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

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

Open: Wed – Sun 11.30 am – 6.30pm

Chu & Others take wall in Birmingham

Chu, Energy, Zoot, Newso, Philth & N4T4 all got together on Easter Saturday to take the Rainbow Warehouse boundary wall.

The Adderley Street side of the wall pings at you, it looks like Newso’s fists are smashing section’s of Zoot’s trademark Z and Philth’s figure and starfish intermingle between it all. Energy & Chu took the Lower Trinity Street side of the wall.

Chu’s new sign looks really crisp, loving the fact that he even lined up the lamp post that obstructs the view from over the road!!

Really excited about Chu’s imminent exhibition, 51 Degrees which launches on St Georges Day, 23rd April from 6pm and then runs for two weeks.

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.

Jibbering Records to Close

Jibbering Art are very sad to say that Jibbering Records is closing on 21st February.

Many of you will know that Jibbering Records has been the headquarters of Jibbering Art for the last 3 years. Based in the heart of Moseley Village in Birmingham, Jibbering Records has served as the perfect space for the fresh, diverse and cutting edge exhibitions that Jibbering Art have curated over the last few years.

Although Jibbering Records is closing after James Dawson’s exhibition, The Shapes of Things to Come…. and Have Been, Jibbering Art will continue.

We have got several exciting artists exhibiting with us this year including Chu, Inkie, Mac 1 & Part2ism and we are currently searching for the perfect venue for these shows. More information to come soon…….very soon….

Goodbye Jibbering Records, you will be sadly missed by many people. xx

The Shapes of Things to Come….. and Have Been

Jibbering Art Proudly Presents

The Shapes of Things to Come….. and Have Been

An exhibition of original artwork exploring the philosophy of Interconnectedness


James Dawson

13th February – 11th March

Preview Night: Thursday 12th February from 8pm.

This exhibition ‘interconnects’ with the fact that much of the artwork in the show is produced with or on recycled materials and the paintings on them also portray this; by the use of repeated interconnecting patterns, abstract forms and observations of patterns in nature with a graphical twist.

To see this interesting and exciting exhibition, visit Jibbering, 136 Alcester Road, Moseley, Birmingham, B13 8EE between 13th February & 11th March.

Open: Monday-Thursday 10am-6.30pm, Friday 10am-5.30pm and Saturday 10.30am-5.30pm

The exhibition will be available to buy online after the preview night.

Check out James Dawson’s myspace here.

Jibbering Art does Berlin

Jibbering Art have just got back from a weekend in Berlin.

We primarily went over to check out Alex One, Remi/Rough, System & Timid’s exhibition @ the new 401Contemporary Gallery in Brunnenstr, Berlin.

The Agents of Change didn’t let us down.

We were there for two days and we fully emerged ourselves in the Berlin culture. The streets were smashed with Graf and some how Zoot and Newso pasteup’s popped up all around Berlin?

Zoot - Berlin

We truly loved this city and have vowed to return very soon.
