As some of you have already spotted, Noel Fielding and Dave Brown will be launching their latest artistic extravaganza on an unsuspecting public next Saturday 26th November in Soho, London.
Noel (ably assisted by Dave) will be painting a giant a 20ft x 8ft billboard in Golden Square, starting at 1pm with the painting expected to take up to two hours. The painting session is open to everyone to come and watch, although access to the location will be limited and on a first-come-first-served basis.
There will be an art area with paints and easels for visitors to create their own artworks on the day, and fans are encouraged to bring along their own work, so take along your scribblings! All paintings will be uploaded to an online gallery at NoelHeartsArt.com, a new site which launched yesterday. Additional entertainment will be provided in the form of music from Noel’s favourite minstrels (and ours!), the glorious Antony Elvin and the Tudor Unit. TVO will be there to cover proceedings and we hope to get the chance to meet some of you lovely folk there.
There will also be a wristband element to the event; wristbands will be handed out at 10am and only those with wristbands will get access to a special viewing area and a signing. At present we don’t know how many wristbands will be handed out, but as soon as we do, we’ll let you know. Those without wristbands will be able to watch the painting but won’t get access to the special viewing area or the signing.
This Soho painting is part of a series of live art demonstrations by Noel, following events in London, Edinburgh and Manchester. Further events are expected to take place in December and January. Of course, we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
New information about this event: There will be 100 wristbands handed out for the viewing area, but people without wristbands will have access to the art area. There will be copies of Scribblings on sale on the day, but not Noel’s earlier books or other merch. And there’s no problem at all to get other stuff signed.
