Scrawl • 15 years

Proud to be involved in the 15th anniversary celebrations for the Scrawl Collective. In 1999 Ric Blackshaw released the book "Scrawl - dirty graphics and strange characters", a visual feast charting the influence of graffiti, DIY punk ethics, comic books and street art on mainstream visual culture. 15 years later Ric is 'getting the band back together' with live art from the original Scrawl Collective three, Will Barras, Mr Jago and Steff Plaetz - plus numerous new artworks… read more →

Mo'Wax • Build and Destroy • Saatchi Gallery

The music of James Lavelle's record label Mo Wax has always been synonymous with great artwork & design. The new show 'Build and Destroy' at the prestigious Saatchi gallery is testament to that fact. The show features works by artists such as Robert Del Naja and Futura from the Mo'Wax 'Urban Archaelogy' Archive - also superb new work from the labels original designer Swifty.

Here's a few pix from the opening reception.

Lucy McLauchlan Exhibition

Check out Lucy McLauchlan's superb new show "Marking Shadows". It's been a pleasure watching Lucy's work develop over the years - perhaps this is her most accomplished show to date. Moving away from her figurative style towards a more abstract and minimal approach - this is a sublime & distinctive collection - a calming antidote to 'urban overload'. Here's a few photos from the reception...

Back to Brazil - Kingsley Davis

Check out "Places & Spaces / Faces of Brazil" by photographer Kingsley Davis.

In June Kingsley visited Sao Paulo in Brasil, where he spent 2 weeks capturing its people, fashion, culture and of course the buzz of the World Cup. The last few days were recorded in Rio De Janeiro on Copacabana beach. A series of portraits were taken of the local people straight after the Brazil v Chile game where the host nation edged a victory on penalties.

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.

at Somerset House, London - until 25th Aug (free admission!)… read more →

Urban Archaeology: 21 Years of Mo'Wax

James Lavelle's Mo Wax exhibition is a real treat for music / design & art lovers. From the early days of Swifty's signature 'phat graphix' through to Futura 2000's inimitable art - not to mention the music from the likes of Attica Blues / DJ Shadow / DJ Krush - Mo Wax was surely more than just a record label - its our social history!

Here's a few pix / sneak peak from last night's opening party >>>

Mitchy Bwoy
(Homosapien Typographicus)

A new and unique organism, the Typographicus (common name: Mitch) was discovered about a decade ago in West London, however his place of origin is thought to be somewhere around the Shires of Northern England.

Generally friendly and good natured, Mitch enjoys work in equal measure to play. He requires constant visual stimulus and a strict diet of good music in addition to supplements of irreverent humour and spontaneity.

Mitch is a habitual creature, happily spending most of the day creating distinctive designs and illustrations for other discerning mammals. This is essential for the breed’s well-being.

Neither overly dominant nor overly submissive, Mitch is usually well-behaved, but may have a tendency to snore and does experience flatulence on a regular basis.
