205 / Rudimentary Perfection

Rudimentary Perfection

Scotland’s Recoat Gallery hosts the UK’s first comprehensive “Graffuturism” Exhibition titled “Rudimentary Perfection”.
Mark Lyken has curated an exhibition that pulls together an impressive group of notable international artists linked by their innovative spirit & shared graffiti heritage.

Each of these artists has ventured down unique paths in their post graffiti output & each offers a radical take on expressive, figurative & letter-based abstraction. These works, while differing in approach & execution retain the sense of movement, assured marks & imperfect beauty of graffiti itself.

The participating artists include –
SheOne, Duncan Jago, Jaybo Monk, Matt W. Moore, Augustine Kofie, Nawer, Morten Andersen, Poesia, Derm & Mark Lyken.

Opening Night. Fri 1st July. 7-10pm
Show runs from 2nd to the 31st July 2011.

203 / Oli Bennett secret postcards

I have 4 original postcards in the Oli Bennett secret postcard raffle this month… There’s some amazing artists in this collection – D*Face, Wayne Chisnall, David Dipre and so many more…
It’s all about the small works!

Oli Bennett was a young man killed in the 9/11 world trade centre attack. The Oli Bennett charity was set up in his name to provide funding and grants for young people with business ideas, many of who are from an underprivileged background. It operates in a similar way to the Prince’s Trust. The fund has helped a wide variety of young people in the past set up businesses as wide ranging as wood recycling, sports coaching, fashion designing, jewellery making, ceramics, Car valeting, cake making etc.

Enter the raffle here.
