Graziano's London in Contemporary Art Show

Vivid impressionist Graziano Parletta as seen on BBC's Bruce Grove Our Street.

Bruce Castle News followed Tottenham's Graziano Parletta to this year's Contemporary Art Show in Battersea where art lovers couldn't get enough of his vivid impressions of the city.

You might recognise his work, which literally flew off the gallery walls in Battersea and into the homes of happy punters, from the paintings hanging in Tottenham's much loved San Marco's Restaurant on the corner of Bruce Grove, if not pop in for some lovely food and good cheer.

Is There Anybody There?

Tottenham's Lorraine Clarke explores the Darkside

"The facade of this unassuming Victorian house hides a dark past. A former crack den turned art gallery, WW has a history of dilapidation, violence and paranormal activity. This once rat-infested East London squat was razed to the ground, not once, but twice, as if in an effort to purge itself. Despite being resurrected as a des res in 2003, the new owners were disturbed by strange goings-on and had it 'ghost-busted' before its reincarnation as WW Gallery.

Taking inspiration from this turbulent history, curators Debra Wilson and Chiara Williams present 'Is There Anybody There?'. A seasonal and atmospheric exhibition about the unexplained and 'things that go bump in the night', the show takes in Halloween, Bonfire Night and the gallery's first anniversary.

The directors have transformed the fortunes of 30 Queensdown Rd, situated between trendy Dalston and the infamous Murder Mile, into a positive, thriving and ambitious new project space, which participated in this year's 53rd Venice Biennale, the most important and glamorous event in the art calendar.

The trick or treating artists include Deutsche Bank and Saatchi collected Liane Lang, Jerwood Prize selected Annabel Tilley and Venice Biennale exhibited Eva Lis, Jarik Jongman, Lorraine Clarke, Stephanie Wehowski, Enzo Marra and Natasha Bird, plus special guests.

The show continues until Thursday 5 November. For further information, please contact Chiara Williams or 07531342128"
