B.A.D. Art Exhibition and Studio

30 / 07 / 18

Ben Chisnall, Amanda Eatwell, and Daisy Caird present a vibrant week of photography, sequinned sculpture, and wearable art that explores the quirkiness of people, sparkles and colour!

Stand out from the crowd with a work of wearable art! With a display of customised footwear (and more) to inspire you, come each day to watch live painting demonstration from the artist.

Daisy will be showing her kitsch sequinned artworks that are playful and full of pride. Her sculptures offer found objects another lease of twinkling and bejewelled life.

Photographer, Amanda, will be showcasing works from several projects, all inspired by her fascination of humans and their individuality.
Plus, pose for the camera with a free ‘People of Pride’ photo studio!

And if that wasn't enough to get your creative juices flowing, join us between 3.30pm - 5.30pm on Saturday for the 'The London-Brighton Line' short poetry readings by various poets and writers.


Ben Chisnall is a painter and designer living and working in London; he takes his inspiration from the city around him and work to celebrate and explore its endless diversity and capacity for change. He also hand-paints footwear and other items to create unique works of wearable art.

Amanda Eatwell has been working in photography for more than two decades. Around five years ago she chose to specialise primarily in Portraits. Her fascination of humans and their behaviour inspires her to ask questions and photograph people. Longing for the day she can immerse herself in a community, she currently busies herself with short bursts of photographic fun: creating collections of strong single-images to highlight the quirkiness of people.

Daisy Caird is a practicing Artist based in South London. Sparkle and humour adorn the surface of the bejewelled exterior of her works, but in fact a much deeper, more personal connection resonates. Her sequined sculptures explore how colour, reflection and pattern can bring a subject to life. Dressing up our lives to appear more attractive is a ritual practiced by an age of techno orientated ‘millennials’, a generation veiled by digital façade. This concept is echoed in the up-cycling (sequinning) of found objects, transforming them into twinkling kitsch characters. Remembering that each treasure holds an unconscious underlying story.
