Monster Repair Shop

Over the last month or so I've been getting a small gang of monsters ready for their big debut on December 5th at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. They've had to be rescued from the elements, cleaned, repaired, repainted and - in some cases - augmented with new features.
As detailed in this earlier post (here), the Monster Zoo was a community arts project that I set up during the Coronavirus lockdown to give local families a safe, open-air space to gather and chat and to provide an outlet for childrens' (and adults') creative energies. 

The project was a huge success, spawning over 350 monsters and it achieved national recognition by being featured on Channel 4's Grayson's Art Club (click here and then the segment with me and Grayson is at 28:20 minutes).
And now four of them that I made are off to the Westcountry for a six month holiday. They'll be on display from December 5th to May 8th 2022. 

Here's the website with all the details.
