DEBUT Contemporary Xmas Pop up Shop 10th-11th Dec

6 Dec

An exciting Pop-Up Shop will take place for one weekend only (Dec 10th-11th) at Debut Contemporary Gallery on Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill. Each of the original works will be sold at £99 & will be generously framed free of charge by our sponsor One Stop Frames.

Arrive early to get your hands on some fantastic pieces. Enjoy what you see, & think about your friends & family who would love to have an original piece of artwork.

The Pop up shop will help us raise funds to bring our works to OCCCA exhibition, in Los Angeles!  Find out more on the Debut Gallery Blog: http://debutcontemporary.wordpress.com/london-calling www.facebook.com/events/317770091583790

Any additional donations are welcome. The artists will appreciate your invaluable support for their cause.

For the event I’m presenting I wish or Wish Xmas’ Tree – Summer and Winter. Christ Redeemer, a symbol of Rio de Janeiro, becomes a Christmas tree. Inside its shape I wrote my wishes/desires in small tags. The yellow and green ‘tree’ represent Brazil and its Tropical Summer Christmas, what until I moved to London was the only Christmas I knew. The green and red tree is the Snow Winter Christmas, which is my how my Christmas is now…

On the left hand side of both works there’s a small gold pocket with blank papers and nails so who buys it can write its own wishes.

I wish @ Poetical Cabaret 8th Dec

6 Dec

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one…”    John Lennon

I wish is a work inspired my by habit of wishing all the time… So, let’s dream together! I’ll bring the wish rope to the next Poetical Cabaret, Dec 8th Thursd, at the Moustache Bar (address below), from 8-11pm.

Is there anything you want badly? Close your eyes, think of it… Ok, open! Write it down on a rag, hang it on the rope, and I’ll do the rest for you. According to a Tibetan tradition people take flags with their desires to the top of mountains because they believe that when the wind blows it carries their dreams with it, making them true. Well, as Tibet is a little bit far, after the Cabaret I’ll bring the rope to Primorse Hill instead and let the wind blow, so I’ll make sure all our wishes will became true!

Poetical Cabaret is an event with the best line-up around! Burlesque, poetry, surprise theatre, comedy, art exhibitions, and all kinds of music.
