Artcore International and Hotel Elephant are pleased to present Artcore International 14, a four-day Arts Festival taking place in SE1.
The first of an annual showcase of works created by its members, Artcore International 14 provides a unique opportunity to discover a wealth of talented practitioners currently working in London. Spread across two warehouses, Hotel Elephant’s non-traditional gallery spaces offers an alternative visitor experience, by enabling a vast range of work to exist together in one space.
Presented as a journey through the current Artistic practises of its members, the festival rubs Street Art and 3d Mapping, up against contemporary Painting and Photography, Kinetic Sculpture and Performance against Ceramics and Drawing.
During this four-day festival, visitors will be able to experience, the 15-foot fire-breathing dragon created by Paka The Uncredible alongside the satirical photography of Joe Giacomet. The eight-piece soul band Vibrations of Sound share the bill with the bass heavy break beats of Jason Warlock from the Rag and Bone label. Plus, established documentary filmmakers such as Jes Benstock, screening work beside upcoming makers of short fiction film, including Dan Moss.
Artcore International 14 includes work by Artists from groups such as, Mutoid Waste, Whitecross Street Party, Mad in England and Dotmasters.
There is Free Entry to the whole of the Artcore International 14 programme.
My trip to the states meant that i’ve only just signed, numbered and embossed the ‘High Roller’ prints. 50cm x 70 cm, they are a 11 colour silk screen on 375gsm Lambeth Drawing Cartridge paper, an edition of 50 printed by the amazing Mesh in Bristol. They are available from Graffik Gallery for £150. Sorry for the delay, it was tricky print job with so many colours and took a couple of screens more than were first produced to get it looking more like the stenciled version. Thanks for your patience, think the wait was worth it!
It’s been a long association with the Buzzers, The Dotmasters and the C6 disaster unit provided the visuals for their 30th tour around the UK. Touring with a band is one of the best reasons for traveling around the country and hitting walls late at night we’ve ever found. This is the second album cover i’ve done, having already supplied the artwork for 30th’s tours subsequent Live album. It’s the Buzzcocks first full release on LP, CD, Download since 2006′s ‘Flat pack Philosophy’. The Album was funded by pledges online and show that the buzzcocks still have their finger on the pulse as far as new tech methods are concerned (I remember Pete Shelley’s ‘Telephone operator’ in 1983 working as a 8 bit video on the ZX Spectrum). I look forward to getting my hands on a vinyl copy available here. A big thanks to Joe Giacomet for doing all the photography and layout.
I’m working on a silkscreen print at the moment of the cover, hand pulled in a few colour ways that i will release details of through this blog later in the month….so stay tuned.
