Recoat are celebrating their 10th anniversary this July with a massive group exhibition called This Will Ruin Everything at The Lighthouse in Glasgow and by creating an amazing 192-page hardback book documenting the staggering amount of work they've produced and/or facilitated since 2007.
I'll write more about the show (which I'll be part of) and for my deep love for Recoat later but, for now, I really want to point you towards the Kickstarter page for the This Will Ruin Everything book. To successfully fund the printing, Recoat need to hit a target of £11,000 in the next couple of weeks. They're on-course but, as with all Kickstarter projects, it'll only happen if people make a continued effort to help out.
If you know Amy and Ali, have visited Recoat or dig the work of any of their collaborators (like me), it's a no-brainer. Buy yourself a copy and feel good for doing a good deed. To enjoy 10 years of their amazing work in Glasgow (and beyond) FOR FREE and not chuck £30 their way makes you a shite.
If you're not familiar with Recoat, please, please, please take a look at the page anyway. The book'll appeal to anyone with an interest in public art, graffiti, graphics, illustration and any weird blend of the above. Beyond that, there are a ton of reward tiers offering everything from tote bags to prints (including one of mine!) to full-on murals on your car, in your house, at your place of work or on any wall you have authority over. If you own a business and want it to, y'know, look the business, this is an opportunity to do something amazing for your workplace and for two of the hardest working artists in Scotland.
