HangFire proudly present: COLLIDE a solo exhibition by SLED ONE.
Sled One is a Bristol based artist whose style of contemporary graffiti art mixes concepts of stunning realism, fine art and abstract expressionism.
His ability to translate a vibrant imagination is distinctly unique, creating characters that leave the viewer feeling nostalgic whilst delivering an intense level of humour. It is evident that the work Sled One has produced for COLLIDE is dynamic, zealous and fearless.
Sled One's style, imagination and originality places him firmly in the zeitgeist as he continually pushes himself within his art and questions our expectations of form and reality.
COLLIDE is Sled One's first solo exhibition and HangFire welcome you to the preview opening on Friday March 6th at HangFire, 49 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol. BS3 1EN
More info can be found on our Facebook event page: COLLIDE
HANGFIRE are proud to present: TEN YEAR TOURIST
A raw and uncut photo/video exhibition from one of the U.K’s most prolific international graffiti artists; Donny ‘MIDAS’ Steel.
'TEN YEAR TOURIST' explores the lifestyle and adventures of MIDAS during his first 10 years as a train-writer. This exhibition will include documentary style photography and video shot by MIDAS, as he travels through various international transit systems, with eyes fixated on one goal…to write on trains. Whilst most of us holiday abroad, crowded together with other like-minded Brits exhausting the sandy shores of European coastlines, MIDAS shows us his idea of what being a tourist means to him.
Show opens 7pm, 7th November at HANGFIRE - 49 North Street Bristol. BS3 1EN

We took the new Yard Master paint, from AVT out for a spin. Does what it says on the tin, only downfall is the shape of the cans, for all those who carry paint in a box, it's not the easiest to get out or put back in, when you're in a mad rush, so take a bag!
Bolt cutters and Hi-Vis not included. Buy yourself some Yardmaster!
