Assembly: Art in the Bar - Pete Fowler: Sŵn Festival

About

Specially curated to coincide with Sŵn Festival, the Chapter bar wall sees an unprecedented transformation by artist and illustrator Pete Fowler. Known for his artwork for the band Super Furry Animals, Fowler's weird and magical creatures from his world of Monsterism Island take the form of toy figures and sculptures, and are featured in drawings, paintings, animated videos and websites. Monsterism Island is a magical place where sentient mountains gaze down upon communities of uniquely fashioned creatures, whose adaptations set them apart from regular people and animals. Yet the islanders maintain recognisable lifestyles in a kind of distorted modern civilisation, the details of which make their world a far stranger one than ours.

For Chapter, Fowler is creating a new large-sclae colourful piece of work, painted directly onto the wall of our bar. If you want to catch a glimpse of the work-in-progress, come to Chapter between Monday 5 and Thursday 8 November.

During the Sŵn Festival weekend, you can also enjoy Fowler DJ-ing
