I have a drawing in a new book by Francesca Gavin called ‘The Book of Hearts’. The Book of Hearts’. This book examines the breadth of visual interpretations of the heart symbol. It is full of artists visions of the heart and features work by Keith Haring, Julie Verhoeven, Marcel Duchamp and many more… It is published by Laurence King.
‘This collection of heart imagery highlights how a universal symbol can be creatively interpreted and constantly reinvented. It captures the breadth of art and design imagery exploring the meaning and representation of hearts.’
I drew this positive drawing for Asos’s ‘Today is for doing it’ web project.
Plus my favourite video from last year. Happy New Year!
See photos from the group exhibition ‘NEW END MARKET’ in Tokyo HERE.
I have 3 new pieces in a group exhibition in Tokyo at Gallery COMMON, Shibuya-ku that opens tonight. All the artists involved were asked to find 3 objects that have been used, discarded, second hand and give them new life so that they can once again enter back into a new market with a different value. I found my 3 objects in a charity shop, second hand furniture market and a jumble sale.
En One Tokyo - NEW END MARKET VOL.2
2F, 5-11-1, Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
www.gallerycommon.com 21st – 29th September.
Gallery COMMON aims to find new value other than a classical art and collaborates with many artists to create one off art pieces using found objects or products that have been thrown away. Junk that is lined up in the market, stuff that is broken and things that are clean but left unwanted. We asked these artists to put a new value onto these found objects by customizing them with their own twist. We believe we will be able to create a new art market together with these artist through this project.
CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS INCLUDE : Ai Fukasawa / Ayumi Iguchi / Cho-Chan / ESOW / Koi
Commission for Dizzee Rascal for his single Bassline Junkie artwork.
