Big props to everyone who came down to the Village Underground Christmas Art Market on Sunday to drink mulled wine, eat mince pies, check out the live street art jam and say a big hello to us.
We had a ball meeting you all, and are rapt that we had such an overwhelming response to our grand Xmas Banksy competition in just one day! The competition is still on for another two weeks with the winner being drawn on Monday December 19. If you haven't entered yet, you're missing out on the chance to win an original Banksy worth £2000.
If you couldn't make it, here's what you missed out on...

Come celebrate the silly season with us at the Christmas Art Market and Live Street Art Jam at Village Underground in Shoreditch this Sunday December 4, from midday till late.
While the mulled wine flows and the beats are pumping, we’ll be selling limited edition and signed prints by Harland Miller, Sir Peter Blake, Rosie Emerson, Mr Jago, Jamie Reid, Faile, JR, Dolk, Greg Gossell, Ericailcane, Prefab 77, Alex Daw, Ben Allen, Stefan Strumbel, Russell Marshall and much, much more.
We’ll also be launching our super massive Christmas giveaway of an original limited edition Bansky screenprint worth £2000. The winner of this exceptional prize will be the one who comes closest to guessing how many Montana spray paint nozzles courtesy of Jacksons Art Supplies are in a big green mystery bottle, which will be on display at the Art Market – as will the Banksy prize.
This will be your only chance to see the mystery bottle in person and – as seeing the bottle in person may help with guessing the amount of nozzles more accurately – we definitely recommend you popping down. There'll be more news on the competition to follow tomorrow.
The Art Market will also feature a Live Art Jam where artists Sheone, Will Barras, Toasters, Mr Jago and Pure Evil will do live painting on a wall-sized panel, which will them be broken into 50cm sq tiles and sold on the day.
Other market-stall holders selling Christmas goodies, such as prints, sketches, models, clothes and illustrations, include Scrawl Collective, Moniker, Black Rat Press, Nelly Duff, Nobrow, Beach London, Supreme Being, Village Underground and Hit And Run, who will be screen printing on clothes (so bring an item to be printed on along).
Village Underground is at 54 Holywell Lane, Shoreditch EC2A 3PQ.
We hope to see you there.
