15 Hundred Lives Artist collective

With Graham Parker's 2 week show at Oriel Bach finishing this Saturday I thought it would be good time to mention the artist collective Graham is a member of. The group is called the The 15 Hundred Lives Artist Collective and comprises Graham Parker, Rose Davies and Sylvie Evans.

Graham is a painter currently concentrating on the power and beauty of the sea with his solo exhibition at Oriel Bach entitled 'The sea my dangerous love'

Rose is a Swansea based printmaker. A great insight into her work can be found on her blog.

Sylvie is a Swansea based artist who specialises in collage.

The aim of the collective is to "show contemporary and accessible visual art in Swansea" and to generate new opportunities for visual artists both locally and further afield. An example of this is shown in the video below. Rose took part in a print workshop in the U.S. and after returning to Swansea used her new knowledge and contacts to put together a collaborative portfolio. Local artists worked in Swansea Print Workshop and created a series of prints which was in turn exhibited both in America and then back in Wales.

If you are interested in the work of the collective or any of its member artists and would like to get in touch please contact the 15 Hundred Lives Artist collective here.
