London Paint Movie

1st London Paint for Fool's Gold from Recoat on Vimeo.

Okay Insa got crazy busy in London and created two works before we left. Here is the first, the second will be up when we can catch our breath.
We left London this morning at 3am, shuttle to Calais, drove to Brussels, painted there, drove via Holland to Hannover where we can sleep at last! That's 5 countries in one day and 20 hours on the road. What a tour. Painting today rocked, wait till you see!

London Paint

Sadly Inkie has been a bit under the weather so didn't make it for the paint today. But Insa created a-ma-zing work today. Londoners get searching! Here is a wee photo clue. We'll be loading up more pics and movies as we go.

Co-Laboratory- 18th June


Co-Laboratory is our next exhibition at Recoat. It opens Friday 18th June 2010 7-10pm, it then runs till Sunday 25th July

Partnership and collaboration in the creation of art is fairly unusual due to the difficulty and compromises it involves. Yet “Co-Laboratory” is an entire show produced by no less than eight artist partnerships from all over the world. The show comprises of originals and prints that have an added layer of quality and intrigue due to being created by two talented individuals. Participants include Aitch and Saddo, Alto Contraste, Microbo and Bo130, Motel7 and Vinnie Nylon, Peskimo, Syrkus and Rekor, Tado, and The London Police.

Hope to see you there!
