Where were we? White wine? Nah, never touch the stuff unless I have to. Rambling reviews? Well you don’t really need music reviews these days do you? Does anyone ever read music reviews (besides the bands)? All you need these days is a link from a website you can actually trust (you do trust our taste don’t you?) and a soundcloud or a bandcamp or, and yes indeed, Telethon do indeed have an Argent record or two. Back in the last century we would write page after page describing music, back them you most found out about music by reading about it, back then reviews were vital. We’ll have some more music later, we might have some words about an art show we’ve checked out, right now there’s 43 paintings to be painted and a new piece of art for the Resonance FM fundraiser and… so no time for reviews no time for music, 43 things to paint, we’ll get in to 32 Knots and White Wine in a bit, White Wine are a band by the way, we’re not about start writing about wine, well besides April Wine… Some parish notices, that’s what today is about, that and getting paint all over this keyboard….
Did Ben Eine just say “David Cameron is pretty cool”? on the radio just now? That was a tediously boring interview just then, how can anyone be so unexcited about their own art or any art? Ben says don’t be an artist, you can’t make money out of it….
Two things coming up…. thing one, End Of The Line
Let us re-arrange and paraphrase their slightly jumbles words, this is what they said – “We’ve been painting and producing events since 2005, the east end was a very different place back then.Neverended represents a little snapshot of what makes us tick. The artists we’ve supported, looked up to and worked with along the way. It’s an organic show made from the pieces that have followed and joined us on our journey. There will be a wide variety of styles & genres and all of the pieces have a story behind them. Bring us whiskey and you may even get to hear a few. We hope you’ll find time to visit us…. Hang on, here’s the proper press release lurking in our spam box….
EndoftheLine presents Neverended: A 10 Year Retrospective –
“EndoftheLine Productions is proud to present Neverended, a retrospective exhibition showcasing a curated collection of over 200 pieces by internationally acclaimed graffiti and street artists from the Rockwell House private collection. For two weeks in February, EndoftheLine will take over the entire LondoNewcastle Project Space on Redchurch Street in the heart of Shoreditch providing a snapshot of the last ten years of East London’s graffiti, street art and hip hop community.
Curated by EndoftheLine, London’s link between mainstream and the underground, this momentous show represents a decade of Artwork from some of London and the World’s most important and influential urban artists including; Will Barras, Mr Jago, Bom.k, Sowat, Faile, Tizer, Xenz, Sheone, Dan Chase, Ed Hicks, Rabodiga, 45RPM, Candy Lo, Imaone, Suiko, Zoer, Does LoveLetters, Odisy, Dr Zadok, Dotmasters, Steff Plaetz and Jim Vision.
Neverended invites visitors to immerse themselves in a world of graffiti, street art, music and film with a series of pop up events held in the exhibition space; including live art, life drawing classes, music showcases by the 5th Element Agency & Lyrix Organix, pop up feasts and live talks. Jim Vision, Creative Director of EndoftheLine and one of London’s internationally acclaimed graffiti artists said Neverended; A Retrospective is a culmination of ten years riding on the wave of gentrification, constantly seeking out new places, spaces and walls to challenge accepted norms of traditional art making.
“This retrospective takes the pulse of East London’s urban art scene in 2016,” Jim said. “This is our personal collection which reveals the transformation of the streets of Shoreditch and the tensions between urban development and artistic freedom, and represents what will be lost when everything is glass towers.”
A small pop-up shop will also be running for the duration of the show featuring limited edition prints by many of the featured artists, collectibles and a selection of customized street furniture”.
