It's All Too Much

Art Stokes Croft
It's All Too Much, Gallery, Bristol

A jam-packed, vivid, rough-around-the-edges gallery with a focus on local artists

Sandwiched between an Italian barbershop and a fast food joint, It’s All 2 Much works hard to showcase as many artists as possible in the space it has available. Having grown out of Bristol’s art collective scenes, it has a strong emphasis on local talent. Expect preoccupations with pop culture and politically driven irony, with a liberal dose of kitsch thrown in.

No self-respecting Stokes Croft showroom would be without prints by graffiti veterans such as Inkie and Rowdy, but there are original pieces here too by new and more established artists. They vary wildly in terms of medium, from pulled prints, spray paint and stencils to traditional oils and metal sculpture.

You might not like it all, but then that’s not the point. True, some of the work may lack finesse, but more often than not, it’s made up for by passion, intensity and grit.
