Coastal Currents Arts Festival Official 2017 Poster is out & what a pleasant surprise to see my work from Point of Decay Installation in Bottle Alley (Coastal Currents 2015) as a featured image! WOW! WOW! WOW! It’s the black and white columns to the left! Super proud! Yay! The festival is the biggest arts festival in the Hastings/ St Leonards Area which runs from Sept 1 – Oct 2! Really looking forward to the Zeroh installation, they always pull out the stops and were the brains behind Point of Decay. I had originally planned to do an open studio during the month, but then the offer to have my show at The St Leonard Pub came up at the same time, so I did that instead. Friendly reminder – my show – Electric Crazyland opens next week Weds Aug 23rd and should be up for a few months. Going to be a fun PV – I can assure you, so if you are in the area this coming weds – pop down and say hello! New work – including 2 light boxes, plus mad visuals, screen prints, hand painted originals limited editions and more! So see you there! oxo GD
Yesterday I went down and snapped some more pix of my work! I still can’t believe how awesome it looks in Blacklight! Wow!!
Sadly the proper camera battery died and I just had to use my phone, but still!!! How cool!!!
I’m hoping I can get back down there and snap some proper hi-def ones while I’m still here…
Seriously I’m blown away! UV is soooooo me!
It all really pops!
Love it all! yay!
And I even got a shout out on Creep Machine Magazine! Woo! Hopefully I can get some proper images, cos I wanna make a little promo vid of it all… Or if I can’t perhaps I can sweet talk a SF based photgrapher to help… Fingers crossed! Shot some vid projections too.. Everything looks ace! yay! Stay tuned! And if you’re in San Francisco, make sure you get down to 111 Minna Gallery to check it out! oxo GD
Wow! Wow! Wow! A major milestone has been reached in my life! The jukebox light panels I designed have been printed and installed and I am happy to announce that the first prototype has been finished! And I must say it looks RAD, Bad & totally MAD! I was contacted by Sven Tepperwein of Troglodyt Records in Berlin to illustrate his Jukebox. It really couldn’t have been a more perfect collaboration! He went for a 70’s style design which is totally up my strasse! It’s coin operated. Instead of records, it pulls up mixes from several different djs – including yours truly! At the mo, it’s kept in the Troglodyt HQ. But Sven is planning to make more and set them up at festivals, bars and other pop up events. So far the feedback has been great with the sight, sounds and mechanics! So YAY! If you are in the Berlin area, you may just stumble upon it! Inching ever closer to my Pinball design dream! SICK! More soon oxo GD
