Join Grrrr! for protest biscuit painting and banner making. See brand new Protest art exhibited in our display studio.

Grrrr! is artists Pandora Vaughan and Siân Pattenden starting out as a pop up shop in London NW5 from May-July 2016 showing their work plus others including Cathy Ward, Jane Hoodless, Joe Carcery, Nicky Fijalkowska, Keeler Tornero and Terry Hall.

We're called Grrrr! for these three reasons:

Grrrr! as in roar.

Roar as in Raw [art]!

…and the Grrrr! of the life force.

We are saying PROTEST and we are Protesting because this is 2016 and it has, in some ways, been totally rubbish. Here are some words which sum up what 2016 has been like for many:

Brexit, Marmite, Farage, Toblerone, May, Johnson, Jo Cox, Cameron, Supermoon, Trump, custard creams, North Korea, Southern England, localised flooding, Syria, Bowie, Wogan, Cohen, Wilder, Ali. Medication and Brangelina. Hysteria and Melania. Slumber and crisps.
