by Tina Altwegg
Tina Altwegg aka Winged Fox has been drawing since she could hold a pen. Her main inspirations are the animal world, fantastic kingdoms and folktales, but then there is the dancing, friends, laughter, riding a Vespa, and all things decorative. Her style has had many influences, such as Art Nouveau, da Vinci sketches, vintage posters, manga art, and Canadian Native art, but… is such a list ever exhaustive?

‘British & Californian Street Life’
Exhibited May 2015
Sian’s exhibition at Harveys Cellars in May 2015 examined a slice of British and Californian life – a blend of gritty black and white soulful essence of British city life and a glimpse of colour, vibrance and quirkiness of California life.
Exhibited January 2015

Julian Quaye is a commercial artist with over 25 years experience. He began as a graphic designer in the 80s, producing screen-printed designs for clothing. By the 90s he was specialising in custom freehand airbrushing; anything from motorcycles and crash helmets to murals and backdrops.
Bristol-based Julian made the transition to the gallery art scene sooner than most and his works have appeared in Urban Contemporary auctions alongside Banksy, Mau Mau and Damien Hirst.
Exhibited April 2013
Liz’s portfolio is an eclectic mix of works, ranging from Photoshop illustrations, drawings, mixed media paintings, illustrated official documents and oil painted street signs. Her works are a commentary of modern life today, often touching on the dark and twisted realities of life but applied with comically humorous undertones; the brutal honesty of her work can sometimes be provocative and disarming to the viewer.
‘Portraits & Landscapes’
Exhibited January 2013
This series of paintings is mainly inspired by Eva’s connection to Bristol and its surrounding counties, landscapes and people. Having lived in Bristol all her life she feels a natural affinity with its architecture and the people who live here.
Exhibited November 2012
Mark’s exhibition in November 2011 opened the Harveys Cellars Art Gallery and showcased large paintings of six women, each initially very striking and each with a different story. For example, one has a cascade of letters and words in her hair that are from a love song.
Mark kept each women’s history under wraps and kept us guessing as to who they were and what stories might be behind their beautiful pictures.
