We are majorly excited to be taking Paint Jam’s POP UP ART studio to the Affordable Art Fair, Spring 2017 – in the heart of London’s Battersea Park.

The theme of the fair is ART & WELLBEING, a concept that is close to our hearts, in our mission to offer ART FOR EVERYONE .

In our Paint Jam workshops we will be getting you inspired by abstract expressionism, Jackson Pollock’s Splatter painting, Outsider art with Yayoi Kusama (I know she’s very famous but she has an outsider artist approach and that’s what counts), and pioneering abstract female artist Hilma Af Klimt. We have also produced a special ART & SOUND meditation recording that people will plug into, and be inspired to draw the sounds they hear! Instrumentals by innovative female sound artist BUNTY.

If you’d like to know more on Paint Jam London’s beliefs on Art & Wellbeing, our founder Dalia Zermon was invited to write a special article for the Affordable Art Fair – have a read.

All art materials were provided by our Affordable art Fair partner CASS ART – our favourite London art shop!

EE Paint Jam team building event – a lá POP ART!

IMG-20170224-WA00053287-024

Read the TESTIMONIAL by Sarah Foster of EE.

EE were in the pop up art studio last week – painting pop art style, or Roy Lichtenstein style to be precise. The group did pop art portraits of each other to warm up, then they were given an art challenge – to paint Roy Lichtenstein’s famous 1962 painting ‘Masterpiece’ on large communal canvases, in teams of 4. All happened in our Secret Holborn space. Here’s what EE did…

 Sarah Foster’s Testimonial

 

‘Paint Jam turned out to be the perfect team building event for us! We’ve tried various things in the past and we have a few team members who are really opposed to ‘organised fun’…even they had a fantastic time. It didn’t feel too forced. Everyone was engaged from intro to the very end. Dalia and the team linked the theme of the workshop back to our team objectives so it was fun but relevant. The location worked well and I love the idea of secret locations around London. The DJ was fantastic and played some excellent music. Everyone left the session in such a good mood and couldn’t wait to get the finished canvasses back. I’d highly recommend Paint Jam for anything from a corporate team building event to a birthday party or even a hen party. The options to add food and drinks are great too. Dalia can flex around the needs of the group (various art themes to choose from and for us it was great to have some prosecco and snacks during the afternoon). We’ll be recommending Dalia and the Paint Jam team to the rest of our business for future events! Thanks Paint Jam! Sarah@EE’

Kilburn Grange Park – 100 Year Anniversary Exhibition, 2014.

We are very please to be curating this multimedia art heritage exhibition. We’re currently setting up the unique space – a venue built in
the centre of Kilburn Grange park, known locally as the ‘park hut’.

My foreword to the exhibition:

Kilburn Grange, a park and public space for recreation and reflection, but also a private space with different meanings to each individual, past and present.  A space to play  football, walk the dog, attend community festivals, a place for young people to congregate, and a quiet spot on a bench for contemplation –  Pilgrims walked past this space on their way to sacred spots in Aylesbury – today people spill into it from the Black Lion pub on a sunny day.

This exhibition celebrates the memories, wishes  and uses of the park in the last 100 years. The art works include installations, film, paintings, illustrations, sculpture, and photography, with a focus on community engagement, identity and park objects.

The exhibition spaces have been chosen to be as close to the park as possible, The Lodge being inside Kingsgate community centre – an important and valued centre for community engagement,  and artistic talent, which backs onto the park…and the Park Hut – in the very heart of Kilburn Grange Park.

Curator, Dalia Zermon – founder of Paint Jam London. Watch the film by Anna Bowman

ALI MILLER ‘Cut Out Memories’: art exhibition & party at Le Meridien Piccadilly, 2014

We are delighted to present ‘Cut-out memories’, a bold body of art by Ali Miller, curated by  Paint Jam London at Le Meridien Piccadilly.

WP_20140408_16_43_37_Smart

 

logoIn celebration of the Matisse ‘Cut-out’ exhibition at TATE, this exhibition has been commissioned by          Le Meridien Piccadilly, Tate’s partner.

cut out memories image2079-gMoving money

 

A melange of the artist’s nostalgic memories of home, culture and identity – both literally and metaphorically, the artists’ work is always an expression of her life, chapters in her story, through symbolic visual meanderings.

‘Cut-out memories’, a deliberate double entendre, pays tribute to painful as well as fond memories – some of which we’d like to cut-out.

The playfulness of life and reality of our mortality are central themes, showing up in whimsical juxtapositions – laughing figures, skulls and domestic objects – making for surreal scenes.

The materials used in Ali’s arresting cut-out works, are found objects from her family home –  childhood books, her late father’s 60’s & 70’s magazine collections, old encyclopaedias, often set on original William Morris wallpaper pulled from her very childhood walls.

At the heart of Miller’s work is a recuperative, restorative gesture that seeks to reawaken an object’s previous life and transform it into something that has a new life, for a new owner.

Bringing life back to forgotten and discarded household goods, Miller’s artwork is led by an ideology that favours, and an independent practice that honours the possibilities of recycling.  Treating vintage or retro ceramics to her intuitive and skilful reworking, Miller borrows from the past to revitalize hidden gems for future use – creating framed cut-outs, as well as up-cycled vintage crockery, imprinted  with her memories.

20140529_182600       WP_20140408_16_45_31_Smart

 

An Ali Miller inspired afternoon tea will be created especially for the show, and check out our ARTY TEA PARTY events,

in celebration of the amazing tea sets and home ware Ali is so famous for.

 

The show will run from Tues 8th April – 31st May.

Exclusive exhibition party – 29th May – limited places – RSVP.

Exhibition & opening party: Charlotte Posner – ‘The Ring Series’ – at Le Meridien Piccadilly, March 2014

pink ring  DSC_0041   usb pis 023

We are delighted to be exhibiting ‘the ring series’ by Charlotte Posner at Le Meridien, Piccadilly.

‘The ring series’ by Charlotte Posner   4th -31st March 2014 

Curated by Paint Jam London & sponsored by Solange Azagury Partridge.

Charlotte Posner is a vivacious contemporary London artist – this collection of 9 vibrant oil paintings, and jewel frog sculptures, show the lustrous quality of  jewels but with a pop-art feel.

Have I caught thee, my heavenly jewel? William Shakespeare

The Exhibition Comprising nine original canvases, emerged as part of an ongoing artistic exploration into precious materials and intricate surfaces.  Weaving close observation with imaginative design, and rendered in brilliant colour, each work appears as a standalone piece in which canvas and oil paint morph into lustrous jewel and gold, emphasising the historical affinity of this traditional medium with the luxury and prestige of that which it represents, further aggrandised by scale. The rings, by gleaming and blinging ask the question, what’s the value of  a piece of art, and the wider question what is value?

000001

Le Meridien chef Michael Dutnall has created a special afternoon tea in celebration of the exhibition: the “Arty Afternoon Tea”. This afternoon tea features a special cocktail, the “Diamonds Last Forever”. A colourful Vodka creation, this cocktail can also be enjoyed on its own for the duration of the exhibition.

Paint Jam London is delighted to be curating  contemporary art exhibitions at Le Meridien, Piccadilly. In resonance with Le Meridien’s inspiration and interest in art and culture, Paint Jam London will be connecting Le Meridien with contemporary London based artists in a series of exhibitions in 2014.

ALL ART WORKS & SIGNED PRINTS are available in our on-line ART SHOP.

Paint Jam London is an innovative art company based in London. We run inspiring art workshops and events, show art works, feature artists and sell art and prints.
