New Exhibition at Hotel Pelirocco
A new exhibition has launched at Hotel Pelirocco
Brainchild: 'Amuse-Yeux', 'Cerveau-Alimentaire' !
A Exhibition of Visceral Works by the Artist Uzi
Open Daily: Fri 8th February - Wed 20th March 2013 Midday - 10pm
The Uzi Cafe is Open, back showing in his native Brighton with this six-week extravanganza featuring his now famous children's toys sculpted from the once familiar into the unorthadox.
Brighton Babylon, The Fear, Romeo+Juliet, Star Wars and even Archimedes' Death Ray get a chance to shine within the eclectic surroundings of Brighton's populor Boutique Pelirocco Hotel.
Mirrors, Clocks, Framed works and Neon allows Uzi's vivid imagination to use his renowned broad brush to tease your mind, not just to amuse your eyes but boasts to feed your brain, so come and feast as the Uzi cafe is Open !
It seems that Uzi has been around now for decades although his move from professional model maker to Artist is realatively short, the stars have been kind to him, with exhibitions, numerous commissions, interest from Jonathan Ross, sales to Jimmy Carr and a recent purchase by the Damien Hirst household.
However his work is not exclusively celebratory as he has a varied fan base from his early exposure in the Brighton & Hove Galleries and Magazines. Brighton's multicultural community always gives him the opportunity to test his ideas and skills before unleashing them on the public nationally, so get in before fame and fortune drags him away
