The Art Sheffield Map.
Featuring old geometric and spiral file patterns, handcrafted
We now have an Etsy! You can purchase our limited edition prints that we designed for the recent Sheffield Print Fair.
Here is a glimpse of a recent project, Revealing Craft. It is the life behind 13 crafts people from Folksy, through images and text the story is told by India Hobson, an amazing Sheffield photographer. India has worked hard over 16 months to produce the photographic work and we have collaborated both India and Folksy to produce a beautiful prototype book made from newsprint, from our friends at Newspaperclub.
We are raising the funds to create this project through Kickstarter. Our goal is £6,500 to cover the production and print costs of the Revealing Craft book. If successful this first edition will go out for Christmas.
The project ends on the 24th Nov at 16:30.

Drawing Tomorrow — CIA
On Saturday CIA teamed up with AMV BBDO to bring a great event to the V&A Museum of Childhood which turned a group of children into the first art directors ever. We were one of many pre-briefed artists, below is our brief set by Kiko, 6 & Vincent, 3. We hope you like it!
We’ll be living on another planet, living in small hotels near black seas. We’ll have red rocket cars with 3 fins and wear heat proof space suits surrounded by animals with 3 legs, one eye, a beard and a yellow tail. There’ll be red, yellow, blue and white flying buses and a car shaped swimming pool.

FEAST — Issue 2
FEAST is a series of three publications presenting contemporary visual art, literature and film works that explore our relationship with food as a social event, a marker of identity, a product of history and a commodity for trade. The publication combines articles on contemporary arts practices with recipes, film histories and literary narratives in an eclectic mix that serves to explore, highlight and question the varied roles food holds within our everyday. FEAST is an initiative by curator and writer Laura Mansfield.
The second edition of FEAST takes the theme of digestion. Interpreting the digestive system as a series of processes and outputs the edition explores the sounds of the body, poses questions around what we choose or do not choose to ingest and discusses notions of imbedded knowledge.
The final quarter of 2012 includes interviews with the North’s difference makers, with a focus on Manchester, major feature on the John Moores Painting prize and a special insert by Peter Liversidge.
