Invada Record's label boss and Portishead member Geoff Barrow is to curate a days worth of music, film and art at Bristol's legendary Colston Hall venue, which has recently been extended, adding a brand new 30 million pound building onto the existing structure. The 'Invada Invasion' takes place on Saturday 26th September...
As part of the days events there is to be an exhibition entitled 'An Alternative Portrait Of Edward Colston'.
This is my take on the man who, amongst other things, became extremely wealthy, mainly from slavery...
I have to say that I was quite stuck on this one and in the end did this pretty weird looking piece where his wig is made of skulls and cables and his head of speakers.
I use my drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely
intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to
dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. I was trained in the
traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced
by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others. I use a combination of
graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am
now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie.
