Matt Ford, Blacksoup, Daniel John and John Whitelaw (the four Artists).

What a night!
The cities art lovers flocked to Camp & Furnace on May 3rd for The Art Show SS12. With four Liverpool artists exhibiting, an amazing performance by Sense of Sound, a legendary set by DJ's Cant Mix Wont Mix, plus the welcomed interruption by the 10 strong Sky Atlantic film crew (filming the new show, City Secrets, presented by Alan Cumming's) the event was hailed a triumph.

An hour before the venue was officially open one piece, Bruise in Red, had already been sold to a Norwegian Musician. This swiftly followed by the sale of my (Matt Ford) Inkblot test cards (See Below). The full set of nine went to Philip Armstrong and Tony Burke, the Liverpool fashion designers famed for designing dresses for Gaga, Katy Perry to name but a few.

Other highlights in the exhibition included Illustrator Blacksoup's graphic novel style visions of Liverpool being taken over by robots and more specifically in this shot Godzilla. Check out the other two artists work on their links at the top. 

A great start to Liverpool Art Month, Check for more events in the programe.
