The Mr Jago print will be available to buy from our online shop tomorrow, Friday 27th February at 12pm. It's an A2 three colour hand pulled screen print (by our friends at Screen One here in Bristol) Each print has been hand finished by the artist so each print is unique. They are signed, numbered and stamped. It's an edition of 40 and will be £125... Think that's it!

They've done a great job and the first exhibition from CEPT is well worth going to see... It's open until the 13th of March so go down and check it out... Well done Jono!

MR JAGO: WORK IN PROGRESS!




Took a walk down to the gallery yesterday to find Mr Jago hard at work at our gallery... It's looking incredible, really exciting... Here's a peak at what he's been up too... Very much 'work in progress' but hopefully it gives you some idea of what's in store for the opening night next week...

MR JAGO PRINT LATEST!!


To clarify!! The MR JAGO print will now NOT be available at the show next week! It is also NOT the artwork that is on the flyer for the show!

The artwork for the print will come from the painting that Mr Jago will be doing on the gallery walls over the next few days... Because the painting will take the best part of the next few days to complete and then we have to make the actual print it probably won't be completed until the week of the 16th, although we will have the artwork for people to see at the end of next week, the print will also be available for pre-order at our online shop at the end of next week. I hope this is clear! SO, the show next Weds night is for everyone to come down and see the painting, have a beer and freeze yourselves! Any questions email us: info@friend-and-co.com

MR JAGO SHOW NEXT WEDS 11th 7PM





















So the MR JAGO solo show, 'KEEP FROM GOING UNDER' is almost upon us! It starts next Weds the 11th of Feb at 7pm @ the Friend & Co. gallery, Gloucester Road, Bristol. This promises to be a very different show for us, the artist is painting pretty much the entire space (floor, walls and ceiling!) and there will be just one thing for sale!... A limited edition print to celebrate the show that will be available at the preview party on Weds the 11th, starting at 7pm. I think we are only doing an edition of 30, for anyone who can't make it down to the show there will be some available at our online shop the next day...

AARON ROSE EXHIBITION @ HOPE GALLERY


AARON ROSE... The man who brought us BEAUTIFUL LOSERS which featured the likes of BARRY MCGEE, ESPO, SHEPARD FAIREY, THOMAS CAMPBELL, ED TEMPLETON, MARGARET KILGALLEN and more... Has a solo show called 'Born To Cry' at HOPE GALLERY in Los Angeles, California... I wish I could say I'd be making it out to see the show but I'll more likely be in Asda, Bedminster, Bristol... Anyway, the show looks great and is in a gallery almost as small as ours!!

NEIL YOUNG


I watched the 1971 BBC live recording again last night... I've watched it many times but every time I see it I realise how much I love Neil Young... No one else like him...

BENNY GOLD!


It's snowing in Bristol, England... So It's been a day of trawling the web trying to spread the Friend & Co. word... That's the 'word of Friend & Co.' not 'yo, wurd'... Does anyone understand what I'm saying?! Anyway... Just wanted to say check out BENNY GOLD... If you know about him already then good on you... if you don't go and have a look at his amazing designs... word.
