Had a busy but fun few weeks from making new artwork and seeing my number one music inspiration Omar Rodríguez-López performing with new band Antemasque, to promoting the Arthur and Merlin film in London’s Comic Con. I even snuck in a cheeky visit to the Tate to see an exhibition from one of the all time greats Malevich.
I am currently working on a series of block prints that play with depth using a mono printing style. I will be posting a more in depth blog soon on these so stay tuned.
Arthur and Merlin visit Comic Con
The first outing to promote Arthur and Merlin went really well and looked great amongst the vibrant madness of this year’s Comic Con in London’s Earls Court. Here are a few images from the Saturday.
I feel very lucky to have timed the visit to London so well to catch this fantastic show at the Tate Modern. During my Masters I delved into the world of abstraction and found Malevich’s work challenging me to ask questions and further my dialogue with images and art construction. I also love the style of his works and have since used him as a vibrant place to visit for inspiration. There was such a great range of work there. Anyone who knows me will know that I love seeing process and that I often find this more interesting than looking at the finished pieces on their own. This show had sketches and research works as well as the beautifully exhibited final pieces. I especially liked the recreation of the show in which saw the Black Square hung high up in the corner.
Anyway, what I would like to say is you should check him out if you don’t know who he is as its great. Really great.
The new offerings from Omar Rodríguez-López. I cant say enough good things about this crazy talented human. Such an amazing night and a rare opportunity to see him and Cedric up so close. I left feeling ecceptionally inspired to get on with my recording of an EP. I will post updates on this as and when but I aim to bring something out in 2015.
Please go and check them out.
Their album is out in November.
Look out for a film or two coming soon, I've lined up a large project that should be finished in 2 weeks. Very excited.
