Fusion Exhibition- Princes Trust

Recoat is supporting an event that has been organised by Fusion to raise money for The Princes Trust. It is an exhibition of work from street artists, illustrators and graphic artists from across the UK with various events taking place over the weekend of the 6th and 7th of December at the Studio Warehouse, 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow. Many of the participating artists have shown with us, including ELPH, Klingatron, Ruefive and Rogueone. Theres going to be exhibitions, auctions, raffles, live painting and more, think it will be alot of fun and will be a great way to support a hard working charity.

Body Snatching at Pageant

It's getting cold and dark out there, the perfect weather for a spot of body snatching.

Our pals over at Pageant are working their little socks off as always bringing you new styles from the likes of Cheap Monday, CTRL, The Devoted and Married to the Mob, never mind loads of 'new' vintage discoveries, sneaks, accessories and curiosities.

They make super cool, one-off, handmade furniture by day, but are also artists who make 3D pieces which are going to be exhibited at Urban Outfitters on Buchanen Street, Glasgow this Thursday at an opening from 5-8pm. Theres even a secret after party. To see more and read all about it check out their website.
