Birch Talks: Dave Buonaguidi (Artist of the month)

Thursday 21st October: 6pm

1 hour long (approx.)

It is no secret that we love art at Birch. You will find eye-catching works and murals in all corners of our buildings and spaces, and to celebrate that further we are launching a new ‘Artist of the month’ series this October – shining further light on the creatives we’re championing.

As part of this spotlight we will host an ongoing series of monthly in-conversation talks to an audience – and we’d love you to be there! These free-to-attend talks will add further context, personality and relevance to the pieces you see on our walls at Birch, as well as providing a great moment of entertainment and inspiration for our community.

To start the series, our October ‘Artist of the month’ is the brilliant Dave Buonaguidi (aka Hackney Dave), who’s ‘Love Bomb’ piece (as well as multiple framed works) can currently be viewed in our main entrance of the Mansion House at Birch. He will be in conversation with experienced design writer, art enthusiast and Birch member, Gavin Lucas.

To further set the scene of what you can expect from this evening: ‘Dave Buonaguidi worked for over three decades in advertising before realising he was living the wrong life. After doing a one-day screen printing course in 2015 he decided to “only do things that made me happy” and pursue a life as an artist… In 2020 he finally did something about it.’
