No it’s not a euhemism inherited from the 70s! Instead, I’m pleased to announce my involvement in this novel exhibition.
On the South East bank of London there’s a splash of colour and hope in the shape of 700 unique record covers.
Displayed at the Now Gallery on Greenwich’s peninsular, is a host of musically themed artwork available to buy with all the proceeds going to help refugees.
The concept is clever and clear. 7 tracks from 7 well known musicians/singers and bands are listed, artists pick one and create a unique 7 inch cover artwork. 700 are chosen and pressed and either printed or matched with their respective original artworks. But there is a little catch. The artwork creator must not name themselves, the song or the artist who created the music. Why? Because otherwise it wouldn’t be a bloody secret would it!
Punters get the chance to purchase a piece of artwork that takes their fancy and if they’re super lucky it might even be by one of the renowned artist that contributed, which this year includes: Anish Kapoor, Tacita Dean, Gavin Turk, Mark Wallinger, Shona Heath, The Connor Brothers, Helen Beard, Jeremy Deller, Lotte Anderson, Stanley Donwood, Jadé Fadojutimi, Maya Hayuk, Jake & Dino Chapman!
Now that the auction is over and my artwork has been sold, I can share my artwork and vids the ether thank all of the people who bid on my artwork.
