Make them smile!/Sphere no.9

I’ve got my hands on some wooden panels and since they’ve got 2 paintable sides I thought that I may as well go ahead and do just that and get some more double sided pieces on the go. Behold the first creation.

Side one features a new demotivational piece – ‘Make them smile’ and some snazzy colour fades.

Side 2 features a mysterious sphere floating serenely above some yellow and red flower like devices. What is it doing? Your guess is as good as mine…

What more could you want? It’s on a 60 x 40cm wooden board and is made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and imagination. Drop us a line if interested.

Cheers

Badvertising – Taste the Feeling

It’s funny how many advertising slogans can be applied to the murky world of drugs if you’re so inclined. For today’s instalment in a series we’re imaginatively calling ‘badvertising’ we’ve gone for a reimagining of Coke Zero and the classic ‘Taste the feeling’ tagline and colour scheme. We could have just have easily used ‘real Coke taste and zero calories’ but preferred the classic tagline as it’s a little more descriptive in this instance. 

Anyway, today’s piece is on A2 paper and is made using the magic of imagination, spraypaint and stencils. Drop us a line if you’re interested…

Home Sweet Home*

‘Hi ho hi ho it’s off to work we go’ is a cheery refrain heard up and down the country each morning as we happily swing out of bed for another rousing day at the office. Working for the Man is such a rewarding and fulfilling pastime that it feels just like home. So you might as well just give in and make it so. Bring some soft furnishings in and pop this on the wall and suddenly everything is better. Maybe.

She’s a homely A2 in size, is made using the magic of spraypaint and stencils and would look just great hanging in your ‘office’. Whatever that may be. Drop us a line if interested…

The Third Dimension

Ever since I watched Jaws 3D as a kid I’ve had a special love for 3D. Especially the clunkier earlier format with the image split into red and blue versions with the throwaway cardboard glasses with matching coloured eye filters. Apparently this works by means of encoding each eye’s image using the filters of  chromatically opposite colors. When viewed through the 3D glasses, each of the two images reaches the eye it’s intended for, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain then fuses this into the perception of a 3D scene. Aren’t our brains clever? I’ve even got a 3D tattoo. So there.

This canvas isn’t in the best of shape so I’m thinking she’ll make it to the streets some time soon. She can lead a new life with someone else…

Cheers

De sphaera mundi

Did you know that the Earth is not a perfect sphere but is, in fact, an oblate spheroid. Which is a sphere that is squashed slightly at its poles and swollen at the equator. Our globe, however, is not even a perfect oblate spheroid because mass is distributed unevenly within the planet. The greater a concentration of mass is, the stronger its gravitational pull which creates ‘bumps’ around the globe. Weird eh?

Today’s sphere however is just about perfect and comes complete with some fancy stripes. She’s on A2 paper and is made using the magic of stencils and spraypaint. Drop us a line if interested.

The Triskelion

On the face of it the triskelion or triskele as it’s also known is just a motif with three-fold rotational symmetry. It is, of course, much more than that. It is the headquarters of S.H.I.E.L.D in the Marvel Comics and film franchises, it is the national symbol of Sicily (where is is called ‘trinacria’) and different versions of it have been found in cultures worldwide for thousands of years.

More importantly however it is also the national symbol of the Isle of Man where it’s known as the ‘Three legs on Mann’ and a version with armoured legs with yellow flourishes is featured on the flag against a plain red background. The Sicilians also feature a triskele on their flag but theirs has bare legs, the face of Medusa, three ears of wheat and they favour a yellow and red background. Which makes it all sound a bit busy for my liking.

Anyway today’s piece is a manageable A3 in size was inspired by all the above nonsense. Drop us a line if interested…
