Ben Rayner for Dec

Posted in News, Photography & Images with tags , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2008 by mutate

Coming up in Nov is the launch of Ben Rayner’s Book ‘Little Buddie’ A private collection of Dogs large and small that Ben has come accross on his travels. How you make images of day to day Dogs interesting, edgy and addictively page turning I don’t know – but he has managed it! However with a list of clients that include Arena, Dazed, Vogue and having a flick through his website its little wonder.

Private view is on the 4th Sept with the exhibition then running until the following week.

The begining

Posted in News, Photography & Images with tags , , , on November 14, 2008 by mutate

Behind the Shutters is now a hive of activity. Downstairs there is welding, melting, painting and lugging. All of the stairwells are filled with artists covering the walls with amazing images. We have been told that the front of the building will begin to be painted today by Insa.

Here are some image of the beginning by Billy, the photo guy. More to come

Message from Pure Evil

Posted in Art, News, Photography & Images with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2008 by mutate

We got a message from Pure Evil gallery today who are participating in the colossal Mutate Britain – 

‘I am going to bring the big guns to the show and make everybody else wee their pants in fear….. It will be different from every show because there’ll be bloody great MACHINES inna rubba dub MadMax stylee…..’

Wee look forward to it!

pe-eA bit about Pure Evil

Pure Evil –  108 Leonard Street is the location of PE’s studio, gallery and music lab, a genuine hub for experiencing and being inspired by the original spirit of graffiti, stencil and street art.

In this location PE works, paints and hosts shows and sell artworks and prints by other street artists as well as his own i.e. Eine, Sten&Lex, DeadBeat Donnie, Le Krah, Peripheral Media Project, Highraff, Zosen, Kafre. Since the opening last year the Pure Evil dungeons have scooped up a reputation as an amazing art space with notorious parties. Mr. Pure Evil himself is always to find at the back of the gallery working away; and indeed you’ll find him not very pure and not very evil. In fact quite the opposite, but he is obsessed with the dark evilness of human history and his art reflect this obsession.
Pure Evil trys to answer the following questions such as -

‘Why do humans like conflict and explosions so much?’

“Are penguins naturally psychopathic and can they use nunchakus effectively?’

‘Is earth actually a deep space battle station created millions of years ago by an evil galactic empire?’
