I am very happy to announce my participation in a new project here in Glasgow. Recoat, the fantastic gallery in the West End have assembled a 10-strong team of artists and they only bloomin' went and asked me to join. Pretty swish, eh? I'm completely delighted and honoured to be involved because, honestly, the other 9 dudes and dudettes are way good. Waaaay good.
Team Recoat, as we are known, consists of: Al White, David Galletly, Death Rattles, Elph, Fist, Kirsty Whiten, Mark Lyken, RueFive, Susie Wright & Syrkus. I will try to get a post about everyone up here over the next few weeks. We will be working together on a variety of projects throughout the world over the next year.
To simultaneously launch the project and to celebrate their 4th birthday, Recoat have put on an exhibition of limited screenprints designed by each of the team members. Four Four Two opened on Friday the 12th of August and will run until the 4th of September. There are 10 prints going for £80 a pop including this effort, 'Submerge', by myself:
The opening party was brilliant as always - the buffet at the Lansdowne afterwards was a particular highlight. Damn those onion rings were good. Damn, damn, damn. Big thanks to Amy and Ali for all their hard work in putting on the show, thinking up the project and for running one of the countries finest galleries. Love those guys.
Stop by the space to have a look or, if you can't visit in person, all of the gear is available in their online shop. The show also features an extra wee section full of other prints, drawings, paintings and things by the team - good if you're hyped on Scottish street art and want to pick up an original piece.
If that wasn't all, the Team Recoat prints will also be making their way down to Nottingham as part of the Nottingham Festival on Friday the 19nd August at the Lace Market Gallery. There will be live painting and talks and things too (I think). My details are a bit sketchy but go have a look if you can, especially when people are around. Seeing Elph paint live is something special. Me? I can't make it. Ach.
