Saki and Bitches in a jam

Taking place over the first weekend in August was the very first Gloucester Paint Jam and we ventured along to see how our cousins over the other side of the border held their own street art festival.

Check out the EVENTS tab above to view all posts and artists from the Gloucester Paint Jam.

An artists I keep seeing popping up everywhere is Saki and Bitches but I’ve never managed to catch her in person – until now!

Here she was covering her 3 whitewashed canvasses with her trademark cartoon-like busty women. (zoinks!)
But alas – a restriction had been placed on her not to make it too revealing as kids and oap’s with dodgy tickers will be viewing the street art.

Luckily she played ball and covered up all the offending bits and even introduced a dog to make it more accessible to the general public.

It’s always great to see quality art developing in front of your eyes and see the craftmenship and dedication that goes into each piece.

In between dodging the showers Saki and Bitches layed down the slabs of colour for the body and then carefully crafted the highlights and shadows before filling in the strong black outlines.

It all got a bit soggy after one humongous downpour but that didn’t dampen any spirits at all… everyone was straight back out!

After a few more hefty showers the sun did eventually shine strong and helped produce my favourite photo from the event – Saki and Bitches with her face mask creating an amazing shadow on the canvas.

This work had many admirers during the day including this young chap! What good taste he got! 😉
