Rudimentary Perfection

Our next exhibition, "Rudimentary Perfection" opens on 1st July 7-10pm. Mark Lyken has been a helluva busy and has brought together the UK's first comprehensive "Graffuturism" Exhibition. The exhibition pulls together an impressive group of notable international artists linked by their innovative spirit & shared graffiti heritage. The project has been heralded as one of the finest of its kind to take place anywhere in the world this year.

Each of these artists has ventured down unique paths in their post graffiti output & each offers a radical take on expressive, figurative & letter-based abstraction. These works, while differing in approach & execution retain the sense of movement, assured marks & imperfect beauty of graffiti itself.

The participating artists include SheOne, Duncan Jago, Jaybo Monk, Matt W. Moore, Augustine Kofie, Nawer, Morten Andersen, Poesia, Derm, and Mark Lyken. Yeah I know, too good! Can't wait.

Heading through for this tomorrow night, you should too!
Here is what RueFive is saying about his new show...

"Deathlust" my new solo show opens in my home town of Stirling in a few weeks. I'm quite looking forward to it, even if I do find the whole "home town" aspect slightly daunting. Come by and show your support if you can and in return I'll give you drinks, smiles and some kind words. My friend Peter James will be playing a short acoustic set at some point during the night, he rarely plays his solo material live and it's well worth seeing.

Susie Wright Exhibition in London Town.

One of our favourite artists, Susie Wright, is in a new exhibition down in London soon, if the flyers anything to go by its going to be amazing! Make sure you go if you're in the big smoke.

FiST studio visit

Only a week till we let FiST loose in the gallery! Here is a sneak peek at where he's been working away for the past few months on what is shaping up to be an amazing show!

FiST- Mutant Veneer

Mutant Veneer is a solo show from FiST, it opens on the 20th of May 2011, 7-10pm.

FiST is an emerging Scottish artist. He has worked for many years as a graphic designer, his illustrations decorating many a flyer along the way. After only two years of focusing on creating exhibition work, his style and quality of work has reached an impressive level and he has exhibited prolifically now across the UK. The show w...ill feature painting, drawing, collage and sculpture.

FiST renovates the dead through altered Victorian photographs, their static gaze contrasting with his intricate illustrations of farm machinery, robots and distorted limbs, over-layed with blocked-in house-hold paint, acrylic or spray paint. He reinvigorates forgotten belongings; found, hoarded or scavenged signage and objects are given new life and meaning. His work toys with themes of past, future, anonymity and nostalgia.

“Mutant Veneer” gives us a glimpse of our own future redundant image, buried in digital archives, lost to memory, but there to fold. colour-in. delete. clone and replay.

Closing Elph down

On the 15th of May, Elph's highly popular exhibition, One One Three Three, is coming to an end. To mark what has been a hugely succesful show, we are holding a closing party we'd love all of our Recoat freinds to attend. Elph has been working away and we will be releasing a brand new limited edition screen print, each one hand finished and the 2nd in his series of "Sketchbook" zines. Make sure you get down early to get yours signed.
Elph will be on the premises and will be giving a short artist's talk at 4pm.
As ever our lovely friend Jenny Elliott at Different World Drinks has hooked us up and we have some tasty Blue Moon for your refreshment.
See you Sunday 3-5pm.

Broken glass everywhere....

Due to the window basically just being a huge hole right now I'm afraid we're going to be closed for next few days. Sorry. Back up and running on Friday as usual.
