Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , on April 23, 2010 by jack lomax

Her highness The Baroness Carrie von Reichardt and sculptor Nick Reynolds look like they’ve finally finished their session with the elephant Phoolan and all the Treatment Rooms crew – epic effort to make this incredible piece, it’s been a real labour of love for them. Justly rewarded by Phoolan’s positioning at The Natural History Museum. Brrrring on the elephant stampede!

Documenting Documentary

Posted in Art, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2010 by jack lomax

So there are quite a few different bits of documentary video floating around about Street Art. Most of them are painfully standard I think. Man does painting, man sits still and talks about painting. If you click the ‘Video Gallery’ tab to the right and scroll to the bottom you’ll see some of our video’s that are a bit doccy (Dr. D vs Brown and Cameron + One Day at Cordy House). We try to do something at least a bit different…

Here is one that was posted on Wooster Collective that does follow the ‘see picture, talk about picture’ format but it’s well constructed, what do you reckon to it?

Also, there’s a new one coming out called ‘New Brow, The Rise of Underground Art’. It’s showing at Westbourne Studios and we’re going to see it this week. Critical judgement will be passed! So check back next week if you could give a flying monkey’s…

Elephants Invade London!

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2010 by jack lomax

Not real ones. These are a herd of 200 fibreglass elephants descending on the parks, streets and squares of London this Spring. Our friends Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness and Mr Spunky are 2 of 200 specially chosen artists (including Marc Quinn, Jack Vettriano and Sacha Jafri as designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Lulu Guinness) who will be bringing their own style to these elephantastic canvesses. Here’s Carrie’s Tiki truck picking up the naked individual in question…

Baroness Carrie and Senior el Spunkerino will be collaborating with the artist Nick Reynolds (son of Great Train robber Bruce Reynolds and harmonica player with the band Alabama 3) on one of the elephants. The unique sculptures will then be auctioned in the summer amdist what’s sure to be a meeeja clamour as Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Michael Palin are all in on it. The funds raised go to Elephant conservation projects across Asia.

Carrie says “I really believe that ours will be a real show stopper piece, mutated and mosaiced to reveal the realities of what is happening to the Indian elephant.” There’s more at Carrie’s ‘site  www.carriereichardt.co.uk and you can contact Elephant Family, the official charity and organisers of the campaign at www.elephantfamily.org

Remi Rough vs. Jaybo

Posted in Art, Video with tags , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2010 by jack lomax

Here at Mutate Britain’s throbbing Head Quarters we like it when you send us stuff. Remi Rough sent this video, which admittedly has been out for a few weeks now but it’s an art battle that lets you compare the processes and raw creativity of two different artists, which I like.

If you want to send us something then mutatebritain@gmail.com is the address – big ups to you all individually but also as a collective, well done, carry on… oh wait, I’m going to put up this video of Pure Evil that I tripped over while rambling around – if  only ’cause it made me laugh, cue the music…
