The Collective

Who we are

Fire Monkey Arts is a collective of local artists working out of Studio One at the Hotwalls Arts Studios complex in Old Portsmouth. The Collective is comprised of 9 full members and currently 2 associate members all of whom are practising artists and/or makers. The purpose of the group is to foster creativity and visual expression, coming together to share ideas, ways of working and more importantly to share the studio space itself. The group is unique in its diversity, and includes artists just starting out, those mid career and well established artists, some of whom regularly exhibit nationally. The working studio endeavours to be open to the public 7 days a week and this is made possible by the members each taking a turn at working in the space on new artwork. The Fire Monkey Collective regularly hosts lively themed and curated exhibitions of members work and there is always a friendly and knowledgeable artist on hand to talk the public through the making process. Come and see us at work, ask any questions you have and perhaps even buy some original work by local artists at studio prices. We look forward to welcoming you.
