Amnesty International Live Paint

Amnesty International Live Paint from Recoat on Vimeo.

On the 7th of August 2010, a group of Recoat artists came together to create a collaborative mural at the C Venues during the Edinburgh Festival. The artists involved were Lyken, Derm, Conzo, Elph, Rekor and Syrkus.
We were commissioned by Amnesty International to paint the piece, which depicts themes surrounding the 88 Generation Students of Burma. You can read more about them, the project and Amnesty's work here and see photos of the event here.
The artists also each created paintings that explore and illustrate themes surrounding freedom of speech and specific AI cases. These paintings are also on show at the C Venues. The work will now be displayed untill 30th August 2010.
You can hear a short interview with Syrkus and Graeme from Amnesty on BBC Scotland here, its on at 1:18:00.
Was a quality project and was a huge honour to be involved.

Amnesty International Live Paint

Amnesty International invited us to bring together a collective of six Scottish artists to participate in a project during the Edinburgh Festival.
Each of the artists have created a large scale artwork that will be on show at the C Venues from the 31st of July to 30th August that explore and illustrate themes surrounding freedom of speech and specific AI cases. Then on the 7th August the artists will paint a collaborative mural inspired by the struggle of the 88 Generation Student Group, who were locked up in 2007 for up to 65 years for protesting peacefully against the Burmese government. Artists participating are Lyken, Derm, Conzo, Elph, Rekor and Syrkus. Think it will be qulaity evening and is FREE! See you there.

We opened our 3rd birthday exhibition on Friday. Was amazing, we gave 20 limited prints away to the first visitors, launched an international quality exhibition, unveiled murals by Inkie, Insa, 1010 and Veuch, raffled an Insa custom Mercedes and partied hard.
Thanks to everyone who made it down, was so cool to celebrate with you all. You can check out all the photos and artwork here.
