SPG Deadline Coming up!

Just a friendly reminder that the SPG deadline is coming up! You now have two weeks and one day left to apply. Get at it!


Will someone please help this man out? He makes really incredible art!!


I am a painter looking for some help to create an art installation in a gallery in Griffon Town, from October 1st to 10th. This is to assist me with painting and odd tasks related to the project.

This is not a paid gig, and is only in exchange for experience.

Ideally the candidate will be an aspiring artist looking to work within and get a view on an international art exhibition. The candidate needs to be hard working, self propelled and must absolutely have an attention to detail.

The artwork will be in the feel of urban/street art, and will be realistic renderings of people, however, I will mostly need help with faux finis and painting surrounding the installation.

My artwork is on my website, Please have a look and contact me if you feel you would be a good fit.”
