Viva Walthamstow & E17 Art Trail warm-up party

This Sunday I had a great day out in Walthamstow. We had a warm-up party for upcoming 
ART TRAIL 2011 (o2.~11.September) organized by E17 for all Waltham Forest artists to show case their artwork. It all started in 2005 with just two artist that, obviously, had a big vision. This year is  7th art trail in a row with ~ 160 venues, 300 exhibitions & events and more then 1200 artists & contributors!
Hmmm, a bit more then two artists.... ;) 


So our mission on Sunday was to promote upcoming event, give away a lot of guides and have fun! If you were there ~ thank you for joining us; if you have plan to see some exhibitions ~ you are very welcome!
Here are few photos from the day all taken by Mark Burton (official photographer).

Last year I participated on two exhibitions Visitors and Clouds at the weekend, both organized by Katja Rosenberg. This year I have my own exhibition Mandalas ~ Circle of Life (oh yes!) which you will be able to see at the Windmill (Portuguese restaurant on the High St. Waltamstow). There I am sharing walls with location photographer Simon Warren.   

By then I will also write few posts about the exhibition itself~ so stay tuned :)
