INTRODUCTION

We’ve set this group up as the founder Helen aka Elluse, was finding it hard to exhibit her art without having to pay for the privilege and started to think of setting up some exhibitions in cool architectural buildings.

We are UK North Artists who work full-time in various sectors and get together on the weekends and evenings. We create Edgy, Punk, Raw, Alternative, Hedonistic, Escapist, Still Life, and anything else that floats our boat art-wise. We are politically inclined as Left Wing rather than Right but are not outright political.

We find the way art is graded and used by businesses is missing the point. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that! If we as a society all did art and stopped grading artists, it would make the whole thing less depressing and self-destructive.

“Art to me is not about business or making money but a way to live your life that doesn’t embrace the western society concept of buying products and throwing them away. If more people became artists, it would be better for the planet and people’s mental health.” – Helen Jones, Founder of Fractured Artist Collective.
