A bit of new craziness for 2011, whos bad?!?!!http://www.vimeo.com/21780145
My contribution to the Quentin vs. Coen show next week in NYC. If you’re in the area, you should come check out the show. It’s a show based on characters from the films of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino. I chose to do a piece on Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction. Say ‘what’ again. This is a very limited print run, and will probably sell out at the show. I may have an extra 15 or so of my own that I’ll put up for sale after the show’s over.
Added almost 40 t-shirt designs for Nixon to my site. Go have a look.
Camera, Ink & Type blended to make this small offering :
Not entirely new work, more of a small cache of explorations making their way to the top of the pile.
The images used were of urban areas that had been disregarded and damaged by vandalism and continued weathering and had been stripped of colour. The images were of a large electric mains supply, a flyover, and a telephone box.
The focus was on how people choose to continue to damage surroundings yet consider these places to be an ultimate refuge or sanctuary. A cause and effect, vicious cycle scenario from an abstract or even instinctual perspective.
This entry has been amended after some constructive criticism offered about the write up, so thanks a million!
Protect Ya Neck.
Still a banger to this day. Without listing an entire discography of classics, remixes and major credits to the clan founders & members, I’m just touching on the brand. Aside from one other behemoth of a Hip Hop brand to hit the globe from the United States some years ago, the ‘W’ is still a huge statement of unrivalled stature. It represents a balanced structure, a pure blending of styles and artistic vision.
When it comes to music, I can be a fanatic, showing my age, and pointing the finger at young heads and saying ‘You aint seen nothing until you saw a live hip hop gig’.
Music plays a huge part in my life. Music, like Art is an entire movement, sometimes the two collide and fuse to offer strategy and direction on many levels. Like art and its disciples, we all need to breathe it, live it and become accustomed to its movement.
