An artist led initiative by street artist Nathan Bowen showcasing thought provoking urban artworks in a two day event mixing music and live painting performances. Artworks will be available to purchase with a percentage of the proceeds going to dementia and youth charities.

About

Nathan Bowen presents ‘Grandma Did It’, an art show featuring exclusive and subversive works in collaboration with Steve McCraken, Deanio X, and other special guests. A residential space in the streets of Soho will be transformed with thought provoking urban art in an atmosphere mixing music and live painting performance.

The two-day event will creatively display a selection of original paintings, drawings and prints intoxicated with ‘good granny/bad granny’ sense of humour, where artworks will be available to purchase with a percentage of the proceeds going to a good cause. It is an inspiring chance to spend your money wisely ‘like grandma’, helping raise money for dementia and youth charities.

Nathan Bowen has a distinct relationship with the city. He discovers lost urban spaces and converts them into creative action. Using pen, markers, brushes and spray, he covers canvases, papers, arches, shutters and building site walls with an energetic line, full of an explosive movement and satirical narratives. He is known for his 'Afterlives' movement and appearance on BBC1's TV show, 'The Apprentice'.

His art and life philosophy embraces a free spirit, an existential attitude where one should ‘go, create and seize every moment’. A collaborative essence has brought Nathan together with Steve and Deanio. They design dynamic opportunities of experimentation where each artist can participate, elaborately interfere and spontaneously merge ideas.
