Flash Trader in Cricklewood: Community art event

London artist Kevin Vincenzo Keating   will be exhibiting a new art piece  
 around Brent this weekend.

The art piece is a giraffe called The Flash Trader and has been constructed from recycled shopping trolleys.

Kevin was inspired whilst walking around London and seeing an increasing amount of trolleys abandoned by roadsides and waste grounds  He decided that he would use the existing trolley design and merge it into the form of a giraffe. Kevin hopes that this engaging and humorous design will give a message that elevates the consumer, whilst placing emphasis on style and the practicality associated with recycling in consumerism.

Kevin has been touring his giraffe around London Galleries but also enjoys taking his art onto the streets and engaging A non gallery going public and younger people with art.

 This weekend, Kevin along with his group of community artists Creative Cricklewood, will be exhibiting on his home turf. Everyone is  invited to join in the fun, and entertainment. There will be an opportunity to  have a free portrait drawn by contemporary portrait artist Mary Saxe- Falstein.  Free raffle tickets will be given to all attendees, where the prize will be a trolley full of shopping. 

The local show starts Friday 31st July 6pm at the Queens Parade summer party Willesden. followed by 1st & 2nd August 12 noon to 6pm in Keyes rd Cricklewood NW2
