It Was On Earth That I Knew Joy

ITWASON

We’ve designed this 70×100 poster for a new group show taking place at the Scion Gallery in Los Angeles. All the work in the show is inspired by a short sci-fi film directed by Jean-baptiste de Laubier, titled “It Was On Earth That I knew Joy” and will feature art by some great peeps, inc: DIY, Jonathan Zawada, Museum Studio, Sanghon Kim, Seb Jarnot, Akroe, Lowrider, Benbo George…  and many more! It’s all curated by Sixpack, and there is more info about the project here on their site. Opens on 20th Feb – Should be a good one I think.

The poster is screenprinted in 4 special colours and we should have some available in the shop soon.

Adam Neate

I passed by the opening of the new Adam Neate show at the Elms Lester Gallery last night. Really great stuff – highly recommend.

Hussein Chalayan – Design Museum


We’re really busy at the moment, but I finally managed to drop by the Hussein Chalayan exhibition at the Design Museum for a quick poke about. It’s a really nice show overall and features a summary of his work from the past 10 years or so, including his film collaborations and actual samples from the collections. The exhibition graphics and guide are all designed by åbäke, so of course these are also quite special, and the guide in particular is a beautiful little chap.

The show is quite unusual as there are no captions to accompany the pieces, instead all the info is provided in the small, but extensive, 12x12cm black and white guide (shown above). I thought this was a nice touch as you appreciate the guide even more and it avoids the inevitable problem of nobs blocking the captions so you can’t read them!

The highlight of the show is definitely experiencing the laser dress in person (video above in case you can’t make it though!). A very, very beautiful piece of design.

Show continues until the 17th May.

Rodchenko & Popova – Tate Modern

I finally managed to drop in to the fantastic Rodchenko & Popova exhibition currently showing at the Tate Modern. There are twelve rooms in total, all comprehensively exploring the development of both artists, including painting, graphic design, photography, cinema, textiles, architecture and even a re-enactment of the Workers Club in room 12.

The exhibition is open until the 17th May. Highly recommended.

La Boca x Sixpack

Our good friends at Sixpack have just released two new La Boca T’shirts on their website.

There are also some limited 70×100 offset prints available, which are also featured in our current show at The Lazy Dog Gallery.

Casio G-Shock

Here’s a quick look at a new image we’ve created for Casio to celebrate our exhibition opening at The Lazy Dog Gallery in Paris. If you’re not being affected by the credit crunch yet, an exclusive one-off Foamex edition of the print is available from the gallery throught the course of the exhibition.

Squirrelvision – opening night

A big thank you to everyone who dropped in to our exhibition opening last night. It was a cold evening and the entire Paris transport system was on strike, so we really appreciated that so many people still made the effort to come. Thanks again to BKRW, G-Shock and The Lazy Dog Gallery for making it all happen! The show is now open until the 21st February (an extra week ‘by popular demand’!), so please pass by if you’re in the area.

Squirrelvision – The Art of La Boca

We’re very pleased to announce our first solo exhibition at The Lazy Dog Gallery in Paris, in association with our friends at BKRW and G-Shock. The show opens on the 29th January and runs through until the 14th February. We’ll have a lot of new pieces on show including artwork for DC Recordings, Versatile Records, Simian Mobile Disco, Nightmares On Wax, Sixpack, LoDown and WAD amongst others!

If you’re in Paris next Thursday please pop in to say hello at the opening event from 6pm-9pm.

+ To celebrate the launch of the show, we’re giving away a free download of ‘Labocatocs’ by The Emperor Machine courtesy of DC Recordings. We were very honoured to feature in the track title and it’s a pleasure to be able to offer the track for free during our exhibition (The only catch is you need to sign up to our unobtrusive newsletter here!).

Jason Tozer – Close

“Close is an exhibition of photographs that show us a world our eyes cannot see.”

I attended the opening of the new Jason Tozer exhibition at The Print Space last night. There are some very nice examples of macro photography in the show, my favourites being the close-ups of soldering iron. It’s now open until 10th Feb, and is worth popping in to if you’re in the area.

There’s an insightful article on the Creative Review blog outlining how Jason creates his images.
