed of creativity, which is Loughborough University School of Art and Design, JAMES BAKER’S painting and prints are a celebration of the inevitable collusion and blending of cultures that now affects even the most distant of societies. These strange visual creations of a ‘poly-colour’ age are manifested in the ‘anything goes’ state of Yesyoucanistan, where borders are continually eroded, commercialisation rules and fringe beasts roam as champions of hybridity all resulting in a beautiful, chaotic fusion of screenprint, painting and drawing
