The third piece we would have bought if we could have afforded three

Would have bought this too if we were going for a set of four

Was lucky enough this week to get invited to Precious Damage, an exhibition put on by Zero Cool Gallery. The 'one night only' exhibition featuring Copyright (UK) and Numskull (AUS) was held at the Red Bull Studio space at London Bridge, London on Thursday 17/02.

The concept for the show was simple. Each artist had created 50 works on card using a mixture of paint, paste and print. The 100 pieces were then used to panel the walls of the space. The pieces were all priced £100. Once purchased the pieces were taken off the wall by the purchaser so over the course of the evening the installation broke apart.

The function started at 7, so by the time we got there at 8 a significant number of peices had already dissapeared. It was great seeing happy smiling faces of purchasers walking around the show with their newly aquired artworks under their arm.

The bar ran free from 7-9, so a great time had by all. Thanks Zero Cool and Red Bull Studios for a great night.
