51 Degrees – Virtual Tour

Are there any limits to Chu’s talent?

Not content with putting on a blinder of a solo show, 51 Degrees, Chu hasn’t just got back to London and rested.

He has created a 360 tour of his exhibition.

We hope to be able to put this up on this website soon, but in the meantime click the image below to see a virtual tour of the Fifty One Degrees solo show by Chu, curated by Jibbering Art, Birmingham April 2009

Fifty One Degrees, Installation piece

As part of Fifty One Degrees, Chu has created an 11ft cube in the Wild Warehouse….

This is an ongoing project throughout the exhibition, keep popping down to see the latest perception altering addition….

Fifty One Degrees stays open until 6th May

@ Wild Building, 104 – 108 Floodgate Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B5 5SJ.

Open: Wed – Sun 11.30 am – 6.30pm

Launch of 51 Degrees

After the usual last minute dash to get the exhibition open on time…..

Thursday 23rd April (St George’s Day)

saw the launch of Fifty One Degrees,

Chu’s solo exhibition @ The Wild Building, Digbeth, Birmingham.

The Fifty One Collection which charts the journey from Walsall – Birmingham along the 51 Bus Route are simply breathtaking. Painted on aluminium sheeting, Chu has used various mediums to create abstract views along this “flagship” bus route. The 51 Collection and prints for sale during this exhibition will be uploaded onto our current exhibition page shortly.


It is brilliant to see Chu’s new body of work alongside a collection of his work produced over the last 10 years!

Including a full set of Fungle Junk flyers – many of us in Birmingham have fond memories of these…..

and an entire back catalogue of “Your Mum Rang” stickers on display!

Thank you to everyone who came to the launch night and showed their support.

Fifty One Degrees stays open until 6th May

Fifty One Degrees

Jibbering Art proudly present

Fifty One Degrees, an exhibition by Chu.

24th April – 6th May 2009

Preview Night: 23rd April from 6pm.

@ Wild Building, 104 – 108 Floodgate Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B5 5SJ.

Aerosol cans become unstable at 51 degrees, pyramids are built at 51 degrees, secondary rainbows are only visible at 51 degrees, daisies open up to the sun at 51 degrees, and the northern hemisphere begins above the latitude of 51 degrees. If the graffiti tradition of adopting a number after your tag (similar to Taki 183, from 183rd Street, NYC) then the artist Chu’s number is definitely FIFTY ONE.

This new collection charts a journey in the UK from the town of Walsall to the city of Birmingham, along the A34 road, the flagship route for bus number 51. This journey passes Chu’s secondary school, crosses the busiest stretch of motorway in Europe, co-habiting with a plentiful supply of pedestrian walkways and vehicular spine routes through socially disparate areas and estates throughout north Birmingham.
12 new paintings and simultaneous, limited edition, screen print releases will be shown alongside a warehouse space containing an installation created specifically for this comeback show and we can’t wait.
