Burngreave artist Patrick Amber (aka Ka-Boom! Creations), who regularly features in the Messenger, is exhibiting his illustrations and murals at the Simunye Café, as part of Open Up 2004, at 229 London Road.

The exhibition “Havin’ a Laugh!” mixes up work which reflects the darker side as well as humour. The exhibition runs 26th April–9th May.


“I’ve been persevering with my art work for the best part of 20 years. All my life I’ve known this is what I want to do. But this is my first exhibition and it’s a real landmark; it’s a statement about my confidence in myself and about pride in what I do”.

Patrick’s illustrations turn the often tragic into comic situations, having animals, animated inanimate objects or drunken townies step in to act these episodes out. Tales of seduction, alcohol, love and hate and farcical humour delight his imagination and pen.

A folio of photographs of Patrick’s murals and other work, including mural projects with youth groups and schools, will also be available to view.

Contact Patrick on 0793 111 7079.
