Inside Teddy Baden’s kennel

Posted in Art, Photography & Images with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 19, 2010 by jack lomax

Is Mutate cornerstone Teddy Baden the most proficient stencil artist in the world? I don’t know, I’m just asking. These new pics from his studio don’t do it justice, but he’s working until he’s dog tired here:

Teddy has been grafting and cutting and spraying and creating a new breed of dog, drawing on the Eastern European infulence of the Weimaraner, a legendary hunting beast:

Expect his new work to feature promiently in up coming Mutate related events in and around town, and if you haven’t seen his piece on Whitecross Street hurry up, it’s been there for a year and there’s more coming:

Dogs own the streets now, surely you’ve noticed?

Look deep into Chu’s box…

Posted in Art, News, Photography & Images with tags , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2010 by jack lomax

So, Mutate’s Captain of British Industry, Gwarm built a box for chew with some other handy heroes. You can see a timeplapse of it’s erection here. Now, there have been a few eye tricky perspective painings (or Trompe D’Oeil if you feel like being a length) doing the rounds on the tinterweb of late – so Chu stepped up and smashed the face off these pretenders with this mind warping piece (it’s on the inside of the box). If you live in Birmingham, or perhaps are within sensible commuting distance, we recomend an inspection. Joe Rush has also made a new piece as part of this series – more to come on that very soon…

Mutational doings

Oh hello there, how’s it going? I went to see one of the Mutation Stations the other day and found Matt mid-mute with a 14 cylinder helicopter engine. It’s one artistic piece of engineering that’s about to be reborn under the supervision of metal gynacologist Mr. Joseph Rush (Phd, Mtt-cup) – who I understand is also about to give birth to a robo Tiger,  unnatural history should be taught in schools!

Out of the shadow – Part 1

Posted in News, one foot in the grove, Photography & Images with tags , , , , , , on October 1, 2009 by hugotoland

Out of the Shadow is the title of the photography area in ‘One foot in the grove’ and will also be a regular post on the blog  providing an insight to some of the rich cultural heritage of Ladbroke Grove and the West Way.

The Latimer Road ramp was the first giant halfpipe of its kind in the UK.  This is a classic  image from the cover of RAD way back in 1987. Proof that the derlict land created by  the building of the West Way provided a breeding ground for generations of talent and style.

The sheer height also gave a valid reason to donning your kneepads when dropping in for the frst time and some of Skate boarding’s biggets names hit that ramp and the memories of that time are still fresh in their minds.
