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
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
A folio of photographs of Patrick’s
murals and other work, including mural projects with
youth groups and schools, will also be available to
Contact Patrick on 0793 111 7079.
