Mode 2 / Late at Tate Britain

Always great to see Mode 2 in full flow & painting live - especially when it's at the prestigious Tate Britain! Part of the Late at the Tate evening sessions curated by Louder Than Words - Mode's live paint was the highlight of a mixture of performance events including hip-hop, jazz, dance, turntablists & loads more.

Return of the Rudeboy

Congratulations to curators Dean Chalkley and Harris Elliott on a superb show!

Originating from the streets of Kingston, Jamaica in the late 1950s, Rudeboy or Rudie came to represent the young rebels who wore distinctively sharp sartorial styles such as Mohair suits, thin ties and pork pie hats. This is an essential exhibition looking at the essence of what it is to be a Rudeboy for a 21st century generation.

Out to Sea

Took a little diversion on a trip to Liverpool to check out Gormley's 'Another Place'. 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the shore, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea. Silent expectation.

World Tour - #6 Japan

Our last and final stop on tour was Tokyo, Japan! We were so excited about this stop because it was our first time in Japan... ever, in life. The minute we stepped off the plane, we were taken care of. The hospitality and polite culture in Japan is unmatched. Had it not been for the people who looked after us, Mura, Uda and Shiho - we would have been infinity lost!

We got to spend 4 days in Japan, visiting the neighborhoods of Harajuku, Shibuya, Roppongi and more. Between… read more →
