Cheo Bio
The mutant love child of the hip hop and skate scenes, Cheo was raised in Kingswood, Bristol, on a high-carb diet of The Beano and Nutty comics, and subsequently Vaughan Bode's twisted underground cartoon strips.

Obsessed with 'drawling' since early sproghood, he hit adolescence just in time to be consumed by the arrival of hip hop from the US in the early 80s. After a brief spell spinning on his back and arse for shillings at the local shopping centre, graffiti fired up the young b-boy's imagination enough to lead him to the shady heights of the notorious Barton Hill Youth Club in 1987. Here he found a deranged community of like-minded bodkins painting the walls, doors and floors of the club - and everything else within a five-mile radius, for that matter.

Cheo became a veteran of various drawing competitions (including one in Nutty Comic, and another on kids TV show Get Fresh) and one national graffiti championship, which he won alongside local legend Deed in 1987. Then, in 1989 Cheo hit the big time, coming second at the Bridlington World Graffiti Championships alongside local wild style prodigy Inkie. Soon after, however, the creeping evil that was the emerging rave scene all but snuffed-out UK hip hop's young-flame, and along with the shock of being busted for his (ahem) nocturnal artistic endeavours, Cheo was driven into extended hibernation.

Gleaning sustenance from video games and Japanese Manga, Cheo's talent slept like Rip Van Winkle for many a year, until the revitalised, shiny graffiti scene tempted him out of his cave for a second bite of the cake. Now older yet equally immature, Cheo has found the world just about ready for his odd and colourful scribblings.

Sebastian Clark is a print designer from London fashion label Cyberdog who has been developing his digital painting style for the last 3 years. This show will be a chance to see the body of work he has produced whilst living in Bristol.  Sebastian's style has a bright and cartoon-like quality, heavily inspired by American culture and literature, such as Steinbeck and Bukowski. His images focus on movement and composition, incorporating characters from novels and conceptualizing the story lines behind them. His paintings express concepts that illustrate ideas for both character, fashion and interior design. He works in various media such as pencil, digital painting and illustrator vector. He is exhibiting paintings made from 2012-2014 with a variety of work including concept artwork for the ongoing project: "Domino Girls", a group of rogue army girls fighting to put the 'F' back into in Fashion! Expect to see robots, girls and robot girls!

Weapon of Choice present; THE HOUSE OF MOUSE & PANDAS Exhibition by Mick Hockney

  • Weapon of Choice
Mick-Hockney-The-House-Of-Mouse-And-Pandas.jpg

We are proud to invite back to the WOC Gallery walls, Bristol legend Mick Hockney for his second solo show, The House Of Mouse & Pandas. 

Opening preview: 
Friday 31st January 2014, 6 - 10pm. 

Mick Hockney studied Fine Art at Gloucestershire College of Art and Design and Manchester Polytechnic, before becoming a commercial sculptor and working for various companies including Madame Tussauds and the Welsh National Opera. He worked on the satirical puppet TV series ‘Spitting Image’, and the Aardman Animation feature films ‘Chicken Run’ and ‘Wallace and Gromit: Curse of The Were-Rabbit’.

His own artwork uses images and ideas to highlight an array of social issues, from politics to the environment, leavened with a healthy dose of gallows humour. He has shown in several group exhibitions and was one of a hundred creators to feature in the ‘Most Wanted’ issue of IDN Magazine in 2011. After a hard day at the easel Mick enjoys nothing more than kicking back with his pipe and listening to his sublime collection of free jazz and Captain Beefheart records.
